INCREDIBLE experience!!First and foremost, even before the stunning ocean views/air, I have to give a shout out to the wonderful captain, crew, and divers. Professional, friendly, and there to make sure you're safe, comfortable, and having the time of your life. Seriously could not have been nicer!!Food and drinks were ample and everything was delicious.The boat was comfortable and oh so luxurious. It definitely set the bar as this was my first excursion experience.Super kid-friendly. Captain Jamey let both of my kids (5&6) steer the boat. They're still talking about it!Would 100% recommend. My husband and I took dramamin even though we've never experienced motion sickness, but I was glad we did, as there were others who got a bit uncomfortable when waters got choppier.

While on our honeymoon in Maui, my wife and I attended the snorkeling excursion AND the sunset cruise on the Alii Nui. We had an AMAZING time on both excursions, and cannot recommend them highly enough. The boat was beautiful and well maintained. The staff were all so helpful, friendly, and went over the top to ensure that each and every person had an amazing experience. The food and beverage service was top notch. We did the snorkeling along with huka diving, which was one of coolest things we have ever done. It was a unique combination of snorkeling and scuba diving. We highly recommend doing it! Overall, we had a very special and memorable experience on both excursions and highly recommend the Alii Nui!

A must-do for the sunset dinner cruise! The captain and crew were first class and made our experience wonderful! We set out from the harbor at 515 after boarding the large Alii Nui catamaran and were catered to for appetizers and drinks before the crew raised the sails and cut off the engine. It was a wonderful sail out into the ocean toward the crater. Around 6pm we were served a delicious dinner with more food than you imagine and it was all delicious. The fact it feels half-booked made it even better but they do this on purpose for the comfort of the guests. Can’t say enough about the crew as they were extremely attentive to anything we wanted. We sailed back around 7 and enjoyed a cloud-hidden but still beautiful sunset before getting back to the harbor. This is a must do!

Excellent experience with sunset cruise! The service was very good! They had quality food & drinks.

The sunset was beautiful as well. Highly recommend!!

Had a GREAT Sunset Cruise! Dinner was top notch. Prime Rib, BBQ Ribs, Crab Cakes, Chicken and lots of other items. We saw many whales and enjoyed just sailing around. The Captain even got the sonar out and let us listen to the whales singing. They even picked us up at our resort and returned us afterwards so that open bar was safe too! We enjoyed this tremendously and highly recommend the Alii Nui for cruises or whale watching or snorkeling trips. Beautiful ship.

EPIC Whale Watching Trip! We recently did a whale watching trip and it was truly and amazing day out on the water. Upon arrival everyone got checked in quickly and they had an awesome lunch spread available in the cabin to enjoy before departing including ribs, cheese platter, light pasta dish, and refreshments - totally worth spending a little more for the better quality, less packed, less hassle trip!. The crew was always available during the trip to assist with taking any drink orders, answering questions about the whales, and made sure everyone was comfortable. Prior to departing the captain noted that he will always do his best to position the boat for good lighting while still remaining a respectful distance away from the whales. We took some amazing photos thanks to the captain... It was an exception day out on the water and one of the best action packed days I have seen all season and was so thankful for that! Mahalo nui Alii Nui for having us out and we can not wait until the next trip out with you guys!

Absolutely amazing! We went on the Molokini and Turtle Town Snorkel Tour Feb 15th. It was a little challenging to figure out how to find the slip mainly because our travel agent booked it for us and we didn’t realize they are many tour companies at the harbor. Give yourself extra time to find parking and to locate the slip. On board every single crew member was focused on making our experience the best possible. There was breakfast already out when you get on board, snacks throughout the day and lunch. The bar is always open and someone is always offering you a drink. They have towels to your hearts content. Want a new, dry towel? Already taken two, no worries there are plenty more. They have a lovely warm sprayer on deck to rinse off, rash guards in every size, noodles, everything. I forgot to tie my hair back, they had a hair tie for me. They had sun block, lotion, leave in conditioner, they think of everything. Meals are served on real plates and there is a yummy variety of fresh foods. They want you to have a great time. The snorkeling was beautiful. They have lifeguards out on the water and a photographer in scuba gear to take your photo. They include many fine touches to really make you feel pampered. If you go in February you will get the added bonus of see many whales. We got beautiful pictures and videos of the whales. I can’t think of a finer experience or a time I have ever been more impressed with service. Bring cash for a tip, believe you will want to express your appreciation. We took our 7 year old and they had the size gear for him and took extra care to make sure he had a great first snorkeling experience. You won’t regret taking this trip, once in a lifetime!!

One of the best on the island! Whale watch excursions come in three varieties here: big educational boats, small speedy no-frills rafts, and high-frill catamarans. Alii Nui excels in that latter category, and is a top choice on the south side of the island. Come hungry! The food is delicious, there's all you can drink, the service is great, they even clean your dirty sunglasses for you! Those small touches make a huge difference. My one request - please add iced tea to your drink menu! If you're a photographer, note that you can't use a GoPro from this type of boat because the catamaran is too high up from the water (versus a raft), but you'll have great views to shoot DSLR and iPhone images from the top decks!

By far the very best.Our forth year in a row and counting. Great food and all you can drink and the best thing is that they pick you up and drop you off from wherever you're staying so you don't have to drink and drive. Just have fun and enjoy the most magnificent scenery and whales up close. That your only job.

Worth every penny. The staff is outstanding. Professional and friendly. They fed us the yummiest lunch and made me the best rum and coke I have ever had. The snorkeling spot they took us to was incredible. Sea turtles everywhere. I gotta give a special shout out to Pam. Such a sweetheart. The Aloha spirit just radiated off her. Mahalo for the best day of our vacation.
