First I was worried because my 6 year old got sick on a previous boat while we were in Kauai but she did very well... More

We went on a whale watching cruise with Maui Adventure cruises, and it was one of the best cruise we ever did. The staff was great, they knew what they were talking about and they were very enthusiastic! We saw so many whales, and it make such a difference to be on a small raft instead of a big boat....

Had an excellent time, Captain Kim was amazing and Andrea was also awesome and very knowledgeable on the whales. We would highly recommend going out on their boats as you feel so close to the water and the whales. We watched a calf play for over an hour, it was so memorable.

This was by far the best whale watching tour we've ever had, and we've been on 6. Capt Carl did an awesome job putting us next to an active, large pod... twice!! And Andrea was the most knowledgeable person on whales we've ever met. (Doesn't hurt that she's a whale biologist). Highly recommend Maui Adventure Cruises if you're looking for... More

Carl and Andrea were great! We went at the 1230 pm tour on a very rainy day! It didn't stop our trip! We saw awesome whale pods and learned a lot about their behaviors. They offered beverages on the way back! What a great time!

We have gone whale watching with this company several times over the years. If possible book a trip that Jill is the captain on. Jill has always delivered a very good experience, some of the captains find a mother and cold and follow them the entire time...not Jill, if the whales aren't doing much, she keeps looking. In 2012 we... More

I always appreciate an enthusiastic crew who engages with their guests. These guys delivered, and were excited about showing us as many whales as possible, even though they see them every day. They were knowledgeable, entertaining, and accommodating. The captain received word from another boat about a rare sighting, Rough Toothed Dolphins, so they hauled over to the sight as... More

This was my husband's and my first time whale watching in Hawaii, we were told to go on the smaller boats. We loved our first whale watch so much that we went two more times while we were there. We would have gone more, but did not do this to start with so next time we will do this more... More
