We did not know what to expect but we own boats and are boaters so our expectations were pretty high. We arrived on time to find the crew and Captain to be extremely friendly and properly getting things stowed and ready for the trip. The...More

We arrived at the pier early and waited till the captain let us all board. It wasn't overly crowded which was nice and the boat was a reasonable size. We had the safety talk and out we went. What we liked was that the captain...More

The boat wasn't crowded with people, which made the journey to the crater and turtle town more pleasant. We were only able to see one turtle but we saw lots of tropical fish. There was a variety of food for lunch and plenty of drinks.

GREAT snorkeling and whale watching trips. Snorkling out at Moliniki is incredible and if your lucky enough to have a whale come up to the boat...wow. Water, sunning, swimming and lunch. Nice day early morning departure.

We hired out this boat to spread our sister's ashes. Captain CJ and his crew were so accommodating. Although the sea was very choppy, he found a calm patch for us to proceed with our memorial. We saw whales and dolphins and watching the sunset...More

We went on this tour and spent 4.5 of the 6 hours driving around before we stopped to snorkel. We weren't able to go to turtle town because of the swell and visibility, which was a huge disappointment for me. I wanted to end my...More

My husband and I went on the Leilani yesterday (1/9/17) for some adventure! We had never been to Molokini before and as Maui locals, we figured it was about time. The crew (Captain CJ, Tanya, and Carlos) were the best! They were so witty and...More

The boats leave from Maalaea Harbor. We also had a rental car since our hotel did not provide transportation. Your hotel might be able to arrange transportation with a car service but I'm sure that would be an extra cost.
