The three ladies who took us out that morning were wonderful! One of the best days of our trip was spent on this boat! There were so many dolphins and whales that morning that I was in heaven! Such an incredible experience and I recommend it to everyone!!
If you are in Waikiki and thinking about doing this tour, no hold it, if you are in Waikiki book this tour now!
It starts by getting picked up at about 5:30 there is a later tour and then driven about an hour north west of Waikiki. After a quick check in, which includes choosing you lunch dont be shy Spinners food is fantastic you are soon heading off on the water.
Our first encounter with the whales was via the on board hydrophone which allowed us to hear these giants of the sea sing to each other. Not too long after this we were amazed with several whales breaching and breathing within meters of the boat!
After watching the whales pass us by, we then made our way to the pod of spinner dolphins. We donned our snorkelling gear and slipped into the water and got up close and personal with these extraordinary creatures. We spent at least 30 minutes snorkelling with them, and there must have been around 100 dolphins around us. Unbelievable!
Soon after the dolphin encounter we were in the water with some green sea turtles which capped off our snorkelling adventure. To our surprise, on the way back to the harbour we noticed there were dolphins riding the bow and wake of the boat. It was as if they were saying good bye to us!
The all-female crew were very knowledgeable and professional in all aspects of the tour.
We rate this as one of the best tours on Oahu
It was wonderful. We saw lots and lots of whales. This is a 120 foot yacht and the largest whale watching boat on Maui. I prefer a sturdy boat as opposed to the small ones, even though the smaller boats are allowed to get closer to active whales. There were drinks and snacks available for purchase on board, but we were too busy watching the whales cavort.

Tour operators were great. Ship clean and comfortable. Only problem was we saw no whales which was not their fault, however, we did receive a voucher for another trip that is good for several years. Pickup and drop off at hotel was an added bonus. Would definitely do this again!!

It was a great day. The crew were extremely nice and professional, not stuffy. We saw 6-7 whales and the Captain always ensured to point the bow at the whales. Didn't see any dolphins, but that's not what the cruise is about. Its whales and we did see quite a few. Wish Captain could have gotten closer. Great Day on the water.

The trip was in a word - awesome. Captain Anthony, Megan, Kelly and Rodney made the voyage a highlight of our trip to Hawaii. We will be bringing our own snorkeling gear and going again with you this year. The crew took care of our every need, from picking us up, getting us fed, getting us some time viewing whales and dolphins, and making sure everyone got some time swimming with turtles. Kudos to everyone!
Truly a must do when in Kauai. The captain and crew were great, the trip was awesome and it was a great, great experience. Due to heavy seas the day before, we were not sure if we would be going out, but Ian, our captain, said let's give it a try, as the seas seem to be calming. It was an exhilarating time! Many whale sightings, including one where two whales waved their tales! Beautiful scenery and a great cruise.

Great tour! Got to see dolphins, turtles, and whales! The staff is friendly and helpful as well!
it was so great! We got to see so many whales today I really did lose count. We saw so may spinner dolphins also. The team including Tamar were fantastic. Special thanks to the lovely woman who rescheduled my booking too. It was so much appreciated and it really was the highlight of my trip.
SO much better than we expected! The girls who run the tour are absolutely sweethearts and total pros! We snorkeled with a HUGE pod of spinner dolphins about 200 of them I think, turtles, beautiful fish and got some amazing photos from the photographer on the trip with us.
You must do this tour!
My parents and their friends went on this tour which was a gift from me. While I was not there in person, they called me to tell me that the tour was one of the highlights of their vacation. They saw many dolphins, sea turtles and colorful fish. The guides were well informed and shared many interesting facts about sea life. They spent 3 hours on the ocean which was plenty of time to relax and observe the marine life.
Absolutely amazing! By far my favorite thing we did on the trip! We actually got to swim with Dolphins in the wild. Completely surreal.
This was a wonderful excursion. Our daughter's dream was to hold an octopus- she traveled 5,000 miles in the midst of cancer treatment and Lexi made her dream come true! The whole experience was top notch- we swam with dolphins and sea turtles and the pictures were amazing. Memories to last a life time. Thank you.
Excellent tour! Boat crew and staff were wonderful. We were in the water with dolphins swimming by within a few feet. Saw a whale, sea turtles and lots of fish. Highly recommended. Only down side was the web site information and email confirmation stated departure at 7. That actually meant departure from the pier not from the hotel. The driver called at 5 to pick us up and kindly waited 15 minutes for us to scramble together. Glad we did. A very memorable experience!
We did this tour on Oct 30. We had the perfect day weatherwise and our catain, Gen and his crew, Branson and Koma were terrific. Glen made sure that safety issues were addressed and reinforced and was diligent in attending to them throughout our voyage. This pwrticular vessel was designed specifically for the tours that it does. It is somewhat smaller than other catamarans and has two powerful 450 engines that allow it to navigte the large sea swells on the north coast. The smaller size and power allows the captain to sail inside the reef and closer to shore where larger boats can''t go. We were dazzled by the beauty of ghe cliffs with the colours and the shadows of the afternoon sun. There were drinks and snacks available onboard immediately and the crew made sure everyone had what the wanted and needed brining things to us as it was difficult to walk around holding drinks and plates wgile needing to hold on. Hey even very caringly and discretely looked after a gentleman who was quite seasick. Later were were served pulled pork and tuna buns with salad fresh veggies, fresh fruit and cookies. All very yummy. We stayed out on the water until just after the beautiful sunset when we then returned to dock. We were very impressed with this tour, our Captain and his crew, the scenery, the commentary, the dolphins that were playing around the boat, and the overall experience. We were also fortunate to have the perfect weather day, which, of couse is never guaranteed. This tour is worth every penny. Thank you Glen, Branson, and Koma. You helped to make this day one we will always remember.
