Back again because we enjoyed the first trip so much! This time we were with Captain Teddy and Stephanie and all of us had a really great day. They taught us a lot, made the day fun and made extraordinary efforts for all of us to do and see everything we wanted to. Came back about 20 minutes late so... More

We enjoyed the trip rafting that went over to the lava field in the turning waves. It was exciting and not packed with people. We got to visit to two wonderful snorkel areas and enjoyed the fast paced boat ride. Our guide was experienced and very fun to tour with. I hope others will take this company for an individual...

We snorkeled in Molokini when nobody else was there, so we had it all for ourselves. Our group was less than 10 people I think. Snorkel, mask and fins are provided, which is great if you don't plan to buy or bring your own equipment. Don't worry if you never snorkeled before as guys will explain to you and help... More

I have been to Maui/Kihei twice in the last year. Each time I took friends on this tour. The fast experience on a small raft and engaging and funny staff, are well worth it. I am a fan of this company over any of the larger boats. If you, or your family, want a quick trip out, take advantage of... More

Very fun rafting and snorkeling trip. We did the extended Molokini tour with Joe and got to snorkel at 3 different locations and see some cool volcanic formations. Got to see pods of spinner and bottlenose dolphins, a humpback whale, sea turtles and the usual assortment of reef fish. Joe was very accommodating with everybody's needs and comfort levels and...

We had the absolute pleasure of going out with Captain Larry and Steph two days in a row during our trip to Maui. The ride in between snorkle spots was an absolute blast! The whole family felt safe and the smiles on the boat went from ear to ear. Blue Water Rafting took us places the other boats couldn't go... More

We did some comparison of the different tour operators and decided on Blue Rafting partly due to the good comments we see here. That proved to be a great choice. The snorkeling was great and we were brought to less crowded but equally beautiful spots with plentiful varieties of fishes and turtles. Prior to snorkeling, we had a great time... More

I went on this trip 11/16/16. Wow wow wow. Seeing the island from this point of view was amazing! Not only was the snorkeling awesome, but our captain took us to the lava caves and Molokini Crater. I was quite surprised by how knowledge he was about the island. My girlfriend and I are from Colorado so we didn't really... More

Captain Larry really showed his expert seamansip on our trip. The ocean was nasty between stops but not once did any of us feel in peril. First mate Vandy made sure we were taken care of with good snorkle gear and advice. As a 70 year old rookie I was made to feel competent and had a great time. We... More

Mahalo for your review Steve! I will let Captain Larry and Vandy know that you felt safe and well taken care of during the trip. Great to hear that you were able to see an abundance of aquatic life (and the whales!) Now that you're a pro, we hope to see you again soon! More
