The crew was nice. The trip over was not relaxing because the boat was moving quickly and hitting the waves to get to our destination. Trying to get meals and even just moving around the boat was a difficult balancing act. We didn't see any dolphins. We did see some colorful fish and a sea turtle at the first snorkel stop in Lanai. The water was cold and murky at the second stop in Lahaina so I didn't stay in long enough to explore. Many others also cut their snorkeling short at the second stop.One beer was offered after snorkeling. Lunch was hot dogs, hamburgers and a potato/macaroni salad mix and the crew came around offering cookies later. Breakfast was muffins, fresh fruit granola bars, coffee and juice. There was plenty of food, sodas and water. The price was right.
Fabulous experience with breathtaking views of island coast. Sunset that evening was somewhat disappointing due to clouds, but we saw double rainbows over the island which made up for the sunset! Good food, drinks, and a friendly helpful crew made this a highly recommended experience for us.

We totally loved the Snorkeling experience. It was our first time and we had the best crew to help us non swimmers experience snorkeling without any hiccups. We called them a day prior to check for a good parking spot nearby and Blossom was very helpful in letting us know about a parking lot nearby where we could get full day parking at a reasonable cost. The captain was a very nice lady, she gave non swimmers a special lesson and tips on how to snorkel. Sorry can't recollect her name. Since my husband was buddying my son and I was too afraid to go all by myself another crew member who was from Alaska and it was his first day volunteered to help me and asked me to hold on to the boogie board so I cud experience snorkeling. Had it not been for him I wud have never got a chance to experience the beautiful marine life below.We gotta see almost a dozen Dolphins swim past out boat and a bunch of Turtles too. It was truly a breathtaking experience.Not to forget the warm suit they let us rent for 10 as well as the warm BBQ burgers we relished post snorkeling. We were so glad to have choosen Viator for this once in a lifetime experience. Highly recommend this cruise.
Awesome day!! Super relaxing. The captain and crew were excellent. The snorkeling was amazing. Our 9 and 10 year old absolutely loved snorkeling and then jumping off the dock and sliding off the slide. Great way to explore Hawaii and get a little exercise to boot!! One tip: feel free to bring clothing to change into. We went on board with as little as possible including towels, and there was totally enough space to stash things change clothes.
Crew did a great job. They kept the ride out interesting with stories of the islands. They kept us hydrated and safe throughout the trip. Good snacks and bbq. We saw a whole pod of dolphins and sea turtles! Only reason for 4 star was merky water conditions at one of the stops. Highly recommended!
The staff and the food were great, but we didn't realize it was going to be an almost 2-hour boat trip each way, which didn't allow for a lot of snorkel/ in the water time. Not to mention the water was very choppy due to the wind( nobody's fault) so people were getting seasick left and right on boat
Doing what: Lanai Snorkel and Dolphin Watch
Inexperienced captain that makes us swim 600 yds away from the boat on a rocking ocean. People were in need to grab the surf of the tour guides to get back to the boat. Captain showed lack of judgement endangering the safety of his pass. Snorkel in Kapalua bay from the shore its free, safe and better
Unfortunately the trip was very windy and rough and many guests ended up sick. The crew did their best to accommodate everyone. We did stop in a protected cove that was much calmer to do our snorkeling. I wouldn't say the sights were anything remarkable -- an average time and average sights.
Lunch on the return trip was good. Our only comment is that for the price of the excursion it might have been nice to get a few complimentary drinks on the return trip. We've been on dozens of similar trips in the Caribbean for much less money and enjoyed open bar on the return. On this one it was simply a cash bar and the prices were someone captive.
A nice boat and crew but pretty much average otherwise.
Doing what: Lanai Snorkel and Dolphin Watch
Snorkelling was fun and we got to see whales and dolphins along the way. The crew was top knotch and efficient. Tons of food that was delicious, more than we anticipated. There are a lot of people on the boat so it isn and #39;t intimate, but the 2 snorkel sites and the beauty surrounding made a great day.
The captain of the boat was awesome with explanations and all, the sailors were very great with the instructions for those of us who hadn't snokeled before or in a long while. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous! Awesome tine.
This trip was awesome! The crew were young and enthusiastic, and seemed determined to find the perfect spots for us to snorkel! We were taken out to Lanai for a great hour near the cliffs, and then back to a ruined pier outside of Lahaina for some more snorkeling. On our trip out to Lanai were were surrounded by a pod of dolphins, which was a truly magical experience. In the water, we saw many sea turtles and innumerable fish. I saw one crewmember helping two ladies who were having a really hard time with seasickness but were determined to get in the water. He allowed them to hang on to his surfboard and 'snorkel' while hanging on. Really kind and considerate staff, who obviously love their jobs in this beautiful place. The boat was a real workhorse, so don't expect any glamour on this trip! If you want to see some real beauty - even if you have never snorkeled before in your life!
What a great experience this was , I was so lucky that on my tour I got to see dolphins. The team were great always making sure everyone was always safe and happy. The hospitality was fantastic they always made sure everyone had food or drink. Would highly recommend this tour , great value for money
