I can't say enough great things about these guys! We took three separate excursions with them during our vacation in Maui. They went above and beyond. Due to an unknown side effect of a medication (totally OUR fault!), one of our party passed out during a 2 hour excursion. They

The crew was great and really fun! We saw three whales, a little reef shark, and many many sea turtles! Before boarding you are required to have your temperature taken. There is enough room on the ship that you feel pretty save covid-wise (however I will say that although the

Mahalo for the great review! We are always happy when the snorkel customers get to experience such diverse marine wildlife that Maui has to offer like you did on your trip! Glad to hear that the extra steps we have taken as a company to prevent the spread of COVID made you feel safe onboard! Also we wanted to make sure that you know if you ever book with us again in the future-there is a note to call with any food allergies or dietary restrictions 24 hours in advance if you read the confirmation email sent to you. If we have this heads up we will gladly be able to accommodate most restrictions! Next time just let us know before hand or while booking and we will definitely have a nice gluten free meal prepped for you!! Mahalo and Aloha
