Captain Woody’s Review
I spent a lot of time on Yelp and Trip Advisor researching snorkel charter reviews, and went with Captain Woody’s, and boy was that a good decision! Captain Woody and his crew were friendly, knowledgeable about everything to do with Hawaii, and dedicated to ensuring my family had a great time. I appreciated the fact that Captain Woody keeps the passenger count to a maximum of 6–it makes for a much more personalized and intimate experience. We passed by many larger boats crowded with tourists huddled together in large groups. Captain Woody and his crew were a blast and it truly felt like we were a group of buddies hanging out on a cool boat on Maui, rather than a family being toted around by a crew just looking forward to the pay check.
We went to the private island of Lanai, where you can watch whales, see ancient Hawaiian villages, and snorkel in a marine preserve. Captain Woody and his crew snorkeled with us and knew where to swim to find giant green sea turtles, dolphins and literally hundreds of tropical fish, and we got to swim right next to them all! On top of providing an AMAZING snorkeling experience it must be said that the food was delicious, a great variety of sandwich fixings, salads, and fresh fruit. Yum!
I recommend going with Captain Woody’s toward the beginning of your stay on Maui, as his knowledge about the island is really helpful in planning other activities.
