Amazing adventure
Heather_S, Jun 2022
The Captain and the team are absolutely amazing we had an amazing time and would recommend to anybody. Also don't recommend if you get any sort of motion sickness you are sure to be sick.
Excellent tour
Karen_S, Jun 2022
This was the best snorkeling tour I have taken to date. Lcation was amazing. We saw fish, and four sea turtles. In addition, we were able to Dolphin watch on the way to the snorkeling site. Captain Chris and his cruise took their time to teach new snorkelers how to use the snorkeling gear and how to snorkel. Lastly crew members were in the water monitoring and assisting us. Great trip felt safe and yummy lunch was provided.
Ecotourism at its best
Donna_V, May 2022
Fabulous opportunity to see and learn about parrotfish, triggerfish and spinner dolphins in the wild. Also got to watch the crew scoop up some ocean trash. Grateful to support an organization that cares about protecting marine life.

A tour highly recommended
daypresa, Oct 2021
I highly recommend this specific tour. It provided an educational background of the fish we might encounter when snorkeling, dolphins, and the Hawaiian islands. Breakfast, lunch and drinks were offered. Staff was courteous, helpful and in high spirits. When my husband was having some problems snorkeling, a staff was very patient and did not leave us. He made sure we’re okay. There were also lifeguards overlooking everyone snorkeling.
Fun day snorkeling in Lanai.
Ken_R, Oct 2021
Our entire family had a blast on this trip. The staff on board were friendly and helpful. The snorkeling was fun - we caught a great day with great water visibility. Saw flying fish on our way back. We would recommend this trip to others.
Great Snorkel Trip
Faith_B, Oct 2021
Seeing the spinner dolphins on the way back to Lahaina. The snorkeling was good and the staff was very polite. They had life guards out in the water with you which made me feel safe especially with kids.

Boat trip results in costly Parking
Clarence_C, Apr 2021
No information was provided on parking, Most parking spaces around the Harbor have a 3 hr limit, but the trip is 5 hrs plus 45 check intime. It is suggested that information on parking be provided to avoid the $80 parking ticket. Also the crew did not enforce the covid rules of wearing face masks or covering nose & mouth when not eating or drinking onboard.
Response from Host, Apr 2021
Thank you so much for coming out with us on our Lanai Snorkel & Dolphin Watch program. Thank you for providing your feedback and letting us know about the lack of mask enforcement on the vessel so that our Operations Director can correct such action. We have very strict policies on Covid health and safety procedures, so we appreciate you letting us know about your specific experience. I am sorry to hear of your parking ticket. All of our confirmations contain check-in time and location, Google map directions and parking suggestions, so I have to assume that you booked through an outside agency. While we hate to see any customers have any such issues, sometimes it's hard to control the flow of available important information to guests booked by other companies.
Wonderful snorkeling trip to Lanai
Catalina_M, Apr 2021
We enjoyed our boat trip to Lanai from Lahaina. Staff was great and kept up with the Covid safety precautions. Snorkeling was great, lots of beautiful sea life to see!
Response from Host, Apr 2021
Thank you so much for choosing to come out with us on our Lanai Snorkel experience. We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed the experience with lots of sea life. We truly appreciate your support and will hope to have you out with us again on your next visit to Maui.
Spinner dolphin paradise
Alison_A, Nov 2020
Great excursion to Lanai Hawaii. Met near the shore by dozens of curious spinner dolphins. They also showed up again after an amazing snorkel. The staff on board from the Pacific Whale foundation were informative and extremely committed to the cause of preserving marine life. The day was fun and exciting!

Kathryn E, Oct 2017
After several attempts, this was first time I actually was able to snorkel successfully. The boat captain gave me several tips that really helped. Having the life preservers around the waist and holding the noodles out in front really helped. Enjoyed the reef and all its sights. Food was great. Disappointed to not see dolphins but only saw two the whole week in Lahaina.

Long ride to snorkel site as they had issues with their mooring in the first 2 places. Spent less time in the water.
