We thoroughly enjoyed our barefoot sunset cruise. The crew was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed delicious appetizers, beautiful views, and great live music. We even got a special serenade for our 30th anniversary! Thanks for making it so special!

Our extended family of 6 had a wonderful time snorkeling at Molokini! We snorkeled several spots on different islands and Molokini offered, by far, the clearest water (100 ft.), biggest diversity of fish, and best variety of corals. Main drawback was the large number of...More
