Sodas, juices, alcohol and snacks are also available for purchase inside the bottom deck cabin, as well as two restrooms.

We went out on a whale watching tour from Ma'alaea Harbor. We got really lucky and got in a pod of whales. They came really close to the boat and under the boat even though the engines were shut down. We got quite the show!...More
