GREAT snorkeling and whale watching trips. Snorkeling out at Molokini is incredible and if your lucky enough to have a whale come up to the boat...wow. Water, sunning, swimming and lunch. Nice day early morning departure.
We had a great time today on the Leilani with Capt. CJ, Megan and Josh! Started the morning with multiple sitings of humpback whales - including one that swam under our boat and posed for close-up shots when he surfaced right next to us! Good continental breakfast on our trip out to Molokini, where the snorkeling was great! Then on to the reefs offshore near Olowahu to swim with the Hawai’ian Green Sea Turtles, with burgers (including veggie burgers for our vegetarian!), hot dogs, pasta salad and more on the way there. The crew were terrific - friendly, entertaining, and full of good information. We’ll be back!
We had a group of 12 on the Leilani and the crew bbq'd for us and served us beverages from the open bar all day. We had Capitain Jason, Megan, and Tonya and they were awesome. We were treated well and fed well. I definitely recommend this group for private charters!! Thanks so much guys!
This was by far the highlight of our stay on Maui. We opted for the Best Day on Maui because it was slightly longer than any others (6hrs), providing us with more time to spot wildlife, 2 snorkelling stops, and small size. It didn't disappoint on any of those. It took us a few minutes to figure out where we were supposed to be going once we arrived at the harbor, it's slip is located on the side closest to the open ocean...
Save your money on fancy-dancy boats with slides and such. This tour was AWESOME. Boat was huge, clean and safe and captain CJ was great and very experienced. We booked simply cause it was one of the cheapest but it wasn’t a cheap tour! Wetsuits available to rent $10, lunch was sooooo good, breakfast was as advertised, fruit, pastry and coffee but tons of leftover food. Open bar after snorkelling was liquor and beer and awesome mai tais!! We saw lots of turtles and tons of beautiful fish and were so lucky to see a mom and baby whale who were so active. Choose this tour!!!
We had an amazing family adventure aboard the Leilani. We saw whales upclose just outside the harbor within minutes of the cruise. The crew was informative and answered all our questions. We snorkeled over at Molekini and continued whale watching. We were verasatile and trusted the crew to know where to go. We got to experience a very rare whale shark sighting. The food was plentiful- with continental breakfast and later a bbq lunch. We highly recommend the Leilani Private cruise. We had 24 of us and there was just enough room not to feel crowded. We had 13 children ages 4-14 and all of us had a blast.
