Great excursion! I loved hearing the whales talk to one another. We saw more whales breaching that day than had been seen in a while.

This was an excellent tour. The ship captain and the narrator were very good and knowledgeable. The team was very interactive with those on board, both top deck and bottom deck. On February 24, we saw lots of whales, including a baby whale practicing its breaching.

We saw number of whales. They were breaching the water. The staff is very knowledgeable. We were booked on two tours that were both canceled before we actually got on the boat so be flexible. The whales playing in the water is an amazing site.

There are lots of options available for whale watching and this tour given by the whale foundation is as good as it gets and you are helping the conservation efforts of this program. The tour my wife and I took was great ---- lots of whales and quality information from the onboard staff. This is a must do while in Maui during the winter months.


4 star rating: Recommended February 2017

Crew was very good and knowledgeable. The weather was not cooperative with relatively rough seas making it uncomfortable for several of the guests. Overall it was a good tour and would have probably been great if the seas were calmer.


4 star rating: Recommended December 2016

We went early Dec. still not whale watching season, yet we were able to see several of them. The crew was very knowledgeable.

Interesting trip but boat we were allocated to was too big with too many people which strictly limited the viewing opportunities. Just two of us but we were added to a large group from a cruise ship which was not ideal. No prior warning that this would be the situation. Two days previous we had the opportunity to do the activity on a smaller boat, impromptu decision as we feared the weather may close in and that experience outshone this one. Had we not done the previous trip then may have scored the activity higher. Expert on board was informative but the way the boat was manouvered meant that large parts of the boat did not present a view of the whales. Overall whilst a memorable experience the organisation was disappointing. Take a smaller vessel to get the best experience.

It was OK, I had thought that I had reserved for the smaller rubber boat tour not the crowed large boat.
