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!

The guys on here were great. The whale watch was amazing & we got to snorkel & eat while on board. They had free beer and drinks and fed us burgers and cookies! Fun atmosphere!

We registered online and received a discount. We had a great time! The staff were excellent, the snorkeling was great fun. Very clear water with lots of fish and even sea turtles. We saw some great whales up close. The burgers were large and tasty. We thought this was a great experience for the price!

Staff were great and professional. Decent value for money. Nice boat. Good food and free alcoholic drinks. Saw sea turtles.

But like previous reviews, due to poor weather we were not able to visit the advertised sites (missed out on molokini) and was only told when we were already on the water. Appreciate weather is out of their control but an option to choose another date would be ideal. Can't help thinking we would have seen more if the weather was better.

The dinner cruise at $60/person is a good bargain. The cruise includes entertainment, food and an open bar. In addition got to watch whales and photograph a gorgeous sunset. The food consisted of cheese and crackers followed by a buffet of teriyaki chicken, ribs, shrimp, fruit and desserts. It was typical buffet food, decent but not great. The open bar was, well, great. The entertainment was provided by a guitar player/singer who was good and the sound wasn't obtrusive.

The crew provided great service. The boat is a 2-level catamaran that holds over 100. We were fortunate that there were only about 50 passengers aboard. As a word of caution, while a larger number of people would not be problematic for the cruise, I'm less certain about the parking as there is limited parking proximate to the loading area. There is ample parking at the nearby Aquarium but the walk might be problematic for older folks and those with disabilities.

All in all, a great time at a great value!!
