This was the most incredible thing I have ever seen! We were surrounded by whales. They cane out of the water to look at us and they swam underneath the boat. We enjoyed hearing about the whales from Capt Thomas and I am glad our fee will help save these amazing animals.

The Captain was very knowledgeable about where to find the whales. He also told us a lot about their habits. It was very good cruise. The staff was very nice as well.

We were a party of eight. The boat was large and comfortable with indoor and seating on two outside decks as well. We saw a lot of Humpback whales including mother and calfs and juveniles. Boat was very stable multi hull. Very knowledgeable captain and crew.

We went on whale watch with the Maui whale watch cruise today. We saw 2-3 whales really up close right next to our boat! The whales played around our boat for more than half an hour! They sprouted, flipping their flippers and tails, hiding under the boat for shade. What is the most incredible is that they came out of water and greeted us — so close that they almost could kiss us! It is simply a once in a lifetime experience! A tip is to arrive early, since parking is difficult to find and the paid parking on front street is very expensive ($84 for more than 2 hours!), and they let people board about 15 minutes before so you would want to get a good seat.

After a few days deciding on family activities we close this whale watch. We were unsure what to expect aside from a great morning sailing the pacific waters around Maui in hopes of whale sightings. First of all, the crew is informative and focused on making each experience excellent. We learned a lot about the mating habits of the whale and the annual migration from Alaska to fulfill the goal of procreation. We were blessed by sighting of whales who showed up and showed out. Be sure to check out the Maui Whale watch cruise during your visit.

This was a wonderful experience and very family friendly. Everyone on the boat was mast including staff. The captain the ship gave a lot of information regarding whales in the area.As I said in the title I don’t even remember how many we saw but we saw tons over and over again. Of course we went in January which is high season for the whales to be there. We even saw a mother and her baby whale which was really exciting.I would definitely recommend this trip if you can.
