We had a great time on our dinner cruise off the shore of Lahaina, Maui. We stayed in Kaanipali, so it was just a short walk to the boat. The captain and crew were very nice, upbeat and eager to please. The boat was very comfortable and clean. I can't say enough good about the food, it was delicious, especially the fish. My daughter's hat flew off into the water and one of the crew dived in the ocean to retrieve it! Talk about above and beyond! We saw a beautiful sunset and some whales breached so near the boat, I didn't even need my binoculars. The only somewhat negative thing was that the crew member who gave a talk about the whales did not seem very knowledgeable, but we didn't sign up for a whale history or biology cruise, so that was fine with us.

Had a great snorkeling trip with Teralani. We saw whales and dolphins as we traveled to the snorkeling spot. Crew was friendly and tried to make everyone feel comfortable, particularly the kids. The hot lunch was much appreciated after snorkeling for an hour - nothing gourmet, but it really tasted good! We would certainly recommend them for a day trip.

We took the whale cruise one afternoon and had a fun experience seeing scores of whales. The crew was helpful and fun. This was one of the best parts of our vacation. Well worth the cost.

My cousins, mom, sister, and I booked the Premier Snorkel and BBQ trip and thoroughly enjoyed the adventure. Loading right from the beach was great. Be warned, your shoes (water shoes, boat shoes, sandals) come off and are loaded into buckets until you are back on shore. This freaked my sister out a bit, but she survived. My sister had never snorkeled but the crew was very helpful in assisting her with her equipment and getting her into the water. We saw loads of fish and several turtles - the one guy in the water (who no doubt was looking out for our safety) even called us over when he spotted them. He took our picture in the water for us too! We took another reviewer's advice and ate a hearty breakfast about 2 hours before sailing out. The continental breakfast is a perfect light snack before going into the water, but not really enough to provide you with the the energy you'll need once you are actually snorkeling. You'll want to snorkel as much as possible before getting back on the boat because once you're out of the water it's hard to get back in - mostly cause you are tired. BBQ lunch was good and there was plenty. We saw whales on our way back to the beach and ate cookies while the crew explained whale behavior. It was a gorgeous, gorgeous day and only 26 people on board. The cousins did the optional snuba and really had a good time. It is an added expense (about $70 I think) and lasts about 20 - 30 minutes. Overall a beautiful day, an experienced, patient and helpful crew, and a wonderful memory from Maui!

The choices available in Maui for snorkeling and whale watching are immense if not overwhelming. Teralani was recommended to us for its service and being close to where we were staying, a beach pickup at Whalers Village. Service was incredible!!!Captain Pam and her crew of 4 provided snorkeling lessons and in-water support. Lunch included an assortment of beverages and fantastic food. On our trip to Kapalua Bay we were accompanied by porpoises, whales and informative narratives of ocean life. Thank you Pam for your passion, love of people and ocean life, and your choice of music. We can't wait to return and plan another trip on Teralani.
