Making wonderful memories!!

Would highly recommend this whale watching experience for an up close water level view of the whales. Our guides were excellent and felt safe in the windy Maui weather. Our kids age 12 and 8 made memories that will last a life time. We had a curious baby and the mom whale go under the boat. We would do this trip again.

The tour guides, Alli and Sean, were great. We saw several whales, including one that breached. Twice they put the sonar in the water so we could hear them, which was incredible.

The best whale watching trip ever! I love that it was a smaller boat, so more personal. I’ve NEVER seen so many whales, seriously. First, a mom and her baby with mom slapping her fin and baby jumping out of the water many times….THEN an entire competition pod of about a dozen males following a female putting on quite a show! The captain and his assistant were terrific! Very informative and personable! A day hard to repeat for darn sure! I will go out on this ‘raft’ again…🤙🏼

We had a great experience with the two tour guides we had, they knew their business, very polite, and a lot of fun!! We had a group of whales of like 7-8, female and males. We watched them right out the gate and almost the whole time we were out, so cool! Very awesome, and very impressed

We have taken many whale watching tours out of Maui. The tour we took yesterday with Redline Tours was one of the best.. Our boat Captain Tim did an outstanding job with the boat. We had whales around our boat the whole time after we left the harbor. Our guide Kim was very knowable about whales. . She passed on this knowledge in a way that we all could understand. Tim and Kims personalities made our tour very enjoyable. We have already booked another whale watching tour with Redline for this Thursday. Thank you for making our vacation in Maui special.

Great outing. Super chill crew. Being in the raft was such a great vantage point, And they are so maneuverable that we were able to see several whales and whale pairs. Mama and baby. And two big males vying for her favor. Highly recommend, especially for the price!

With not a whole lot of expectations for this tour (with Mother Nature being so unpredictable) we were shocked at the quantity of whales we witnessed in such a short period of time. Truly an awesome experience.

This was our first trip to Maui. The Redline whale watching is a must! Spectacular views of the humpback whales up close. I highly recommend!
