Best experience ever. Great crew, great cause (profits go back to marine preservation), they use biodegradable cups, fantastic knowledge of marine life and Maui history, free lessons on board both educational and for snorkeling first timers. Food was great. I seriously couldn't pick one thing I didn't like. We did 3 tours with different companys and this was the best... More

We decided to book a cruise with PWF to go to Lahaina to watch the fireworks. We arrived at PWF early as instructed. It was somewhat hectic because there were at least three other boats checking people in and getting ready to leave from PWF. Our cruise had approximately 60 people on it. We were disappointed when we walked up... More

Took the morning trip with breakfast and lunch . Nice trip saw dolphins and anchored up in a little bay to snorkle .Expected to see more marine life when snorkling but maybe we were on a off day and that nature. Good service and well looked after.Very informative.

We took the sunrise whale watching tour and it was wonderful. Fun time watching, hearing and knowing about the humpbacks. They are a non-profit org and their prices are on the lower side, so we can help them in any small way that we can.

We took a morning dolphin excursion. The staff was very friendly and shared knowledge about the area and dolphins. We even stopped to pull trash from the ocean. We had never seen that many dolphins at one time and it was incredible how close the dolphins came to the boat. Would recommend this trip.

Pacific whale foundation had a store with good quality merchandise. By purchasing your souvenirs and gifts here you help support whales and whale research.

Awesome- Capt Ben and Sharon were great! 3 fantastic snorkeling sites with TONS of fish and 5 different dolphin encounters (as luck would have it). They were right next to us frolicking as we traveled, putting on a great show. We'll definitely do it again!

It is the wrong time of year for whales, but we saw 2 different types of dolphins, flying fish and more. The rest of my party said that the snorkeling was great. The food was good. The staff was the best, very knowledgeable and friendly.

We boarded the "Quest" ship and the entire staff was so welcoming, right from the start. Our seating was up top and front and the view was spectacular. Our dinner was made with fresh, local ingredients and was delicious. It was a beautiful and relaxing evening to end our wonderful Maui vacation.
