We called him the day before we wanted to go, and he happened to have that day available. We debated whether we wanted to spend as much money as we did (roughly $800 for a... More

After finding Captain Woody on a google search, I emailed him to check availability last week while my family was in Maui. He responded immediately and we booked Thanksgiving day with him. From the moment we showed up, he and his deckhand "Auntie" Megan, were kind, professional and fun. His boat is pristine and beautiful. We started off leaving the... More

Had a wonderful time out and about with Capt'n Woody and MJ, our Snorkel Goddess. We told him the things we were interested in and he worked with us to make sure they were covered, the best that we could considering nature was involved! Interesting places to snorkel, whales to see, history to learn... it was a fantastic trip! Thank... More

We were very pleased with our 1/2 day on the boat with Captain Woody and his mate, EZ. Both were extremely professional and courteous...yet very laid back. We saw parts of Maui we would not have seen with any of the other big snorkeling outfits. Woody is also quite hilarious and we were thoroughly entertained the whole time. Highly recommend... More

Captain Woody and first mate Eric were amazing! They made it so special for my family of 4. Would highly recommend. SOOOO much better than a group commercial snorkeling tour. Would give 10 stars if I could!

Capt. Woody's was who we used last week. Private snorkle trip was $1200 for 6 hours with food and drink. It was one of the best snorkle trips ever, and we do alot of tropical island travel and boat charters. He leaves out of Lahaina from Mala boat ramp. Food was outstanding. Woody has been doing this for over 20... More

Captain Woody and EZ took us out for an amazing day! Our first stop at the pier we saw 10 sea turtles at one time! They were very knowledgeable about the islands and were flexible in our schedule. A deli style lunch and beverages were provided as well as all snorkeling gear. What a great day! Definitely worth the (few)... More
