What people are saying about Lahaina

I am so glad we picked this particular cruise. From the beginning to the end the staff was amazing. Such friendly and helpful people clearly loving what they do. The captain was so incredible and had an amzing personality. He was so funny and very knowledgeable about the whole experience. He seemed so humble and happy and was a joy to boat with. We had the best seat in the house on the front top deck. The ride was gentle and never felt sea sick. I had the vegetarian option and very thankful that was offered. The drinks are strong and delicious. I loved that this was 3 hours which was plenty and then you have the rest of the day to do whatever floats your boat. I appreciated the mid day start time so we could sleep in and take our time getting to the location. Parking was easy and a short walk to the meeting spot. Would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a great experience!

Great snorkeling and whale watching trip. Saw turtles, several types of fish in different colors, and most exciting of all, the whales. Staff were very nice and helpful - thank you crews!!! Ended the trip with great memories.

Amazon experience kudos to captain for his knowledge ( he grew up here ) no pun intended . Be careful about the parking I got a $50 ticket on the warf

Es war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis, die Wale zu sehen. Der Guide und die Crew ist sehr freundlich und der Preis finde ich sehr fair.

Came January 1st and saw lots of whales! Great boat team too.
