VIP whale watch

We wanted a traditional boat so we chose the VIP tour. We saw a lot of whales close up. We would do it again in a heartbeat. Loved it.

We had an incredible time on the boat today. Whales were plentiful and Captain Erik and Crewman Gabe were both knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. We got into a pair of whales right off the bat that were breaching side by side. Later we also got to see a battle between two males fighting over a female. It was the highlight... More

We were told by a number of people who've been to Maui that Ultimate Whale Watch is the best whale watching tour and a must do. I have to say, it was better than advertised. Our captain, Amy, was great with kids, fun for adults and kept us engaged the entire time. Along with Tiff, we chased whale sightings for... More

This is a must do!!! The best time ever. We went out on the Great White. We were "mugged" by a baby, mama and male escort whales right off the bat. They were underneath the boat.

We went on a tour last week while in Maui on our honeymoon. The tour was awesome. We were able to see numerous groups of whales. The tour guides that we had were fun and knowledgeable. The boat right in itself was a great time, went fast and you were able to see great views of the island from sea.... More

We did two private tours with this group and had Tiffany as our tour captain both times. 6 watchers maximum for each tour! It was worth the extra money as there was never anyone blocking our view. We saw so many whales on both adventures but the second trip although water extremely rough we saw numerous breaches. Tiffany was informative,... More

Ultimate Whale Watch is terrific! Instead of being packed like sardines on a large boat, they use relatively small, very stable and very fast boats and no one has to look over someone else's head to see what's on the water. Speed is very important: Whales may be spotted quite a distance away and if you're on a slower boat,... More

Had a fabulous time on our whale watching tour, despite me and a friend getting seasick (we took precautions!). Friends, my husband and I chartered a VIP tour and so we had our own private trip out to see the whales. Our captain was very knowledgable and skilled and provided us with a lot of information. We came across a... More

we spotted several whales & the captain went over to the area. the engines were stopped & we were watching the whales. Apperantly the whales were interested in our raft & swam closer. They then swam underneath the raft & was checking us out as well. The crew grabbed their cameras & started to take pictures as well.
