I really wanted to see and snorkel Molokini crater so I booked a tour through Kai Kanani, being it was the closest convenience for those staying in South Maui vs going to Ma'alea or Lahaina. It was also great that there was a complementary shuttle that picked me up from the Grand Wailea and dropped me off at the Maui Prince Hotel, where the boat launched. There were about 50 people on the boat, it wasn't too crowded, the staffs were friendly, experienced, humorous, and the food was decent (muffins, vegetable crudités, make your own sandwiches and variety of salads, chips, cookies, all-you-can-drink mai tais, beer, and soda).
The only thing I didn't like was the time to snorkel was too short, it felt like only 30 mins being in the water and we were sailing off to Turtle Town. I didn't see any turtles in the water, except one that was bobbing up and down, by that time I was on the boat cause it was getting too cold. Again, it felt like only 30 mins in the water. I was happy that I saw whales during the trip, it was pretty cool being in the water and seeing them. Overall it was a good experience, seeing whales during whale season was an added plus. It is a bit pricey compared to Pacific Whale Foundation's Molokini and Turtle Town tour, theirs offer a stop at Lanai, but if you're staying in South Maui, Kai Kanani tour is a good way to go. Make sure you check online for discounts or ask for kama'aina rates.
