My best friend and I had the most amazing time! The crew was so kind and we were offered refreshments and food multiple times. We had plenty of time at each spot. Our favorite was turtle cove. We saw multiple sea turtles! All in all it was a wonderful experience. Totally recommend!

The crew was amazing! Friendly and very knowledgeable about what we were doing, about the islands, and about the marine animals we saw. The captain even noticed a whale despite it being May (not whale season) and we got to se a baby humpback breech!! That took a good eye and a kind heart to take us over there. They brought us breakfast and a drink on our way out to molokini. We get in and are immediately surrounded by beautiful fish! Even got to see an eel! The water was amazingly clear. After an hour we get on the boat to the next site. They get us more drinks. I brought candy to help rid the salt taste in my mouth while we waited for drinks. Then we get to the turtle site. It was harder to find a turtle than I expected but we did end up seeing a couple and they were magnificent. Then we had a delicious lunch on the way back in. There is some great shopping at their gift shop with decent prices.

We loved it. The weather was amazing and the second spot that we were taken to was just perfect. The waves got a little choppy but the experience was awesome. We would totally do it with the same group again

We went to Molokini and somewhere near Olowalu. Did see much fish or any turtle at the latter. Molokini has gorgeous reef but the tourists outnumber the fish. Did not feel like we spent long enough underwater. The staff are all friendly and responsive. I enjoyed their explanations of the islands, fish, and the foundation itself.

First Time Snorkelers

Our snorkeling experience with PacLife Adventures was great. My husband and I were both first-timers and the experienced staff made us feel safe when we were the small fish in the big ocean. We saw lots of cool fish both up close and further away. We also crossed paths with some whales and dolphins on our way to “Turtle Town”! What a bonus! Amazing. The second snorkeling location was calmer than the first which was good. Pay the nominal charge to use a t-shirt style wet suit to stay warm and don’t be shy on using a flotation device if you’re not quite comfortable swimming in the ocean. You’ll enjoy the experience more and worry a lot less! It made our trip great! These guys know what they’re doing and are fun to hang out with. Thanks for the memorable experience!
