Crew was fantastic, knowledgeable and friendly. Boat was extremely comfortable, and can easily sit in full sun or in shade. Crew keeps you hydrated with water or drinks if your choice. Captain Paul is a jewel too. I highly recommend this 2 hour cruise for everyone. Just the right amount of time to experience being on the water and viewing Maui from the sea. I will definitely take this cruise again on my next visit.

Our host provided a wonderful generator education to bee hives. He was witty and engaging. The garden was small but delightful. The honey was out of this world. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys knowing how honey is produced.

We were lucky due to a cancellation to get a private flight and Jake the pilot was extremely professional and informative. What an amazing ride. Worth every penny!

Crew was knowledgeable and funny! Had a great time and saw several whales. Can’t say enough good things about the entire experience.

It was great! Nice staff with funny captain. We were so lucky to see whales at the end of April!
