My family and I came to Maui and wanted to do something none of us had done before. We found Pride of Maui online and found it to be the best of our options, considering it had whale watching and snorkeling. While we were waiting in line, ready to board the boat, the captain came out and told us that the winds were too strong and we probably wouldn't see any whales. We really appreciated their honesty, and they gave us the option of changing our reservation to later in the week. We decided to come back a few days later, thinking we he nothing to loose if we did. I'm so glad we made that option! This was an amazing experience and my whole family loved it. My kids opted to SNUBA instead of snorkel (which has an additional fee) and my teenagers said that it was the best experience of their life! We saw over 10 sea turtles and hundreds of species of wildlife! The staff was incredible and we saw many whales up close and five of them breached. The food they provide was good and perfect for every family. On board their was eighty-year-olds, and babies. The staff were very professional and great with kids as well as adults. We definitely got our money's worth!
