Ms. Eve was great! Extremely knowledgeable of marine life, and cultural Hawaiian historical meaning of ocean life to the people connection with marine ecosystem.

Great experience with a knowledgeable team. We got luck-saw dolphins, whales, and sea turtles. I know not everyone gets this chance but it was awesome.

Great trip! The crew were all amazing and did a great job. The boat was comfortable and provided room for all aboard.

Wide Open eyes when you are on board since the whales are on the surface only a second before they dive down again.

Fantastic tour our captains were so engaged and loved the animals and their jobs
