Absolutely incredible! My friend and son (age 5) decided to try out snorkeling. Although my son was a little hesitant the crew made his trip. Ms. Ashley was amazing. Each crew member specializes with an ocean animal. They had so many facts they shared. We were lucky enough to spot some whales on the trip too! I couldn’t recommend this tour enough!!! Also I learned it was a non profit. So money spent goes towards research and keeping our oceans safe for the wildlife. It was absolutely incredible. Do yourself a favor and check it out while in Maui!!

Very nice for snorkeling. We were lucky as we managed to see a turtle and swim with it but there is no guarantee which is normal with wildlife. Otherwise we saw lots of fish and corals. It's a great activity to do to discover the Hawaiian seabed. The crew is very friendly and the food was good.

The water was a bit choppy on the morning of our tour, so if you get sea sick easily make sure to prepare for that. The crew was super helpful and knowledgeable. The lunch was pretty good and I was pleasantly surprised after reading the other reviews! If you’ve never been snorkeling before, I would recommend this trip
