Great trip with Pacific Whale Foundation this weekend, the outstanding part of this trip was the crew ! extremely attentive to the passengers safety. even though the conditions were less than ideal for snorkeling the crew did a fantastic job. I would strongly recomend this trip for families and people of all levels of skill in the water. we saw a pod of doplhin turtles and loads of exotic fish, and had a great lunch.

I booked this tour in mid-June 2015, and I travel on my own (F, 26 Yrs). It was amazing and I can only praise the staff. The boat was big, I made friends with some other turists visiting Maui. They explained how to snorkel without getting afraid, or swallowing water. The world underneath was FANTASTIC!!! Amazing reef, colorful fish, vegetation. It was exquisite. The staff was nearby IN THE WATER, helping people. I initially stayed by their floaters, and then I ventured on my own. They kept an eye on everybody and constantly asked if we were doing well. Definitely recommend this trip to Molokini.

We didn't receive a picture of our trip. It would have been nice to get a family picture.

We've done a total of three snorkeling tours with Pacific Whale Foundation and have had a great time on every tour. The prices are comparable to other budget-friendly snorkel tours and we love to support the organization. The crew does a great job making you feel welcome from check in to exiting the ship. Each time I've learned so much about Maui and the sea life that surrounds it. The Molokin trip is definitely a must do! We've been twice and really enjoyed it. The reef is still pretty much intact and attracts are diverse set of fish. The first time we even spotted an octopus!

Nice large boat had plenty of knowledgeable staff. Left fair close to on time, and the snorkeling was great. The keiki naturalist time was a nice addition on the return trip, and food was pretty good for boat food. We had 130 on the boat, but didn't feel too crowded. Would book again to help the PWF and their non profit conservation.

The people working for Pacific Whale Foundation are very pleasant and committed to the ocean. However the boat was overcrowded and the number of snorkelers at Molokini was insane.

The captain chose not to dive at Molokini due to choppy water. It was a disappointing day of diving but a very good call regarding the safety of the passengers.

This is my 3rd time snorkeling and by far the best. The staff was great! They had a quick lesson if you were a first time snorkeler or if you haven't done it in awhile. They had their crew on surf boards in the water with us to help if anyone had problems. We saw a couple of turtles and some beautiful fish! The staff is what made this excursion so good!!

DeeDee Gollin
Very, very nice trip. Staff were very helpful with all aspects of the trip. They did a great job educating us on various aspects of the ocean. Great lunch, very nice staff and fun trip!

We had the best time on this excursion. We highly recommend it. Tom's Barefoot Tours suggested it and we enjoyed the day immensely. The boat ride was beautiful and the crew took good care of its passengers with great food, drinks, and service. The snorkel location was ideal since the first stop was right at Molikini Island to see beautiful colorful fish and coral, and the next stop was around the island to see many large turtles. On the ride back to shore, we saw several dolphin swimming/jumping right next to the boat. This organization does great work and makes this trip informative and fun. Thank you!

This trip couldn't have been better. The staff were kind and very helpful. Molokini snorkeling trip was awesome. Got to see a lot of fish and turtles. I would recommend PWF to my friends and family.

We went on the Molokini and Turtle Arches tour last week and it was excellent! Pacific Whale Foundation and staff were great.  We took the 7AM tour and were the second boat at Molokini so we got to snorkel before it got crowded. The food on the boat was good and the staff took great care of everyone. My daughters loved the educational aspect from PWF and all the talk about marine life, oceans, and the environment.  We swam with 2 different turtles and Turtle Arches to highlight a great day on Maui!
