"Fantastic eco-friendly whale tour "

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this eco-friendly and affordable whale tour. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable, and the boat was big enough to be comfortable but small enough to limit the number of attendees. We spotted several humpback whales and lots of turtles! We would happily book this tour again.

The crew of the Ko Nau Lani made our day yesterday with a beautiful sail, engaging information, dolphins, reef snorkeling, drinks, food and wonderful weather. Best activity in Hawaii.

"Best catamaran experience, ever! "

My boyfriend and I visited Hawaii for his birthday and found out about the Spirit of Aloha from the Marriott hotel staff. It was the best snorkeling experience ever as Gail stayed with my BF the entire time in the water, since he doesn’t know how to swim, and kept him safe. This enabled me to swim, and sleep, freely without worrying about him. Gail’s exceptionally patient and reassuring. The entire crew was exceptional - Tess, Jorgen, Josh, and Gail. Would highly recommend.

"Not great"

Went on whale watching trip that was scheduled from 3pm-4:30pm. We spent first half hour of tour at the dock while the crew fueled the boat and cleaned the bathroom. So really was only an hour on the water. Was not a great tour, I would probably try a different company next time.
