Best tour on Maui. We LOVED everything. The snorkeling was amazing and we saw lots of turtles and fish. The whale watching was an unexpected plus. The best part of the experience was the service of the crew.

Have easily been on 60+ trips like this in all our visits here. Most of them are pretty good and seeing whales is always special. Yesterdays trip was exceptional in many ways. The boat is a modern, well equipped and well provisioned. Captain Linda is a true professional with

Aloha! We are still buzzing from Yesterday's Lanai alf Day snorkel adventure!! What an AMAZING experience for all those on board! Our photographer's footage is absolutely UNREAL from the day!! We can't believe how close and how long that curious whale was hanging out for! Absolutely incredible! It is not everyday we have encounters like these but when they happen boy do we feel lucky!! We are very blessed to have captain Linda in the Sea Maui Ohana as her years of experience as a captain in these specific West Maui and Lanai Waters have truly enabled her to know the best areas to go to for snorkeling and whale encounters etc. She truly is a "whale whisperer" and has quite the eye for spotting all sorts of marine wildlife during our trips!! Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your experience with Sea Maui, it truly means a lot to us that you had such an incredible time especially considering how many other trips like these you have taken in the past visits! We do hope we have the opportunity to host you guys again in the future! Mahalo and a Hui Hou!

We booked the catamaran with three other families and it was spectacular. The food and drink were good, the crew was great. What a wonderful time on a professionally run boat. We saw so many active whales and had an unbelievable snorkeling experience that include countless

Right on William!! WOW - It sounds like you guys got ALL the animals!! It is estimated that there are less that 1,100 Hawaiian monk seals left in the wild. So believe me when I say it is truly a blessing for you guys to have a visit from one of the most critically endangered species we have here in the Hawaiian Islands! Incredible! Thank you so much for taking the time to complement our professional crew and operations onboard and share your memorable experience through this review! We appreciate you! 🤙

We booked about 2 weeks out for the Friday before Thanksgiving week. The weather wasn't looking great - high winds and potentially rough seas - but we headed down to the beach to check in. Peter was funny and engaging during his safety speech. He gave everyone the option to

Thank you so much for this detailed review of our Lanai Half day Snorkel Adventure! It sounds like you guys had quite the adventurous day!! Glad you guys took advantage of the SNUBA upgrade and got the breathe underwater with the reef fish and Honu (Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle)! Those crossings back from Lanai can be a bit bouncy- but sounds like you and your daughter made the most of it and had some fun bouncing around on our net area! No better way to end an epic trip than a quick visit from our dolfriends!! Love those guys! Thank you for your helpful tips and kind review!!
