Best Day EVER!
“This was for sure the best day of our trip! The company itself is easy to work with and having the flexibility to spend our time between snorkeling, whale watching and dolphins was perfect. No crowds! We saw everything and were super blessed! They explained everything to us clearly at our personal orientation before we went out so there were no surprises! There’s fresh water on the boat to rinse with too! Highly recommend this activity and this company…and I don’t do many reviews. We really loved it!”

We Live Here!
“We live here, and were looking for a way to get on the water without buying our own boat. Took one of their boats out and had the most amazing time! They gave us an awesome orientation, launched the boat, and off we went. Saw SO many whales it was crazy. Went over to Molokini & hung out there for awhile. Then crossed over to Wailea and traveled up the coast. Found a mooring that we hooked up on for an hour, went swimming & ate lunch. Called that we'd be back in 30 minutes, and they were right there to take our lines, and take over the boat from there. So nice to just show up, take off, and then leave the clean up to them! Looking forward to doing it again! Highly recommend this avenue to all!”

“Just got done with the boat rental from a few hours ago. In a word, AWESOME! We started at 6am so we beat the crowds for snorkeling at Molokini, then just cruised around looking for whales. We saw at least 10, with a few of them fairly close. I will recommend this to anyone coming to Maui. The staff was great at setting us up and made it a breeze. The boat was very nice and we only had to spend $31 on gas, although we didn't go as far as most people might. If you're thinking about doing it, do it!”

Boat was Fantastic!
“What a great time on the water, the boat was fantastic and ran flawlessly. They gave us great instructions and recommendations on where to go. We went to Molokini crater and did some snorkeling, fun time and beautiful fish galore. Then on the way to turtle town the Humpback whales put on a show of a lifetime. How incredible to see them breach so close. Nothing better than having your own boat and the freedom to go where and when you want.”

A Must Do in Maui!
“Best day ever in Maui! The boat was awesome, clean, smooth on the water and the staff was great with explaining the ins and outs of captaining our own boat. We had plenty of boating experience so it was pretty easy. We had Molokini to ourselves mid afternoon and our own private whale watching tour on the way back. No better way to do it! A must do in Maui!”

Cadillac of the Sea!
“There's nothing like getting out on the water and viewing Maui from a different vantage point to round out your Hawaiian experience. My best friend and I were over the whole tour thing and wanted to venture out to Molokini on our own private boat. We originally rented their smallest boat--but unfortunately over the holiday weekend--we were double booked. Here we are thinking, all is lost on our last day on the island. The people at Seascape wanted to save our experience so they offered us their best boat. We took the upgrade without hesitation and it was the best excursion on the island. Needless to say, it was an amazing experience cruising the coastline on what they called the "Cadillac of the sea." They made everything so easy. You truly epitomized ALOHA for us. We'll definitely be back.”

People Need to Know About This!
“This is one of the coolest things I've ever done on a vacation.. The boat was sweet! The guys at SeaEscape are very knowledgeable with boating and cool destinations. We rented the Glacier Bay 24ft boat, drove out to Molokini for snorkeling where visibility was an order of magnitude under water than it is near the shore.. The bouys that you'll need to tie off to are 10-20ft below the surface, but the GPS will take you right to them. Someone will have to dive down, bring up the rope to tie off but its easier than it sounds... the tour guides on other boats didn't tie off, they just "drift-snorkeled" which you can do as well but it's much more relaxing to tie off, snorkel, and just hang in the sun. We stocked the boat's cooler with food and drinks, and December is whale season so on the way back we had whales 100yds off our bow. I rarely yelp, but people need to know about this...who wants to sit on a boat full of tourists when with a little boating experience you can do a 30min tutorial and then hit the water with your own soundtrack..the boat has an amazing stereo...all around a great time.”

We had the best time!
“First time reviewing on Yelp. Felt that this company needed a good word since they did such a great job for us. We rented one of their boats and got the best service and ended up having the best time of our vacation while in one of the boats. We got plenty of information to feel safe and able to keep out of trouble (there are several places that are restricted to boats). The boat was in great shape and a pleasure to work with. We are recommending this activity to all our friends and hope this review will help. If you have boating experience you should spend the money to have a unique adventure. Everyone else is going to Molokini on a charter to snorkel in an amazing place. Escape the crowd. Dive in and moor the boat yourself. Stay as long as you want (we ate lunch there).”

“Rented the 24 ft power catamaran from SeaEscape. What a fantastic experience! Not many get out on the water in Hawaii, but it is a real treat. Great boats, fantastic advice and direction. Best day of our vacation. If you have boating experience, you will kick yourself if you don't give the waters of Hawaii a try with Sea Escape...”

Good People, Good Equipment!
“Rented from Sea Escape and had a fantastic time! Good people, good equipment. The 24 ft Glacier Bay is an awesome boat , handles ruff water conditions very well. The last hour of our 5 hour trip , the wind came up along with the seas . The boat handled great. Saw lots of whales and a few dolphins . Highly recommend Sea Escape Boat Rental,this is the 3rd time we've rented from them. This year , last year and 10 years ago.”

The Staff Was Amazing!
“The boat handles well and the staff was amazing!!! Well worth the private boat rental. I would rent again when we come back to Hawaii and I highly recommend Sea Escape. There is nothing like the beauty, splendor, and freedom of boating around Maui on your own. We snorkeled, swam, and enjoyed the scenery. They explained everything thoroughly and remained available via cell. They made sure we got in the water safely and helped us when we came in as well.”

“What a great idea, we have been to Maui many times and never thought about this. We will always use Seaescape Boat Rentals when in Maui. We took the boat out just my husband and I , took our lunch and snorkel gear, saw lots of whales, just cruised around, it was awesome. we highly recommend this. The staff was awesome, the boat ran well, was clean .. really great. We have already recommended them to friends who are coming to stay in Maui.”
