This is a fairly impressive seacoast tour. We managed to see and understand history of last lava formations in Maui, drawing into amazing coastline. We saw dolphins and whales. And enjoyed amazing snorkeling in molokini. Maybe they could upscale some details (e.g. Food) and provide some professional photographer who can take pictures while people enjoy the beauties the tour offers!

We saw some of the most beautiful rock formations and caves, whales, sea turtles and hit some of the best snorkeling sites! We were with Capt. Joey and Stephanie and they were the BEST! Very accommodating, very funny and very knowledgeable about the sea life, and the formation of the islands.

This was a fun excursion and I was delighted that we saw whales. Our captain found 2 males that were in competition and we followed them and got as close as we were allowed, This is a raft so it was a fun ride and we did get a little wet. I chose this after reading reviews and we were... More

Blue Water Rafting is the only company permitted to visit the South Maui lava fields by boat. Captain Curtis and Kenny were very informative, entertaining, and experts at guiding their raft for the best views of this spectacular coastline. In addition, there were a couple of great snorkeling stops. Lunch, snacks, and refreshments were thoughtfully provided. Looking forward to repeating... More

After 2 cancellations with ocean rafting ?, we tried the web and with booking agent suggested 'blue water' 4 hour Kanaio Coast with a bonus that the meeting spot was across the road from our accommodation for 0630 start. Excellent time to start, not too cool or warm, spray jacket was a good choice for trip out. Us 3 adults... More

We have been going out with Blue Water Rafting for several years. My husband called a day in advance and they accommodated 4 adults. They are a lot of fun and always do their best to find a great show. This year the whales cooperated and we got a really great show with a breaching baby! Thanks to Capt. Larry... More

Whales bring such delight as they jump and splash for us, blue water rafting has never disappointed me on their whale watch tour. I recommend them to all.

We had an incredible outing with Kenny & Joey. It really is just up to chance as to how good the particular whale watch is going to be, but on this day a whale just hung around. No breaching, but the closeness he traveled & going underneath the raft a couple of times made the experience spectacular. Both Kenny &... More

Hi Paula NMN, Thank you for the review and kind words. We are happy to hear you were able to see a whale up close! Sometimes we think this is better than breaching! Please join us again for another adventure! With Aloha, Mark More
