Wow! Wow! Wow! Amazing views and great service. Great snorkeling views of the fish and turtles. Jumping off the 3 story deck of the boat was for sure a experience. Provide food and drinks. Alcohol is provided at a great price of $2. Be advised not to bring spray on sunblock or the crew will crack jokes about you.

Big boat and friendly staff

Friendly staff, great adventure. The only thing that would make it better would be better food. The breakfast was a Costco muffin and some fruit and the lunch was a sandwich with a bag of chips and cookies. So if you’re looking for a dining experience, this isn’t it. But if you just wanna snorkel and get some sustenance, it’s perfect. The boat is big and nice with spacious seating.

Craters to Turtles

We were so lucky there was no wind today as this only happens once or twice a month they said, the snorkeling at the crater was very cool , the visibility was great, but I wish we did the snuba now, the crew was super helpful and friendly, then they opened up the jump off platform and slides which were super fun, William the photographer was awesome, and we purchase the $95 dollar package which included all the photos taken the whole day, on the boat under water at both Molokini Crater and Turtle Town, there was over 1400 pictures, well worth the money, we also saw about 4 sea turtles at the second snorkeling location, we would definitely do this again
