We had the best snorkel and sail on Trilogy V yesterday on the 'Discover Molokini' snorkel tour. The captain and the crew were fantastic!!!!! I cannot say enough about how wonderful the service was. From the time we left to port until we arrived back, they were there with food, drinks and even in the water showing us turtles. We went to two snorkel locations. We saw turtles on the south shores of Wailea and then headed over to Molokini. When we arrived at Molokini there were only 2 other boats at the crater and by the time we had been there about 1/2 an hour we had the place to ourselves!!!! The snorkeling was the best with amazing visibility at both locations. We even got some sailing in once the wind conditions improved. We highly recommend Trilogy, it is a must if you are on Maui and want to snorkel.

Took the Trilogy Catamaran from Lahania harbor over to Lanai for the day. Cannot say enough about this trip! Captain Brian and his crew Jason and Thomas were the best. Left the harbor at 9:45 for Lanai about 2 hours over there. We saw dolphins so he turned the catamaran toward them for a few minutes. They served hot cinnamon rolls (yummy) on the way over along with fresh cut up fruit and turkey wraps. Arriving in Lanai you could take an hour and a half Van tour with some local Ladies who took you around. Then you get dropped off on a gorgeous beach to snorkel( all equipment provided ) beach chairs also available along with chips and salsa. We were then treated to a lunch of chicken , noodles , veg and a salad all prepared by the crew. On the way back it's ice cream time and then Mai Tai's if you want. Overall I highly recommend this day trip. Lanai has only 3000 residents and 2 resorts run by the Four Seasons.

We had a fabulous time on the Trilogy during our recent trip to Maui. We took the Molokini Snorkel trip with Captain Kevin, Captain Jason, Tim and Chad. They were great fun, provided an entertaining and safe environment for snorkeling, and served us terrific food. All in all it was a great adventure. I was impressed that they were able to modify their route to make the best of the day's weather and sea conditions. Highly recommended, will do it again on our next visit to Maui!

Had a great time with Kevin (the captain) along with Kai and Chris were great. Had an amazing time with my wife on our anniversary on the sunset cruise. Would recommend to anyone looking for something different. Super friendly and had appetizers and drinks ready for us at the right moment.

I spent hours researching which trip we should take since all had awesome reviews, but in the end figured everything is going to be great - and it really was. We went on the 'Kaanapali Snorkel' tour and it was fantastic! I can't remember the captain's name (Kevin?), Mike and Chris were taking care of us. From the moment we met up, up to the end of the tour, service was exceptional (in caps). The fed us, brought us drinks and picked up our trash. Food included chicken, salad, rolls, corn, salsa, tons of fruit, and ice cream - all surprisingly tasty, much better than you'd expect to have on a boat. The guys really took care of everything to the point where one doesn't even have to move from one seat should they choose not to.

We headed south (to a spot I couldn't tell you the name of) and swam around, seeing all kinds of fish and some turtles.

Overall a great experience! I can see now why Trilogy is rated so well on Trip Advisor. If you don't have a catamaran trip scheduled, I highly recommend it! Snorkeling off-shore is just not the same. I'm sure all of the companies will take you to most of the same spots and provide you with everything you need, but my wife and I were very happy with Trilogy as our first choice and will choose them next time without hesitations.

Thank you Trilogy and the crew of October 22nd, 2013!
