Our family of 5 signed up for what we thought was a two-hour dolphin and whale watching tour. Turns out, the hotel had booked us on the five hour snorkeling tour. Fortunately the boat was slightly delayed - just enough time for us to grab some swimsuits. PWF had the rest of the gear we needed. On the way out to the reef we saw several spinner dolphins (what we were there to see). Snorkeling on the reef was good. PWF staff kept an eye on everyone from kayaks and gave us clear instructions on what areas were safe. Once we were back on the boat we were fed lunch (they had vegetarian options). On our way back to Maui we saw several whales, one so close the boat had to cut its engine - what a wonderful sight! A few notes: several people were seasick on the trip back. If there is any chance you (or your kids) might be seasick, take the medication before you leave! If you wait until you feel sick the medicine won't do you any good. Second, wetsuits were not included in the cost. We had to rent them for $10 each, and even then it was only a long-sleeved upper body suit. That was fine for my husband and I, but for the kids it was not enough to keep them warm on the overcast day we went. They also did not have sizes small enough for my 7-year-old, so the suit we rented for her did nothing to keep her warm. Lastly, we rented an underwater camera from the PWF - I was glad they had that option, but the camera was not the best. Pictures from a distance or of fish that blend into the reef did not come out well, but we did get some great shots of bright yellow fish, coral in brighter colors and of the kids in the water. The staff was wonderful. On our trip, Vanessa (the marine biologist) shared information about the fish, whales and dolphins we saw and Amy hosted a question & answer session with the kids. We would take this trip again, only next time we would bring with us better wetsuits for the kids.
