It's Hawaiian tradition to remove your shoes before entering a house.
It's boating tradition to remove your shoes before pleasure boating!
This helps keep our soft decking in top shape and keeps the boat nice and clean.
About the Weather...
Don’t call us….we’ll call you.
We suggest you spend your time on Maui enjoying it's beauty and leave worrying about the weather to us! Maui has EVERY climate on earth and extreme micro-climates. One of these climates is..... Tropical Rain Forrest! So, it rains every day somewhere on Maui, but not where we go to play on the water.
Your weather app on your phone is pretty much useless here. If there's an issue with the weather for the time of your trip we will contact you as soon as possible. Please make sure to use a good mobile phone number for calls and texts from us about your trip.
If you must keep up with the weather while on your vacation, we suggest you use an app called Windy and you must use the "NAM" model for accuracy in Hawaii.
How crowded are your tours?
Personalized hospitality with Aloha!
Our vessels are USCG certified to carry 26 passengers plus crew, but we only operate VIP tours in order to provide the best experience possible, so we limit our tours to a maximum of 12 passengers, with the exception of our private tours in which case we recommend a maximum of 15 people.
We want you to experience the best in personalized aloha and and we refuse to pack our boats full. On our snorkel tours, we often have three crew members so our crew to passenger ratio is the highest you will find. Our team really shines when it comes to personal interaction and they love to share their local knowledge, both above and below the water!
Our food is "No Ka Oi"!
We proudly feature fresh, chef prepared, food selections from Alchemy Lahaina.
Our food offerings are chef prepared daily and delivered to the boat right before you tour.
