A great morning on the water, saw whales and dolphins. Staff on board were very friendly.
It was awesome. So much fun. I will do it again the next time I go to Hawaii.
I had a great time on my tour. We saw so much that day and our tour guide, Steve, kept us going so that we could see many things. He also worked around the rain so we didn't get too wet. It was a wonderful tour and I will recommend it to anyone.
Saw some Dolphins that came really close to the boat and a humpback whale! Informative and fun :)
Everything went smoothly. Saw a number of whales and enjoyed the presentation.
Weather was good... Lunch was fantastic.... Crew were fantastic.... The wales decided to show us they were alive...I was able to get many personal pictures with my camera but still purchased 3 that the professional guy took. 4 years ago we took the submarine trip by the same company... They both were fantastic....It was worth every dollar of the tour...
Great day, we saw whales. As we started to head back to shore the whales started to play giving us a performance of breaching, chin slapping etc, we had a great captain who turned the boat back so that we were able to watch.
Trip was awesome- loved being by the naturalist and learning so much. Photphrpher at entrance was great- she posed my sister and myself and we had a great time.
The craft was in excellent condition and the crew very accommodating. The meal was very well prepared and presented. The day was perfect and the views beautiful. It was an extra special pert to actually get to see a couple of whales and many spouts!
While in Oahu I went whale watching three times, the first was on this tour and it was by far the absolute best ... closer to the action, much more responsive boat to what was going on around us, the on-board naturalist was very knowledgeable. The ship was clean and very well kept, we had a beautiful sailing day so the water was fairly calm. We saw whales though unfortunately none breached, we did see plenty of action watching two mothers with their calves. Even though we kept the legal distance from the whales, we had the experience of them coming close to us to check us out three different times ... doesn't get any better! This cruise was on the Navatek and I thought it far superior to the Star of Honolulu cruise which I took later in the week (not through Viator). The whales tended to cavort in the waters off Diamondhead and I hope that any of you who book this cruise enjoy it as much as I did!!
Very friendly staff. Lunch was good and well prepared. Enjoyed looking for whales and being on the ship.
We loved the trip, Josh I think that was his name made the trip very special. He helped us out and made sure that we had a great time.
The naturist was very knowledgeable and made the morning very enjoyable.
everything was on time and very enjoyable. saw whales, but not breaching.
This was a great tour and we got to see a few whales! My husband had a great time as it was his birthday present!
The crew did everything they could to give us great views of the whale activity, but the whales just weren't into playing that day. We saw a few tails and flippers, but no breaches. It still was a great day on the water, and we had the best views of Waikiki and Diamond Head!
Very professionally run with very knowledgeable staff. The food was delicious. Did see some whales but wish they had been closer. Well worth the money
Excellent! Very informative and the tour is very patient to allow several opportunities to view the whales. The tour was very respectful of the whales and their environment which I was grateful for. It didn't feel as thought we were intruding on the animals.
Fantastic commentary from a very knowledgable guide, we not only saw whales but had dolphins riding the bow of the boat all the way out. Got some brilliant photos!
We saw a mother and her calf not more than 15 minutes after leaving the dock! Watched them the whole time. As an added bonus, saw a sea turtle right close to the boat. Definitely worth the trip/tour! Would have liked to be able to look at the items in the gift shop once we were back to shore but it was only open while at sea.
