Went with them for a dinner cruise. For the money it was worth it. The boat essentially went south from the harbor about a mile or two out. It turns around and comes back after dark. Did I mention its all you can drink. They encourage drinking as much as you want and they won't cut you off unless you fall overboard. The boat was nice and we got a seat on the second level. We were lucky to have a friendly couple to chat with as well. The food was alright, nothing amazing, but definitely nothing wrong with it. It is just difficult to find a caterer who can feed a lot of people with hot food at amazing quality. They were above average but I am picky! Staff was very nice and upbeat.

The tour was great. I have been on a number of whale watching tours and this one was one of the best. The pontoon boat held about 18 people so that was nice. The guide and captain were both very knowledgeable and helpful. We seen many hump back whales including calves. Educational and fun.

Excellent day on the water. We took the deluxe sail trip. The crew were knowledge and friendly. We saw a ton of whales including a mother with a new baby. Highly recommend this experience.

My wife, myself and our friend went on the Lanai Snorkel and Dolphin watch which was an experience we will never forget. The Captain and his crew were fantastic and very knowledgeable. They were also very attentive to ensuring everyone was enjoying themselves. My wife and I had a couple of mishaps. After spending 5 minutes in the water enjoying my first snorkel experience, I remembered I could not swim. My wife later on fell down the stairs to the back of the boat. The crew were amazing in tending to our situation. It did not deter our enjoyment. I would certainly go again.

We saw many active whales surfacing, breaching and whipping their tails. We also had a very interesting and knowledgeable Naturalist (Steven) to share some great information about sea life in Hawaii. A great experience!
