Captain Simon and crew were professional, engaging, and made everyone feel welcome and comfortable. Very easy on and off boat. Saw several whales. Great memory and great value!

This excursion was everything that my family could have expected and then some. The hospitality of this crew was superb. The vessel was amazing and made the ability for all passengers to be able to witness a “lifetime experience “. We were onto humpbacks within the first hour of our afternoon and stayed with these amazing creatures all afternoon. Highly recommend this trip when you are visiting Kona! Thank you to Captain and his mates, especially Kelly. Great people.

The ride, seeing the island from the ocean. Having a chance to see the whales at a close enough to hear them spout.

From the first 5 minutes to the last 5 we saw whales almost the entire time!! Our favorite part was when we came upon a baby that kept jumping up out of the water over and over!!! The crew was professional and friendly. Would definitely recommend - worth every penny.

The crew was exceptionally attentive. They constantly made sure we were all comfortable and well fed. The tour itself was phenomenal. We saw many whales and breaches. We were given ample time to get amazing pictures and video. I would do it again. I highly recommend it.
