We loved this tour. Small boat/raft so it felt very personalized. We enjoyed the bumps and being so close to the water. The snorkeling was great. Leanne and Sean were wonderful guides. Sean was full of information, fun facts and answered all our questions. We were very glad not to be on one of those bigger boats with lots of people in the water at the same time. I felt safe, with full freedom to roam around. We didn't see any dolphins but that's luck of the draw. I would go out with this tour again.

We went on the Lana'i Dolphin half-day tour. Never went in the dozen times we've visited Maui...and will do their tour again when we return with our other family & friends and for whale watching.
Leianne & Sean were very knowledgable & hospitable. We were within a few dozen dolphins and swam with lots of colorful fish amongst the healthy reef & coral. Beautiful!
A very well-deserved thank you to them!! We will definitely refer this tour to our friends in Seattle.

This is the best adventure I have ever been on. Tom and Povi took us on an unforgettable day trip. No lie - we came upon at least 100 dolphins who seemed to be putting on a show just for us. Our group had different degrees of experience in diving and snorkeling but Tom and Povi made sure that each of us were comfortable in our surroundings. Their knowledge and kindness made this a great trip for all of us. We spent 10 days in Maui and this is the most memorable part of our trip. Too bad you can only give this a five star rating. I would like to give it 10 stars.

Tom and Povi were really nice tour guides. The day we went we saw three types of dolphins, bottle nose, spinner, and spotted. They claim that it was very rare to get to see as many as we did, but we were extremely pleased!! The snorkeling was great too because they took us to beautiful water with lush coral and marine life. Hank also helped us out at the slip with lots of information about the area and where to eat. We really appreciate everything they taught us! This trip is a must!!!!!

The views were spectacular; we saw sea turtles, dolphins, and countless beautiful fish. Tom and Sean really knew their stuff, they talked to us the whole time and even shared many riddles with my kids. They have great respect for the ocean and really shared that with us. They made everyone feel safe and really went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. Tom and Sean were funny, kind, and entertaining. This was by far the highlight of our Maui trip! Highly recommend!
