This trip was an amazing adventure. We went snorkeling on the Trilogy Excursion with Captain Caleb, Pat and Kie. The food was outstanding and brought to us. We went to two different coves to snorkel and sailed afterward. They were extremely nice and very accommodating!!! We felt very safe and under the best care!!! I would take this excursion again in a heartbeat!!! Thank you so much for an unforgettable trip!!!

We had been to Molokini twice and decided to try the Ka'Anapali tour for a change. It did not disappoint. The first thing that we appreciated was the fact that this tour was not as crowded the Molikini tour, the second was the location absolutely spectacular, and third and most important was the crew. We have done countless activities like this in the past, and the crew, Captain Kevin, Chris, and especially Carrie were the absolute best. Aug.12,2013

I highly recommend Trilogy to anyone that wants to have a fun day with a knowledgeable, caring staff take a Trilogy trip. We took the day trip to Lanai. My wife is not always strong and stable. The staff picked that up immediately. All day long, they went way beyond normal caring to insure she was ok and safe. While we didn't snorkel, those that did seemed to enjoy the time. A meal was served at the end of the day at Lanai. It was good with a lot of friendliness going around. On the return trip to Lahaina, the engines was shutdown and the sails we opened. This just made for a more fun day. On the return trip, Mai Tai's, beer, and ice cream were served. We will take another Trilogy trip on our next Maui visit.

Had a great trip down to slaughterhouse bay on May 11 and snorkelled with about 50 dolphins that followed us in, along with a half a dozen or so turtles as well. Must say that the crew consisting of Captain Kevin, Mark, Thomas and Kerry were excellent! Very informative, fun and really receptive to our needs catering for all skill levels. I would highly recommend them and would not hesitate on going with Trilogy again. Sailing back and surfing the waves was a great way to finish the trip! Special thanks to Kerri - photographer par excellence and a great personality as well.

Our family of 5 took the half day snorkel and sail trip with Trilogy (9AM-1PM). We had three crew members who could not have been friendlier and more knowledgeable about their boat, the location and all the wildlife we saw. The boat was large and clean with plenty of seating both in the sun and in the shade. We motored out to an amazing reef where the water was about 25' deep. We were then given our gear - all clean and in good working order. To enter the water, we could either jump off the side of the boat or go down a staircase they lowered into the water. One crew member floated near by, holding a surf board, and acting as a lifeguard, while the other two prepped lunch. After an hour of the best snorkeling we'd ever done (beautiful fish, lots of turtles), we came aboard for a delicious picnic lunch. After lunch we were given another 25 mins to snorkel, then we set off for home. On the way home, we sailed - it was slow going, as there was no wind, but so peaceful. Dessert was chocolate chip cookies. We have two teens and one 9 year old - we all thought it was our best day in Maui. We couldn't praise both the trip and the crew enough! Thank you for a wonderful day.
