This is one of the best snorkel tours I've taken in Maui. Lanai reefs are great and we saw more fish and marine life on this tour than on other tours I've been on. Loved that we stopped on the way to Lanai when we encountered a pod of bottlenose dolphins. We also saw spinner dolphins on the way back in when we were almost to the harbor. Very informational, food and drinks were good too.

Best Snorkeling tour!

We went on Memorial Day and had the best experience ever! We literally had the lanai to ourselves as we snorkeled and saw beautiful fish and coral! The food options were abundant and very reasonable priced! The staff and captain of this boat trip were primarily women and a couple guys (even the captain) was a woman she was phenomenal!) and kept our attention and interest the whole boat ride! Very funny - upbeat. These marine biologists have there masters + and all very educated.

Definitely do this tour over other competitive snorkeling boats PLUS almost all of the other proceeds go back into the marine life and research for dolphins and whales !!
