Wonderful weather, Captain went around Molokini since it was a beautiful day, sharing interesting facts about the crater. Great weather equaled great snorkeling. Highly recommended the Calypso

Beautiful day, calm. Captain went out of his way and showed us the backside of Molokini since it was calm. Snorkeling at the crater and turtle town was superb. Wonderful all around, great trip.
Wonderful trip!

This was a wonderful trip, so glad we went. Loved that it was only operating at half capacity right now, I am not sure how comfortable it would have been at full- 149 people. We we t to great snorkeling spots, saw lots of fish and turtles. No whales🙁 The food was good, bring your own towels. $2 alcoholic drinks.
An A+ trip!

We read all the reviews posted prior to our visit. We noticed most complaints were about number of people. So, we were prepared. We had a great time, the team of workers on boat were very receptive and helpful. The food was okay. Breakfast was just okay- but lunch after swimming was awesome. While there were a lot of people, they seemed to have many noodles. Wetsuits and kid view boards. I would recommend, we would do it again with same company.

We had great weather. The crew were very helpful and informative. It was great to have breakfast and lunch which was very good. I definitely would recommend.
Just OK

Was just ok. Not a lot to see there. Only about 6 varieties of fish. No really good coral. Lots of whales so that was a plus.

Sooooo much fun 😍 We had a wonderful time. The crater was amazing, crystal water- best we’ve ever seen! We could hear the whales singing and saw plenty of them on way out and back in. We also got to see a very big male sea turtle and many others at the Turtle Cleaning Station. The boat was wonderful as was the staff. The food was also great! We will definitely book this trip when we visit Maui next year 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽💕

Crew was great. My own fault but I think you should have been made aware you need to bring your own towels. No real complaints it was a great time, especially the whales on the way back to the harbor.
The crew!

Amazing coral and turtles!

So fun! Very knowledgeable staff, great senses of humor too! I had a problem getting breakfast (my fault, we were running late), and the staff member got some eggs for me, even though they had been moved to shore. Loved it, highly recommended! Beware, the seas can be rough, take Dramamine!!
