What I learned about whale watching in Maui is that it perhaps doesn't matter that much which outfit you go with...so long as they offer a raft type vessel. We were booked with Pacific Whale Foundation, but they cancelled on us, so we walked over to the pier and booked for a 10 AM cruise with Slip 8. They were... More

Great tour and hosts. We were so close to the dolphins and saw multiple whales breach. Being on this type of boat was a wild but enjoyable experience.

Fantastic outing. The guides were fun and extremely knowledgeable about whales. The raft makes the trip more enjoyable since you feel closer to the whales.

I've been on many whale watches in Maui, but never on a small Zodiac boat like this one. While I am all for the Pacific Whale Foundation and their larger rides, this place will be my first choice from now on. The views are indescribable. If you're a bit of a landlubber, you might want to stick with the larger... More

We took the 2 hour whale watching tour. To start off, our boat could fit 16, but it ended up there was only 8 of us so we had plenty of room to move about. We saw lots of mother, babies and escorts swimming all around us and very close to the boat. The guide and assistant gave us a... More

We went out with Ray, Lacy and Georgie and they were great ...they did a better job serving us than most restaurants we when to....they made you feel very comfortable and was wiling to take group photos for us...when we saw whales Ray made sure the boat was in a position where everyone could see them.
