is just no other experience like this in Hawaii! We have
traveled to all the islands, over the years, and have
done so many things. I thought we had done it all, until
we took your "Dolphin Discovery" on the Maui
should rename your trip to Dolphins Galore!!! We saw so
many of them and they were so close to the boat too. To
see them riding the bow of the boat was just so cool.
We got lots of pictures. I sent you a few... hope ya like
'em! We loved your trip! Thanks!

express what pleasure my wife and I experienced on the
Four Winds Molokini trip. We have now been on the trip
several times and it really feels like family every time.
Actually we enjoy ourselves more each time. Capt. John
and his crew keep us in high spirits from start to finish.
What fun! We'll be back soon.
couldn't have had a better time! The crew of the Four
Winds II was AAA****!! Some of the nicest people I met
on Maui. If I had time I would have gone again. We do
hope to come back and do it again.
a note to thank you for a fantastic day on Four Winds.
The Capt and crew set the stage for the passengers and
they are awsome! I have tried several other snorkeling
trips but none compare to Maui Classic Charters. Even
your phone reservationist, Nancy, was the best. Your passengers
notice the details, believe me!
I just got back to the mainland, and wanted to let you
know your crew was fabulous! Hands down, the best service
on the island. I have already recommended you to others
in the office that will be going to Maui this year. Thank
you for better than expected service.

just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for a fabulous
time.We were just there on Saturday September 17th on
the afternoon trip. My Grandmother and I had a blast on
board the Four Winds II. I really appreciated how well
the crew took care of my grandmother. They were all very
friendly and informative. We will definately be recommending
this trip to anyone and everyone we know. If we ever get
to come back to Maui we will be back to see you!!!
and thanks to Captain Tom and his crew who sailed the
morning Molokini trip on the Four Winds on June 23rd.
We were aboard and were thoroughly impressed with the
Four Winds operation. We agreed that our sail with you
was the highlight of our trip!
The boat was comfortable -- roomy and convenient. The
food was tasty and plentiful. The crew was outstanding
-- informative, fun, easy going. We were especially taken
with their casual interaction with the group onboard and
of their interest in the children. Having been lucky enough
to catch a tuna on our journey back to ther harbor, the
crew was very accommodating to kids and parents by letting
them be photographed with the catch. What a glorious morning
in paradise! We sailed, caught the sun, snorkeled and
enjoyed the easy atmosphere all the while.
Since we have returned home, we've referred the Four Winds
II to several friends, some of whom had traveled on other
carriers for the Molokini trip in the past and had no
where near the experience we did. When we're back on Maui,
we'll be booking with you again!
Thanks to all at Maui Charters for a terrific time!
& Sharon Fagan
The video staff
that you have onboard the Four Winds was superb! What
a blast to be able to look at all the fun we had at Molokini
when we got back! We really appreciated the way that Jennifer
was with the kids. She really took the time to make them
feel special and got them involved with it. They were
like little movie stars for the day. Thanks!! Or as you
say in Hawaii... MAHALO!!!!
& Bill Lutz
Captain John and Crew,
I'm writing to thank you all for the seemingly miraculous
recovery of the set of teeth I lost at Molokini. The trouble
taken to firstly find the drowned denture and then to
locate its owner is of the first magnitude and mightily
appreciated. I have been busy in the past week extolling
to all who would listen the efficiency, kindness and care
of everyone associated with the "Four Winds",
and intend to dine out on the story in Australia for many
Special heartfelt thanks go to the diver and the other
staff who persevered with the search both during and after
my snorkeling trip and to the lovely ladies in your Kihei
office for the many telephone calls made to locate me
and to let me know that what was missing had been found.
A toothy grin of gratitude to you all!
To Whom It May Concern:
My fiance and I had such an enjoyable trip on the Four
Winds II yesterday in Maui (Sunday, Feb. 23, morning
trip) that I felt compelled to write and thank you for
your impeccable service and the great attitude of your
crew members. I'm sure your company charters numerous
boatloads of people a week, and although I can't speak
for anyone else, I have to say we were impressed they
are able to keep their positive attitudes. We were so
happy with how we were treated and how we saw others
treated that we will definitely be recommending you
to all of our friends who visit Maui. We were directed
to your company by the book "Maui Revealed,"
who spoke so highly of you there was no doubt in our
minds about which boat to charter. I can't remember
another time when I've enjoyed something so much I've
actually felt the need to write and say thank you, but
our experience was so great I just had to.
There were so many little details that I noticed that
I could hardly list all of them, but the ones that stood
out were the crew's attention to cleanliness, uncontrived
friendliness and patience to all of the passengers (I
could go on and on about how impressed we were with
their kindness and attention to a passenger who was
bound to a wheelchair but was able to get out of it
to enjoy some snorkeling), crew members who actually
CONCOCTED a ginger remedy to help with seasickness (with
minced ginger!), the quality and quantity of the food....
and on and on. We honestly could not find one negative
aspect to the service of the boat and its crew members.
It was by far the best part of an already terrific trip
to Maui! Believe me, I'm not someone who praises things
easily; by nature of my profession I'm pretty critical.
Thank you so much for a wonderful trip. It was well
worth the amount we paid, and we went home with a great
memory of our trip that we'll even have on videotape
(which we hadn't even planned to purchase - but we are
glad we did)!
P.S. By the
way, I'm an editor at a national news syndicate. I'm going
to forward this e-mail to one of our travel writers, Jennifer
Merin, just in case she has the chance to visit Maui and
experience this for herself. Thanks again! If you would
like to use the above part of the letter for your company,
please omit my last name. Thank you!
John was the greatest! The whole crew was wonderful. Very
Friendly and helpful. This was the first time I have ever
snorkeled and they really made it easy. BBQ burgers were
the best! We all had a GREAT time. Will do it again our
Awsome job! You and your crew make it Look EASY and make
the trip FUN! Well done! We had a great time.
want to praise the Four Winds snorkel trip. Capt. John
was fantastic. This was the best thing we did in the islands.
want to let you and your crew know what a great time my
wife and I had on your Four Winds snorkel trip. Capt.
John and the whole group made it all so much fun for us.
From Capt. Johns' personal greeting at the dock, the snorkeling
the wonderful bbq lunch, to the turtles at the end. We
thank you for a very very memorable day. The best thing
we did all week.
just wanted to tell you that our excursion with you on
Maui Magic, October 22nd was wonderful. The whole staff
went out of their way to help us feel safe and have a
good time. The dolphin show was amazing and, of course,
we loved the snorkeling. My husband and I would like to
thank all your staff for helping make our trip so special.
Give them a pat on the back for us.
& Gary Hart
Maui Magic Crew,
We would like to express our sincere appreciation for
a job well done. We were a party of 9 [85,81,75yrs. down
to 6-63yrs.] The crew could not have been more helpful
and fun. The day was memorable and has proven to be the
favorite part of our trip to Maui. The seniors have said
they felt young again. You should all feel a great sense
of pride for the kindness a professionalism demonstrated.
Thank you again! We look forward to "sailing"
with you again.
& Rick Schwab
just wanted to thank you for the most exciting and friendly
adventure I have ever had! Everyone made us feel so welcome.
Your staff is so friendly and warm. They really made us
feel they love their job. It was an unforgetable experience!
& Tom See
Magic was the best all around snorkel trip we have ever
been on and we have done this all over the world. The
crew was very attentive and really went out of their way
to make sure we had everything we wanted to ensure we
enjoyed ourselves and had an unforgetable experience.
This trip is a must to truly experience the islands.
on Maui about 4 weeks ago. My friends and I went on the
AM Maui Magic snorkel tour and had a wonderful time. Capitan
Brennan, Smilin' Bob and Dan made the trip an unforgettable
experience. They were all very gracious, funny, helpful
and knowledgeable. It was a great way to see some of Maui's
beautiful sights. The ship was comfortable and I really
liked the fact that there were not as many people on the
trip as some of the other charter tours seem to have.
I especially enjoyed the music that was played on the
trip. I was hoping that I could get a listing of the songs
that were being played. I remember some of them but I'd
like to put together my own compilation to put with my
Hawaii photo slide show. Would it be possible to email
me such a list? I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you again making our Hawaii experience even better.
Fun and More Fun! That really describes our entire day
that we spent with your captain and crew at Molokini last
week. The kids loved the water slide so much. Actually,
my husband was acting like a kid that day too and had
his equal share of trips down the slide.
It was so great to see him relax and spend time just playing
and having fun with the kids. It was a real special family
day for us... one that we will cherish and laugh about
for many years to come. Thanks for making it all possible
Jalenski and Family
What a great
service you provide with on-board video. Wow, it was so
great to be able to have video of the kids and my husband
underwater shorkeling. We had so much fun to show it to
my Mum when we returned back to Vancouver... Cheers!
By the way,
Jaime (your videographer) was so absolutely great! Great
