What people are saying about Maalaea Harbor

Great experience. The trip is very well organized and the capacity is not at the top of the boat and in this way they distribute you by groups. The friendliness of the crew to highlight and the snorkel in Molikini is beautiful. At turtle point we were not lucky enough to see only one turtle but it was really worth it.

The crew was so kind and informative. The food was surprisingly good and plentiful. Good snorkeling gear and life guards in the water with us. But the best part was the view of coral, fish and swimming with sea turtles. All of us had a wonderful time — ages 11, 13, and 50!

Experience not to be missed when in Maui ... snorkeling in Molokini is wonderful and the encounter with turtles in Turtle Town too! In addition, the research center is supported by making the excursion with Pacific Whale.

It was amazing! So beautiful, I felt inside the aquarium with a lot of fish .the crew was very friendly. They served a really good breakfast and lunch. We also had soda water beer and wine . My score for them is 10

It was great. I was alone and the guides kept jokeing about the fact that I was solo to the whole crowd. It made me uncomfortable . Other than that I loved it!!!!
