I don't know if Woody was having a bad day, but he just wasn't that informative/talkative.... To the point where when some of us were snorkeling and some stayed on the boat he was lying down inside his cabin on his cell phone the whole time!? The snorkeling spots were just okay, and the only reason we did see a... More

In an area and era in which large companies are increasingly pushing small businesses to the side, Captain Woody stands out as a charter that excels by focusing on providing exceptional experiences. Life events and procrastination left us looking to book a trip for our three children AFTER we had arrived in Maui. On a family referral, we called Captain... More

Spending the day with Woody and "Easy" was time and money well spent. The day was perfect. Snorkeled and saw turtles at the "car wash" and even a reef shark at the last snorkel site. The whale show was spectacular. Woody got us up close and personal, all within regulation, and they were amazing to watch. It was the best.... More

Five starfish rating! Woody and Eric were fantastic. Local knowledge, ability to articulate through experiences, understanding of Hawaiian culture, you name it. Safety first. Great gear. Great food. Great boat. Really awesome day! Whale watching, snorkeling, fishing, cruising, enjoying the sunny day! Captain Woody has a laid back approach, but all the while paying very close attention to all the... More

Captain Woody and crew creates an incredible experience every single time I have gone out with them. His attention to detail while creating a laid back environment definitely makes for a killer time...every time. If you are visiting Maui, this is a must-do experience!

Spent the whole day on Captain Woody's boat and it was a great experience. Our trip was in early November, But Captain Woody both managed to locate whales and took us on wonderful snorkeling adventures. He is knowledgeable and fun. I have been coming to the islands for over 40 years, this was the best time I have had on... More

My wife and I spent one day of our honeymoon doing a 3 hour charter with Captain Woody on the advice of a family friend. We called him the day before we wanted to go, and he happened to have that day available. We debated whether we wanted to spend as much money as we did (roughly $800 for a... More
