“Great day of snorkeling AND whale watching!”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Very friendly and helpful staff. We signed up for snorkeling and had a great time. On the way back the captain told us that it was a good day for whale watching too - and he was right. Definitely recommend this for a fun day on Maui.

“Sunset cocktails amazing!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Went for cheaper option of cocktails on a sunset sail. Soo worth it. The drinks were free flowing and the food plentiful. Even got a bit of whale watching thrown in! Staff were a credit and it was a highlight of our honeymoon for me.

“Fantastic day of Snorkeling and Fun”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

This was a fantastic day of snorkeling and fun. We got on at about 9:30 from Ka'anapali Beach, and we headed toward the snorkeling location. The weather was beautiful, and the boat was great. On the way to snorkeling, there was an offer for "snuba," which is scuba diving with the tank floating on a raft. It was an additional fee, but a great opportunity. The snorkeling was great; clear water and easy going for beginners. There was even a lifeguard on the boat that sat on the water in case anyone needed assistance.
The lunch was great; they grilled burgers, chicken, and hot dogs and had an open bar after snorkeling. We even saw a few whales on the way back.
Overall, the trip was great. The crew was unbelievably helpful, friendly, and knowledgable. They worked really hard to ensure a great trip for everyone. I'd highly recommend Teralani for anyone coming to Maui!

“Whale Watching”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

I did the mid-day whale watching. I loved the staff and the size of the group on board. The staff members are extremely knowledgeable about many facts on whales which was entertaining for the group. I actually ran into one of the girls outside of the whale watch and she was extremely friendly which I appreciated. It is nice to see the passion these girls have for the ocean and ocean life! I would recommend Teralani Sailing to all who visit Maui. I am here for work so it was such a nice treat to have a day off. Thanks Teralani!

“We really enjoyed our first ever trip out in the ocean”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

We booked this based on reviews on TripAdvisor and were not disappointment. We went out with captain Pam and her friendly crew. It was our first ever venture into the ocean so we were bit nervous about sea sickness but fortunately we did not feel anything.

We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and had some excellent whale sightings. We also got to see some dolphins from a distance. The dinner had good mix of veg / non-veg options, but the veg Ratatouille was very sour as if someone had poured lot of vinegar into it. Even though they had an open bar I opted for Ginger Ale to avoid seas sickness.

The crew was very friendly. While we were searching for dolphins the crew members provided excellent information about the ocean, the nearby islands and the whales. Even though the bar was downstairs they regularly checked on people on the upper deck and brought them refills of drinks.

Somehow we ended up rescheduling this 3 times but Teralani was very cool about it.

This is a family friendly activity suitable for all age groups. We highly recommend Teralani.
