I live on Maui, but I'm trying to experience new things. I was excited when I saw this trip. Check-in via IPads and boarding were very easy. On the boat, each group was spread out per Covid protocol, but there was plenty of room. As we got out of the harbor, they passed out a choice of Maui beer or Mai Tais. Finger food came next and they even honored my request for vegetarian food. Harriet our astronomer was very knowledgeable. Before her presentation, she talked individually to each group to see if they have anything in particular that we wanted to know. As the sky darkened, she told us all about the night sky. We were lucky to see Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars. It was a windy night, but once we were out in the bay, the boat felt very calm. Definitely a great trip to take during your stay on Maui.

My mother, daughter and I did two trips with the PacWhale group. One to Lanai to snorkel and watch the dolphins play and the 2nd was a Whale watching trip. I was very pleased with the way in which they separated everyone from each other with enough distance, they sprayed everything down every few minutes in common areas AND they pre-packaged food and plates so no one had to get up from their assigned seating. In heightened times, we felt good about these trips and the staff was very pleasant and accomodating. They also had wonderful crew members who really explained the marine life with such enthusiasm. We had a wonderful trip both times. I felt comfortable snorkeling out at Lanai because they were surrounding us and making sure of our safety too. GREAT TRIPS! I would book with them again!
