The PacWhale snorkel trip was amazing. They provided everything you could need. It was our first time, and we had so much fun we are definitely going to snorkel again. They fed us a nice breakfast, told us all about Maui and the marine wildlife, didn't push us to donate but educated us on what their passion is, then fed us lunch before the ride back. The snorkel spots were perfect. We saw dolphins, turtles, eels, starfish, octopus, and an incredible variety of coral. I can't say enough good things about this tour.

We enjoyed our dinner cruise on the water - loved seeing the horizon and the sunset. Food was good, vegan option also was offered.

We just got back from Maui, and a highlight was going to Molokini with the Pacific Whale Foundation crew. They did such a great job. Very organized. The perfect amount of time for snorkeling at Molokini and Turtle Town. Really nice to know the funds are going to support their conservation work too.

The crew was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the snorkeling location had very few fish which was disappointing.

Had a blast! Really cool snorkeling locations, tons of sea life! Great captain and crew with good food and drinks… would definitely do this experience again in the future. Just remember “reef friendly” sunscreen is still not “reef safe.” wear sunscreen with the only ingredient of non-nano zinc oxide. That’s very important to remember!!
