This snorkeling experience was the best we’ve ever been on! The crew was fantastic-always checking in on us- there was plenty of food and drink, we got to snorkel for over an hour, there were lots of picture opportunities, and they provided prescription goggles. We had a FANTASTIC experience. Highly recommend!

This was an amazing experience. The staff on the boat were super friendly and very attentive. We went to a great spot for snorkeling and enjoyed every minute. I would highly recommend this tour and would do it again if I return to Maui.

This was a great experience. We loved actually going under 133 feet to see the reef, the ship and even a few sharks. The guide was very helpful and entertaining. We would definitely recommend this tour.

Pretty great and unique experience. Got to see a few sharks around the sunken ship and a few eagle rays as well as all the other fish

Worth every dime! Courteous, friendly crew. Good timely boat and snorkel experience.
