Incredible: must go!

My mom and I came to Maui to celebrate her 65th birthday and we decided to go on this adventure. It was far beyond our expectations! The staff was incredible: friendly, knowledgeable, extremely helpful, and caring! The places they took us were beautiful and peaceful. The captain drove smooth and stopped often for us to whale watching (which he did not have to since it was not a whale watching boat). And then as an added bonus, they allowed you the option to scuba, which was an unforgettable experience. Thank you Pride if Maui for a once in a lifetime experience!!!

Aloha and Thank You!. Our seasoned Captains truly are exceptional at operating Pride of Maui smoothly, for your comfort. A little secret too, is that our Maxi Power Catamaran is much wider, and FAR MORE STABLE, with wide open spaces for comfort, safety and ease of movement throughout her sprawling decks. She is by far the most stable vessel on Maui. We are so pleased that you had an incredible "once in a lifetime experience", with us!

Thank You for sharing your great experience with us! So much praise is received for our unsurpassed customer service and it truly is what we live for! To exceed all your expectations and send you home with great and unforgettable memories! It’s nice to read your appreciation for our flagship too. Pride of Maui is the largest Maxi Power Catamaran on Maui, with more space for comfort, stability and ease of movement throughout. That same TLC we provide our guests, carries over to the boat and I’m always pleased to see how well my guys take care of our flagship, to keep her looking and running great. It’s especially rewarding when I look at some of the other boats and quickly see the stark difference in cleanliness and care.

Aloha and Thank you for joining us. I’m glad your day with us was exciting and amazing!! I’ll let Justin know how much you appreciated his patience while enjoying your SNUBA adventure.

Thank You for joining us sharing your experience. Yes, there are so many whales this season, which always makes our job and your experience so special!

We had a lovely day aboard and the snorkeling was so very cool. My boys tried the non-certified “snuba” dive and loved the experience. Great way to see Maui from the ocean. Thanks to the crew for their hospitality and help with all the gear.

Maui vacation

The weather on this day was awesome with 20-30 foot visibility, tried snuba and all I wanted was more, lots of fish and an Octopus but no turtle at Molokini. Definitely rent a neoprene top from the boat and bring reef safe sunscreen, do not bring a full face mask as they won’t let you use it. Safety issues with communication. The staff were very attentive and remembered your name, the food provided was good and included breakfast and lunch with an open bar. Good people and would definitely come back.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Aloha, We are so happy that you had such a good day on the ocean with us. We strive to exceed our guests expectations, by welcoming you into our Ohana. Remembering names comes natural, because my guys take a genuine interest in you as our guest and your overall experience while in our care. Safety is our number one priority followed very closely by unsurpassed service. Of course the octopi and other wonderful marine animals contribute greatly. Oh yeah, we also have reef safe sunscreen onboard, the boat, should you run out or forget to bring, Thanks again for joining us!
