Enjoyed seeing a dolphin and calf. Was disappointed that we made one stop to snorkel for about 40 minutes. I thought we’d go to multiple snorkeling spots in the five hours we had on board. We didn’t make it to Lanai due to weather, however, based on reviews of other carriers they made it there the same day and morning we were booked. Would not use the company again.

Excellent trip in every way. Was a bit disappointed that we had to turn around because of weather. But the captain made it up. With tins of turtles in turtle bay. She did find the dolphins. Which was truly amazing as the swam around the boat. And then added the deep water swim. Excellent!!! Also crew member Jamison ( Jamo). Same name as our son. Nickname too. Way fun. He was great!!! 5 stars for sure

Great trip. Beautiful location, coral and large fish. Will definitely do it again in the future. Had hoped to see dolphins. I understand there is no guarantee, but had expected a mention that they were keeping an eye out.

Thank you for your feedback. Our captains and crew are trained to place the passengers in the best position to view sea life, and while observing whales, dolphins or turtles is not guaranteed, the large majority of our passengers get the opportunity for some great sea life experiences above and below the water. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your snorkeling tour aboard Quicksilver regardless :)

The right crew to help ease the anxiety

My daughter is 10 yrs old and has anxiety, the way the boat rocks when going into the water freaked her out. The crew member Julia was so kind and patient with her, she didn’t go the first time and the captain Heather gave her a refreshment and a book about fish to read. We waited for my son and husband to return to the boat and then we all tried to go out together, Julia was there again to cheer her on and since the tides were strong Jameson gave her a lift to see the turtle coral reefs. She wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support of the crew staff. When we stopped off to free swim, Julia came back and stayed with my daughter the whole time!! The food was also good, drinks kept coming and the energy of the staff was positive, fun and we all had an amazing time!! I would recommend to sit up front on the bottom deck, especially when the dolphins come close to it (:

Most of the staff were very nice, some were not. Bad weather day for snorkeling, which is not their fault and they did everything they could. That was obvious and appreciated

Thank you for sharing your feedback on the Quicksilver snorkeling tour from Lahaina. Our crew is great at what they do. Our captains and crew are trained to place the passengers in the best position to view sea life, and while observing whales, dolphins or turtles is not guaranteed, the large majority of our passengers get the opportunity for some great sea life experiences above and below the water. In fact most reviews mention great sea life experiences. We strive to provide stellar customer service to all our passengers and guests. While over 90% of our reviewers rate us as excellent or very good, we appreciate and value all feedback our customers choose to provide.
