My wife and I had a very good time on the Trilogy sunset cruise leaving from Kaanapali Beach Hotel. Capt. Kevin, Carrie and Travis were friendly and helpful throughout. You do board from the beach and it is possible to get a bit wet up to the knees. However, we had no issues with this because of the help of the crew. 3 "aduit" beverages are included with the 2 plus hour tour and nonalchoholic drinks are unlimited. The appetizers were just enough and of a good variety. Book through its website in advance (7 days?) for a bit of a discount. Parking is validated at the hotel and we stayed after for a light dinner with friends at Whalers Village without a problem. Although, you could easily get your fill for the evening from the offered food. For us, it was just enough time on the water and, of course, the sunset was beautiful.

We went with a group of 16 while on a family get together in Maui and it was excellent. Captain Kevin and the crew were wonderful. Great service from when you walk on the boat to when we left. It was a little overcast the day we went, but it was still a lot of fun. Everyone enjoyed the snorkeling and two of us did SNUBA, which I can highly recommend. The food was all very good also. If you are going to go snorkeling in Maui, Trilogy is your best bet.

This tour was awesome!! We left from Maalena harbor and tool an hour boat ride to Molokini crater. Everyone working the boat was very friendly. During our ride they served us wonderful homemade cinnamon rolls and fresh fruits. We snorkeled for an hour at the crater. There was also a small slide off the back of the boat you could go down. We saw a lot of brightly colored fish, beautiful coral and a Moray eel. After we finished there we went to a second site where we saw a bunch a green sea turtles!! And some more coral and fish. After the second site we were served a picnic lunch on the boat of salad w homemade dressing, rice, rolls and chicken. Everything was wonderful!! They also had salsa w pineapple and chips. On the ride back they served us chocolate sundaes.
It was an amazing trip and I would recommend it to anyone!

Trilogy was recommended to us by some friends who had previously gone on one of their trips. Oh boy they did not let us down! We had a warm welcome and were very well taken care of. They provided drinks and food throughout the entire trip. The captain and his crew were outstanding and knowledgeable and so very approachable and really likeable guys. They really made this experience amazing. The snorkeling itself was mind blowing. Molokini was awesome, we saw lots of different types of fishes. I thought the corals would be more bright and colorful, perhaps I was swimming at the wrong spot. Swimming with sea turtles at the second snorkel site was an experience I will never forget. Trilogy Excursions rock!!

Family of our with teens, Molokini snorkel trip, including 2nd stop near Makena Point. Molokini itself fairly good coral and wildlife. The visibility was excellent at Molokini, though not so good at the second location (winds/waves were relatively high, so not surprising and certainly not Trilogy's fault!). Plenty of time at each snorkel spot. Instructions for anyone who needed them. Good safety sense from the entire crew. Crew members friendly, professional. Excellent lunch - rated by one family member as the best on our entire trip (Teriyaki chicken). Remember to liberally reapply sunscreen for the ride back - better still, use a coverup!!
