Excellent tour

Took the Molokini Express / Whale Watching tour on Monday Feb 23rd. Snorkeling gear was great, Molokini was fantastic, and the whale watching was top notch. Highly recommended.

Our raft trip today was so awesome. From the crazy boat ride to kanaio coast to snorkeling at 3 private locations, every moment was exciting. The grand finale was the chance to hang out with a pod of elegant, sleek spinner dolphins. So nice of them to let us humans share their cove.I was swimming within 5 feet of 25... More

Outstanding whale watching. One of the best attractions I have been on. We were fortunate to watch a competition pod of up to 7 males for several hours with all types of behaviors exhibited. Breeching, spy hops, tail slaps, head slaps, pectoral fin slaps and whales jumping and bumping on top of each other. Several times as we were just... More

We have taken Blue Water Rafting on whale watching trips several times over the past couple of years and each trip is great fun. We always see whales and each of the crew, particularly Josh and Teddy, are informative and have a good sense of humor. If visiting Wailea during whale season, this is the company to use.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Molokini express with Aaron and Will on Sunday feb 22.... They were fun, relaxed and very knowledgable. They ensured we had a successful trip despite the short duration!!! Will definitely look them up again!

We went out 10 am on Feb 24. I can't recall Captain and his first mates name…great day to see whale. Nice calm seas…everything was explained well for safety purposes. We went out and we we're very fortunate to have some AMZINGLY close sightings with several humpbacks. They sit the boat off at one point as we had a pod... More

We recently were in Maui and booked a whale watching trip with Blue Water Rafting. We had gone out with the same company a couple of years ago and it was fantastic. This time it was not so great. The total trip time has been shortened to only 1.5 hours. The crew seemed to be afraid to get us anywhere... More

All the other tours cancelled but not ours. There were 3 couples on this trip. Too bad the seas were between 4 - 6 ft and there was a wall of men blocking my view. I could not move due to I almost slipped once and fell in. I ended up not seeing a whale and being sea sick. Go... More

This was a real disappointment. The raft was too small to accommodate the number of customers - there wasn't room enough to move around to see the whales on the other side of the raft. All seats were occupied and people were sitting on the tubes all around. They had trouble keeping one of the engines running and all we... More

Josh and his partner on our tour were great. The wind was challenging and they handled the raft very well. Kudos to these guys. We are a return customer like 6 times.
