My husband and I are planning to go on a whale watch when in Maui. I need to make the reservations, but am not sure of timing. He is a pro photographer and plans to take his equipment with him. We plan on going w/ Pacific Whale Foundation out of Lahaina Harbor, but are not sure if we should book the 7:00 AM departure on the Ocean Explorer or the 8:00 AM departure on the Ocean Quest.
Any comments on either boat (size crew, etc)? Or comments on how crowded one departure time versus another would be?
Thanks again for your time,
