We opted for the Molokini eco express (3-hr trip) instead of the longer options but it was awesome trip nonetheless. My husband has motion sickness and we we're not sure how he would take a longer trip . The staff were very professional and knowledgeable. They stay on the water to make sure everybody was comfortable with the water. The... More

We had the opportunity to enjoy both a Sunset Cocktail Cruise and a Sunset Dinner Cruise with Pacific Whale Foundation. Free parking is located at the corner of Front Street and Prison Street in Lahaina. The Pacific Whale Foundation shop is a short walk up Front Street. This is where you check in for the cruise. You are given a... More

After looking at many options for snorkel/boat trips, we decided on the PWF snorkel and dolphin watch trip to Lanai. It was 8:00-1:00. Our boat could hold 110 but only had 75 that day so it was more spacious. We decided to join the PWF and get the discount for the trip and VIP seating; we felt it was worth... More

The molokini express snorkel cruise was a wonderfull experience. This was my first time snorkel with Pacific Whale and they were very kind, informative and made all of us feel safe. The lunch on the way back was good too! The fruit punch is a must. Sooo good, wish I could have take some home with me. My only issue... More

There are not enough superlatives to describe our experience with PWF. Many thanks to Capt. John and shipmates Jackie & Vanessa. It was my first time EVER snorkeling. The fish were amazing. There should be no other company you choose for your snorkeling adventure. Best of all, PWF is non-profit. All proceeds go to research and education.

In Maui for high school graduation present. Went on snorkel trip on the ocean spirit for a morning trip. Crew was great and helpful. equipment was great and had a wonderful experience. Would recommend them if you want a small group and individual attention. Well worth the $$$$ spent.

The staff was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and full of energy. Really enjoyed this trip - on a big boat and nice chairs in galley/ plenty of seats above. I even liked how they went around and handed out food to each passenger rather than having the free for all for breakfast. I went on Pride of Maui last Tuesday to... More

we went as a big group and they were very accommodating to our children. the announcer was fun and gave a lot of information about the whales. He knew when to/ and where to look out for the whales. And with a little luck, we watched for a few minutes and then we saw it.!!!! Breach!!!!!!

I took the Molokini / Turtle Arches trip with two girlfiends in February - during whale season and it was unbelievable. The check in at Lahaina was very efficient and quick. The orientation before we boarded was comprehensive. We walked about 5 minutes, across a street, and into the harbor to catch our boat. There were a lot of people,... More

My husband, 10 year old daughter and I enjoyed our dinner cruise. The double catamaran was nice and rather stable in the water. The fireworks were AMAZING. The food wad good, but nothing great. All of the employees were GREAT.
