“Fantastic day on the water!”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

From start to finish, this was a fantastic excursion. We were on the 5 hour trip which included the siting of countless whales as well as a terrific snorkelling stop. More importantly, the boat is beautifully laid out and modern. The crew, lead by Captain Peter is very professional and courteous. Finally, the food, prepared by professional chefs, is second to none. It beats anything that we had on land in our week in Maui, at a fraction of the price. I would highly recommend this particular excursion. It was one of the highest points of our week.

“Best sunset sail”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

We've gone on a Hula Girl sunset sail three different times. Captain Peter and his staff are excellent. There are two giant lounging pads to enjoy, or you can go up to the captain's deck and check things out. The boat is impeccable and the food is good too. We always like ordering the pot stickers. Worth going a sail with the Hula Girl.

“Wonderful return sail”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

Many years ago, we had such a wonderful experience with this company when they still sailed the Kapalua Kai, that when we looked for a sunset whale watch cruise on our visit this time, we looked no further than Hula Girl Excursions. We were not disappointed on this whale watch sunset cruise (2 hour sail) that left Kaanapaali around 4 pm and returned around 6. Our party ranged in age from 5 (my son) to 67 (my parents) and we all had a wonderful time. The highlight of our sail was seeing a baby calf that was under a week old, who still needed to be nudged out of the water by its mother to breathe. The food was very good and quite reasonably priced, and though I was originally skeptical of spending $60+ for a child for the sail, my son loved the sail so much that I thought the price worthwhile in the end. We spent most of the trip parked on the comfortable trampoline beds.

The catamaran is immaculately kept (my husband commented that the head in the catamaran was more spacious and cleaner than many restrooms he has seen on land), and the crew was professional and informative (Destiny was super sweet and friendly).

We lucked out with the calm weather -- it was like sailing on a lake. Even with 3 people who normally get seasick, we had no issues on this sail.

Look no further if you are interested in a luxury sail -- Hula Girl is top of the line.

“Sunset Whale Watching at its finest!”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

This was our second trip on the Hula Girl and it surely goes on the must do list! This is an immaculate, beautiful catamaran with the friendliest, most skilled crew! Leaving Kaalapali Beach about 4 pm we motored around Lahaina Bay for 2.5 hrs...it would have been enough just to do that but add the fine skills of the Captain keeping us in view of amazing whale activity, the amazing and tasty apps and drinks served up from the galley...the only ship in the bay with such an offering I think...and the complete sense of comfort and safety experienced and you've got one of the best activities to enjoy on Maui. We love the Hula Girl and you will too!

“Dinner whale watch wonderful trip”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

We went on the deluxe dinner whale watch. The catamaran is a beautiful boat. Very luxurious and well run. They don't load the boat with too many people so it is very comfortable and spacious. The price does not include any food or drinks. There are chefs on board who prepare food to order. We had a couple of appetizers and the fresh fish special which were all excellent. The prices are very reasonable as well. The crew was very professional and helpful. I would highly red come d this trip to anyone who is willing to pay a bit more for an very high class boat with wonderful food.
