Ma’alaea: Lanai Snorkel & Dolphin Encounter was the best boat trip I have ever been on!!! The captain was friendly, informative, and determined to give us the best experience possible! We had the surprise opportunity to see a huge pod of dolphins and they came so so close to us! It was an unforgettable experience!! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Quicksilver boat trips!!

Excellent crew and trip! It was a fantastic adventure for me and my kids. Thanks to the entire team! Only wish we could have purchased pics after we got off boat, as there were so many, we did not get a chance to look and buy.

My family and I visit Maui almost yearly and sometimes twice in a year! We absolutely love going on Quicksilver and have seen dolphin each time we have been on this excursion! Praying we can get back soon and the boat somehow survived the devastation! We love the crew, the boat, the size is not over-crowded... it is the perfect family excursion!

Great experience from start to finish. The crew was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They greeted with a cheery smile and friendly attitude. They were helpful with fitting the gear and answering any questions we had ahead of the snorkeling. Once we docked the boat, they were helpful and kept a very careful watch on everyone in the water. They served a great breakfast and lunch and kept coming around to offer more. I would highly recommend.

Experience of a lifetime! If anyone has the opportunity to take a trip with this crew, do it! They were so entertaining, and informative. They made it one of the best days of our entire trip! 10000/10 would recommend!

apriladuddell

We had a great time snorkeling, seeing the dolphins, learning about Hawaii's history as well as other interesting facts. We even played a trivia game on the way home! The food was good and the employees were great! I highly recommend Quicksilver!

MoloHinkley

We had a great time on our snorkel trip. The crew was wonderful. We saw about 20 dolphins on our trip out to Lanai. We saw a large amount of really cool fish while snorkeling near Lanai. The food on the Quicksilver was also delicious. Thank you for making our trip one to remember. We hope that everyone from our trip is okay as we were there three weeks before the fire. Our prayers have been with the crew of the Quicksilver.
