“Great Snorkeling trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

We went on the West Maui Snorkel trip on the Teralani 3 with Captain Pam and Yorkie, and the other guys whose names escape me. We started off with refreshments and a snack for the trip up to Honalua Bay.
They record HD video of the trip on the boat and underwater and you have the option to buy a DVD for $69. There was no pressure on the upsell though. We had our own waterproof camera so opted not to go with that.
There is also an option for Snuba for an extra $69.
Once we got in the water we had about an hour to explore, and it was pretty amazing, turtles, morays, all kinds of interesting fish and Coral. They guys showed us where the turtles like to hang out and we got a real treat of seeing one swimming at the surface.
On the way back the sails were out and the bar was open. We had some nice sandwiches and relaxed for the sail.
Anyone can drive to that bay and hop in the water, but I think this trip was well worth it for the relaxing sail and the food and drinks as well as convenience.

“Teralani Dinner Cruise is a wonderful way to experience a Maui Sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

My husband Jeff and I were recently treated to a beautiful dinner cruise aboard the Teralani2 with Captain Kevin and crew. We set off on Ka'Anapali beach and experienced beautiful views of the islands of Lanai and Molokai while sailing along with the warm trade winds. We enjoyed delicious food and drinks and the crew could not have been more nice and attentive. This dinner cruise was one of the highlights of our wonderful Maui vacation. We would definitely cruise again with the Teralani2. Next trip, whale watch!

Thanks again Captain Kevin and crew

“Best Thing we did on Maui”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

The crew on Teralani were professional, fun and provided a very memorable snorkeling experience. Captain, Kevin, Eric and crew Yorkey and camera guys made us all feel comfortable and safe.
The value of this trip is amazing....light breakfast of fruit and delicious breads, coffee and juice started our excursion. After snorkeling lunch consisted of BBQ hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, pasta salad, and all the trimmings. Mixed drinks were included and very delicious! You must try the Captains Special Sea Breeze!
Snorkeling took place in a protected bay and offered beautiful views of corals, colorful fish of many different kinds and sea turtles! A wonderful experience for first timers and a great time for seasoned snorkelers.
A very special touch on our journey home, the crew came around with chocolate chip cookies and milk! They thought about everything! Book this trip early in your vacation because it fills up quick and this is an excursion NOT to miss!

“POOR customer service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

POOR cust Svce. Their office did not communicate 2 kids in our RSVP of 10 to the boat despite our 4 times confirming our RSVP. So after shoving off, the boat came back to shore & kicked all 10 of us off. We brought our own life jackets & kids were so excited to be o the boat, but that ended quickly.

When I immediately called their office they had the proper head count & were surprised that the boat kicked us off. After they admitted it's their fault all they did was say "sorry" we'll refund your $. No offer of trying to rebook, no vouchers, nothing but a "don't let the door hit you in the butt". Ruined the entire evening for 3 generations on a family reunion vacation.

Come on! Really! Crappy customer Svce! We were all nice thru this whole process, but honestly do not use them. There are plenty if other charter companies out there.

“Sunset Dinner Sail”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

I took this on 10/1/12. I was told check in was at 3:00 pm, we finally started to check in at 3:45. The only place to park was in the Whalers Village garage at $6.00 an hour, my total for the evening was $27.00. My biggest complaint was the 2 women running the bar and buffet. The worst one was named after a small canine Terrier, she was the worst, very rude and irritating. I think the second one just learned from her.
