This luxury trip takes takes day long boat trips to an unparalleled level! Outstanding food, service, and comfort. Not overcrowded with plenty of seating, etc. Slightly more expensive than many, but well worth the cost. The scuba diving was a huge plus, and the dive master, Chris, was outstanding. Of our many such trips throughout the Caribbean and Hawaii, incomparably... More

Fantastic trip, weather was perfect in the 80's and sunny. The crew was very courteous and worked hard to keep everyone informed and comfortable on the trip. We saw a lot of turtles at Turtle Point while snorkeling along with whales later on. The food was very healthy, some champagne also made the trip a great memory. Caroline was first... More

Went on the whale watching tour, and it was excellent. Check in was a breeze--on trips I have taken with other companies the check in and boarding can take forever. Not the case here--we basically signed a form and hopped on the boat. Catamaran was great--very large and not overcrowded. Food buffet was really good. Within 10 minutes of leaving... More

Picked up at our condo and transported to the boat. Hot excellent breakfast awaited us. Captain introduced the crew and we were off. The water was too rough for the usual locations so we were sailed to a beautiful calm spot with reefs and sand bottoms. Lots of comfortable room for everyone on the beautiful catamaran. Vessel proved to be... More

We took 2 Alii Nui trips recently. The afternoon whale watch was informative, the food and drink were delicious, and they were very successful in finding fun whales for the passengers to enjoy. The half-day Turtle Point snorkel trip was fabulous! We started with a real, hot breakfast before we left the dock. Along the way we paused to watch... More

We just got back from celebrating our 30 anniversary on the alii nui. The crew made it a memorable experience we will never forget. From the fantastic service to the champagne to the Kelly drinks to the fantastic food we had a wonderful time. To top it all off we saw a bunch of whales. Thank you Captain Morgan and... More

Our visit with the Alii Nui was an absolute great day. The weather had been a little iffy throughout our trip but mostly clear just a few sprinkles, but the crew made everything just great. As we headed out that morning not 10 minutes into the sail the whale action began. They were everywhere, we were able to see a... More
