Very nice vessel set up to view whales, the addition of the hydrophone to hear the whales was a big plus. The crew was super knowledgeable and service was outstanding as were the included drinks. You will likely be inspired to offer a donation to...More

If you visit Maui in winter there's NO WAY you will not see a whale, as long as you occasionally glance at the water. Make sure to take the 2-hour raft toir with Captain Steve. Small boat, only a few people And you are at...More
