Great catamaran and lovely crew. Very welcoming and friendly service. Unfortunately we didn’t see ant whales as it was end of the season mid April and they had moved to Maui! But the trip itself was lovely to see the coastline and we were provided with a free cruise redeemable anytime in the future or could swap it for another trip or cruise to same value.

The weather wasn’t very cooperative (rainy, windy, lots of large waves) and we understand that wasn’t their fault but it made for a very tough experience. The guides were very friendly, kind, and wanted everyone to have a good experience however, and kept checking in with everyone. The music was a bit loud.

We got to go twice because the first time we went we didn’t get to see any whales up close, we did get to see a turtle and dolphins who were doing tricks, the second time we got to see dolphins and a whale and it’s baby, the staff were also great on both trips
