Aloha Mike and thank you for bringing this to our attention since all cruises scheduled for Sunday were cancelled fairly early during the day on Saturday due to the dangerous forecasted ocean conditions. I don't know whether they didn't have correct contact information or not, but I offer my sincerest apologies and have forwarded your feedback to our Customer Care Manager for review with his staff. Mahalo for your time.
Honolua Snorkel trip

Captain Chris and the crew were awesome! The Captain and Desmond were particularly personable and knowledgeable about “all things Maui”. The food was delicious with plentiful portions. Enjoyed two great snorkel sites with a variety of beautiful fish and coral. My son wears glasses and they supplied a prescription mask for him. This made his trip so much more enjoyable. Overall the trip was even better than I had hoped. My family of seven all agreed on a 5 star review. I would definitely schedule again!!

What an amazing trip! The guides were very patient and super nice. They took us to amazing places while still managing to avoid the crowds. The gear they provided was in excellent condition. I saw tons of different fish, some eels, sea turtles, and even an octopus! On the way back to harbor they even located a pod of dolphins who swam with the boat and we got to lay on a mesh hammock in the front of the boat and watch them! I would highly recommend this trip!
