Customer Review – Ellen

This guide is wonderful! The maps, the parking and entry tips, the listings of what you’ll see in that spot and the photos to back it all up. Fabulous work, thorough and detailed, nice big print and lots of clear photos. My husband and I are so impressed. Even the trade winds map, so basic for the inundated…

Customer Review – David

I had travelled from New Zealand to Oahu for work, I took three days after for Maui wanting to get in some good snorkelling. I wasted the first day with internet suggestions. Came across the amazing Maui Snorkeling Guide and had the best two days possible. The tips on parking and entry were perfect. Winds and tide made it easy for me to plan my mornings and then find the right spots for the afternoons… lost count of the number of turtles. Highly recommend this guide… I travel for a living.

Customer Review – Caroline and Steve

…we think your eBook is awesome! We have been frustrated by the lack of accurate information regarding snorkeling sites here on Maui. We would visit sites and find that we turn the wrong direction or not swim out far enough and miss seeing the best parts of that reef. We have used your Maui Snorkeling Guide and have snorkeled some amazing sites.

Yesterday, we snorkeled alone with large schools of fish, a two foot pufferfish and about 15 turtles… I was skeptical that we would need your guide and kept relying on internet sites to blindly plan our mornings. Now, we just pull up the eBook, read up on the region we are planning to visit, check the surf reports and launch wonderful dives.

Customer Review – Charley

I wish I’d had this Maui Snorkeling Guide ten years ago. My wife and I have made five Maui trips in the past ten years and have explored and learned something new each year. Each time we learned stuff the hard way…. and slowly. This guide allows you to skip the “school of hard knocks” and helps you to optimize your time on the island. The guide identifies all the best snorkeling spots and evaluates them so that you can choose which area to invest your time into… and then provides directions, tells you what to avoid, and where the snorkeling is located within that location.

For instance, Napili Bay is huge and I’ve never found anything under the water there other than sand…. now I know where to explore… and plan to this coming June. In short, this guide will greatly enhance your enjoyment of the trip and is a must have for first time visitor and return visitor alike.

Freedom to Be Your Own Guide – Save Money on Boat Tours

The vast majority of the best snorkeling spots on Maui are accessible from shore. That means you don’t have to go on crowded boat tours on their schedule, to spots you can’t control, no matter the weather. Your snorkeling will be better and you will save money in the process. Where boat tours are a good idea, like to Molokini, we recommend them.

Customer Review – Iggy

The best part, besides the obvious descriptions of the locations, are the photos describing access and parking at the site. It really helps the non-local orient themselves and ensure they are at the right spot.
