    We did the sunrise snorkel tour and from start to finish it was a fantastic experience! Our driver arrived right on time to pick us up from our hotel and the crew gave a great overview for how the morning was planned. Once on board, we were served breakfast and drinks and reef-safe sunscreen if needed. If you’re on the fence about what tour to take - I’d definitely recommend booking the sunrise tour over the daily that leaves around 9:30am. You’ll have a much better chance of seeing turtles (we lucked out and saw 15+), the ocean is much more calm, and each spot will be less crowded from the other tours that started to arrive just as we departed each location. Highly recommend!

    We did the Deluxe Sunrise Snorkel out to Molokini stopping at Turtle Town on the way back. Was skeptical about pricing but it seems to be par for the course so what can you do. We were staying in Wailea and got a hotel pickup... bang on time! Loved the local beach access which was much closer to our hotel AND Molokini than traveling all the way to Lahaina only to spend time on the boat coming back missing out on snorkel time. The tour gave us 45 minutes at Molokini and 45 minutes at Turtle Town and, since we were on the water early, there were hardly any other boats at the crater when we arrived. While the snorkeling itself wasn't anything to write home about (not a fault of the Kai Kanani team, I've been spoiled with other experiences elsewhere in the world) the service and team were outstanding. Clear concise instructions, extremely attentive to all the passengers whether that be helping them with equipment, getting them a drink when they noticed their cup was empty or taking garbage once they'd finished. Have nothing to compare them to but I wouldn't hesitate in recommending. A truly professional outfit with a very nice vessel!

    I have been on many sunset cruises and Kai Kanani blows the competition out of the water with their seamless professionalism and friendly customer service. The boat is large, safe, clean, and well maintained. The crew are knowledgeable, personable and very attentive. The food is plentiful and excellent and the drink service is fast and delicious. Our cruise was a delight, leaving from one of the most beautiful beaches on Maui, a little known gem providing beautiful views upcountry and out to Molokini. Safety first was obviously a priority with the beach loading (plan on getting wet to the waist!) And offloading, and the entire experience was a fun, safe, casual, relaxing, immersion in the beauty of Maui. Highly recommend! It's worth paying a bit more to go on a boat that actually sails with a company that stands behind its quality experience.

    Amazing experience. Came highly recommended. We took the sunrise snorkeling tour and everyone was great and extremely helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone coming to Maui and wants a fun excursion.

    Not our first time on Maui with Kai Kanani because of their awesome service. We did the sunset cruise with our adult children, excellent food and drinks. Loved the sunset views and sailing. A must do when you visit!
