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

We were able to see two groups of whales on our tour and it was awesome. Our driver and the naturalist were so knowledgeable and enthusiastic that we all had a really great time!!

We decided to do a whale watch tour on our last day in Maui, this tour did not disappoint. Immediately we were at a mom and calf with two males who were fighting. We witnessed a calf breaching and having a good time. To end we found a group of several males who were fighting. Loved the size of this... More

We took the 6:30am whale watch with Ultimate Tours. Very nice to have a 24 person boat (which they never fill over 18 unless it is chartered) and only 12 people on it. It was a barefoot boat as you left your shoes in the rack by their booth at the head of slip 17. You can see the pontoon... More
