The whales were super friendly. We spent 45 minutes with two whales that were so close to the raft we could have touched them! And it's true, whales have whiskers. We saw them, that's how close we were. Jeff, our pilot, and Rihanna, our biologist, really know all that could be known about Humpbacks. I learned a ton about whales.

Stephani and Sean were the best!! Took us to some amazing snorkel sites out by the island of Lani! It was so beautiful and they knew right where to take us for clear water. We had a very large group of dolphins swarm around our raft. And we loved the fact we were in a small group and not overcrowded.... More

Had a great morning with Sam and Serena! Booked a two hour whale watching tour and they took us right up close to a group of 5 active males. Got lots of great photos and really enjoyed our time! Thanks for being so awesome, and thanks for the memories. Love from the Montana crew.

First time whale watching and this was by far the most amazing experience I could have imagined!!! Capt Jeff and Rhianna were the BEST!!! Not even five minutes out and we had 4 right under our boat. Very rare to be 'mugged' which meant they kept coming towards the boat. So natural and beautiful. My kids comment was "It was... More

Stephanie and Amanda were a great team expertly navigating the pass, finding whales and good snorkling while keeping us entertained. Loved being out on the water and so close to the whales. Great day.

I took my 3 teens on this experience and it was amazing. Sean was an awesome narrator and story teller. He shared his life experience stories, his expertise in this industry and his passion for ocean life. I will take this whale watching company every time I return to Maui. We had a great time and saw lots of whales.... More
