We come to Maui this time of year to whale watch. Other than kayaking, taking an inflatable boat is the best way to get up close and personal with the whales. The crews are knowledgeable and always locate whales. The boat ride itself is exhilarating with the ocean spray in your face. We always take the 8:00 AM tour and have never been disappointed. My only criticism is the rock music played while riding to the whale locations. I would much rather hear the sounds of the waves.
Several friends of mine went on a whale watching tour with Guaranteed Whale Watch in Kihei, Maui and had an excellent time. You meet in the parking lots and, in our case, were introduced to Tobey and Stephanie. Tobey is the captain and Stephanie is the naturalist (and first mate). After filling our the usual release-of-liability forms, Tobey explained what would be happening. They do have dry storage on board the raft. The raft is a boat with pontoons on all sides (if you're squeamish about a raft, don't be. This is a nice sized boat. We went down to the dock, took our shoes off (I'd recommend flipflops) and stepped onto the boat. When leaving the dock area, we picked up speed to get to the usual whale watching area. Tobey and Stephanie would be looking for water spouts from the whales blowing out or other physical exertions. We saw lots of whales and even a couple of calves. We also saw a full on breech. I felt safe at all times and had a lot of fun. After a while you could spot whales on your own. We were lucky in that the water was calm. The tour was approx. 90 minutes and I recommend the 8am tour. I highly recommend taking Guaranteed Whale Watch for any of the tours they operate.
We had a great trip hosted by Captain Jonathan and First Mate Josh. It was a little rough on the water in patches, but they got us to great spots for snorkeling and whale watching. We were lucky in that we found a small group of whales who seemed like they wanted to perform just for us. Jonathan and Josh provided excellent commentary about the area and how the coastline was formed. They stayed in touch with all participants to be sure that everyone was comfortable. This was our second rafting trip on Hawaiian islands. I'd recommend scopolamine patches for anyone who is prone to seasickness. It served us well both times. Guaranteed Whale Watch was a great find for us. Highly recommended.
