Watching the sunset with the whales
Great experience from an excellent crew for our sunset cruise. The crew checked in on us multiple times to ensure we had a beverage in hand and were enjoying the ride. Throughout the cruise the crew pointed out several humpback whales. We saw several of the baby (calf) breaches too. They positioned the boat so you could get an amazing view of the sunset. They even were able to get a great photo of my wife and I while observing all Covid protocols.

We know that the decision to participate in activities right now is challenging, and we're honored you chose to spend part of your day with us, and that you felt safe while on board. We hope we'll get to share more adventures with you again (though we can't promise breaching baby humpbacks)! Mahalo

Great trip! Saw lots of whales; some very close to the boat. The crew was excellent. They were very attentive and personable and made you feel like they wanted you to have a good time. A must tour if you're in the area.

Best Part of the Vacation!!
Apr 2019 • Couples
What an amazing experience! This was by far the most memorable part of my trip to the big island and I would definitely book this again next time I'm here. Our crew was fabulous - funny, informative & made some great drinks. Answered all of our questions with such enthusiasm it was so nice to see them just as excited as we were to be there. We were lucky enough to see some momma and baby whales even though it was at the end of whale watching season and of course the sunset was stunning! This definitely exceeded our expectations and I highly recommend booking with Ocean Sports for an unforgettable Hawaiian sunset.
