After several attempts, this was first time I actually was able to snorkel successfully. The boat captain gave me several tips that really helped. Having the life preservers around the waist and holding the noodles out in front really helped. Enjoyed the reef and all its sights. Food was great. Disappointed to not see dolphins but only saw two the whole week in Lahaina.
The staff and the food were great, but we didn't realize it was going to be an almost 2-hour boat trip each way, which didn't allow for a lot of snorkel/ in the water time. Not to mention the water was very choppy due to the wind( nobody's fault) so people were getting seasick left and right on boat
Unfortunately the trip was very windy and rough and many guests ended up sick. The crew did their best to accommodate everyone. We did stop in a protected cove that was much calmer to do our snorkeling. I wouldn't say the sights were anything remarkable -- an average time and average sights.
Lunch on the return trip was good. Our only comment is that for the price of the excursion it might have been nice to get a few complimentary drinks on the return trip. We've been on dozens of similar trips in the Caribbean for much less money and enjoyed open bar on the return. On this one it was simply a cash bar and the prices were someone captive.
A nice boat and crew but pretty much average otherwise.
