Owner description: Suzzy Robinson "The Snorkel Whisperer" brings over 30 years experience of scuba diving and snorkeling off Maui waters to each and every snorkel tour. These days it's all about numbers/business/bottom line. Not with Suzzy - Suzzy has held true to her baseline of quality not quantity which is almost extinct. Snorkeling off the shoreline in a small group of 2-7 persons allows you the VERY BEST Maui waters have to offer. It is a discovery snorkel tour for all ages and sill levels. Shallow water sites No experience necessary Patient Instruction Small Groups Top of the line snorkel equipment provided All ages With this unique tour you won't be exposing yourself to large boats with herds of people, rough seas, contained snorkel area, deep waters, and limited reef and fishes to see. Suzzy's passion for life, ocean and Maui are what you can expect. You too will walk away from your snorkel tour with a thrilling Peak Life Experience that will last forever.

Our snorkle tour with Suzzy was by far the BEST tour we've been on. My 15-year old daughter, 11-year old son, my husband and I had a wonderful experience seeing all the different fish ranging from fish two inches long to giant sea turtles. Blanketing the crystal clear ocean floor were miles of coral reefs; yellow, orange, and even blue! Suzzy took us about 250 feet into the ocean. She brought a boogie board for my husband and I to hang on to, as we were both beginners at swimming. I couldn't swim, so she gave me a life vest and pulled the boogie board with me. She provided us with excellent gear: goggles, snorkel, and a wetsuit (2 for the kids). She prepared us before going in by explaining how to breath and use flippers. She took the time to explain her passion by tutoring us on the different ocean-life, using detailed photographs and tangible coral. This was a lifetime experience and a definite must-do in Maui!! P.S. At the end of our tour, she gave us delicious cookies, farm-fresh pineapple, string cheese, granola bars, ice-cold water, goldfish, the works!!

We are still talking about our snorkelling experience with Jeffery and Josie in February. Carefully sharing the importance of viewing but not approaching Maui's precious marine life, both guides were as surprised as we were to watch this mama humpback glide past, her calf at her side. We still can't find the right words to express the majesty and grace of that moment which took all us all completely by surprise, watching a whale in the distance and waiting for it to surface again, when in fact, it was just below our feet.

Not only were Jeffery's instructions fun & entertaining, he took the time to teach us about all the creatures we would seeing. The information provided us with marine life details that made snorkelling one of our favourite pastimes, allowing us to explore all the beaches around us with confidence. Josie's patience allowed our inexperienced swimmers to keep up without fear, making their lesson as safe and exciting as everyone's.

Jeffrey was engaging and a great guide. He spent a few minutes teaching us about the fish we would see, and then pointed the varieties out as we swam. We saw about 8 turtles, as well. He also pulled the kids around on a boogie board so they did not get too tired. The company seemed well organized. The equipment was clean and in good shape. It was worth the few extra bucks, especially with Jeffrey's nice interaction with the kids.

We recently spent two weeks on Maui and did an awful lot, but our day snorkelling with Suzi was by far the best. It put the other snorkel tours to shame. We did the tour with our seven-year-old and 13-year-old sons, whose snorkelling abilities vary widely, but it was no problem. Suzi provided the best gear we've ever used, including a nice thick wetsuit for our youngest son who gets cold quickly. She also brought a boogie board and towed him around so he didn't have to swim to keep up with us the whole time.
The tour included some time on the beach where we got lots of interesting information about the reef and the fish we would see. The information Suzi provided about how to snorkel really set us up for success on our solo snorkelling trips.
On our tour we saw huge turtles, a beautiful coral garden and countless reef fish. After our tour we enjoyed tasty snacks on the beach.
We can't recommend this tour highly enough. you won't be disappointed.

On our trip to Maui, on recommendation from a friend, we contacted Suzzy for a snorkel tour. It was our first time ever snorkeling. Suzzy made the experience unforgettable! She was prompt, courteous, and attentive to the smallest of details. She had proper fitting gear for all of us, took the time to share her passion for the marine life and educating us on the nuances. Suzzy truly loves what she does and it certainly shows. She tailored the tour to our group. She even had an amazing assortment of homemade cookies on hand as well, Maui Gold pineapples to top it all off.

We can all safely say that because of her efforts, we will be snorkeling again.
If you are going to be in Maui, you have to contact Suzzy to arrange a great snorkeling experience.
