Our driver was part of the crew and he was very friendly. The whole crew was friendly and helpful. The boat ride was refreshing and we had a great time even though we didn't see any whales. It was a bit late in the season so it was harder to find the whales. The captain saw some whales and tried to catch up to them but was unable to catch them. We were given a voucher for a return trip at out convenience. Overall a good time!

The boat captain and his crew were very nice. We were able to see some humpbacks which was pretty cool!
GREAT TIME DID NOT SEE ANY WHALES BUT THEY WILL GIVE YOU A VOUCHER TO COME AGAIN THE BOAT GUIDES WERE AWESOME
This activity was awesome. The crew could not be nicer or more helpful. I will do it again on my next visit to Hawaii. On a negative point, I was over charged for the trip and the time of the trip has changed. Viator needs to contact the company to get updated information.

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!!
Friendly staff, great Snacks and perfect whale watching - Thank you!
This was the highlight of our trip. Crew was great and very knowledgeable. Dave, Barry, and Shannon went out of there way to make our afternoon a memorable one. We saw lots of dolphins and about 10 whales. I would do this again in a heartbeat.
Great trip...crew knowledgeable and professional...saw many whales, turtles...comfortable boat.
Great crew, a lot of fun on this tour. There were drinks available for purchase and the crew was very friendly and knowledgable. We saw several sightings of humpback whales. Overall a great time.
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.
Sadly, as late in the season we saw no whales, but got a free return trip, which we took, but still no whales, however the captain made certain we got to see turtles swimming, the crew were great fun and very knowledgable, so we still learnt plenty, despite the no show. You can't control nature.
They showed up to pick us up at our hotel exactly when they said they would. Staff was light-hearted yet courteous. Several folks on board got seasick, but they handled that well. We saw several whales while we were out.
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!
Nice catamaran, with fully stocked bar downstairs, what a surprise. View of the water, city and diamond head were beautiful. Would have like to have had more communication from crew. Nothing abut the whales, how far out we were, how deep the water is, etc. The crew didn't seem interested in the clients. No notice of when we were nearing time to turn around, would have liked to been on a tour that was at least an hour longer. We saws whales, mostly in the far distance, a couple close up. Enjoyed seeing the majestic whales and be in the see breeze. Nice day.
Nice boat ride, fun crew, but no whales and no information about whales given.
