"awesome crew with pacific Whale Foundation"
January, 2015
We had a great time with the crew and got to see and hear a lot of whales. My favorite part was listening to the underwater microphone. The squeaks and noises from the ocean were amazing to hear from the boat.

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!
