We are newlyweds and going to Maui was on our minds since we first met. We dreamt about snorkeling in Maui but like most couples did not know where to start. With a little research we discovered The Pacific Whales Foundation. When we found out that they were a non profit organization we jumped on booking our snorkeling trip to Molokai with them. We were so lucky that we did. Upon seeing their big boat we felt so safe. We also learned that all their employees were college grads and life guard trained. We absolutely loved this snorkeling trip and highly recommend The Pacific Whale Foundation for their Whale Watching and Snorkeling trips. This trip was amazing and we will never forget it! Dustin&Amy

This is the third time we have done an adventure with Pacific Whale Foundation, each time was breathtaking. This time we did the Molokini Wild Side Eco-Adventure & it did not disappoint, even got to watch the humpbacks as they put on a show. The crew - Captain Mike, Megan, Joshua & Chris were amazing; they shared their knowledge of the environment while informing us of all the postive accomplishments they have made for the ecology. Totally worth the time & money!

Professional and fun staff, we saw a lot of whales! The large boat is still quite rocky so beware. Well worth the money, we would do it again!
