Our snorkel trip with Sail Maui on Paragon was phenomenal!!! It was a last minute decision and we’re so glad we were able to book with them. The location was perfect for us because we could walk from our hotel in Lahaina. The weather turned out perfect for the day. The crew: Justin, Cass, and newcomer Tennasyn were fantastic. Justin was knowledgeable and skilled as the capt and his passion for sailing was great to see and experience. Cass and Tennasyn were attentive, so friendly and outgoing, and made sure everything we needed was taken care of. All three of them made the experience so relaxed and laid back there was no way you could not enjoy it. We were lucky enough to go out to Lana’i thanks to the conditions being perfect. The water was clear and calm, and the whale watching was an added bonus. Food, drinks, and music were perfect for the vibe. We had a blast and would definitely sail again with Sail Maui when we return to Maui!!!

Had such a blast venturing out with this crew! Their knowledge and passion for marine life were surpassed only by their hospitality and general good vibes. Excellent snorkel spots - good for all levels. Can't wait to come back already!

Awesome experience! The crew was top notch. Would recommend this to anyone looking to snorkel, whale watch or just like being on the water.

Staff were fantastic - very helpful and trying to make it a great experience for all of us

Amazing time, worth it !!! Great staff and an unforgettable time!!
