Highly recommend when the weather is great
Oct 2021
This was a great tour. My husband and I came to Maui for our (very delayed because of COVID) honeymoon. It was really gloomy (which isn't the norm) our first few days so when we did our snorkeling tour, it wasn't at its best. The visibility in the water was low and it just wasn't a great experience in my opinion (because I've been to clear snorkeling spots, and I'm in NO way an experienced snorkeler). However, these ladies are SO fun! The boat tour around the island to find the best spot was even awesome in itself. The tour guides are really knowledgeable of the island. I am prone to motion sickness so, if you are too, do take Dramamine beforehand and you will highly enjoy it! :O) Also - layer up the sunscreen! The banana bread snack was AMAZING and just seeing the tour was great for us since we've never been to Hawaii before. They recommend their snorkel equipment (even if you buy some that you've never tested, like us) and renting a wet suit top. I highly recommend both and I am not one to spend extra money (which is only on the wet suit top). The water out there is unpredictable and, at the spots you will go to, the water drops about 20 degrees in temperature. The whole thing lasted about 4 hours, a lot of it is the boat ride. I really enjoyed it, although I think it would have been a much better snorkeling experience in better weather. I don't have photos, unfortunately, because I really just didn't want to lose my phone. It was windy, in the middle of the ocean, and didn't seem like a great idea. =) But, it was beautiful, I assure you.

Perfect snorkeling tour!
Fabulous snorkeling experience - Sarah and Amy were absolutely awesome! Unlike the big tours, this one was intimate with more of a local vibe. In addition to knowing so much about the area and the marine life, they made sure to get to know us all, tell some jokes, and even helped my 70 year old nervous mom enjoy her first snorkeling experience ever by giving her individual attention to get her comfortable. They took us to a nature preserve teaming with schools of fish and tons of species - then to an area with more fish and so many turtles!! I really can’t recommend this tour enough - you won’t be sorry!

Best day on our trip
Amazing Day!!
Hannah and Emma were awesome tour guides. This tour exceeded expectations. We saw 2 types of dolphins from the boat and turtles and beautiful fish while snorkeling. These two very accomplished women made it extra special.

Great Trip
Oct 2021 • Couples
Great staff, felt well taken care of and well prepared to snorkel. Great option for kids or new to snorkeling participants. We were taken to two different locations to snorkel. We saw lots of fish, a shark, and tons of turtles. We saw dolphins swimming along side the boat.

Fun trip out of Lahaina!
Had a great morning with Captain Amy and Guide Sara searching for snorkel spots. We went out to Lanai and got to see its fabulously rugged coastline. While snorkeling didn’t work out over there, the trip was super comfy in their coast guard-esque boat. We saw tons of turtles (TONS!) and an octopus when we did stop back on Maui, and we got views of unique blue coral while free-snorkeling at a second stop.

The snacks were fantastic and just kept coming! Really appreciated the complimentary reef-safe sunblock. While snorkels and masks are included in the tour, my husband had bought one for our Maui trip, and the staff was super helpful getting it ready for its inaugural use. (We had no idea there was some prep involved in that.) I also appreciated the wetsuit top available for a small extra fee.

Don’t hesitate to book with Ultimate.

Great snorkel trip!
Small boat, small group which was nice. Captains Emma and Christy were fantastic. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Made sure we had everything we needed. We saw dolphins on the way out and also on the way back in. Two snorkel stops - one at lanai to see corals and fish and one stop to see turtles. Definitely spend the extra $10 to rent a wetsuit top to stay a little warmer and protect yourself from the sun. I highly recommend this tour!

Amazing tour
Oct 2021 • Couples
My wife and I agreed that this was the highlight activity of our trip. The crew was very welcoming and helpful as soon we showed up to check in. They were also extremely professional and knowledgeable, sharing facts about different animals we saw as well as facts about the islands. On the way to Lanai we were able to see some dolphins and they eased us into snorkeling in a calm bay nearby. Heading back to Lahaina Harbor they gave us some delicious banana bread and beverages. Our favorite snorkel spot was an old sunken/destroyed wharf that was swarming with turtles and fish, we were even lucky enough to see a reef shark. Definitely recommend this crew, If anything we wish we had done a longer tour.

4hr Private Snorkeling Tour
Oct 2021
Pros: Amy and Hannah were amazing captain/guides for our snorkeling tour. Many in our group were beginners/non-swimmers and yet we felt safe snorkeling.

Saw a few turtles and a shark near Lahaina. Then off to cruising around the West Coast of Maui. Banana bread, mac nut cookies were delicious.

There 9 of us including 5 kids and all had a great time. Would do this again!

Cons: Price - but this is well worth the private charter
