The staff were very knowledgable and friendly. They positioned the boat so we saw many wales The boat was a good size so there weren't too many people. They provided drinks and snacks. It was the highlight of my trip.

Best whale watching trip I have ever been on. Boat was just the right size. Crew was outstanding, and Captain was exceptional. Saw lots of whales, especially a mother and new calf who were watching us as much as we watched them. Don't miss out on this trip.

Just got back from an 11 AM whale watching tour with Capt. Casey and the crew. It was a wonderful time. The boat is a rigid hull inflatable (20 people maximum) with a shaded deck as well as space at the back to climb up top so you can get a 360 degree view if you wish. You are allowed... More

Just did the 2 hour tour for whale watch. It is amazing how they find the whales and yet respect the distance that is required. The crew was awesome and kind. Always checking in with everyone making sure we were all good. Drinks and snacks were also provided. We saw whales doing all kinds of behaviors. The crew was able... More

Spent 2 hours on the 11am tour. This was my 1st whale watch experience & I think we we were so lucky to have seen so many whales. At one point they were on both sides of the boat and out to the front as well - you didn't know where to look! The crew were great and the delicious... More

I did a lot of research on which whale tour to do and decided on Adventure X. We had an awesome tour and were thoroughly pleased with the reults. A great day for whale watching with a crew that really knew their stuff. Excellent snacks too! We saw MANY whales and I was finally able to get a decent breach... More

We took a two-hour Whale Watching trip through Adventure X today (29 December 2014). Even though it was early in the season, the team was able to get close to a number of whales. The team was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions and more. In addition, the food was fantastic (it was a sunset tour). I can't... More

Great time with Captain Casey and crew. 12-22-14 saw lots of whales and swam with the dolphins. Captain Casey and crew go out of their way to make sure you have a memorable trip. We will be doing the whale watching trip with them in 2 days and we cannot wait. I highly recommend Adventure X Boat Tours.

We set out in the morning near Puako for a 3+ hour with Adventure X Boat Tours, and loved every minute. The captain knows just where to go to find spinner dolphins, sea turtles and great snorkeling reefs. We actually got to swim in the midst of a large pod of wild spinner dolphins (after being advised how to interact... More
