Crew was fantastic! Anna was so polite and friendly (so was the rest of the crew but i forgot their names, sorry if you're reading this) My mother has a lot of mobility issues walking but can swim fine. The crew was VERY accommodating and helped her both into and out of the water. This alone made the trip for me as i was really worried it would be too hard to help her into and out of the water. So glad she was able to experience everything.

The snorkeling was so fun! We didn't see any turtles but that's just the luck of the draw. We did see a lot of fish along the coral though.

Food and snacks were available and they made sure everyone was taken care of throughout the entire trip.

Highly recommend this charter, for their amazing service and personalities. Thank you! Mahalo

Luckily, I was able to secure a couple of tickets during an otherwise sold out week. I kept checking back for vacancy, and lucked out. This adventure was the highlight of our Maui trip. Fortunately, the weather was rather perfect, and the ocean was calm as well as clear. The crew was quite engaging. Capt. CJ was utterly humorous, yet very safety conscience. We set sail to the Molokini Crater to snorkel as a continental breakfast was being served. There we jumped into a splendid marine ecosystem with a variety of fish and other marine life under the full Hawaiian sun. The crew assisted those who were less experienced in the water, and there was a lifeguard on duty to watch over our group. I stayed out in the water until we were called back in to the boat, but you are allowed to board the boat as often as you like to take breaks and such. As we made it back onto the boat, a catered lunch of pulled pork, hot dogs, Cole slaw, and chips were being served. Our next stop was "Turtle Town". The First Mate, Nate, had great energy and report with the passengers. He jumped in the water to point out turtles at our second stop during his life guard duties. We got some great photos (uploaded), before our hour long jaunt back to the dock. The lovely crew brought up Mai Tais to the upper deck as we cruised. Ultimately, it was a great trip. I'm very grateful for such an adventure.

We were in Maui celebrating a wedding and rented this charter to go whale watching with close family and friends. Captain CJ made sure he tailored the day for exactly what we wanted, to see whales. We actually saw a bunch of whales thanks to Captain CJ who made it his mission for us to see these amazing animals. From the second we stepped on board to the amazing crew made sure we always had what we wanted whether it was a drink refill, food or just an exceptional experience. Nate was great and was so attentive to everyone on the charter, which was not easy with our large group. I highly recommend to the comfort of the boat but the amazing Captain and Crew made this an exceptional experience we will never forget!

We had a blast! Weather was perfect. We lucked out and saw two species of dolphins, bottle nose and spinners. Swam with turtles and saw a couple of mama whales and their babies. Food was food and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend a tour on the Leilani. Thanks for a great day!

We took our 2 teenagers ages 13 and 16 on this trip. It was fun and the captain and crew were kind and professional. They were fun and laid-back yet very safety conscious. They worked hard to make sure everybody had fun and sunblock and food. We went to Turtle town first to avoid the crowds which was a smart decision. I highly recommend them.
