While doing my research on which tour to take, in emails they told me they had larger boat besides the rafts. NOT and did not book with them when I found out.

Captain ryan and first mate mica made this an unforgettable experience. We had great weather and cooperating seas, so the dive sights were spectacular. Both extremely knowledgeable and fun to talk to. Mica actually dove with us and showed us an octopus! The check in girl was great also!

The captain was very careful not to mention the fact we saw no whales and we didn't eveb get water as promised.... More

We went on the 11 a.m. sailing of the whale watch on the second day of the season. A huge whale watch boat was having trouble and the two ladies manning the boat tried to assist them and assured the tour that they would make up our time (they only took about 10 minutes). They were entertaining and you could... More

Whale watching was one of the best things I've ever experienced! I would love to go back to Maui and do it again.. I highly recomend this company - tehy do a great job. We came in the very beggining of the whale season, but they were making a big effort to find them..luckly, we were able to see 4... More

While staying at Maui Marriott Ocean Club Thanksgiving week 2014, guest service agent, Brittney Martin, referred us to Ultimate Eco Whale Watch and Snorkeling. My husband, our teenage twins, my sister, her husband, their two teenage boys, and I, all agree that this excursion was the "Ultimate" and is a "must-do" on Maui. The captain, Sean, and his first-mate, Christy,... More

We picked this company because it held fewer people. We sent on 12/27/13. It was an amazing experience and the crew was great and very informative. We saw many whales and got great pictures!

An exciting and fun adventure! The crew was great, the captain is friendly, funny and knowledgeable about the area . I took the whole day snorkel trip to Lanaii. This trip is for people who are looking for a small groups with no frills. I am a middle aged grandma who took this trip solo. We went to three fabulous... More

My wife and I have done the snorkeling tour twice over the span of five years (we've never been around for the whale watching tour unfortunately). Both trips were great. Their boat is smaller, so they only take 16 people per trip. Which means you get to really bond with the captain and his asst (swab? first mate? deck hand?).... More

My friend and I decided on this toue because it seemed very inclusive. When we boarded, Captain Ryan and First Mate Becca were very welcoming. On our way to our first snorkel site we were treated to sites of bottle nose dolphins and also of spinner dolphins. Both sites were beautiful, intimate encounters and were not at all rushed. At...
