My family very much enjoyed our whale sighting trip. The crew was fun and very informative. They found whales quickly. We were able to see multiple whales (2 different species even) as well as dolphins. I really enjoyed that they put the sonar equipment in the water so we could hear them communicating. Great trip!

This is a well organized company. The moment you book you get details such as where to park for free, online booking, email waivers was easy and staff were super friendly at the store. We had 18 people on a boat that holds 90 so it was so nice to spread our. We went near the end of whale season so saw a few whales and one baby that was flipping around on its back. The crew were super nice and knowledgeable. You also got complementary drinks on the boat. It was a nice two hours on the water. The only thing I didn’t care for was when you get off the dock there is a person selling you a photo of you getting on the ship, I guess some people are into that so an ok option for them.

What a great company. We started with the Photo Safari (approximately 15 people on a boat built to hold over 60). Such a great trip that we went on one more last minute trip our last morning on Maui (slightly more crowded but just as amazing). Guides are fantastic and if you don't see at least one whale (spout, hump, tail) between Jan and March you are looking in the wrong direction.

Such a wonderful time for these first time whale watchers. Our boat narrator Dan was super informative and fun, with the help of another crew member Annie on the Spirit boat. We were lucky enough to see a few whales breach, dive and even a couple of whales swim directly under our boat. Dan and Annie told us several whale facts as well. Would highly recommend the Lanai Snorkel and Dolphin Watch because it was a great time and especially because the money you spend helps to fund their nonprofit work.

I have done this twice and would do it again. Try to avoid windy days. You can usually book same day even during the busy season. They find whales fast. They can't take you too close by law, but if the whales get curious, they will swim up to the boat -they call it "getting mugged" then. by law, the boat can't move. We got "mugged" the first time I did the trip - the whales swam right under us - it was incredible and I saw a breach from a distance. The second time there were lots of whale tales and a baby whale breached. You don't get this every time - but I guess frequently enough that I got 2 out of 2. Your iphone may not be enough to get a good picture - you'll want a camera with a good zoom.
