    Great little boat and snorkeling trip to Molikini!
    Carolyn_G, Aug 2023
    Great snorkeling adventure at Molikini. The crew was fantastic, informative and very conscientious of all the passengers and their ability levels. Would certainly do this trip again when back in Maui.
    Magical boat ride to Lanai

    Magical boat ride from Lahaina to Lanai. Saw dolphins who played and swam alongside the boat gave us a great show. Saw colorful marine life in a scenic protected cove with calm blue waters next to reddish black rock cliff walls. Amazing hospitality from a very caring and helpful boat staff. Will definitely return.

    Friendly crew. Anchored very close to crater! Had a full hour seeing many species of underwater life! Was able to walk to boat from our condo a plus!
    Clearwater snorkeling with plenty of tropical fish.
    Larry_S, Aug 2022
    This is the if you just want to experience beautiful clear Molokini waters and the tropical fish. You can experience plenty of turtles snorkeling off the beach near turtle town. Loved it!
    Wonderful experience

    Will never risk the time again
    Robin_B, Jul 2022
    They canceled on us !! Wouldn’t recommend it. Only had this trip planned and it was a bust very disappointing!
    not worth the money
    Teresa_V, Jul 2022
    Very dissapointed to say the least. The area they take you to ( far away feom the crater) has barely any fish to see. You can see the same fish off the shore. Maybe a good trip for beginners. Son’t waste your money.
    The guides were excellent...
    Jennifer_F, Jul 2022
    The guides were excellent and there were so many beautiful fish to see. They did an amazing job navigating.
    Bill_M, Jul 2022
    Boat captain was rude. He said inexperienced swimmers and snorkelers would not be allowed to get in the water. That restriction is not discussed before setting out for Molokini. Disappointed.
    Very disappointed
