What people are saying about Kaanapali

Tour was excellent. The boat was lovely and our crew was fantastic! The food was very good too. Eli and Patrick were very attentive to our needs and they watched the winds, so we had clear skies the entire trip. We were so lucky to find a beautiful snorkeling spot where we were the only boat. We saw sea turtles and a shark, along with a lot of other fish.

The snorkeling itself was outstanding, but perhaps the highlight was the hospitality and knowledge of the crew! Food was good, and the fresh juices made the cocktails terrific on the ride back. Overall, it was a terrific experience.

Very very beautiful experience, probably the best I had here in Maui. The flight was really good and our pilot, Jake, was very informative and also gave us some advice on places to visit after the tour. Totally recommended!

Our pilot was great, very knowledgeable about the area and made sure we were getting the most out of the flight.

Views were incredible, Pilot was extremely knowledgeable, and the ride was smooth.
