Captain Mark is a great guy who wants to make sure your group/family enjoy their time with him. He has great knowledge of where to take you based on your needs. We threw snorkeling, fishing and sightseeing on our trip and he insured all were accomplished successfully. His personality and professionalism did offset some planted expectations of the marketing. The... More

My husband and I had an unbelievable day with Captain Mark aboard Xian, by far the best thing we have done in Maui since our arrival! We spent three hours touring the shores of Wailea, snorkling at Molokini, ending the day swimming with the most beautiful sea turtle we had ever seen! Captain Mark cracked us up with his funny...

We had a great snorkel trip with Captain Mark. He was informative and very entertaining. We saw awesome coral reefs and swam with turtles. Highly recommend and feel it was worth the extra money to have a private tour with our family.

Highlight of our trip. My girlfriend and I were on vacation in Maui for her 30th birthday and she wanted nothing more than a private chartered boat to go snorkeling. I found Captain Mark and Wailea boating company after many many searches on the Internet for a reasonable private charter on Maui and they were by far the most reasonable.... More

After 40 min we headed to Molokini and spent an hour snorkeling, and then headed to meet some turtles (and we... More

We did a 2-hour private whale watch charter with Captain Mark, and we couldn't have been more impressed. Mark was wonderful as a professional guide...his attention to detail and safety were very much appreciated, but he is also very friendly and was awesome with our three small children. We saw whales for the vast majority of our 2 hours. His... More

What I loved about my trip with Captain Mark was his attention to detail and safety. He took us to the private snorkel spots, he in courage us not to be afraid. We snorkeled with thousands of fish, swam with the turtles, saw the caves and blow wholes, came very close to the breaching whales. The smaller boat gives you... More

Captain Mark showed us a fantastic time. We chartered his boat for 3.5 hrs to snorkel and whale watch. I brought my wife, parents and 4 year old son who had a blast. Mark had safety/snorkel equipment for all of us, even my son. Snorkeling at Molokini island was the best I have done. Crystal clear water, plenty of fish,... More
