The concierge at the Ritz booked this excursion for us. We were here for a family vacation with the inlaws (70 and 68), our two kids (11 and 17) and my husband and I. We wanted to do some snorkeling and tubing. We did a four hour charter with Ryan. Ryan was amazing!! Very friendly, extremely knowledgeable and just a great guy. The inlaws stayed in the boat while we did our activities and they still had a lovely time chatting with Ryan as he told them about the islands. He even took us to several snorkeling spots to ensure we saw a sea turtle, which was a request by our daughter. He was great with the kids on tubing as well going as fast or as slow as they felt comfortable with. Honestly, we could have stayed out there a few more hours it was so much fun and relaxing. Plus, there was enough shade if needed and the front part of the boat was great to sunbathe on. Ryan anticipated all our needs and it was simply a wonderful experience. Our only regret is not having enough time to go out again with Ryan. A must if you are visiting!

We did a private tour with Captain Ryan in June 2017. We had a family of six 3 adults, 2 teens, and an 11 year old). This was one of our children's favorite activities. Captain Ryan is very patient with kids. The water was choppy so we could not do wake boarding, but we did go tubing and then snorkeling.

This was our big finale, after many family trips to Maui and after several happy days on island. Honestly: wish we had found Wake Maui on the first day of our first Maui trip years ago. Ryan is so fantastic as teacher, tour guide, taking full and great care of all of us. Any ages, any ability level: go with this man out on the water, any time of year, and you will all be very happy you did-- it's that great!

Last year we wake boarded with Ryan and we had so much fun that we returned this year. Ryan is a great teacher, so patient and it is important to him that you have a fun experience. This year, Ryan taught us how to wake surf and it was a blast. This event was the best part of our vacation and I highly recommend it!
