Alsp nice that the... More

I loved going out in the smaller white water raft. It was comfortable and so easy to see everything around us. The captain was great...he knew where to go and provided us with an awesome trip.

We enjoyed our February 2017 whale watching excursion. My only comments are that the boat driver and tour host didn't seem super enthusiastic. I understand they run these tours multiple times a day, but it really didn't seem too exciting to them, there wasn't really an effort to get to know the guests etc, talk about the whales (unless there...

I used to live in Hawaii and worked on a snorkel tour boat on the Big Island. I grew up on boats and in the ocean. We are also river rafters and are used to bouncing around on water. I've also been on similar raft dolphin tours off Oahu's Waianae Coast. I know Hawaii's "weather" and was hoping it would... More

We just came back home after 10 days in the islands and all my wife can talk about is the great time we had with our Blue Water Rafting Whale Watching/Snorkel trip! Our boat Captain Curtis was honest right from the start. He said that this would be an adventure tour for all the reasons an adventure tour could be... More

Ok, if you're not sure what to do in Maui and love Whales, Dolphins,caves, and the best snorkelling.....you have to do the Blue Water Rafting tour!! Captain Teddy( awesome and very cute!) and his co captain, Vanny were amazing and so accomodating! We will do this tour again, in the future and have told our friends to do the same!!

We went whale watching with Blue Water Rafting. Teddy and Aerial (sp?) were great. Teddy has a sense of humor, yet is very clear on the rules. Very polite and respectful. Only approx 20 people on board, so super easy to see the whales and they "enforce" (super nicely) the "stadium seating" concept so everyone can see. The best is... More
