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.

“Excellent snorkel experience for our children!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Suzzy took our family out this morning for a guided snorkel. We are a family of four: 2 adults who have snorkeled before and 2 children (ages 5 and 9) who have not. Suzzy was incredible! She took us to an amazing snorkel location, provided education about the fish we would see and about our equipment too. We all learned a lot. Then we got into the water and that's when the Snorkel Whisperer used her magic to teach my children how to snorkel. She kept them engaged, confident, and wowed as she toured us around the snorkel site. We saw some unbelievable sea life and I am beyond thrilled that my children have had this amazing first snorkel experience. The other great part? My husband and I were also snorkeling, and not struggling to teach our children. Suzzy took care of all details, top to bottom. What an A+ experience! I am very glad I spent my snorkel tour money on this tour and not on a crowded boat tour.

“Awsome Snorkel Adventure!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Suzzy Robinson led our small group of four on an amazing snorkel trip. Using her marine biology experience, she educated us before setting out on the types of sea life we would see. We went to a fabulous spot through a rain forest. We saw every sea creature she told us about including 6 sea turtles. It was absolutely excellent. She also gave us tips and helps with our gear before starting out. I highly recommend Suzzy. So much better than the group snorkel tours offered by the big guys!!

“Excellent way to introduce children to snorkeling”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

My husband and I love snorkeling and wanted our 3 girls (5, 7, and 9) to enjoy it as much as we do. As a result we booked a tour with Maui Snorkel Tour for our first day on Maui. It worked! The tour began with the kids and I being fitted for wet suits to minimize the chance of water temperature ruining the experience. He (Ed Robinson) then had us follow him to a couple different snorkeling sites. The first site he deemed too rough for the kids' first time. The second site was nearly perfect. He began by making sure the girls could use their snorkels in waist deep water. He used two different boogie boards just so that they could hold onto. He then led us through a two hour snorkel, continually pointing out all the different types of fish and coral at the reef. We also saw a huge turtle that the kids adored. Once finished snorkeling he provided us with a good snack while continuing his educational lesson. If you have kids (or adults) who you want to introduce to snorkeling this is a very good option. We did not book this tour for the "eco" portion, but after having such a knowledgeable guide we will definitely be looking for the eco option in the future.

“Awesome Snorkeling Experience!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Suzzy was definitely worth the price! She took us to a nice calm spot next to a rain forest with unique fish that would not be seen anywhere else. Instead of the usual going out in a boat and getting dumped in the ocean for an hour, Suzzy actually used picture books to give us a preview of what we would see so we knew what we were looking at, and pointed out all the different fish we saw when we were in the water. She knew the best spots for seeing seeing sea turtles, zebra eels, and lots of cool animals. She went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and provided us with everything, including wet suits and snacks. I would recommend this to people of all ages (even 80+!) that want a great snorkeling and learning experience.

“Private Snorkel Experience/Saw lots of marine life!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Suzy was our guide. Very knowledgable. Started off slow but once we got in the water it was an amazing!!! Suzzy was our guide and she led the way through the water the entire time and pointed everything out along the way. A sea turtle came for air right in front of us!!! I could practically reach out and touch it. This was the best way too see everything on a snorkeling experience. Highly recommend it!
