We had a fabulous time on this snorkeling excursion! The crew was so friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. They took us to two spots. On the last one, we saw tons of sea turtles, beautiful fish, and even a few white tip reef sharks. This was an amazing experience!

Had the best experience snorkeling with the guides Emma, Brayden, and Will. We got to see some white tip reef sharks, an eel, colorful schools of fish, and swim alongside turtles without disturbing them. They were so knowledgeable, friendly, and overall took it upon themselves to ensure we had a very safe trip and experience. Would definitely book again if we had more time on the island.

Saw a pair of bottle nose dophins and a baby humpback whale with their mama. We were incredibly lucky that the whales came up close to the boat to say hi to us. Incredible experience, Jill and Emma were amazing.

The lady and gentlemen that were running the boat did a great job. Several people got sea sick and they responded very quickly to subdue their illness. they were also very informative about the fish that we would probably see and also about the history of the islands nearby.

Whales, turtles, and beautiful fish- great trip!

Fabulous trip! We swam with several turtles for an hour at the first stop. Plus, the crew found three whales, and we saw the whale breach 7 times!! Then we motored to the nearby island of Lanai. There, the water was clear as glass and filled with beautiful fish. The third stop was a fun ocean swim. The crew was good humored and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed Braden, Derek, and Austin -- the whole trip was efficiently managed and fun. Food was good - nice banana bread, homemade cookies and wrap sandwiches. Relaxed vibe, helpful with newbies. We've gone on lots of snorkel trips and recommend this highly.

This experience exceeded our expectation in every way possible. The crew was so friendly from the word go. Both my husband and I were non swimmers and to add to that I had really bad sea/motion sickness. They were so supportive of our needs and made me feel comfortable while on the boat and helped me figure out how to snorkel despite not being able to swim. We had the best time ever. I cannot thank them enough for all their support. To top it all we got to see several whales thanks to our incredible captain who took the time to make this happen! I would certain go back to them whenever we are back in Maui next. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to an absolutely amazing snorkeling experience!

Snorkeling and whales great tour

Fantastic crew start to finish. The boat is so great because it'sow on the water and super small group. We had a view every time. They took time to spot whales, watch groups of males competing for a female, a mom and calf and later some claves breeching. It wasn't a whale watching trip but I knew we might see whales on the way. The snorkel spot at Lanai was amazing!! I highly recommend this tour for anyone and book it before you go whale watching if it's whale season because you won't need a separate trip.

This was my first time snorkelling and the crew made this such a memorable and amazing experience despite the windy conditions. Wasn't able to snorkel at the first spot unfortunately due to currents but the whale watching made up for it! Extremely friendly and helpful crew who love what they do. Emma & Shashta were so kind enough to look after a friend that was seasick and made her feel comfortable on the boat. Would totally come back and do this again!

My family had such a great time with West Maui. The entire crew, Capt Will, Emma and Shasta were exceptional. We saw lots of whales, sea turtles and spinner dolphins. Unfortunately it was pretty windy, but Will and the girls made the best of it. Plenty of food and drink provided. I would highly recommend using West Maui Experience as your snorkeling trip guides.

Unexpected Snorkel trip turned Whale watch

In addition to a warm welcome with genuine smiling faces - detailed explanation of equipment (use, purpose, do's and do nots) was given. The small size group makes all the difference - felt like family. A plus a not expected up close 7 humpback whale sightings. A wealth of knowledge was told to guest. Wonderful experience. Thank you

Great experience!! Snorkel sites were spot on. Saw beautiful fish, turtles coral. One of the guides said it best / it was like snorkeling in an aquarium. Bethany, one of the hostesses was a stand out. Exceptional. She’s a marine biologist. Very knowledgeable about whale behavior. A true subject matter expert. We were treated to a few spectacular displays/showmanship from migratory whales. A baby “breeched”/jumped out of the water. 5-6 times. And one male competing for a lady whale jumped a few times. I didn’t expect to be as awed as I was. It was an epic experience. The whole crew was courteous, warm and caring. Also, the food was tasty. This is important. Many activity hosts don’t give thought to it but it capped the 5 star rating for me. This is a must do next time I’m here. I highly recommend.

Would take this tour again, and recommend it to everyone! 10/10 experience from the comfort and safety, the accommodations and refreshments and the extremely knowledgeable crew. I had my two children with me (11&12) and they were entertained the entire time. We also had some non swimmers on our boat and they were taken care of fantastically. Extremely safe and so amazing! We saw a ton of whales and so many sea turtles! The boat was full but never felt crowded. You should take this tour!
