Nothing but boring corals
Eyal

We were taken close to Lanai for snorkeling. We didn't see any dolphins nor turtles. Saw just very few small fish. Corals in the area wasn't very impressive as well. It was the only snorkeling spot. Most of the time of trip was spent on people jumping from the boat to the water, dining and boating. The crew were nice and professional though. I also just noticed that many of the good reviews here seem fake..

Good but bumpy
Julcris_F

All the crew are beyond expectation. However the ride is so bumpy because of the big waves making some of the passengers sick. For the snorkeling part, it seems the spot has less fish than you expect. The best part is when you encounter group of dolphins.

Yes dolphins are amazing! Each tour is different and the snorkeling location is always weather dependent.

Amazing trip!

The trip was amazing! We saw a huge school of spinner dolphins - they were swimming, jumping, playing and showing off all around the boat. The crew was great and very attentive. Captain Paul was super knowledgeable and had a fun trivia game on the way back. The food was delicious, too! It was windy on the way there, but the snorkeling spot was calm and protected from the wind. The water was very clear. We saw a bunch of little colorful fish, corral, and we even saw a sea turtle swimming by. Thank you for a wonderful trip!

Wow! Spinner dolphins and turtles! Thank you for joining us onboard the Quicksilver snorkeling tour from Lahaina.

Can't wait to snorkel again.

The conditions prevented us from going where the fish and dolphins are. Instead we went to where the Sea Turtles are and it was amazing. We saw a dozen or more. I thought the crew was excellent. I really appreciated that they recognized my sister-in-laws apprehension and called her back to the boat to give her some tips. Because of you caring staff she was able to fully enjoy the experience.

Great sights but not for those who get sea sick!
Steven
, Sep 2021
The crew, scenery, and snorkeling were wonderful. However, myself and many others got sea sick which ruined the experience. Even though water was “calm” the boat swayed the entire time. Snorkeling didn’t make it go away either. My favorite part was how awesome and caring the crew was, including Cody and a gentleman with a short pony tail. We saw a sea turtle while snorkeling and a pod of spotted dolphins at sea which made it worth it.

Wonderful staff. Though facing a lot of difficulties, especially during a pandemic with no tourists, all the girls and mothers try their best to help us with a big smile. I was deeply touched by the captain in the end: "We thank you for your coming. Thanks for giving us a chance back to work".

So true. Thank you for your support during this time, we are doing our best to keep everyone safe and employed.

Average snorkeling trip!
Nikki_S
, Sep 2021
This is my third snorkeling excursion I have taken during various Maui visits and I was least impressed with this one. Although the staff was nice they were not what I enjoy. I prefer a more upbeat, interactive and fun experience. The boat was nice, clean and plenty of space. The conditions the day we went were exceptional and I must add the captain of the boat (Heather) was fantastic. The snorkeling was ok however, we did see two reef shark which I was very excited about. Overall the experience was average. Not bad, not great.

Mahalo for sharing your experience. We are pleased to hear that you saw sharks and enjoyed the Quicksilver snorkeling tour crew.

Maui Lanai cruise

The cruise had a great captain and crew. They were very patient for some non swimmers. Was a little disappointed that we didn’t see dolphins or turtles, but that’s not something that can be planned.

Thank you for taking the time to review your snorkeling tour aboard the Quicksilver. Turtles and dolphins are often seen during our trips, we hope you'll try again sometime!
