Captain Patrick and Phil were wonderful. Beautiful sunset sail and so nice to be just our family. Appreciated all the island knowledge and attention to detail. Thank you for making this a great experience for one of our last nights In Maui.

We had such a great time and our guides were super friendly and awesome! I wish we had gotten the longer day! The pool noodles were great to have but we found we didn't really need them out there.

Crew was amazing, the food was amazing, and the snorkeling was even better. Saw lots of turtles and even an octopus. Will definitely book again when back in Maui
