The raft is definitely the way to go when whale watching. The whales are more curious with the rafts. Stephanie got us to a place where the whales came right up to the raft. One picked his head up out of the water to get a look at us. We have been in other whale watched and this was the... More

Saw whales up close as the whales came to check us out. One swam under the boat and came up 10 feet away from us, stuck his head out of the water, and looked us over. Saw others doing repeated fin slaps and saw mother and baby with baby breaching repeatedly. So much fun and so, so cool. People hung... More

Really enjoyed the raft experience with small tour, 12 people. Captain Stephanie was skilled and crew, Sean, very knowledgable about the whales,

Jake and Sammi gave us a SUPERB whale watching trip this morning. The whales were awesome and Jake and Sammi were friendly, helpful and entertaining without drowning us in whale facts. An all-around great trip!

We wanted a smaller, faster boat that allowed a more intimate whale watching experience. We saw several boats that were huge, packed with people in 100% sun and looked miserable. The boat we were on was a hard bottom raft that had top speeds of around 35mph. They only had 16 ppl on it (which they consider full). The ride... More

Our crew, Capt. Steph and Sean went out of their way to make this an unforgettable ocean trip. We did the half day snorkel to Lana'i. The snorkeling was very good (eagle Rays, turtles, octopus, many tropical fish). But the whale watching and spinner dolphin encounter really made the trip special for us. We encountered a pod of about 100+... More

Did the 1/2 day snorkel trip to Lanai with Stephanie and Sean today. It was my 3rd boat trip this week, and by far the best. Not only did I snorkel with eagle rays, turtles, octopus and lobster, but I got to spend quality time with both dolphins and whales! It doesn't get much better than this! S+S were great... More

We went on the watch on Mon. Jan 4th with a group of tourists from Japan. It was incredible! We saw a baby, mom and their "escort" jumping, splashing, and swimming right under our boat. Our guides gave my kids masks and held their feet while they looked in the water. I have just put my Maui pictures on FB... More

My girlfriend Katie and I, along with another couple (The Grubers) were passengers on the Hawaii Ocean Rafting vessel Saturday afternoon Jan 17th, 2015 which was captained by Stephanie and crewed by Sean. We were visiting Maui from our home in Laguna Beach, CA, which is well known for its own whale watching opportunities. For an hour, in the channel... More

We have been on both of their boats and the slow boat has a lot of fumes so if the boat is full the people in the back can not get away from them. Our suggestion is fewer people on that boat. If we go out with them again we will be sure to ask which boat we are going... More
