Chad and Sarah were great guides! They were very informative and educated us on the whales and marine life in this area. We were fortunate to follow a mother and baby, and then a group of 4-6 males chasing a female! We also saw some dolphins. It was a great experience! Thank you, Chad and Sarah!

Wow!! What a trip, we had the best captain (Emma) and first mate (Christina). They were very informative and also cracked lots of jokes. Within minutes of leaving the harbor we were amongst 4-5 male whales fighting/competing for a female whale. The two hour tour was amazing and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Emma and Sara were awesome. This was the highlight of our trip. Saw 10 whale sightings with one whale swimming right next to our boat. A must do in Maui during whale season

A must see during whale season

Lots of up close whale time. Nice crew. They did everything they could to get in some position to see the whales when they were most active and did a really good job. Being on this size boat is a good experience because you can see the whales from either side instead of looking through the cabin and or around 100 other people. Would definitely recommend this as a way to go whale watching

Amy and Lacey were amazing guides. We had a great time and loved the small group experience. The boat was small enough that we could quickly maneuver to other locations and see more whales.

Great experience. Perfect sized boats to get close to the action. We were fortunate to see a lot of activity and even had a couple of whales swim under the boat. Nice and knowledgeable captain and whale expert. Would highly recommend.

Our guides were very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We could tell they have a passion for these whales. We were happy to be on a boat this size as we could quickly change course when a whale was spotted. Can’t wait to go again and bring our kids!

Whales under the Boat!!!!!

Whales Under the Boat!!!!! Been on several whale watches non compare to this!!!!! My kids saw humpback whales so close!!! This company is partnered with the entanglement program helping whales escape fishing nets. Much of the proceeds from the watch go to this program. These people have huge hearts and decades of experience.

This was the highlight of our trip. The ladies who did our trip also do work in Alaska. I’m so sorry that I’ve forgotten your names. If you can request them you should. Their personalities and stories made it so much fun. We saw whales and heard the stories. If we were here longer we would’ve done it twice it was that worth it. Shout out to the ladies who were leading our boat y’all are amazing.

Amazing whale watch
Nora_W

Hannah and Gabe were a great combo. They have a sixth sense about the whales. We traveled out to the west part of the island first and ran into an active baby. So many tail slaps and a rare spy hop. The mama showed up and Gabe sensed she was taking her baby back into the depths. We then moved to another location where three or four males were just showing off but not in a competitive manner. Lots of flukes and flippers. We were so close that we could see the turquoise water and almost see them with the naked eye; they were that close. Finally, Gabe spotted a “singer.” By the whale’s action, we traveled to its location and from the boat, we could hear it sing without the hydrophone. When Hannah dropped the hydrophone into the ocean we could hear the song amplified. But, once we recognized the song, we were able to sit on the boat and hear the whale sing. A first for us. An amazing whale watch. Very highly recommend this whale watch agency.
