Alii Nui is unmatched. The captain and crew are clearly passionate about their work and provide an unparalleled experience for their guests. From the moment we were picked up at our hotel, the hospitality from this crew was exceptional. The boat is very nice. It feels much more like a private yacht than a tourist machine. Food, wine and service were exceptional, and the snorkeling was fantastic. We've snorkeled with another provider on Maui, but it did not compare to our time aboard the Alii Nui!

Bring extra layer as conditions on water can get windy and cold. But they do provide blankets! We saw a Mama whale and calf. Captain provided info on whales that was entertaining and interesting.

We had an incredible time with Alii Nui. Great crew, friendly fun and knowledgeable. We learned a lot about humpback whales. The captain and his crew provided a wonderful experience and we will return. If you’re prone to sea sickness, try one of their homemade ginger ales. Can’t wait for our next adventure with Alii Nui!

We took our family on a holiday to Maui and decided to do the whale watching tour. Best decision. Such a gorgeous catamaran and the food and beverages were fantastic. We all enjoyed it and look forward to doing it again in the future. Highly recommend it.

This was so much fun, and everyone working on the ship was extremely helpful! Our group of four ranged in age from 55 to 7, And they were great! The food was also excellent! We can’t say enough good about this experience.
