What a great day! Our Captain was an outstanding pilot - doing a great job in a moderate sea of avoiding excessive chop. He found 2 different groups of dolphins to observe as well. Despite the less than ideal sea conditions, we found 3 very nice snorkeling spots that were calm and full of coral and sea life. The first... More

We went on Ultimate twice this last February during whale season. We had a great time and we really liked the smaller raft size. We went on two other companies who also use rafts but the larger ones. Both were good also but we preferred the ones Ultimate uses. Hoping to give them a try for a Lanai snorkel trip... More

Since we visited Maui at the end of April, it was the end of whale season and it was unsure that we would see whales. Well we did see several mothers and calves, and even saw a couple of whales breeching in the distance. A mother and calf swam right under our boat which we were all able to see... More

Had a great trip! Could not have asked for a better crew. Both ladies knew their stuff about whales and got us on a whale almost right away. Would recommend this company to anyone! Great experience and will do it again.

Tiffany and Amy were beyond amazing. Whale season is pretty much over but they found us some humpback whales breaching and a whole bunch of dolphins. An added bonus to this already awesome snorkle trip. If you only do one thing in maui do this! Small group size and great captains! Favorite thing in maui

We thoroughly enjoyed our whale watching excursion two weeks ago. We saw a whale breech and a mama with her calf swim under our catamaran. Our captain was amazing and was aggressive about getting to where the whales were and making sure we had an awesome experience. It was so great, that my husband went again (while I shopped with...

I took too long to write this so whale season may be just about over in Maui but we did this the first day we were in Maui and then did it 2 more times. We may have done it at least once more but they were mostly sold out and we had other tours etc planned. The idea of... More

We arrived in Lahaina via Princess Cruises, this was a tender port so getting off the ship in a timely fashion was not a simple task, Ultimate was very gracious in accommodating our scheduling issues and we were able to make the 8:00 AM tour. Even though we were a little late in the season, our guide / pilot and... More
