“Beautiful dinner cruise and sail.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

This is such a clean and well run operation. The dinner prepared fresh on board was good. The service was excellent, the drinks were strong and well made. The people we sailed with were all very nice. The only negative is that I booked this for the AM snorkel and they cancelled on me. Beware that if there are not enough people booked they could cancel.

“Best Family Day Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Our entire family had an amazing time on the Hula Girl (2 adults, 15 year old boy, 13 year old girl, and 3 year old boy). Matt, Oria and Heidi were a wonderful crew--so friendly and pleasant and professional. The owner, Inca, gave us a discounted rate for being active-duty military and brand-new residents of Hickam AFB, Oahu. I was a little concerned about having to pay extra for lunch, but the reviews of the food won me over. We paid $15 for an amazing lunch of fresh mahi mahi with one of the most delicious curry sauces I have ever had. You can't get a burger for $15 on Maui.

The boat is brand new and spotlessly clean. There's a nice bathroom and shower and A/C, etc. It is easily the nicest boat in Lahaina. The snorkeling equipment was in excellent condition and clean. We loved sitting on the cushions on the front of the catamaran while my husband and toddler talked to Captain Matt up on deck. We saw 10-12 sea turtles on our way to Honolua Bay. They had equipment that fit our toddler and he was able to snorkel using a boogie board with a round cut-out. We have had trouble getting him to put his head in the water, but not for this!

Our teenagers declared Monday "the best family day ever", and our three-year-old Samuel cried when he had to leave the boat. He spent an hour snorkeling using the boogie board with the cut-out. Yesterday, he saw Hula Girl drive by from our pool at Honua Kai and got upset again because he wanted to get on. Hula Girl is a beautiful boat with a wonderful team. We will do it again when we visit Maui.

“Wonderful sunset cruise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

We decided to take a sunset cruise with friends on the Hula Girl, and we were impressed with the cruise. There is plenty of space on this catermaran, which was like new. You can sit on an observation deck, in a large bar and seating area, or on the bow. The staff takes orders for food or appetizers at the start, and they can make an awesome mai tai. We would definitely recommend this for a different view of west Maui.

“The most beautiful catamaran”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

This was my second time on the Hula Girl. First was a whale watch, today was a snorkel trip to Honolua. The boat is gorgeous and very clean; the dining room is air conditioned and the food is superb, ala carte. The crew is friendly and very helpful fulfilling all your needs.
There are a few other boats that go to this snorkel spot, all are very nice but this boat and the crew are really a class act.
