Laura, callen and Courtney absolutely made our day!!! head and shoulders best experience to be had on the island loved it. They where friendly, knowledgeable and funny. They do a smaller more personal tour we had 30 people and we where blessed with perfect weather and did four dive sights and got to see whales and swim with the fish and even turtles great cause u get a feed and have more room to move in the water and on the boat. They even dropped a under water mic so we could hear the whales!! Can’t imagine trying to get any more out of a day. A must do if in Maui!!!

Excellent captain and crew. Extremely educated in marine biology. Safe and fun. We captured many photos of the humpback whales. Their passion for saving these beautiful creatures was 5 star for us.
