Just finished booking a dinner cruise with Sandra the concierge. She was amazing! Very helpful and will use her great customer service again!
Great trip, no wasting time in lunch and snacks, just hitting the water and enjoy sea life!
Great experience! Great value! Highly recommend.
Had a great time! Can't imagine anyone doing it better. With the fast boats we were out and snorkeling in no time. Plus we got back with plenty of time left to do other things. Well worth it!
What a great trip! I appreciated how quick the boat ride was there and back. We had enough time and good conditions to snorkel both sides of the crater. This trip is perfect if you want to sleep in a little and have time for other activities afterwards. Highly recommend!
What an amazing and wonderful experience snorkeling! Captain Curtis was great! Cannot recommend enough!
My wife, teen son and I had a great time! Perfect snorkeling and a fun, fast ride to and from Molokini and a nice smsll sized group. We would definitely do it again!
If you want to snorkel Molokini this is all you need. An hour or so there is all you need which is what this tour gives you.
The group was small so no long waits. The ride over and back was a gas especially going on the backside of the crater.
The time was great our 3nd year and Ted was the greatest and even remember this from last year which was remarkable will do it again next year when we're here same place same time same people.
Had an excellent time and felt comfortable and safe. Would recommend to anyone. This website was also extremely helpful and couldn't do enough to make sure everything went as planned.
Everything about the tour was to my groups satisfaction except the piloting and attitude of your "captain" Mr Shane. I'm a very experienced boat "captain" myself and have owned or been on boats most of my life. On the way to Molokini Shane had the throttle wide open which at first in the relatively calm waters was fine. But as we got out into the open waters near Molokini the swells were around 5 feet high. Instead appropriately negotiating the swells by reducing speed and approaching the swells in a perpendicular angle, Shane kept the throttle pinned wide open and ran parallel to the swells which caused multiple and repeated high impact crashes slamming the hull of the boat into the swells. I asked Shane to slow down and his response was "what for?". It's obvious to a seasoned "captain" the reason to slow the pace in high swells. Then on the return back the swells were even higher causing more hard crashes of the hull into the swells at a pace too high for the conditions. I asked Shane again to slow down and his response was "Zip it!". Today my and my wife's lower backs are very sore from the hard crashes of the hull into the swells. This is absolutely unacceptable and the ONLY reason no one else is complaining about this is because no one else on the boat has experience boating like I do knowing full well that for the size of the swells, his approach to them and his speed could have avoided most if not all of the hard crashes he did very little to avoid. And telling a seasoned boat operator and customer to "Zip it!" Is beyond unacceptable. I expect to hear what your company intends to do about this as I do NOT plan to limit my complaint to this email alone.
Amazing! Time was just enough and we had the entire crater to ourselves. Water
was a bit choppier than it would be in the AM but totally worth missing the
crowds for. Just take a Dramamine. We had a smaller group so our guides were
able to take us to three different spots. Water is clear and blue, a must see
for those who enjoy snorkeling!
