based on 6 reviews

Loved the snorkeling, but there were a lot of people in the water which made it more difficult to swim without running into someone else. Staff and crew were excellent. Wish we could have Bonne to see the girls, but not the crews fault..... Murky water would not allow. And we were able to see a large group of humpbacks as we traveled back to the dock. Photographer did a phenomenal job of getting pictures of everyone, wildlife in the water, and whales on our return trip. Well worth the cost!

Better than I had ever expected. We wanted a quick snorkel and we got that plus a dozen whale sightings and the crew was incredible. I would highly recommend this.

Perfect afternoon- 2 hours on the boat and an hour snorkelling. The whales entertained us on the way.

Great experience! Nice, helpful, and friendly staff/crew. Highly recommended if visiting Maui.

Captain and crew were amazing. Very personable and helpful to make our excursion fun!
