Fun adventure

Fun way to be out viewing whales. Everyone was great and the boat adds to the excitement. I would always prefer this type of craft over a large boat.

We had Captain Joe and Ariel on both our trips and they were awesome, entertaining, and very helpful. On the first day we did the whale watch and saw tons of whales up close, very exciting. The second day we did the snorkeling tour which included the lava formations and caves and Molokini. Unfortunately the weather was not the best... More

Good crew. They would help and ease you into snorkeling if you are a first timer. Sighted whales. Children enjoyed it. Did it without rushing

This was well worth the money. Suppose to be a snorkel cruise but was all the cruises in one. Captain Joey V was the best. We saw the sun rise over the mountains, 4 whales came 5ft from our raft, saw some awesome lava formations, snorkeled with 3 sea turtles, manta rays, and saw some cool coral and fish. Best... More

Unfortunately the weather was not very cooperative, but other than that, we had a great day. It was a little difficult finding the dock and tour guide (there are a few tours happening at the same time, so is quite disorganized), perhaps a sign might be helpful. Once we were on our way, the captains made the snorkelling adventure entertaining... More

We have been whale watching several times in Maui but Blue Water Rafting is the best! We loved every minute of our ride. The crew was great and so much fun! We saw lots of whales and even had one come up very close to our raft. My husband and I highly recommend this tour for the very best view... More

The crew were terrific striking a good balance between fun and informative. I have never seen so many Humpback whales but Captain Joey was always very careful to follow the rules and not get too close. The zodiac is a basic boat, so may not appeal to someone wanting a luxurious experience, but you feel really close to the ocean.... More

We choose the smaller boat even though a bit more money and glad we did. The smaller boat is faster and able to be quite flexible and move to the whales. Teddy and Samantha were great hosts. We saw a double breach right near the end of the tour. We are here till the end of Month and plan to... More

Which after all is what is important about a whale watch. Captain Larry is an silver haired sea dog who charmed the ladies. The young fella was nice as well, cant recalll his name. Highly recommended.
