Everyone should book a snorkeling experience with the Calypso!!

We enjoyed this booking more than any other! The staff was amazing. So knowledgable, funny, efficient. Our captain kept us informed of our agenda and prepared us for our adventure. We had an absolutely beautiful day and saw whales spouting and flipping their tails. He even explained what to look for in the water to keep an eye out for them. Molokini was so fabulous. So many fish of all sizes and colors. My family was surrounded by a whole family of Mamos--so pretty and fun! We didn't see turtles as we couldn't get to Turtle Town that day. Some disturbance came up in that area, so the captain took us to Coral Garden as our second snorkeling area. Lots of different fish there. We liked that our food was very fresh and prepackaged for us and plentiful. For breakfast, there was POG (love this juice) and fresh muffins and fresh fruit and coffee. For lunch after snorkeling at Molokini there was a turkey sandwich and chips. Just right. And of course you could order drinks after we were done snorkeling. This was an amazing experience that I would recommend to all. They gave instructions on getting in and off the boat, their equipment was great. They got all our sizes and brought the fins to us ahead of time so no confusion. Told us to get them wet for easier attachment. People of all ages were in our group and they had a blast. Kids were going down the slide. Fun, fun trip. Thank you!

This is the best excursion and if you are wondering if it is worth the money, 100% yes! The staff is fun and helpful. The boat itself is comfortable and can accommodate most needs. The snorkeling was great. The boat had a slide and jumping platform which adds to the fun. Adult drinks are good and very cheap. I would recommend this excursion for anyone.

The crew were all very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed to have a great experience. There were a lot of ladders which made it very easy to get on and off the boat efficiently. The only thing that needed improvement was the quality grade of the lunch meat in the sandwich we had for lunch.

This was amazing! The entire crew was so nice. The played great music on the cruise over and also gave some historical points. We saw seals, whales, swam next to turtles! The Snorkeling equipment was good. The whole things was a great experience. If you’re going snorkeling casually in Maui this is the boat to go on. Love it!

Though the swimming conditions were harsher than we anticipated, no fault of anyone other than mother nature, the Calypso team did a phenomenal job keeping us safe and comfortable. They were always observant, gave me anti-fog spray when she noticed I had fog in my goggles, and even helped me loosen a cramp while underwater. When we were swimming around they'd make small talk and guide us to where they found turtles. We all appreciated the humorous educational narration by the speaker. When we were seated we were aided by team members for comfort and any general questions we had. It was an overall customer-service driven performance that my group loved and talked about after our tour. Would highly recommend this tour if you're looking for a team and experience that puts the customer first. Mahalo!
