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.

Ed Robinson is absolutely the best snorkel guide ever!! My 10 year old daughter was very nervous about snorkeling so we decided to book Maui Snorkel Tours based on Trip Advisor Reviews. We booked the tour on our first full day there so we could snorkel on our own with our daughter for the rest of the trip if she liked it! Ed was so patient and kind with us...not only did Paige like snorkeling that day ..she snorkeled everyday for the rest of our trip. She has a true passion for it now and can't wait for our next snorkel vacation. Ed is such a treasure and he is so amazingly talented at photography. We had an incredible day with clear water and sun shining so the pictures look like they are out of a book or magazine. The best part of the day was getting to swim with 4 or 5 sea turtles!! Absolutely the best day ever!! Thanks so much Ed!! :)

Thank you Suzy (and Jeffrey) for creating such a magical memory for my Children, It was a highlight of our trip to Maui and since our trip a year ago I have recommended you at least a dozen times and friends come back to say Wow!!! It was the best which after most recently recommending you I am writing this ..... I wanted you to know that even after all this time we still talk about it. Such an education, so much fun and the respect for the environment and ocean habitat that you instilled in my Children has stayed with them to this day. Thank you..... and the homemade cookies are still be raved about.... SIMPLY THE BEST!

Ed Robinson, our guide, was fantastic. He was extremely patient with our 9-year-old daughter. He was also a wealth of knowledge about marine life and the formation of the Hawaiian islands. And finally, he took some great photos of us. Would highly recommend this company.

My family wanted to snorkel while in Maui, we looked at the snorkel / boat trips to the small islands but decided they were too big and commercial. We heard about Suzzy and her company, Maui Snorkel Tours, where just the 6 of us were the entire tour. We had all been snorkeling before but had never gone with a guide. Well from the start, let me say Suzzy was much more than a guide, she quickly became our friend. We followed her in our car to a great spot up the coast near Lahaina, she provided everything we needed and all the equipment was like new, including wet suits. We even had a short lesson on what we would see and the basics of the equipment. The coral reefs were beautiful and the assortment of fish was a pleasure to see. The best was still to come as she took us to the " turtle car wash". We saw probably 20 turtles swimming, diving and getting cleaned. Suzzy cares so much about the environment and making sure we all got to see everything - It gives you a good feeling knowing there are people like her in the world. After our tour was over there were many great snacks including fresh pineapple and homemade banana bread - Thanks Suzzy - we loved our day with you

Thank you Jeffery for the amazing experience!
Previous reviews are bang on! We travelled to Maui on a Make-a-Wish trip for my eldest son who is 14 with our other three sons in tow (11, 10, 1). Jeffery was so patient and full of information (the kids actually retained the information and were able to name many fish and facts about them at the Maui Ocean Centre days later).
We had the baby with us, and Jeffery made sure to find us a perfect beach spot in the shade (and away from ants) so that we could switch off and one parent stay on the beach with the baby while the other was out adventuring.
We were all first time snorkelers, and although we are very comfortable in our fresh waters at home, nerves were a bit high to be out in the ocean. Jeffery managed to keep us all calm, and gave us the ability to explore and enjoy at our own paces (not an easy task with a large family).
Our experience was out of this world!!! We experienced the beauty of the reef, saw many spectacular fish and other ocean dwellers and even had the magical experience of swimming with a sea turtle.
The post exploration snacks were filling and nutritious...granola, cheese, great banana bread, and a lesson in perfect
pineapple preparation from Jeffery.
On return to Maui, we will most certainly choose this adventure again.
Mahalo Suzy for the special gifts that you sent along for our son, he was surely blessed on this trip.
