Yes Dear Guest Reviews

May 2021

By far the best experience on the island! Harold and Lori were undoubtedly the most hospitable and accommodating people on our trip! I would book this trip again in a heartbeat!! Enjoyed every minute!

May 2021

What an AWESOME day. Definitely the highlight of our trip. Harold and Aaron were both extremely accommodating, chatty and hospitable. Initially I was concerned 8 hours was too long a day, but we could have stayed an hour longer!! We snorkeled, swam, went to multiple coves and had great food and drink. Definitely recommend.

April 2021

Harold, Joe & Uta were lovely from the moment we inquired about the trip. We arrived to smiling faces and wonderful service. The provided great service and the food was delicious. Were very helpful with snorkeling gear, let us guide where we wanted to go, it was perfection. The best part of our vacatiion.

April 2019

My husband and I were looking for ´the best snorkel cruise´ that was not crowded and great ambiance. The concierge booked us on ´Hula Girl´ and we were not disappointed. Definitely one of the best experiences we have ever had on a snorkel trip. The entire experience was great and we would love to do the sunset cruise on our next visit. The crew were personable, professional, fun and engaging. We wish we could do it all again tomorrow. Everything about the experience was awesom!

April 2019

Ok, I really hate to share secrets, but if you are looking for something a little different, a bit quieter and way way way more luxurious than other sailing/snorkel excursions, you have found your new home. I cannot stress enough how blown away we were with the service and accommodations of this 45 passenger vessel that is meticulously cared for it looked like it was just unwrapped. Captain Harold runs a tight ship. It was beyond fantastic and was the absolute highlight of our two week Maui experience. Thank you!

April 2019

We saw 5-7 whales on our way to the snorkel area. The captain was fun and friendly as well as the staff. I would highly recommend this great experience. Beautiful and well maintained boat.

March 2019

Booked this catamaran ride for whale watching, dinner cruise and sunset. Captain Harold and the entire staff were fantastic. Very friendly and answered all of our questions about the boat, area waters and the whales. Would definitely go again when we return to Maui.

March 2019

Our last full day in Maui we took the day to go snorkeling with Hula Girl Excursions. It w as the best decision of our amazing holiday! We saw whales, went snorkeling and saw sea turtles and lots of amazing beautiful fish. The meal was AMAZING and the host (owner) and Captain were incredible. All crew members were attentive and kind in a genuine way. Definitely will go back on Hula Girl next time I am in Maui!
