Kelly was an amazing guide! Very mindful of everyone’s snorkeling levels. Our mom was very nervous, but by the end Kelly made her feel safe and she was swimming out on her own. Everyone had the best time even without seeing any turtles. We all would recommend and go back again. It was nice being able to enjoy the reefs/fishes without having to worry about video and pictures. Kelly took care of it all so we have memories to look back on.

Fun. Safe. Amazing. Worth it!

Shelby was an excellent guide. She provided us with tons of photos and videos. You can tell you know she’s a pro with the amount of gear she has in her van. All snorkel gear was provided. I’d recommend bringing a towel and sunscreen. My wife and I felt safe the entire time we were in the water. All gear was provided. This snorkel trip is for everyone. We saw a lot of sea life - sea turtles, octopus, fish, and more. I would definitely recommend this trip for anyone who wants the full snorkel experience but doesn’t want to spend half the day out at sea looking at the same reef and fish over and over again. 2 hours was just the right amount of time.
Turtles galore & great guide

Was my first time snorkeling and our guide Robbie was absolutely wonderful. Made me feel super comfortable. He was very knowledgeable and took us to some great spots. We saw 3 sea turtles and got to see a sea snake and a white tip shark. It was just my husband, Robbie and I. Such a wonderful first snorkel experience. Highly recommend !!
Sea turtles!

This experience was amazing. Kelly was great. We had a mishap with the kids mask and the adjuster kept loosing when she would put her head under water. Thankfully we had snorkeling gear for her in are car because that was the only mask they had for the kids. I ended up missing the sea urchins because I had to swim back to the car to get her snorkeling gear. My recommendation would be to have more than one kids mask. It would have been upsetting if we didn’t have a set in the car. After we got our littlest one situated it went great.We saw a couple sea turtles and a starfish.
The best snorkeling experience

Joe is just the best despite me not knowing how to swim even he managed to take me snorkeling and I had a blast . Just the best experience
Local tour guide not huge boated group
Rachelle_P, Nov 2023
This is a local tour with local guide that is very knowledgeable, safe, and takes you directly to where turtles, sea urchins, star fish, and even an octopus! That’s why this tour is so much better than a big group tour. Joe was our guide he was great and would highly recommend for future, tour lasted about an hour in the water too which was nice because it’s very close to Wailea.
a blast!! would definitely do again!!
Neely_B, Nov 2023

Shelby was an incredible guide. She pointed out tons of other sea creatures and we were lucky enough to see turtles! She was super patient with everyone on tour. This was one of the best things we did in Maui! She was an excellent photographer and we got so many pictures! Would have paid double.
Joe was awesome! Engaging...
Ike_U, Nov 2023
Joe was awesome! Engaging and fun! One of the best parts of the trip. Turtle and octopus was super cool.
A must do in Maui and request Joe!
Kacia_J, Nov 2023
Joe was absolutely amazing! He caught an octopus for everyone to pet and take a photo with. He also got great videos of sea turtles and had us hold sea urchins and starfish! Definitely worth the trip!! Joe was very friendly and knowledgeable about everything.
Abanob_A, Nov 2023
Enjoyed seeing some fish and reefs. Unfortunately, did not see any turtles. However we were offered to go back at another day to see turtles. We had a few photos taken of us. Nothing else memorable about that experience. Def not worth the price. Texted group operator upon arrival to the parking lot to get some help finding the group but have not heard back. Overall an average experience or may be below average.
Thanks Shelby!
Shawna_G, Nov 2023
Shelby was a great guide. She made us feel really comfortable and safe getting in and navigating the water. We saw some amazing wildlife. For being as nervous as I was it ended up being an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend it.
Easy, fun, and amazing!
Nikole_R, Nov 2023
Our guide Shelby was amazing! She was super friendly and took pictures for us as we snorkeled. My family and I had a great time. Would highly recommend as an easy but fun snorkeling adventure.
Go with Joe!
Christina_S, Nov 2023
Joe was amazing! Small group atmosphere was better than large groups I’ve been on! He took time to find interesting sea life, caught an octopus(!) and ensured we had great photos, videos and memories!
Amazing title experience!!!
Matthew_J, Nov 2023
What an experience! Joe our guide for the day was incredible, explaining everything before hand and making sure everyone had a great time! We saw a few turtles that got super close to us, took pictures with safe urchins and even got to take a picture and touch an octopus! Would definitely recommend this tour and booking with Joe. We couldn’t thank him enough for such an awesome experience 🤙🏻
Absolutely worth it!
Eric_S, Nov 2023
Joe was a fantastic guide and delivered on all his tricks. He found multiple octopus and sea urchin's for us hold and take pictures with. We were also lucky enough to swim with multiple turtles. The reef as a whole is colorful and full of life. My family has snorkeled in the Bahamas and Costa Rica but this excursion was easily the best experience for us.
Wonderful tour even with bad visibility
Alexandra_A, Nov 2023
We had such a wonderful time snorkeling! Joe was a wonderful guide. The day we went had high surf and limited visibility but he made sure we still saw great things. He made sure we got great pictures and helped when my phone was struggling to download the pictures. Couldn’t recommend this trip more! As someone who gets sea sick easily we loved that it was not a boat tour and we still saw so much. Thanks again!
Joe is Awesome
Kristi_E, Nov 2023
We really enjoyed our time with Joe. He made it very enjoyable. Learning information about the Octopuses and touching one is a one in a life time experience. I am differently going to use them again.
Blissful Experience
Ye_K, Nov 2023
Just an awesome experience, will come back if we ever find ourselves in this part of Hawaii again. Thank you.
