Quicksilver Dinner Cruise Review
"We hadn't been on the water since we'd arrived. When we got to the boat, the crew was really friendly and helpful. We've been on boat cruises before and know that staking a good spot is crucial. We immediately found a good spot and stashed our belongings on the chairs. Once the boat was full and ready to go, we noticed we'd done this for no reason! The Quicksilver has plenty of room and many great spots to sit and enjoy the view. There was a musician playing great music. We left the harbor and had some complimentary cocktails. The warm airs of Maui are particularly inviting when you're rushing over the water in a big boat. We had plenty of time to walk around and explore while we went out to ocean. At one point the ocean had some chop, but the catamaran handled it really smoothly. I was surprised because my husband can get sea sick. He was fine throughout the trip. Dinner was perfect. It was such a treat to enjoy a delicious dinner out on the water as we watched sunset. And what a sunset!! Maui never fails to inspire me at sunset. It was especially magnificent over the ocean. We had some more cocktails and relaxed while listening to good music. My family will be doing this cruise again soon. One thing I have to commend you on is the price. I spent more for dinner at a subpar restaurant in Lahaina than I did on the whole cruise! Keep it up!"

Trilogy Catamaran Sailing Snorkel Review
"I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the excellent instruction you provided for my first experience snorkeling. Not only were you patient and kind, but you were exceptional! I really wanted to be able to do it, but my confidence level was so low it was working against my chances of success. I do not easily trust others, but you gained my trust right away, and because of your approach with me, I was able to accomplish more than what I envisioned I would ever be able to. My sister who has taught swimming all her life said she could not have done for me what you did. Trilogy is fortunate to have you on board for other nervous first timers like me. This will be a memory I will treasure forever. God bless you in all you do. I am so thankful you were there for me today."

Frogman II Whale Watch Review
"I've been on a lot of whale watches in my day. I live in Santa Barbara, California with my wife and son. We go to the aquarium in Long Beach quite a bit too because our boy is infatuated with ocean life. Charlie loves the whale watches, but they kill me. It's great to see him have fun, but until now i'd never seen a whole lot of action. Mostly just tail slaps from 1/2 mile away while we sit in the cold. What a surprise it was to go on a whale watch in Maui! We saw what we'd normally see in California (from an entire trip) in the first couple minutes! Humpbacks were every where. We had to stop the engines a bunch of times because of the close proximity. We could hear them blowing air out of their blowholes. Incredible! I think I was more excited than Charlie, and he was beaming! One of the humpbacks breached right off of the left side of our boat! It was amazing. The splash was enormous and everyone erupted in excitement. Since this first trip, we've gone again 2 more times. I expected less, since the first trip was so spectacular, but we we're given a show everytime. We'd be watching whales play next to us, and see more in the distance doing the same. I don't think i'll ever do a whale watch trip anywhere else again. OH, and the Maui Ocean Center is incredible too. Charlie loved the shark tank. Maui's got everything for an ocean lover. I've already suggested the Frogman II to my friends and want to thank you for all the fun. We'll be back next year same time. Mucho mohalo to you all!"

Maui Magic Dolphin Review
"There is just no other experience like this in Hawaii! We have traveled to all the islands, over the years, and have done so many things. I thought we had done it all, until we took your "Dolphin Discovery" on the Maui Magic! You should rename your trip to Dolphins Galore!!! We saw so many of them and they were so close to the boat too. To see them riding the bow of the boat was just so cool. We got lots of pictures. I sent you a few... hope ya like 'em! We loved your trip! Thanks!"

Captain Steve's Whale Watch Review
"I read Kayger12's review and decided to book a trip, mostly because of his well outlined "3 reasons" to go with Captain Steve. The service over the phone was informative and helpful. I was planning to bring my 8 and 5 year old on the trip. I was reassured of the availability of appropriate sized life vests. As the review pointed out, we addressed several humpback whale pods, if one is not active then we were off to another. Very early in our trip we found one pod in which there were two "breeches" within 10 seconds of each other. While watching two pods with the engine off, one pod of whales turned right for us. The male whale swam directly beneath our little boat. Being right on the water the experience was awesome.
There was a larger boat that may have had more amenities on it that was heading towards some of the whales we were watching, however it was very sluggish in the water. By the time the boat was approaching, we were off to find an active pod. It is a numbers game. The more whales you see, the better chance you have of finding an active group. I think that's the advantage of Capt. Steve's outfit. My kids had a great time. They snapped the photos attatched. x3 Minolta digital point and shoot.!"
