We have been to Maui many times and have gone whale watching on many different boats. This is by far the best experience you can have. Their small fast boat allows them to position you to always see whales up close and personal. Their crews understand how to position the boat for you to get the best views and best photographs. I do a lot of serious photography, and Ultimate Whale Watch was suggested to me by a professional photographer in Hawaii, who uses them exclusively for his work. We had such a great time last Thursday that we signed up for the following Tuesday as soon as we got off the boat ( with a discount for the second trip, I might add). Don't miss this chance of a life time to really enjoy whale watching!!!
