On your private charter Captain Woody caters to your every need and lets you decide what you would like to do for the day, whether it be snorkeling with hundreds of tropical fish, ancient green sea turtles, eels, and other sea creatures, fishing, looking for dolphins, whale watching, or just enjoying the natural beauty of Maui from the water.

Captain woody and Paris took great care of our family. We have two kids ages 9 and 6, and they walked away from this trip educated and ready to snorkel all the time. Our 6 year old jack was nervous, but they knew exactly how to handle him! We swam with the sea turtles and it was amazing. Stop looking and book this trip!

Don't waist your time with all the other so called "snorkeling" trips.. hire the most professional captain on the maui seas... Woody and Paris take you to the most beautiful sea life in maui. From the time you arrive at then dock you are treated as if your royalty....

My boyfriend and I booked a trip to Hawaii last minute and captain woody managed to fit us in! (but this experience is a MUST do in Hawaii!! So be sure to call him as soon as you know the dates you would like to go!) Paris, woodys assistant, was so nice! She took beautiful pictures of us underwater (bring a water proof camera!!!)... We got to swim with turtles in a secret cove! The turtles would come so close to us, so we got great pictures! This experience was the highlight of our trip! woody and Paris Jew so much about the ocean and Hawaii it was like a private tour also! He showed us famous people's houses and took us to great snorkeling areas! 5 stars well earned!

Captain Woody and Paris were absolutely amazing! This was a family trip with three different generations and a memory maker beyond belief. We have been to Maui about half a dozen times and have NEVER experienced a!nything quite like Woody's charter. This was my daughter and her family's first trip to Maui so we decided to take them snorkeling. Woody not only prepared us snacks along the way, he also provides lunch and a running commentary about Maui and the ocean around us. Paris, along with Woody, provided an educational experience unmatched in our experience. Paris was particularly good w/our 9 yr old granddaughter. We will never go on another charter without Woody and Paris. There are really no words to explain our amazing trip. I highly recommend Captain Woody.

I read the reviews two months ago, convinced my wife and her friend that this would be the best experience of their lives and it cancelled the day before the snorkel trip, which was supposed to be right now. Their vacation on Maui was a short 4 days. Today was theb snorkel trip and they're on a raft trip instead of this boat. I sincerely hope it was mechanical problems and not lack of bodies on the boat that cancelled it. My wife calling me balling her eyes out because the big trip on her final day was cancelled sucks just a little bit. It was advised to get another snorkel tour, with Honalua Bay mentioned as a possible destination. Little did they know my wife had spent the last two days in Honalua Bay learning to snorkel and getting ready for Capt Woody's trip.
