The Molokini Sail and Snorkel excursion was absolutely outstanding!! My wife and I stayed in Lahaina, so the short drive to the harbor dock for the early morning Catamaran departure was easy. The sailboat was luxurious, comfortable, and not overbooked with guests. The Captain and Crew were friendly, VERY service oriented, and took great pains to create a memorable, beautiful experience. An awesome surprise that both breakfast and lunch grilled chicken on boat! plus beer / drinks all included on the boat!
And Oh, the breathtaking beauty of the sailing and aquatic life at Molokini! The most exhilarating part of our trip to Maui! Put this trip on your Maui Musts list!
We weren't able to go out to the crater due to high winds so the captain took us to a discrete location to snorkel and it was beautiful. The entire crew was amazing and so kind. We'll definitely do this again!
We had a great morning with these guys. Everyone was really helpful and the snorkelling was good we often visit the Great Barrier Reef so our standards for coral and fish viewing are pretty high!.
They serve breakfast when you get on the boat which is good as it's an early start. They also serve lunch - good food and plenty of it - but lunch is served at about 10am during the trip timings.
I'd recommend these guys Four Winds to others.
Very fun day on the water. Everyone on the boat was very friendly, helpful and interested in making our day happy and memorable. The food was great! Best grilled chicken I've ever had. Several of us even went for seconds. The water was very choppie because the wind was so powerful. The Captain knew how to work with the wind and took us a different direction that was just spectacular. Go Go Go on this trip, well worth the
Geat tour. Unfortunately windy and Captain Dan made the call I think we all agreed with, which was to not actually go to molokini crater and go to a nice calm spot called coral gardens. Though the air was still moving quick the water was soft and we saw some turtles there too, which the crew said we wouldn't likely have seen at the crater. Food was great, crew excellent and a wonderfull bonus to start. While cruising to get final word on determining how rough the water was at the crater we had a humpack whale swim right near us and then proceeded to tailslap the surface while we were floating near by and then her baby began to copy. Quite the fortunate display but I imagine whale sightings are a fairly common added bonus going this time of year!
Great trip. Water/wind was still so they never hoisted the sails which disappointed me, but otherwise it was a great time. They even provided me with a mini boat on which I could float on and it had a 14 window to look through. I tend to fight the snorkel, so this was a great option for me. Great and thoughtful crew. Good trip.
We had a fantastic sailing adventure to Molokini Crater. The highlight was the whale watching - so many around! The crew were very attentive, provided tips on snorkelling to the beginners and kept a close eye on us in the water. The breakfast on arrival and BBQ lunch was delicious, high recommend the marinated chicken, with a nice cold beer to the top deck with magnificent views.
absolutely fantastic trip!! The crew was awesome, informative, and funny. Great for all ages!! There were babies, young kids, all the way to grandparents on our trip!! Even if you have someone who is handicapped! they have flotation devices that a person can lay on and look through a viewing window at the fish below. As far as the food went, they even had a vegetarian option!! I would recommend this trip to everyone.
Excellent value and a lot of fun. The captain and crew were unfailingly humorous and helpful and went out of their way to make sure everyone had a good time. Lots of detours to have close encounters with whales.
The captain's commentary enhanced our experience. The boat was comfortable. The snorkeling spectacular.
Absolutely Fabulous! Great fun! Very family friendly. Crew was so kind and helpful. Food was terrific!
Highly recommend this tour for young and old alike!
Captain and crew were very entertaining. We were able to do snuba, a combination of snorkeling and scuba diving. No certification needed and that made the trip better. Weren't able to go to Molikini as the wi do were too strong. The alternative coral reef provided lots of variety in fish to view. I rented an underwater camera, which I was glad I could do. The meal was delicious and I would definitely do this again.
Awesome experience. The tour is really well organized. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
An excellent morning trip out on the ocean. The crew were really professional, fun and welcoming. The food and drink was all of a high standard and the equipment they had for us to use was really good quality. All round an excellent morning spent sailing and snorkeling around maui.
The crew made this trip! Everyone was friendly and helpful. This was not snorkeling the Caribbean, but it was fun because of the crew!
Awesome boat and crew. Wonderful breakfast and barbecue lunch. The crew took amazing care of us. We had a great time snorkeling. The water is cold and a little rough but that doesn't inhibit a great experience!
This was so much fun! We arrived at the dock about 20 minutes early where we checked in, and then got on board the Catamaran. They served a nice breakfast of bagels and fresh fruit. It was a short distance to travel out to Molokini, but the views of Maui are fantastic from out there. Once we arrived, we split into groups, as they offer snuba on board. Because the water was so clear, we opted to do the snuba, which is a cross between snorkeling a scuba diving. It allowed us to about 12 feet under the surface to get a better view of the marine life and coral. The snuba instructor was super friendly and got us all set for the dive. They offer wet suits on board for a small rental charge, which is perfect for anyone who does the snuba option. As soon as we hit the water we were surrounded by tropical fish. There were large schools of black fish that stayed closer to the surface, and lots of multi-colored fish that stayed closer to the bottom. As we were exploring, the staff photographer found an eel, which he coaxed out so we could see it. The water was so clear that we could see pretty far into the distance, and the snorkelers were able to see to the bottom with no problems. After spending a while in the water, we got back on board the catamaran for a great Hawaiian barbeque lunch. They had pulled pork and hot dogs (and veggie burgers for the vegetarians). They also had an open bar with beer, wine and soda. After eating, we still had a little time left so we put the snorkel gear on and jumped back into the ocean for some more exploring. The underwater sea life is absolutely beautiful in the crater.
we were very impressed with your experience. The ship was well equipped with staff and equipment. The food was good and the Captain fun and very experienced. Would recommend highly!
Had a great time with the family. My 7 year old loved snorkeling and they had boards with a clear viewing area that my 4 year old rode on. Snorkel equipment was really great... did not have leak once and never had to adjust. Food was great and loved that there was a professional photographer that took great underwater pics and video.
