Captain Dave was amazing and his staff excellent. After a great tour around the island of Lanai, with 2 great snorkeling spots, we ended... More

If he is still driving the boat get out if you have attractive teenage daughters. He is the shark in the boat you need to worry about. Know this 1st hand from the inappropriate act he asked me to do when invited back as a guest.

I have gone on this tour three times now and it is one of the main reasons I keep going back to Maui for vacation! I have heard they recently changed management, is the previous Owner still working for them? He was hilarious!!

This was by far the best thing we did during our whole trip! Captain Dave was hilarious! Bring your sun screen, towel and your sense of humor. Captain Dave provides the rest. Breakfast and lunch with beverage all day. On board toilet was nice. This will be something that we will never forget and can't wait to do again!

Most fun activity we have done on maui, we have gone on this 3 times over the last two year. Three snorkel stops, but the best part is the trip to back side of Lanai, he also added a "hike" into a great cave this year.

This year, finally the grand kids were old enough to experience this fabulous activity in Maui , I was unable to make reservation, asked around, it seems that captain Dave just stopped, sold his boat? How sad, it was truly a great experience with for a change someone who was not afraid to push the envelope with his boat, he... More

I actually went in April of 2010 and Loved every single second of the trip on the Lanakila. The first trip I took, captain Dave was not aboard and I'm sorry to say I forget our captain's name but he was fun and made us laugh constantly. The snorkeling was phenomenal! The areas the Lanakila travel are so crystal clear... More
