Really great experience - loved every minute of it. I was particularly impressed by how hard the crew of all-female employees worked - these ladies KILLED it! They got us snorkel gear, wet suits, served us breakfast, were our lifeguards while snorkeling, whale spotters, marine biologists, they anchored the boat by free-diving, they grilled our lunch, served our cocktails - and kept us socially distant!!! What an AMAZING crew of kind, friendly, knowledgeable, hard-working, strong, and capable young women.

The snorkeling at Molokini was the most beautiful I've ever seen - we also saw many whales breaching on our way over which was a huge added benefit. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Maui. What a special island!

Captain Vaun gets a gold star for his wonderful demeanor and attentiveness while boarding and throughout the journey. We happened to be there during whale season and saw many whale tails while approaching molokini crater, where the snorkeling was off the hook! Then we went to Wailea for a 2nd snorkel spot and I was able to witness and swim behind a juvenile sea turtle! It was magical. The veggie burger and Maui lager accompanied w sides were a great lunch after snorkeling [breakfast of bannana bread and fruit was good too]. Thanks so much for a beautiful day! SO worth the ticket price to be out on the boat for five hours. Plus giving back 80% of the sale to the whale foundation just feels good.
