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.

“The best in Hawaii!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

Previous reviewers wrote exactly what I felt. Jeffery Taylor's first calmed me down after stressful travel. There were only two of us that sunny morning, so it was a semi-private tour. He provided gear that fitted just right, including goggles for nearsightedness. (He might not be able to accommodate everyone's vision, but I saw clearly! An orientation to the tides, sand trails and fish prepared us, but the best of all is: Jeffery knows the name of each turtle who swam up to greet us. (they think he's one of their family). Throughout the tour, Jeffery was connected by a wrist cord to a boggie board and we held on as needed. His eyes were always moving...to locate fish or coral, check our positions, observe other swimmers, and announce his brother turtles. Afterward, he served healthy snacks while we chatted and learned more about Maui. I'm practicing Jeffery's steps to cut a pineapple by letting gravity mingle the sweet juice from the lower end with the acidic juice at the stem. I'm still practicing his method to remove the skin. When anyone I know goes to Maui I'll be sure they know about Maui Snorkel Tours. Mahalo!

“Outstanding Snorkeling Adventure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

Our half a day with Suzy began with excellent direction, education of our oceans beautiful creatures and a fitting for the snorkeling equipment. Unexpectedly, a healthy monk seal approached the shore and decided to sun itself on the shore as we prepared to try snorkeling in the ocean for the first time. Suzy has been diving and snorkeling for 30 years. She knew to contact the island DNR concerning protection for the monk seal. We were impressed with Suzy and her unique knowledge of the ocean as we snorkeled. We saw an amazing Pelagic Jellyfish and many Sea Turtles. We loved the personal care Suzy provided! Mahola!

“Christmas Morning Snorkel Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

We were in Maui from December 18th to 26th, 2013. We chose Maui Snorkel Tours because we wanted a more intimate experience. Unfortunately, our original date for our snorkel tour had to be postponed due to weather. Suzzy said she will take us out no matter what and she meant it! We were rescheduled for the tour Christmas morning with Suzzy's husband Ed. What a treat!! It was myself, my husband and 2 kids, ages 9 and 6. Ed began with a lesson on the beach about all the sea life we were about to see and then we had a brief lesson about the snorkel gear. Then away we went!! It was amazing. The kids eventually got tired so they were able to hitch a ride on Ed's boogie board. Ed commented on all the sea life and we swam with turtles. Ed also brought his underwater camera and took amazing photo's of this unforgettable experience for us to treasure for year's to come. I would highly recommend Maui Snorkel Tours. This trip was the highlight of our Maui vacation; thanks to Ed and Suzzy!!

“Spectacular tour, amazing guide!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

We had an awesome snorkelling experience with Jeffery. He was very knowledgeable and took us to the best spot! He was very patient with our youngest son, held the interest of our teenager, and made sure that we all saw everything there was to see. We think we practically checked off every fish on the reef fishes card including seeing more than a dozen turtles! We would highly recommend Maui Snorkel Tours, Jeffrey, and definitely plan to snorkel with them again next year.

“BEST DAY EVER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

We had the BEST experience snorkeling with Suzzy! Our 6 year old was fearful of snorkeling and was adamant he wasn't going to do it. He met Suzzy and within minutes had a developed a trusted bond. He held on to her boogie board as we went far out onto a coral reef to watch the sea turtles. The entire time she talked to him and our 9 and 11 year old children about everything they were seeing. This left my husband and I to pull up the rear and explore at our leisure! Best decision ever to go with Suzzy and Maui Snorkel Tours! Highly recommend taking this tour!
Can't wait to come back!
