Frogman Whale Watch

Attraction details
Owner description: Frogman II, 55Ft Power Catamaran (66 passenger capacity)You're Guaranteed to See Humpback Whales! Each year, Humback whales migrate down to our warm Maui waters in order to mate and give birth. During our winter months, these huge whales breach out of the water as well as many other fascinating behaviors. We are so certain that you'll see whales while on one of our tours, that we'll let you go again for FREE if you don't! You'll have great photo opportunities on our stable catamaran & expert narration by our fun Captains & crew! Come join us on one of the best Maui activities available

We went out with Frogman twice. The first time, we were switched to the Quicksilver and had plenty of room to move around and saw lots of whales and got pretty close, which is why we booked a second trip. That time we went out on the Frogman II, and were disappointed. It was very crowded, couldn't see much and didn't get very close to the whales. We previously had gone out on a smaller raft type vessel with another company and loved that. Will probably go back to that next time.

Great time on the vessel sighting whales, but company told us to park in the aquarium parking lot. That's when the nightmare started. We got back to our car after the trip and found that our stuff in the trunk was gone. There was no sign of forced entry. Police and others say it happens all the time. Go other places that are safer.

Overall, I felt that the boat was over crowded, you couldn't hear the naturalist talk, and we didn't get all that close to whales breaching. We did see some whales surfacing and raising their fluke with in 100 yards or so, but everything else was far away. I went out of Maalaea harbor, but wished I had gone out of Lahaina since half of our boat ride was just getting out to the more common whale territory which is near Lahaina. I also feel that the catamaran isn't the best style of boat to use for a whale watch tour and a two story boat like the Pacific Whale Foundations' would be better suited for this activity.

We booked the 2 for 1 (children free) deal for a two hours whale watch cruise, great deal. The ride was cool, the whales were amazing although we weren't that close to them. The day prior to the cruise I pulled over side of the road and saw a whole lot more whales from shoreline so I expected to experience them up and close once I'm on a boat, was a bit disappointed with my own expectation. Here are a few negatives.

1. like any other too good to be true deal on Maui, they usually come with a "timeshares" sales pitch.

2. the crew and the naturalist were friendly and awesome, but fellow American tourists weren't too pleasant.
