This was my second time sailing with PacWhale. When we were in Maui last time we did a snorkeling cruise with them this time we did the whale watching tour. We saw so many whales! We were barely out of the harbor when we saw our first mother calf. We really loved going on a sailboat. The staff is always friendly and the juices they served were delicious! Best of all by supporting this company you see supporting the conservation work they do for whales and our ocean. It’s a win win!
