My sisters and I went out on a fabulous Whale Watching trip on Monday April 24th with marine biologists, Dan and Steven. We were lucky enough to have seen mother, calf and male escort breaching and frolicking about. The information on board was fantastic regarding the marine mammal life in the Hawaiian waters. Hospitality was awesome and I highly recommend this tour to others! A big thumbs up from the Canuck sisters from Canada.

Best staff in town to get you some whales! We saw 5 during the tail end of the season. Very professional and informative. The boats are well equipped for a good time. Also the broader mission to help marine life is inspiring. A must for anyone interested in seeing and saving whales
