We signed up for the afternoon Coral Gardens and Captain Dan to us to Molokini Crater which was super awesome. Our first time snorkeling out in the middle of the ocean and we are planning on doing it again next year as a family with our 6 yr old son. We went solo this time for our honeymoon. Tre did great on the video we purchased. Very pleased to see footage of us. MAHALO FOR THAT! BBQ was very nicely done. Not dry at all. Great crew!! ALOOOOOHA & MAHALO!

Had a great first trip to Hawaii. This was the highlight of our trip . Great crew, great and plentiful food , great ride out (wha...les ), Molokini was also great , of course. My brother lives on Maui, we had a great trip. more

My wife and I had a great time on this boating excursion/snorkeling trip today! Kudos to the captain and crew for accommodating th...e windy conditions and incorporating a whale watching excursion. Really down to earth and relaxed... I will recommend this trip with you to everyone that is visiting Maui. Fun time!!! more

Honeymooner

THIS WAS ONE OF MANY TOURS WE BOOKED WITH YOU THRU OUR TRAVEL AGENT AND WE COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE PLEASED WITH IT. FROM STA...RT TO FINISH EVERYTHING WORKED PERFECTLY! more

JUSTIN AND LINDSAY

The day we went it was very windy so we didn't get to Molokini but an alternate site -- they clearly wanted our trip to be en...joyable. The staff was upbeat and humorous. The snorkeling was great, much variety of fish and turtles did make an appearance. more

Kim

It was too windy to go to Molokini so the boat took us to coral gardens. The staff was very friendly, underwater cameras available... to rent for only 30$ with your pictures burned onto a cd for free. The lunch was very yummy and the boat was nicer than some of the others. I would recommend this snorkeling trip over others. more

Jessica

We had an amazing afternoon last Thursday. The crew were amazing. They gave my son (almost 2) a floatation device to lie on with... a window and he saw everything that we were looking at during Molokini snorkelling. Wonderful family memories for the 3 of us :) more

Jen Raponi

We had a great afternoon snorkel to Coral Gardens. The crew was friendly and the fish were a plenty. Swam with a couple turtles as... well. Our 1 year old enjoyed the whole trip as well, especially the glass bottom viewing (although that aspect was not as impressive as it appeared online). Would go on another Four Winds snorkel cruise in a heartbeat! more

Eli

Captain Dan and his crew is always sooo great! We booked last year with this crew and absolutely loved it! We came back as a fam...ily and we still loved every moment of it as it were our first time again. We booked coral gardens but Capt Dan took us to Molokini Crater and sooo grateful! We wouldve bought the pictures but we were only in one candid shot. I wished we had more shots esp the first time experience for our son. Its ok, always next time. We bought them last yr with Tre since we were captured many times more

Sue & James Nivens

We had an awesome time with this crew! They were full of energy and VERY informative! They were very accommodating and made everyo...ne comfortable in snorkeling, SNUBA diving, or those just along for the ride. I would suggest this for everyone! more

Amy

The crew of Four Winds provided a big group with a great experience. There was a lot of attention to passengers, a great meal, and... a fantastic snorkeling experience. We were lucky to get out to Molokini, and though the waves got crazy in the crater everyone saw some amazing sea life. I also loved being able to use the prescription goggles which made my experience even better. I would do this again and again. more

We are return customers for the Four Winds & they didn't disappoint ! We did the afternoon trip this time & the weath...er was pretty choppy, but we were able to snorkel in another area that was also fabulous! The photographer on board was awesome & got some amazing photos of us! Thanks for a great time! more

Donna Kappers

Can I give 10 stars? If you're a newbie, don't worry, it's easy!!! I've never done snorkeling before and my ...wife is afraid of water...HELLO!!! We're giving this place 5 stars!!! That should tell you that this is the go-to place on Maui for snorkeling. We were in line for registration and a couple before us who have done snorkeling many times before were ranting and raving about the exceptional amenities on this adventure. It's a class-act all the way, from start to finish. Food, alcohol, corrective lens goggles, floatation devices...the list goes on and on. I can't put into words the level of excellence that this company delivers from start to finish. EVERY element is addressed and for two newbies who never did this kind of thing and are totally out of our comfort zone, this should give you a clue as to the totality of excellence that this company delivers. more

JLondon

Everything about this experience was great. The crew was super friendly and funny, and the snorkel was very interesting and simple... to do. Absolutely amazing. more

Samantha

We have wanted to snorkel the Coral Gardens for a number of years and found that the trip aboard the Four Winds would not only tak...e us there but at one third the price of our usual snorkel trip supplier. The food was great and the staff friendly and helpful. The only thing I would recommend is warning their customers not to touch the turtles. more

Charles and Kathy A.

I would suggest anyone to do it in the morning because in the afternoon it's way too short, you get about 1hr to snorkel beca...use it takes more than one hour to get to molokini and another to get back. Everything was a lot of fun but I WOULD NEVER DO THE SNUBA OPTION AGAIN - it's a different business so you'd have to pay there, me and my husband were both disappointed, it's not that much of a difference from snorkeling because the line isn't too long, it's just 30 mins of the time you're there, the guy running it was extremely rude and you have to pay an additional 60$ per person, NOT WORTH IT! But apart from the snuba issue, the rest of the trip was fun, and bbq lunch was good! Molokini is beautiful. more

Leca

The boat they normally take you on was in dry dock, so we didn't get the glass bottom boat. Also the wind was too strong that... day, so we didn't get to go to Molokini. ...Basically we didn't get either of the things that were advertised, but those were uncontrollable elements and not the fault of the business. They took us out north along the coast from Ma'alaea Harbor and stopped at two separate locations. We still saw some tropical fish and some coral, and the water was warm and wonderful. They grill up a delicious burger and hotdogs if you buy the option to eat lunch on the boat, which was only $8 extra per person if memory serves. The ladies on the boat were very friendly and learned everyone's names by heart. They helped with instructions on the flippers and scuba gear. A great time with really nice people. I would definitely do it again!! They advise going on the morning sail if you want a chance to get to Molokini. That's where the real beauty is! more

Correction: There have only been TWO afternoon snorkels in YEARS to Molokini. Due to the winds, they don't go out there in th...e afternoon. Coral Gardens is in a very windy location. Be prepared to be bopped up and down. A LOT. A much better location where you can see so many more different varieties of fish, and it won't cost you a dime, is Honokahua Bay. Northwest area. The coral is breathtaking, many many more beautiful colored fish to see. Turtles are there so you can snorkel with them as well. If we got to do-over, our group voted to snorkel on our own in Honokahua Bay. The "glassbottom" portion of the catamaran was closed, so forget it. The lunch they cooked was awesome! But you can get an awesome lunch at any restaurant,right? Skip the Snuba. Waste of money. Not impressed with the views from this harbor. Pick a snorkel that departs from the northwest for better island views. more

Michele

The staff are friendly, and the food was surprisingly enjoyable (my husband had a cheeseburger and I had the boca burger.. also ca...me with all condiments, chips, and drinks). We've been to a couple other snorkeling adventures before, and this one offered pretty much the same entertainment. If you've never tried a snorkel trip and plan to visit Maui, we would still recommend this activity. more
