First of all let me start out to say the crew and Captain were all engaging ,knowledgeable and entertaining. Trip starts out heading north from Lahaina towards Honolua Bay ,the crew spotted a pod of spinner dolphins heading opposite way so the captain decided to spin the twin hull around and ride along side the pod for awhile ,you could almost touch them. On the way we were served a egg dish with juice and coffee After a while we spun back around and went to our first destination Honolua Bay which was a beautiful calm spot with plenty to see lots of fish coral and sea turtles. After that we headed to another location where again was amazing coral and various finishes I was able to spot a turtle there also. During this the captain fired the grill and started to cook the food a pulled pork type of dish was featured but if that was not your thing there was also hot.dogs , chicken and veggie burger. Wind was bowing so captain put up sail and turn down engines and we sailed back. I been to a Molokini trip years ago visiting Maui and this Honolua Bay trip was by far a better trip. If you only took one excursion for snorkeling I recommend this one.

The Honolua Bay Snorkel Tour and their staff were nothing but awesome. I went on the snorkel tour by myself and could not have had a better time. All staff are equally knowledgable, informative and humorous when relaying information to their guests. They knew how to get their important points and safety requirements across while also being light spirited. The Honolua Bay Snorkel Sail includes an educational piece that not all other companies offer which is fun for visitors of all ages. I also very much enjoyed that two different sites were visited as opposed to just one as it optimized both the snorkel and sail experience. Overall I would recommend this company to those interested in exploring the the island.

My 11 year old an I had a fabulous time on the snorkeling trip. The crew was professional yet laid back and provided lots of info about the creaturesa we got to see. A light breakfast and lunch were provided and were great. More importantly, the catamaran was at less then capacity so there was lots of comfortable places to enjoy the scenic ride to two snorkel spots. Honolua Bay was amazing and we saw a flounder, tons and tons of fish, a turtle and a white tip reel shark! When someone said “shark’ I felt the urge to sprint back to the boat but when my daughter started zooming towards it then figured I should follow along. It was super cool to see it lounging at the bottom of the ocean and I knew it was ver safe once I got over the initial worried reaction. Cliff Hoise had lots of fish and a turkey also but just wasn’t quite as clear but it was also a great place for people to relax and enjoy jumping off the boat and playing on the slide. Totally recommend this trip and taking the smaller of the two boats offered.
