Afternoon Maui whale watching
Micheline_F
, Mar 2022
The trip was excellent. The boat wasn’t overcrowded like other whale watching trips I have been on. The crew took plenty of time so you could maximize your experience. We also had a decent amount of time for snorkeling. They had plenty of food and a good choice of drinks on board. It was also definitely one of the longer trips offered. Price was very fair for what was offered.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
We are so pleased that you appreciate the fact that we do not over crowd our boats. When I am at the harbor, look over and see the passengers crammed elbow to elbow on the other tour boats, even though I know that my competitors are taking a lot more customers, I feel proud that we continue to operate at about half our Coast Guard capacity, and in doing so, provide to our guests the very best boat tours on Maui. Thank You for recognizing the difference it makes and sharing with others the quality of your experience. .

Great experience - uncrowded time of day
Deborah_R

Seeing dozens of whales near the boat and also being the only boat at Molokini Crater when snorkeling. The food was also very good. The crew was super friendly and hardworking. A+ to them. Had wet suits for $10 which kept everyone warm while snorkeling for an hour.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Some Maui boats offer bargain basement pricing, and pack their boats completely full. Our guests enjoy an uncrowded and unrushed experience, aboard Maui's largest and most stable Maxi Power Catamaran, "Pride of Maui", where we limit the number of guests to just over half our Coast Guard rated capacity. This allows us to provide an unmatched level of personalized service, at a very relaxed pace. Thank You for recognizing our team, who bring their very best every day! We are pleased to hear you rate us as A+, and appreciate you sharing your experience.

We saw a lot of whales, including two minutes into our trip! The crew was helpful and kind and we felt very safe and comfortable on the boat. Snorkeling equipment was in great condition and we were thrilled to snorkel at the crater. Highly recommend!

So many whales

So many whales. Crew was friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend! Snorkeling was fun. Kids loved the slide off the boat.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
We began combining a whale watch with snorkeling some years ago, vs. one or the other, and the combination of the two has become very popular with guests like yourself, who appreciate both activities. I’m happy your entire family had a great time and thank you for recognizing and appreciating my stellar crew. They are the very best of the best!

Not to be missed!

From check in through the entire voyage the staff was amazing! A small but mighty team took great care to provide the best experience. We were fortunate to see many humpbacks, some with calves and even other whale species. Snorkeling was fun and the fresh barbecue lunch and top shelf open bar topped it all off. Easily worth every penny and kudos to the crew!

We saw at least 30 whales. We were told that the whales would not be active in the afternoon; that person was wrong! Several competition pods made for interesting views. Well worth the cost.

We love the North Pacific Humpback Whales. They are here this season in very high numbers, and are quite active as well. Thank you for joining us.

They make sure everyone is take care of and makes sure you got what you expected out of the day! Please make sure your choice is this group.

Easy on and Easy off process and they kept the customer services at a top notice through out the whole process!

Great if you don’t mind not going to Molokini as advertised
selenariley
, Jan 2020
The advertisement clearly stated it was a molokini snorkel and whale watching combo tour. That’s why I bought the tickets, to snorkel Molokini. The description on the ticket doesn’t tell you where to go and the help number was not too helpful either and we had to walk around a lot around the harbor to find it. At the briefing prior to boarding another traveler commented he was expecting to go to Molokini and we were then advised that was for morning trips only (we were on 1:30 pm). Besides that complete let down the trip was great, saw lots of whales very close by and the borrowed snorkeling gear worked. We brought our own full face masks and were told it was banned. The snorkel area they took us to was ok but nowhere near stunning. Open bar was good and had plenty of food and staff was friendly.

Misleading description
Jenny_T
, Jan 2020
The company advertises it as a tour to Molokini, but in reality takes you to some other coral reef that is not nearly as interesting
icon Response from Host , Jan 2020
Aloha, Molokini Crater is a beautiful location located 3 miles offshore. We go to the crater over 90% of the time. Occasionally, inclement weather and heavy seas makes it unsafe to go offshore. On those days, we take you to one of our other beautiful coral reefs, like Coral Gardens, or Turtle Town. Most of the time when the weather is prohibitive, we know in advance, announce it and allow guests to reschedule. Other times, we don’t know until the Captain is offshore as the weather develops. Though perhaps not as interesting as Molokini, the snorkeling elsewhere is quite nice with exceptional visibility, colorful coral and a variety of marine animals. Guest safety is our number one priority. Fortunately, going out to the crater is safe about 90% of the time. Mahalo,
