Very friendly staff. Took the early breakfast tour. Saw a couple whales from a distance. The food was pretty good. The view of Hololulu and Diamond Head was spectacular.

A lot of surprises. We saw sea turtles and humpback whales breaching. The Flying fish were awesome too. What an adventure miss being on the ocean. A must to do when on Oahu.

We did the breakfast buffet whale watching cruise. The boat is comfortable, and easy to navigate. The breakfast buffet was above average - and the whale commentary was good. We saw a couple of humpbacks, at distance - the boat can't go within 100ft of the whales, although can stop and let the whales come closer. Should have brought our... More

Very good staff! The food was a 7 out of 10. They put on a great show, it was a nice break for the wife and I from the kids. We didn't get to see any whales but did get a great sunset to look at!
