No dolphins but still fun
, Mar 2020
Great snorkeling location near Lanae island. Not allowed to swim to shore to view shallow reefs due to safety reasons (need to be 100 yard from lifeguard/ boat. Signed up for this tour hoping to see dolphins but definitely did not see dolphins. There was a good amount of whales at this time (Mid- March) with some of them breeching. Swung by a turtle harbor as well. Crew was helpful - helped carry your breakfast/ lunch/ drinks upstairs to prevent spillage. FinS and snorkeling gear provided. Nothing fancy but food sustenance after swimming. Food provided. Parking rates vary by locations. Anywhere from $7 for whole day (near Kono BBQ) up to $36 so look around for cheaper spot if time permits.
A must do if visiting Maui

The tour was great. Crew was great and the food appropriate. Snorkeling was fantastic and swimming with sea turtles can’t be beat. Boat ride a little bumpy. Please take motion sickness precautions. You’ll enjoy the tour a lot more

It was wonderful. Snorkeling twice, one for a beautiful reef and the other with sea turtles. The staff was very nice, funny and professional.
A little improvement needed
, Jul 2019
Overall a good time but maybe a few improvements would get to a 5 star. Primarily the quality of food was not good but they did try hard. Call out to the captain - very pleasant. One of the staff was very annoying but overall they do a good job. Would recommend
Best experience!

This was an all-around first class tour. The staff, the food that was offered, the snorkeling equipment! It was all the best. I saw schools of fish swimming in beautiful Reefs! The best!
Great Fun Trip

The trip was all round excellent. Staff were knowledgeable, funny and helpful. Music and food were great, and snorkeling was amazing. We saw 2 species of dolphins in large pods
Great Day In The Channel
, Jun 2019
What a wonderful tour. We thought the food was great and exceptional service. Each Day on the ocean in Hawaii is different every day on the water, can be very rough but we had wonderful conditions. Saw 100+ dolphins. Great snorkeling with courteous lifeguards and staff. Captain was excellent and his mates were killer. Best Idea to check NOAA weather forecast and look for a day with winds below 15 knots. But today was forecast to be 28 and it was like 10 so a smooth, whitecap free day. Glad we decided to go anyways. Exceptional 5 hours on the QUICKSILVER. Less Bob Marley more Burning Spear for the tunes only thing I would change...pretty small. Great day!!

It was a beautiful day on the ocean. The scenery Snorkeling time was sufficient and the fish and coral was spectacular. The crew was very supportive and offered advice for a better outcome for those who were not familiar with snorkeling. It was a Dolphin Adventure as well, but no dolphins were spotted. That was a disappointment but was told sometimes they are there and sometimes they are not. If its seasonal that dolphins arrive to the cove, it should be advertised as such. Breakfast and lunch was okay. Will snorkel again.
Exceptional crew, fantastic meals...
