We just got back from an awesome morning with Captain Woody and EZ! We had a group of 6, including two kids, on board and the Captain and Eric were great. Throughout the morning we were all over the water - the team has a great eye for whales and made every effort to give us the best view possible.... More

We decided to do things a little differently on our recent Maui trip and charter a boat, rather than go out on the standard snorkel/ whale watching trip. We have had great experiences on those trips, but this was next level. After doing some research and reading reviews, we decided to book with Captain Woody. My wife spoke with Captain... More

Our group of three couples booked a trip with Woody for whale watching and snorkeling. Woody and MJ were fun, informative hosts. Woody gave some interesting history of Lahaina and the Islands, and MJ led us on our drift snorkel tour of Mother reef, where we saw several turtles and plenty of fish. We saw a pod of whales first... More

Don't waste your time on any other trip to snorkel, whale watch or just be on the water. Cpt Woody will take you wherever you want to go safely. He is very knowledgeable about the area and can answer any questions you have. We even took a 15 month old baby and he was extra accommodating. If you are not... More

Woody is the best! He caters his trip to what you want to do, my husband loves to fish, I love to snorkel and see the whales. He finds quality time for anything you want to do! I have been going out on Woody's boat for at least 15 years and every time is so special.

I've probably been on this boat 15 times, and it is never the same, but always fantastic. We bring our friends out every time and everyone comes off the boat happy. The only down side to this trip is that it is never long enough. Woody and Crew are the best!

We prefer private excursions from groups and have been on many but this was the first one with Woody. We were looking to get close to the whales in Maui and Woody made sure we saw a lot of them while also being sure to respect the laws which we appreciated. He also took us to a great snorkeling spot... More

We snorkeled places we have not been and Woody says he has 40 spots. We did 2. We are planning our next trip to Maui on Woody's boat and forget about going on other... More

We have been on Woody's Trip several times and find it to be the best in Maui. Great family experience. My son was able to catch a fish between snorkel spots, something he will always remember since it was his first one! Woody was able make my mom very comfortable about getting in the water and she had a great... More

I don't know if Woody was having a bad day, but he just wasn't that informative/talkative.... To the point where when some of us were snorkeling and some stayed on the boat he was lying down inside his cabin on his cell phone the whole time!? The snorkeling spots were just okay, and the only reason we did see a... More
