We had a fantastic time ! Josh and Barry are awesome guys, they did all that they could to make sure we had the experience of a life time....we did get to see one small whale and 6 sea turtles....I would do it again!! Thank you Josh and Barry!! Tina and Robynn Burch
This was great! Loved the boat Captain and crew. Great people! The boat was nice. Fun to be out on the water. We saw sea turtles and a whale. Between the water, the views of the island and the marine life it was a great morning! Will do this again!
We saw so many Whales, we could not count them all. Also saw some Dolphins and a monk sea lion (which are going extinct). Our captain and his helper really made us feel comfortable.
The guys that took on this excursion really knew what they were doing. The weather wasn't great but they could spot the whales and point them out to us in time to see them. What fun we had. Thanks Josh and Dan!
When booking our trip we looked at many different options. We were very excited to find Oahu Whale-Watching Excursions which seemed to be a more intimate setting. Captains Josh and Dan were absolutely fantastic. As soon as we left the harbor we saw whales and dolphins playing in the distance. Josh and Dan were very knowledgeable and just as excited to be there as we were. The smaller boat proved to be a much better experience versus the larger "dinner/whale" boat cruses we have booked in the past. Snacks and drinks were provided. Josh and Dan would get as close as they legally could to the whales and turn the boat off to drift when the whales ventured too close.
This was a very wonderful experience and we would suggest Oahu Whale-Watching Excursion to anyone looking for a more "real" adventure vs the larger cattle call Whale watching tours out there.
We enjoyed being on the water on a gorgeous Honolulu day. The staff was very friendly and walked around talking to everyone. We only had about 12 people on the boat with us which was real nice. I only give it four stars because we didn't see any whales but we did see a few turtles. They gave us a certificate so that anytime we return we can go on another tour free since we didn't see any whales.
Bad weather and end of season hampered our excursion but the kids still had a great time on the boat. We saw a baby whale and many turtles. Boat crew was fantastic.
We did not see any whales on this trip, but the tour operator gave us a voucher to re-do the trip at a later time. In spite of not seeing any whales, it was a nice boat ride with a great sunset and wonderful views of Waikiki! Would definitely do this again!
