As always, We had an absolute fantastic day whale watching! Couldn’t have asked for better weather, attentive informative guides and a whale experience we’ll never forget! We were blessed with quite the show of active breaching whales! We brought a friend with us to Maui and she is in heaven from the experience. Thank you so much!

We had a great time and the experience was amazing but it was not 15 people on the boat, it was about 50 so that was misleading and the time was wrong on the website so we were an extra half an hour early.We saw a ton of whales and the guides were amazing though.

These guys know their stuff! Amazing views, photos with our entire group were taken with special poses. Really worth the extra for breakfast! All in all worth every penny!!! Very friendly very knowledgeable staff they are just AMAZING!

The pilot was very friendly and knowledge and the staff were all great! We did the Maui/Molokai tour and it was beautiful. From waterfalls to whales, it had it all!

Breathtakingly beautiful! Our pilot, Eddy was marvelous! Great comfortable flight with lots of great info from Eddy - truly enjoyable time.
