Awesome



Morgan Dosskey
Amazing! We saw 60-70 spinner Dolphins, including a newborn!



Christina Blobel
The Tour and Guides were great. We would do it again definitely as we could see lots of dolphins in Nature which was so exciting!



Konstantin Ryvkin
Great tour. Relaxing atmosphere, beautiful boat, friendly and informative crew.



Felieta Boaz
Great tour. We didn't think we were going to see Dolphins, but finally did on our way back. The staff was friendly and very accommodating.



Michelle H
The crew was great! They were all very informative about the right place to snorkel at Molokini and explained why we wouldn't go to Turtle Town in detail (Safety due to the water conditions) and I think all of us appreciated that! Everyone was very friendly and I don't remember the young woman's name who was on the surfboard checking to make sure everyone did not go into an area where there was a dangerous current but she was really helpful in keeping us all in place and showing us additional areas of interest.



Michelle H
I entered my last review which was actually for snorkeling Molokini! The dolphin watch eco tour was great! The crew knew a lot of information about the area and the types of dolphins that we were seeing. My daughter absolutely LOVED laying on her tummy at the front of the boat watching the dolphins swim around the boat!



Ken Blair
Lots of fun. We only saw 2 bottle nosed dolphins. We had hoped to see spinners, but we still had a blast. We had thought there would be more time sailing but most of the time we were going pretty fast with the engines on. Good crew and the boat wasn't too crowded.



Jeff Kerr
I would have given it 5 stars if we had seen some dolphins. We got skunked. But a very nice crew and a fun sail and we get to try it again for free next time we come to Maui. Mahalo



Anna Searle
It was everything we hoped for and more. The boat was really nice, awesome and welcoming crew. We saw dolphins within the first 40 minutes and enjoyed them for about an hour, then we sailed around. It was so beautiful and we will do it again on our next maui visit!



andrew gaetz
it was fun the captain and first mate hanna did decent job of leading the passngers

This tour was on a sailing catamaran and lasted close to 3 hours. Within a short time of leaving the Lahaina harbour, we encountered a large pod of dolphins. They were all around the boat, which allowed for plenty of photo's and videos. Crew were very knowledgeable and pleasant. Would highly recommend this tour.
