My husband and I went on the Leilani yesterday (1/9/17) for some adventure! We had never been to Molokini before and as Maui locals, we figured it was about time.
The crew (Captain CJ, Tanya, and Carlos) were the best! They were so witty and charismatic. They had awesome chemistry with each other, and over the course of the trip, built great rapport with the passengers. (By the end of the trip, the crew basically knew us by name!)
The clarity of the water was stunning! I mean, it looked like we were on a lake, or the water was actually clear resin! So, even though we didn't leave the boat we saw so many cool sea creatures. Lots of fish, a few dolphins, and out in the distance there were whales! My husband and I even saw a honu!
I was terribly seasick while we were out at Molokini. (Yes, I took a Dramamine before the trip!) I was so touched by how much everyone cared about me. Other passengers were asking if I was all right and giving me advice on what I could do to feel better. Carlos (crewmember) even put his Seaband on my wrist! (Which REALLY helped. Carlos, you practically saved my life!)
It felt like I learned a lot on the trip. Captain CJ talked about Molokini being a Marine Life Preserve, about being reef safe, and about some of the marine life we saw. Aside from my seasickness, which wasn't anyone's fault, I had the time of my life. I would definitely recommend this tour to others.
