Incredible day snorkeling with these guys! Everything was perfect. We saw sea turtles, Humpback Whales, and lots of other stuff. The Whales were from the boat, but we were in the water with the turtles. The captain and crew were all very friendly and informative. Definitely recommend this boat.

We had a great time on the morning snorkel cruise to Molokini and turtle town. Great staff and with the smaller boat lots of personal attention. On the way back from the second snorkelling location the captain went slow and we were greeted with a lot of whale activity. I would recommend this company for your Maui adventure.

We went a few days and 5 stars is not enough. Just wanted to let you know it was PERFECT. Snorkeling- maybe a B. But that is simply nothing the captain can...

We had a fantastic trip with Maui Snorkeling. The snorkeling sites were beautiful and most people in our group were lucky enough to see turtles at Turtle Town. What really made it special however was the captain and his crew who were super friendly. We probably weren't the easiest guests as we brought our baby and toddler. This wouldn't be for everyone but we were pretty confident our kids would handle it well, we had our own infant and toddler life preserves, and we alternated turns snorkeling. The crew were really accommodating, and brought out a boogie board for our toddler. There was great info on the whales too.

Crew was extremely helpful to all. The Captain was very knowledgeable about the whales, turtles and fish. A fun, relaxing day on the water. Had a great time and would choose the Lani Kai again!

I'll be honest, at morning check in I thought I'd made a bad decision but I was definitely wrong, going with these guys was a great decision. Captain was great and the crew was awesome. We were one of the first boats to arrive at the crater after watching wales along the way there. VERY COOL! After the crater he took us to another spot and we were snorkeling with sea turtles. EVEN COOLER! I'd recommend them for sure. The other boat might look impressive but I think you'd get lost in the crowd. Oh yeah, have a few free mai tais after you're done snorkeling on the ride back.

We had an excellent day at the Molokini reef and "turtle town" on the Lani Kai. The captain and crew were great. Seeing the humpback whales breaching was the highlight of the 5-Hour tour. The captain knew where to find them and we stayed a hundred yards away as per the law. The deli lunch was good and we loved the open bar. I highly recommend this boat tour, although I imagine there are other good ones as well.
