One of my favorite experiences in Maui.
, Apr. 2022
The crew was very fun and friendly! The boat was comfortable and the passengers were great! The music added to the vibe. We saw several whales, one that was young and playful, actively jumping and splashing around. Drinks were great! It was a wonderful experience and I’m so glad we did it.
Awesome experience and crew

Our family of 9 had a great time on this whale watching trip. The boat was beautiful and the crew was very helpful and pleasant. Wish we could have seen more whales and closer but it was the end of the season and we did see some. Loved just being out on the water really.

The crew was so great and the cruise was so smooth that we enjoyed watching whales while enjoying an open bar relaxing in their cute bean bags
Such a blast!

It was fun! The drinks on board were a plus. Another great experience was hearing the sounds of the whales from this device one of the team members used (can't remember what it's called).

We had a great time. The service was excellent - we were never without a drink in our hands. We saw tons of whales, actually spending a good portion of the trip observing a pod. Definitely one of the best parts of our trip to Maui!

Awesome customer service by all of the staff on the boat! They were super on top of serving drinks and attentive! There was a lady that got sea sick and they were very good about trying to help her the best they could. Would go with Sea Maui again!
Exactly what we were looking for

Very attentive and friendly crew! The boat was large enough for it to not feel crowded, and the music was great. We also saw tons of whales!
Awesome crew and amazing views!

This whale watching cruise was so much fun, we got to see and learn about whales while enjoying the beautiful scenery and refreshing coctails with family and friends. I tried to book another trip the next day but they were sold out, so be sure to get your tickets on advance!
Fun in the sun

Great day for whale watching! We had a terrific time watching so Many whales. Also, learned so many facts about whales. The crew was very helpful and friendly! Also, if you like an open bar, this is the tour for you. Only down side would possibly be the beach pick up and landing. We both got soaked! We didn’t mind but better to be prepared! Also, make sure you wear sunscreen! Lots of sun little shade on the catamaran.

The large number of whales we saw and the dolphins at the end. The drinks were a great bonus and made it even more fun! Thanks for the great time.
