We went on the Lanai Snorkel and Dolphin Watch trip from Lahaina. We booked from Pacific Whale primarily because of their policy that all profits go to conservation and education, unlike most of the for-profit snorkeling trip outfits in Maui. The crew were cheerful and knowledgeable and we boarded a fairly large catamaran for our trip to Lanai. However, there... More

If I could only isolate the tour itself this would easily get a 4-star rating; we got to see a big pack of dolphins and the snorkeling at Lana'i was really great (coming from a rather experienced SCUBA/free diver). So, why the 3 star? Just about to go into the water, the crew members began this speech about why we... More

Second trip with Pacific Whale Foundation and hope it is not the last! Fantastic crew and comfortable boat was a glorious way to spend the day. This snorkeling trip to Lanai is quite a long boat ride, but the location was recommended by a local dive shop owner. There were over 90 aboard the catamaran, but there is plenty of... More

My husband and I did the Molokini and Turtle Town tour with Pacific Whalr Foundation while on Honeymoon. It was fantastic. It was a very early start (made it harder as we were staying 45minutes drive away from the port) so we had to leave our resort at 5.30am to be there for the 6.15am check in. It was ran... More

Such a relaxing trip. Guides are very informative. This is a great foundation. Donate. Must save nature, habitats, animals. Highest recommendation for this event.

We went out on a Dolphin Watching tour. The boat ride was great, albeit crazy rocky at times, and the water was enchanting. Our tour was for three hours and after more than an hour on the water we began to think the few flying fish we'd seen would be our only encounter. Then it happened!! I and another tourist... More

We went on a snorkel trip with this crew, it was awesome! The crew was so friendly and helpful and nice. The food they served was very good. Its a 5 hr. trip to two different areas. We saw sea turtles, it was amazing. So glad we did it. It was a trip to remember.

We went on the snorkeling trip around Lanai and had a blast! The different reefs were extremely cool and the views of Lanai were gorgeous. The captain and his assistant were spectacular and made the trip go from being "good" to "fantastic". They were knowledgeable no only about the sea and the creatures that live in it but also the...

Had THE MOST delightful day with the 5-Star Crew aboard PWF today!!! Was overwhelmed with the high quality, personal service aboard this vessel & the Hawaiian hospitality & Aloha shown to each & every guest! The vessel was extremely clean & well laid out; including the on-board restrooms. The 90-minute snorkeling around the point at the lighthouse @ Lana'i was... More
