Beautiful cruise
Mar 2021 • Couples
We went on the sunrise whale watching tour but we didn’t see any whales. So they gave us a voucher for the sunset cruise and it was beautiful. The whales refused to show themselves again but the ride was great!

Fun Trip out of Waikoloa.
Mar 2021
We did the 9:45 out of Waikoloa. Fun trip with Captain Ash. Friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. Even late in the migration season they managed to make sure we got to see whales.

Fantastic Experience!
Mar 2020
My husband and I took our 2 and 5 year old on this whale watching experience. The guide and crew were knowledgeable and very accommodating as its sometimes a challenge to bring littles anywhere. We saw many whales And my 5 year old even got to drive the boat! I highly recommend this company for your whale watching experience!

Whale watch tour
Feb 2020 • Couples
Enjoyed whale tour which began with seeing turtles as we left A-bay shoreline. I was expecting powered catamaran, but ended up being powered raft, which turned out to be better, especially when we heard whale sounds through the raft. Cushioned seats with handles off back of seat in front were good for stability when raft was quickly accelerated to get near whales. We were able to see groups of 3 whales a couple of times. Skipper and crew mate gave good explanations.

Waste of time and money
Jan 2020 • Couples
For starters I’m certainly not reviewing the staff. They were just fine. But I struggle to say we sale whales when we saw a single tail from about 400 yards away. For $200 that’s ridiculous. And because it was the 1:25pm time slot it basically took the entire day away. Again, the staff was fine but this shouldn’t have counted as watching and we should have been able to reschedule. Don’t book. I know people get the great experience but that’s the exception and not the rule so save yourself the aggravation. This really brought down our trip.
