Terrific Experience For Every “Tour” Aspect
Sheryl_R, Aug 2023
Wow I need more stars to rate this experience accurately. My husband and I are 67/68 years old and have been on A LOT of snorkel tours in Hawaii and the Caribbean. This was the best of best. The Sea Maui staff from Captain Molly to crew were all extremely attentive, helpful, friendly, and fun. The crew made sure everyone had food and drinks, even delivering them to us, and checked back periodically to refresh drinks (yes, even when the complimentary booze flowed after snorkeling). We stopped quite awhile to view a pod of jumping, spinning dolphins who swam around and in front of the catamaran. Spent 1 1/2 hours snorkeling in Honolua Bay. The sea life and turtles did not disappoint. Very good snorkeling! Snorkel gear was in good shape. The sails went up for our return trip to shore. Couldn’t ask for anything more.
Great snorkeling, amazing...
Daniel_M, Aug 2023
Great snorkeling, amazing staff, easy instruction to follow. Food and beverages were also amazing. Smaller boat so less people. Great excursion and loved by the whole family.

The boat ride to and from was beautiful and the snorkeling was as well. We even said we would love to be able to book again before vacay ends. Highly recommend

Anthony_C, July 2023
Crew was awesome!!! Food was much better than what we expecting!!! Got to see tons of colorful fish, octopus, coral and even several sea turtles. Absolutely worth every penny. All you need to bring are towels and cash to tip the crew. Buy the photos well worth the price!!! Thanks!

The snorkeling was incredible, everyone onboard was super accommodating the Captain was awesome, funny and very detailed, we were able to swim with the turtles and we actually got to see a pod of dolphins which made the trip complete. I would recommend this excursion to anyone! You won’t regret it.

Allison_S, July 2023
Amazing trip! Outstanding service! We thoroughly enjoyed the crew. Great snorkeling. We were lucky to see spinner dolphins and sea turtles! Best excursion on the island!
So fun!
Melissa_P, July 2023
We loved this tour! We sailed with Captain Molly and her fantastic crew. They were kind, professional and friendly, we knew we were in good hands! We saw an abundance of fish, dolphins, turtles and even an octopus. The underwater photographer was also available and our photos are really good. I think the smaller boat and great crew provided are more intimate and fun experience than the bigger boats we have been on. I highly recommend this tour.
Don’t miss this experience.
Kristi_W, July 2023
