Awesome trip! Good snorkeling locations! We only went to the Crater due to winds, but still gave us the full two hours in the water. No need to bring any gear they provide everything you need and more. They serve breakfast, lunch and drinks. The crew is very friendly and helpful.

The crew made the experience very enjoyable. Very hospitable and attentive and informative. The vessel was nice and the kids had fun.

Mahalo for appreciating my team. They truly are the best of the best and the primary reason for our success of 40 years now. We especially love to introduce the keiki (children) to our amazing ocean and animals within. I am a little bias, but agree that Pride of Maui is the finest, and most comfortable and well-maintained vessel on Maui. By having the largest Maxi Power Catamaran, operating at just 60% of our Coast Guard capacity, guest have far more room for comfort, stability and space to move throughout her sprawling decks. This makes a big difference in your overall experience.

Thank You for celebrating your birthday aboard Pride of Maui. I am so proud of my Captains and crew, including the Wahines of course. We call it "GIRL POWER", when the schedule is such that Captain Jason winds up with our all-female crew. I know he loves it too, because they are all so committed to the guest experience, safety and operations on deck.

The Pride of Maui is an experience not to be missed. To go to a dormant volcano to snorkel with endangered turtles and the most beautiful assortment of fish and urchins was movie like. On and in the water, The Pride of Maui Molikini crater tour crew makes this experience safe and a Maui must, pure beauty and joy.

Amazing Time at the Molokini Crater and Turtle 🐢 Town

We all had so much fun. The crew are so wonderful and caring. Not to mention the yummy hot lunch we had. We saw lots of different kinds of fishes at the Molokini Crater swimming next to you. And we had fun at Turtle Town...saw some Turtles...it was amazing! I highly recommend Pride of Maui! Would love to do this tour again.

Thank you for sharing your amazing experience. My guys truly are wonderful and I’m so fortunate after 40 years, to have the very best team in the business. Our spacious and stable vessel booked to just 60% of our rated capacity, makes a huge difference, but it’s my team that really sets us apart.

We enjoyed our time!! A staff I think her name was( tataco ) I'm sorry if I spelled not correctly! She was so awesome!! Love her energy!! She helped us and made this adventure lots of fun!!! Thank you so much!! Sadly there was not much fish or turtles to see. Maybe it's not the right season. Other then that we loved it!!! Thank you!!!

Thank You for recognizing our team. Takako is our GM and for good reason. In the 40 years I’ve been in this business, I’ve never encountered anyone who comes close to the level of care she has for our guests. I could tell you story after story of the people whose lives she’s touched in the last 16 years she’s been with us. What’s more is that she has raised the bar for her team most who like herself have also been with us for many years. Goodwill and a good nature is at the heart of what we do and I’m blessed to have the very best team in the business, led by someone as special asTakako. She will be elated to read your review.

The staff was very good....
Dwaine_S

The staff was very good. We were well looked after. The Pride of Maui was clean. Food was good. Drinks were ok. Molokini Crater is over snorkelled……too many boats with snorkel tours. No Turtle Town. Water apparently too rough. Met some nice people on the boat. Was a pleasant experience.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Aloha and Mahalo for appreciating the care you received aboard Pride of Maui. My guys are unmatched in the level of service they provide to create memories not soon forgotten. There are the occasional days when the shoreline is unsafe for snorkeling due to high surf and surge, and Molokini as the only safe snorkeling option and more boats head offshore to the crater. Fortunately the State of Hawaii conducted extensive studies and does in fact regulate the number of boats that are permitted to visit the crater. We take it one step further by operating our vessels at 60% of our U.S. Coast Guard rated capacity. This operational philosophy puts less wear on our team and the environment, while allowing us to provide an unsurpassed level of personalized care to our guests, at a very relaxed pace. Less wear also contributes to why our boats are so well maintained and clean. Thank you again for joining us.

Underwhelmed
Tara_A
, Apr 2022
The tour does offer what it says it offers, but I left feeling it was overpriced. I brought my own snorkel gear, so I didn't need any of the gear they provided. I really just wanted a ride out to the Molokini crater. We didn't end up going to the crater because the waves were too rough. Which I know isn't anyone's fault, but it definitely wasn't worth a trip to the sub-par second choice :/ The food wasn't anything fancy either. I wish I would've booked with a cheaper company.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Aloha, It’s unfortunate that the weather prohibited us from making it out to Molokini Crater, though your safety is always our top priority. Thankfully the conditions cooperate 90% of the time and we do make it to the crater. Maui offers and we do visit other exceptional snorkeling locations which many of our guests love to experience. Coral Gardens and Turtle Town for example are both beautiful locations with a variety of colorful corals and marine animals. Molokini Crater is truly a very special place, with unparalleled underwater visibility, though the alternate snorkel sites are definitely not sub par. Fortunately the vast majority of our guests really enjoy our freshly prepared BBQ lunch cooked right onboard and served hot off the grill. Big juicy burgers, veggie burgers, plump hot dogs and marinated chicken, topped off with jumbo white chocolate Mac nut cookies baked fresh daily in our own commercial kitchen make for what so many others feel Is the perfect meal to enjoy on a snorkeling adventure. At the end of the day though, it’s our expert team who make the difference. My guys have decades of experience in our waters, with a deep understanding of our guests needs. We operate the largest Maxi Power Catamaran at about half our Coast Guard rated capacity, which provides much more space to freely move throughout her sprawling spaces, and allows our team to deliver an unmatched level of personalized service. Yes, there are little rubber boats, and other smaller vessels packed to their maximum capacity, where guests sit elbow to elbow, are served cold cuts for lunch which are less expensive, and it sounds like they might have been a better option for guests like yourself. Fortunately for us, the vast majority of our guests, many of whom are repeat customers who join us every year, understand and appreciate that the highest level of personalized service, expert staff, and Maxi Yacht operating at about half her capacity is what your paying the extra price for, and worth every penny.

The crew was phenomenal! It was windy so we didn’t go to the crater! They took us to a different location & the snorkeling was ok. The food and drinks were excellent.

Now I’m really happy! Two phenomenal reviews in a row, and different tours with different crew. Seriously, I do love to read the word phenomenal when guests like you describe the level of service we provide, because though as noted the food and drinks are excellent, though it is the unmatched level of service we provide that creates the unforgettable memories our guests cherish. Thank You for sharing your appreciation of our phenomenal service.
