Amazing snorkeling trip!
This was an amazing trip we had as a family. The staff working there, Amy and Emma, were so nice and great to be around. The trip was great and even though most of the people there were adults my 12-year-old daughter had lots of fun. We got to see fish and turtles, coral and dolphins. We had a great time!

Perfect whale watching experience
Apr. 2021 • Family
Amy and Pat were perfect whale tour guides—engaging, informative, fun and safe! We appreciated their love and respect for the animals. We learned a lot and I found the whole experience an awesome combination of exhilarating (seeing the whales!) and relaxing (speeding over bright blue water). While every tour of course has different sighting we saw at least 8 whales including a delightful calf and mama.
We had done a tour a few years back on a bigger boat and I highly recommend the smaller boat experience!
Thanks for a great experience!

Our trip was awesome and so were Amy and Sara as our captain and guide. Its the end of the season so not a lot of activity but they were great in finding them and telling us about the whales while we were looking for them. It was a great trip.

Wow! Amazing to have that close encounter, especially since the whales are protected in Hawaii and we have to wait for them to approach us, making this even more special! Mahalo for whale watching with us!

The best experience
Mar. 2021 • Couples
This was hands down the best part of our trip to Maui. My husband and I actually booked the same excursion two days after our first whale watching trip because we loved it so much. The size of the boat was perfect and crew was extremely knowledgeable. We saw numerous whales; even had the privilege of whale watching under a beautiful rainbow. One of my favorite memories of our second whale watching experience was a large group of spinner dolphins that swam near our boat for awhile. Unforgettable experience. Highly recommend!

Amazing whale watches and best crew!
Mar. 2021 • Friends
Amazing whale watch! I can’t stress this enough — DO NOT FORGET TO TIP YOUR CREW! These wonderful, lovely crew members (along with a majority of hospitality workers in Maui) make their living off of tips. I’ve gone on 4 whale watches this whale season with Ultimate and it’s amazing every single time! Whether the whales are super active or not, the crew always makes it enjoyable and fun. Also don’t forget that the crew doesn’t control whether or not a whale breaches. It’s always a beautiful view, regardless 🙌🏼

Our family had an amazing time on the Whale Watching tour with Captain James and Guide Mindy. The crew was informative and great at answering my 11 year olds million questions. We had whales straight away out of the harbor and for the next two hours they put on a show. Highly recommend if you have a chance hopping on one of these small group tours.
