The boat wasn't crowded with people, which made the journey to the crater and turtle town more pleasant. We were only able to see one turtle but we saw lots of tropical fish. There was a variety of food for lunch and plenty of drinks.

GREAT snorkeling and whale watching trips. Snorkling out at Moliniki 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 hired out this boat to spread our sister's ashes. Captain CJ and his crew were so accommodating. Although the sea was very choppy, he found a calm patch for us to proceed with our memorial. We saw whales and dolphins and watching the sunset...More

What harbor do you leave from? Do you have transport from Lahaina Hotels?

The boats leave from Maalaea Harbor. We also had a rental car since our hotel did not provide transportation. Your hotel might be able to arrange transportation with a car service but I'm sure that would be an extra cost.
