    Fun, safe, and amazing first time snorkeling experience.

    What an amazing experience with My Splash! Instructors / guides are all friendly and patient. This is our first time snorkeling and they gave us individualized attention depending on each person’s skill and comfort level. Me and my youngest generally are nervous in the ocean but the guides made us feel comfortable and safe that we all ended up snorkeling without a vest. We would love to go with them again on a different adventure when we return to Maui.
    Amazing Tour!

    My husband isn’t a swimmer. The tour guides were patient and conscientious to assist him until he was comfortable in the water and relaxed. He thoroughly enjoyed the experience because of the thoughtful instructors. We saw lots of beautiful fish and lovely coral! We highly recommend this tour!
    Loved Our First Snorkeling Experience

    Guides were excellent for our diverse family of swimmers. Equipment was top notch and safety was paramount. We all enjoyed the experience. Swimming with sea turtles, beautiful fish, coral, and sea urchins was magical. Thank you!
    Life changing

    The best experience ever! I have never swam at all not even in a pool. Allie not only got me out in the water in my life jacket but even out of it!!! We saw turtles and tons of fish. It was a life changing experience for sure.

    My Splash was fantastic. Our first true snorkeling experience and it was absolutely amazing. The staff were professional, enthusiastic, with great energy overall. I would recommend this experience to anyone. There were non-swimmers in our class and by the end they were snorkeling with out a life vest on. The reef at Wailea Beach is great. Lots of fish and even a sea turtle or two. We also optioned for the personal video, it came out great. Professional Quailty. Aain, extremely happy with our experience, highlty recommend Edward & Anette
    Best experience ever!

    This was our first time in Hawaii and our first time snorkeling. My family and i had a great time and had an amazing experience with Ali and Triston. They are super friendly very knowledgeable. I really like to thank Ali for the quality one on one time with me due to my fear of being in the ocean because i don’t know how to swim. But at the end i was able to swim, in the ocean…with no life jacket! She was very patience with me and her singing makes you feel so calm and relax such a beautiful voice. Thank you to everyone for making this the best family vacation ever! We will definitely be back!
    The hosts were very kind...

    The hosts were very kind with working through any fears in the water and also pointed out and brought up cool sea creatures. Would highly recommend to anyone who is new to snorkeling and is looking to start in a guided manner.
    Best experience ever!!!
    Cindy_T, Feb 2023
    This is the best experience for non-swimmers like me. I thought I won't have much fun coming to Maui not knowing how to swim but the team makes sure my friends and I feel as comfortable as possible. We even saw some turtle. Do yourself a favor and book this experience.
    Absolutely wonderful, best guides, great equipment
    Janel_T, Jan 2023
    Absolutely incredible experience. While my kids can swim pretty well, my youngest has a fear of swimming in the ocean. The instructors were patient and kind and helped both of my kids get comfortable in the ocean. We saw so much sea life and swam with 3 sea turtles! Everyone was so nice. Highly recommend, especially got kids who need a little extra patience! :)
    Highly recommend, the staff was amazing

    Tristan was a great event host, high energy and very positive. Our instructor Ben was amazing, he worked with our family including my son and daughter making them feel comfortable. This was our first time snorkeling and it was the best experience to learn and gain confidence.

    Great coaching for first time. Felt comfortable. Ben was a great teacher (who actually is a teacher)
    Very safe and comfortable for a non-swimmer
    Sonali_S, Dec 2022
    We did the non-swimmers snorkeling trip. It was just great! Being a non-swimmer I’ve always missed the opportunity to snorkel at world famous Hawaiian islands. But thanks to our super skilled instructor Triston who made me feel safe and comfortable. He gave a tutorial at first and gave me time to learn some basic techniques. Then he guided us to the reefs where we saw beautiful reef and fishes. He was always besides us. I couldn’t believe myself that I did it!! I’d highly recommend this activity. If you’re a first time snorkelers, you can trust them totally with your intro session.
    We had a wonderful...

    We had a wonderful experience as a Non swimmers. Georgia, Dave and entire team take care of us. We also ordered for snorkeling video of ours. It’s worth getting a video and also we saw different species of fish, reef and a turtle.
    Highly recommend!

    It was an amazing experience. Instructors Allye and Tristan were excellent. It was my first time snorkeling but I felt very safe with them . Non swimmers can definitely try snorkeling with this team . Juliano s video of us snorkeling was great !
    A wonderful experience!

    I do not swim and this was only the second time I have been in water and not touch be able to touch the bottom. I have always missed out on snorkeling because I couldn’t swim. However, this experience makes getting in the water and getting to snorkel very comfortable and safe. The instructor is extremely patient and makes sure that you have a safe and comfortable experience. I highly recommend this experience for anyone who wants to get in the water but may be anxious or have some fear of the water. Finally, you do not have to miss out on getting in the water!
    Wonderful Experience

    It was an absolutely fantastic experience! My husband and I loved our guide, Allie - she was so fun and bubbly! She is very knowledgeable and sings while she works. Which puts you at ease in the water! I’ll never forget swimming with a sea turtle and seeing the coral reef and it’s fish. Thank you!!
    I absolutely loved this...

    Highly Recommend
    Brenda_J, Oct 2022
    Excellent instructors who put all of us at ease and somehow managed to give us all individualized attention. Owner, Tristen, paddled the raft and offered encouragement and information throughout the tour. Highly recommend this course. Well worth the money, and made me feel much more confident!
    Perfect for first time snorkeling
    Rose_E, Oct 2022
    This was a great experience. I’m 70 and not a good swimmer, never snorkeled before. In no time I was swimming with turtles! The staff was fun and upbeat. They were very attentive, competent and professional. Highly recommend!!!
