Overall the trip was super awesome. With young kids onboard the skipper catered to them and all aboard. Cpt. Dan also taught all those aboard about the history of hawaii, we saw cool spots, cleaned the ocean of lost inflatables (that's the kids got to keep), all the while ripping thru the Pacific Ocean in an awesomely insane jet boat trip. Thanks for the great memories!

Well worth the early start to snorkel beautiful coral without crowds offshore Lanai. Checkin was easy and crew was suburb. Also visited the Lanai spinner dolphin pod which was cool and of course saw some whales in route. Ready to do it again,.. snacks and drinks provided as well. Loved the donuts on the way out.

Kaanapali Ocean Adventures did a fabulous job of combining fun and safety. The boat trip to Lanai was exciting and the snorkeling was amazing the reef was like an underwater botanical garden. It was spectacular. They gave us a lot of freedom and space to swim around exploring. They also are super accommodating and encouraging for those of us who were nervous. I cannot wait to do this again with them.

Myself, 9 year old son, friend and her 11 year old daughter went on the half day snorkeling excursion with Kaanapali Ocean Adventures. Willow and Captain Dan were friendly and knowledgeable. Willow was really amazing On! On our way to the snorkeling spots we saw a pod of dolphins which was amazing. The two snorkeling spots were great locations and we saw so many different types of fish. Willow went out on a surf board to look after everyone to ensure we were safe and comfortable. Overall we had a great time and it was a great experience.

This snorkeling trip was amazing! We saw tons of dolphins, sea turtles, snorkeled in 2 spots! We Loved it:). Only slightly negative thing I have to say is, for the price per person they should definitely step up the food and beverages…and even offer a few adult drinks. Other than that it was great!

Nothing fancy, but the crew was great and I appreciated that the captain was willing to adjust our itinerary to find the best snorkeling spots. The dolphins were amazing. Had a great time. Would totally do another trip with this crew!

We did the half-day snorkeling trip with the family. It was supposed to be two locations and the description said there was instruction provided. Instead, we only visited one location and there was minimal to no instruction whatsoever. The guides were knowledgeable and the equipment was good but overall we did not get as much value out of this experience. It didn't help that the rest of the passengers were all one group and got quite drunk on the boat.

Amazing experience on the Insane boat this morning. Dan was a great captain, and this was our favorite thing we have done on Maui so far. Here is why:

1) We were flying over the ocean at high speeds.
2) We still felt very safe. It is an exhilarating experience, but not an intimidating one. Perfectly fine family activity for children and adults.
3) It is only an hour or so - it does not take up your whole day.
4) Everything was very organized and instructions were easy to follow.
5) The price was great for the value we received.
6) We were amply prepared to get wet. No asking where is the best place on the boat to stay dry. We knew we were going to get wet and prepared accordingly.
7) We saw a baby and a mama humpback whale breaching crazy close to our boat and watched for about 20 minutes. I canceled a whale watching tour after we got off this boat because we had already seen what we believed was the very best.

Definitely sign up, seriously. It is so fun! I normally hate getting wet on boats, but I would do this over and over again without hesitation.

"Insane" from Kaanapali Ocean Adventures was a great ride! Unfortunately, a belt blew half-way through our ride, but we had a blast none the less! The captain was knowledgeable and entertaining in a down to business way Behind the scenes, reservations were flawless and staff were super friendly and helpful. Ocean Adventures even gave us a full refund as we couldn't reschedule after the boat was repaired. Great service all around team!
