Although we only saw a couple of whales we enjoyed the three hour catamaran trip on the water. The crew was friendly and very accomodating. Snacks weren't much but they kept the alcohol flowing fro those that drank. Very relaxing.

Had a good time on board, unlimited snacks and drinks including cocktails. Great service they even bring drinks to you whilst watching. Saw a few whales two quite up close, no breaches unfortunately which can't be helped but my wife did see one in the distance whilst we were at lava lava beach club. Was nice to hear the whales as well when microphone dropped in water and learnt a lot about them too. Service was excellent from the barman, cannot remember the name.

We had a lovely time! The crew was fantastic, they were so thoughtful and knowledgeable and added to the overall experience. We were able to see turtles, a couple whales and a pod of dolphins within 20 minutes of the harbor.

Took this great whale watching tour out of A Bay, on the beach behind the Marriott. Nice catermeran, friendly knowledgeable crew. Alas, the whales kept their distance, but we did see a lot of breaches within visual range. Snow covered Mauna Kea as a back drop. Beautiful, relaxing morning. Lots of fun !
