The boat was very clean. The crew were very helpful, friendly, attentive, and generally awesome. They push the environment stuff a little extra, but not where it was in your face. They are doing the right thing. Would be good if they could go a little further south for turtles (Makena landing) instead of Wailea where reef is a little more dead (bleached).
My family of seven went on this tour during our stay in Maui and everyone really enjoyed it. I've only been on a handful of snorkeling tours and this is one of the best so far. It's hosted by a conservation group called the Pacific Whale Foundation and all the money paid for the tour is given back to help protect and save the reefs. Also, all of the staff on the tour are college level marine biologists or have marine studies backgrounds so during the boat rides to and from the snorkeling spots there are two they host talks and information groups. You can learn about what you are seeing while enjoying the amazing views of Maui from the decks of the boat. The tour starts early but it's worth it for the clear waters. They feed you a small breakfast banana bread, pineapple and melons, yogurt and beverages as you travel to Molokini crater. After that they take you to Turtle Arches to see the sea turtles. While there they host a guided snorkel reef tour which was informative and fun. Once you are back on board the boat a buffet lunch is served, everyone gets a plate and then there are seconds for what is left. There was definitely enough food and you can enjoy the views as you travel back to the Pacific Wale Foundation docks. They provide: reef safe sunscreen, snorkels and flippers, noodles/flotation devices, food, beverages and water. They also have buyout rash guards for 10 which are worth it for the sun protection and help floating. I found with the rash guard I didn't need the noodle and the sun protection is worth it especially if you burn easily. Definitely one of the better snorkel trips I've been on and felt nice to help protect the gorgeous reefs and fish you are enjoying.
We had a good time on this trip. I was unable to snorkel, my husband went snorkeling. The staff were very knowledgeable an nice. Ship was clean. Food was ok.
This tour was wonderful. The entire crew was excellent. Very knowledgeable! We even got a bonus...the captain heard of some whale sighting in the area. So he headed our boat in a different direction and the whales were abundant. Great ending to our day of snorkeling.
Great trip! Staff was very knowledgeable
The Molokini and Turtle Arches Snorkeling Trip was Amazing!!! Great efficient staff. Food was great. Just as we got on the boat we received the ballistic missile threat emergency alert. The captain and the staff was calm and informed us of their plans to confirm the warning with the coast guard. They let passengers that wanted to leave get off the boat and assured them that they would get a refund.
Had a truly wonderful time with the PWF crew. Boat was pristine, captain did a great job of getting us to the places we needed to go, the snorkeling was amazing, and the drinks and food were great! We will be using PWF for snorkeling trips next time we return to Maui! Special shoutout to Morgan who did an amazing snorkel tour for us, pointing out all the fish and creatures we wouldn't otherwise see. Thank you all!
great time fantastic crew all very professional made sure we all stayed safe the food was also very good I would highly recommend this trip.
The water was so clear you could see all kinds of different fish and the corral was amazing.
This trip is absolutely a must do while in Maui! We took the 7am tour and it was absolutely perfect. Every crew member is so wonderful these people are so smart and they will tell you anything you'd want to know about the marine life out there. We were lucky to see several different kinds of fish and even a sea turtle. By the time you get back on the boat the food they serve while its no gourmet meal hits the spot and the boat ride back is just smooth sailing. I looked up several different snorkeling trips and I am beyond pleased with this choice. It's worth every penny I can't wait to go back some day.
