My cousin's wife made the reservations, and told us we were going on a Safari. She got it right, it was an adventure of the First Class!
From the moment Captain Dave Larsen said, "Turn Off Your Cellphones, we are going where there is no reception" I knew we were in for something special. A Very Special Adventure!
Captain Dave and Captain Eric made our trip wonderful; we felt pampered and teased, all at the same time. We made friends, we saw incredible sights, fish, bottlenose dolphins and humpback whales.
We just barely got out of the Lahaina Harbor, and Captain Dave gave us a safety talk. All the important stuff....and then..... there were no rules, except to have fun!
Captain Dave designed and built his boat, the Lanakila, just for these waters, just for the boat tour around Lanai. It has everything for the comfort of the passenger; storage under the seats, hand rails for safety, water to rinse off the sea water, good food and even a "head". There are windows that unroll in case of bad weather, (we did not need them).
The Captain has a great story for everything, stories, history and a warm brand of crazy makes this trip FUN! He has music that seems to fit every turn and every snorkel spot just perfectly.
As the Captain said, You pay a little more for this trip, but you get a whole lot more. He owns his boat and he can take it where he wants to. He can get his MoJo back by running through channels and up into caves. He can give you a thrill and the best snorkeling all on the same cruise.
If you don't do anything else while on Maui, go out with Captain Dave and Captain Eric on the Safari Boat Excursion. It is the experience of a lifetime! you will never forget it.
Have Fun! Life is short!
