Weather was disappointing, snorkeling mediocre
William_A
, May 2022
Mediocre rating due to weather and failure to get to Lana’i; spot chosen was just OK. Understand decision. The Captain(Paul) and crew were efficient and personable. The bast part of trip for me was cruising around the Kapalua area great perspective that part of Island from water

Thank you for your review. The safety of our passengers is our top priority, and the final docking decision is made by our experienced captain.The views of Kapalua are beautiful! We are glad that you still had a great time aboard Quicksilver.

Nice boat ride, so-so snorkeling
Kim_B
, May 2022
If you want to enjoy a boat ride with a little snorkeling this is a good option. Great crew, nice boat. The snorkeling was so so, and not really worth the long boat ride if you are not into boat rides. Of course there is no way of knowing what sea life will be present at the time and place you are snorkeling so it is what it is. We had a great day though and saw lots of dolphins, a monk seal and a hammer head shark while on the boat.

This was our first trip to Maui and our first time snorkeling! It was a GREAT experience for all of us! The entire crew was awesome and entertaining. The Captain’s commentary was both historically informative and funny! It was AWESOME to see two different species of dolphin, a hammerhead shark, flying fish and schools of fish I’ve only seen in aquariums!!! Thank you so much for this enjoyable trip that we will remember forever!!

Staff made it a great experience!
Enrique_R

Trip was awesome! But the staff made the whole trip! They were very helpful and friendly and went above and beyond to help everyone on board. They really stole the show. My wife and I were a little unsure about snorkeling but this trip changed our minds and we loved it. Overall it was a magnificent experience. Tips for future travelers - bring a towel with you. Even if you don’t get sea sick take Dramamine before you get on the boat just to be safe. Bring a hat.

Had fun
Maria_L
, Apr. 2022
Saw a pod of about 30 dolphins playing - just amazing to see! Great friendly staff who double-triple task: divers also distributing snorkel mask and fins, pass out water and chips, facilitate check-ins, collect trash. Captain Paul was fantastic, funny, made us feel safe and relaxed. Left at 7am, returned at noon, snorkeled for an hour in just 1 spot. Boat has slide, dive deck, lots of noodles & flotation device. Snorkel 101 lessons was good for beginners. Pulled pork sandwich, crudite, coleslaw for lunch, Costco danishes /muffins plus coffee, hot chocolate for breakfast were provided. Great fun

Great snorkeling trip to Lanai. Boat is nice, crew super friendly and prepared, equipment too notch. Wet suits for rent if you are the cold type. Food is abundant and not bad for a boat trip. Snorkeling was ok- lots of fish but not a turtle spot. If you have been to Molokini this is a nice change and we were the only boat out there

The staff was amazing! The captain was very funny and took us on an incredible trip! You could tell he loves his job. We went snorkeling, got to see lanai and had a fantastic lunch. Biggest bonus was seeing dolphins, flying fish and Wales! We stopped and got to take in all the beauty as they swam around us. Thank you for a lovely day.

Best Experience Ever
Jessica_A
, Feb. 2022
A fun snorkeling experience turned into a once in a lifetime humpback whale and spinner dolphin experience. We had so many humpbacks surrounding us we couldn't start the engine to go back. They came so close to the boat you could feel them splashing. After putting on a show for all us they left and we were able to head back only to run into a super pod of spinner dolphins. They kept following the boat and jumping along side of it. This trip was definitely an amazing experience.

Great, fun and friendly crew. Captain Heather had lots of interesting information and was very entertaining. The snorkeling was wonderful with many varieties of fish. We also saw spinner dolfins and whales. On our way back we had time and good conditions for a “blue water” swim. It was a great time and memory. Would highly recommend this snorkel trip.?
