PWF or Aqua?

Hi everyone,

I don't know which one to choose between Pacific Whale Foundation or Aqua Adventure... Read both reviews, but AA only has two reviews, both very good! I know that the PWF goes to both Molokini Turtle Arches & Lanai, does AA go there too? I also know that AA offers Snuba diving and I don't think PWF does. Oh, decisions, decisions... I would like to know your experience & recommendations with those tours. There will be no kids, just hubby & I (early 30s) mid June. Your help is much appreciated so I can finally decide.

We have used Aqua Adventure twice now and couldn't have been happier. In 04 & 06. Aqua does not go to Lanai unless it's something new. And I doubt PWF does both in the same trip. They were separate before because they are in different directions. PWF boats are large, usually 140+ passengers and when people tend to stay close to their boats it makes it a bit crowded. Both times we were on Aqua they anchored as far away from the big boats as possible. They only take a max of 40 passengers. On our last trip we took our boys. My son (11 at the time) and I did the SNUBA. It was an amazing experience. I highly recommend it. We had each of the owners, Mike and Dan as captains and they are great. We also had Anne on both of our trips. I'm willing to bet every boat captain on Maui would kill to have her as a crew member. And all the other crew member we have had on both trips were amazing. I know you have no kids but if you did they would be treated as royalty. Put down my vote for Aqua Adventure.
