Had a great time today, saw whales, turtles and dolphins. Capt Joe was a terrific guide, knowledgeable, skilled and engaging. We are repeat customers, and have always had our expectations exceeded with Blue Water. Love the trip to the Kanaio coast and as this is the only company going to this area daily, we consider them the experts.

We had a great morning whale watching with Captain Curtis and crew Kenny of Blue Water Rafting. We were barely on the water when we saw an active juvenile - it breached three times! Then came the competition pod - lots of activity. There were whales all around us, some closer than others, but lots to see and hear. Curtis... More

We always wanted to go explore the Kanaio Caves with Blue Water Rafting, little did we know of how wonderful our experience was going to be. We got Captain Joe and it was like winning the rafting lottery. Not only he was a joy, he was very into showing the region, and all the aspects of our ride were so... More

3rd time with this company. Love the boat, ride and snorkeling. Inflatable boats are the best. Great snorkeling at Molokini. Great crew. Always enjoying going with this company. Will use on the next Maui vacation.

I recently took a visiting friend on a whale watch excursion with Blue Water Rafting, and it was a wonderful experience. The smaller, low-to-the-water raft-type boats they use are really preferable to the larger ones offered by many other companies. The two young men who were our captain and staff were terrific - low key, and very knowledgeable. The fact... More

We had one of our best days in Maui on the Kanaio Coast snorkel. This trip is fantastic! We took another snorkeling trip that was good but this was much better because the boat rides at sea level (vs a bigger multilevel boat). We had two very close whale sightings that were spectacular because we were so low in the... More

I had been whale watching in Boston and the Dominican Republic before, but this trip was far and away the best experience ever. January-March is prime whale season in Maui, and we had such a great time we went twice! Took the 90-minute pontoon boat trip, which is a little bumpier but has fewer people and gives you a better...

Do they really need anymore 5 star reviews? Frequent traveler to Maui (local boy) and this is the best snorkeling trip/ocean adventure I know of. Catamarans and sailing across the bay to Lanai and Molokini are nice but it can't beat the excitement and versatility of the watercraft Blue Water uses. You have cozy groups and the trip is personalized... More

Pretty basic snorkel and Whale watching trip. They take upto a dozen people to Molokini to snorkel and on the way hope to see whales. We saw a bunch of whales. The snorkeling was ok. I thought it would be better. The crew was fun and all about safety first. We had a great time . They had a cooler... More

Blue Water Rafting is an adventure you will be talking about for years. Each time we visit Maui, we make sure to ride the waves, take in the beautiful scenery, and snorkel. Make sure you take in this experience!
