First off, the catamaran was extremely clean, the crew was well dressed (neat uniforms) and organized. The food was hot (yummy sweet rolls), fruit (plenty of variety) and beverages.....good choices. On the way to the island, the crew explained all sorts of activities and the captain was a "joy" to be with.....all created a nice atmosphere for us. Once on Lanaii, everything was prepared in a very professional manner in addition to explaining the whole situation with a sense of humor thrown in. Well worth the trip in every way!

Another perfect trip with the Trilogy family! We love sailing with these guys! We have gone out with them at least half a dozen times and are always impressed. The crew are fun, the food is fabulous, and they actually sail! Captain Kevin, Carrie, and Kama were great on this last trip. Wish we could be there now!

Overall a fun day (a full eight hours) day trip to Lanai. A great crew with a clean, well maintained catamaran. Plenty of food and drink on the boat and good to take the van trip into Lanai City to see what you may not otherwise experience and to learn about the island and the people. The time on the beach to snorkel is very short if you take the van trip into town however and it felt a little hurried. Snorkeling is not the greatest but a beautiful beach. The BBQ before you sail back to Lahaina is decent: grilled chicken breast, peas (which was kind of weird to be served in the islands), a tasty noodle salad and rolls. Mai tais, wine and beer available on the way back (first round was on the house) along with a little ukulele and singing entertainment.

My family and I have sailed with trilogy 5 times! We always do the discover Kaanapali snorkel trip to honolua bay. This last trip we spotted white tip reef sharks! The staff is 75%of what makes the trip so enjoyable. The food is first rate and there is plenty of it! Take it from this repeat customer....you will not be disappointed!!

My wife and I had a fantastic time on our snorkeling trip with Captain Yoshi (sp?) and his crew. On the way to Molikini one of the crew members spotted a school of spinner dolphins (which is a rare sight along this part of Maui's coast). He slowed down the catamaran and followed the dolphins for a while so that we could observe them diving and playing in the water. Then off to Molikini where we saw a variety of fish, and another special stop where we could swim with the green sea turtles. Breakfast and lunch (both served on the boat) were excellent. What made the trip even more memorable was that the crew did such a fantastic job helping everyone and answering everyone's questions regarding the surrounding area, sea life, boating, or any other questions anyone had. Captain Yoshi even allowed us at the helm to steer the boat and gave us a couple of sailing lessons. Everyone had a fantastic time and I highly recommend Captain Yoshi and Trilogy Excursions .
