Passengers can experience destinations previously unimaginable due to the design of this boat. Our boat is a fast as any raft., but go where they can't. Take a chance let your imagination roam and come out on the best boat on Maui.

This trip was recommended by the concierge at my resort and was fantastic! Captain Dave is not your usual boat captain and tour leader - it was hysterical from the moment he arrived - DON'T GIVE THAT MAN ANY COFFEE! The trip was beautiful, the locations idyllic and even for a first time snorkeller it was a brilliant trip. Music, good company, beautiful sites, great boat and experiences you won't get on any other boat excursion!

If you do nothing else - book this trip!!!!

This is a great boat excursion. Captain Dave & Eric have a lot of knowledge as you round the island. If you see dolphins, whales or something exciting in the ocean they will stop or slow down to let everyone enjoy. Really good snorkeling spots and unlike Gilligan and the skipper they get you back to dock safely. Highly recommend!!

Ok, I couldn't help but read the "terrible" reviews left by people. They made me laugh! This trip is awesome. It is a bit more maui-kickback style (note my username) then some may be used to. I went with a friend and we had a great time. The crew was friendly and talkative. They kept us entertained and made the trip completely interactive. The ride was great and comfortable (for cool people, not for those hoping for a resort on the water). We saw a pakalolo plant growing free, dolphins, shipwrecks, and all kinds of cool stuff that a lot of tours miss. Skip the cattle boats with hundreds of whack-jobs around you. This kind of tour is for real people who can laugh and party and play and joke. Laid back? Then go on this trip. Stuck up? Forget about it!

To Cap'n Dave n Crew: Aloha! (the hello and love part)

Don't waste your time on other boat trips! We have tried many of the other snorkel trips, truly nothing compares to this trip!!! The snorkeling was excellent, the food was good, the Captains were great! No other trip takes you around the island, into sea caves and shows you real ship wrecks. We were very fortunate to see baby dolphins only about one foot long! I could not match that experience on any other excursion in Hawaii. This is a fantastic day of fun! A full 71/2 hours of fun.
