I have gone snorkeling and on whale/dolphin watch trips with Pacific Whale Foundation a number of times. Always a good experience. Even if the animals you look for aren't there, there's always other interesting things to see and learn. I also like that they also do research and education!

"Dolphin Watch"

Got to go on a dolphin watch last week on Pacific Whale's Ocean Spirit. It took about an hour to get out to Lanai, but when we got there there must have been about 100 dolphins. My granddaughter loved looking down through the webbing at the front of the catamaran at the dolphins swimming below. We actually go monthly on the Ocean Spirit for whale watches from Dec. to March and they have never disappointed.

Very nice and quiet sunset cruise. Parking for this was tough and a long walk to get to the pier. Dinner was included but was not that good. If your looking to get a view of the harbor this would be a good choice

We thoroughly enjoyed our sunset cruise. The crew was very friendly and welcoming. Plenty of food and drink. The best part was the scenery of the West Maui mountains topped off by a rainbow. Absolutely perfect.

Pros: Got lucky with excellent weather. Only went to two spots, but really good locations. Breakfast and lunch were very good! The whole staff had a good attitude, very informative and great sense of humor. Also, leaving from Ma’alea worked perfect for us being in Kapalua. Cons: Signed up through Expedia and there was a problem with the reservation. Had to buy two extra adult tickets on the spot for $230. They blamed Expedia and it ended up being them. Not a great start to the morning, but was credited in a few days. All in all, well worth the price and time spent! Would recommend it...
