We saw 30 if not 31 dolphins all around the boat doing flips and stuff. During our adventure we stopped at... More

I would highly recommend Maui Adventure Cruises. The crew was awesome and really nice. We saw a huge pod of dolphins on the way to our first dive spot and hung out with them for a little while which was awesome. Both snorkel spots were clear and there was a ton to see. We had a ton of time at... More

This was a very fun adventure with boat captain Marty and first mate Johnny. We launched from the Lahaina Harbor on a large comfortable RIB (rigid inflatable boat) and zipped across the channel to Lanai. We saw spinner dolphins on the way to & from the snorkel spot plus stunning views of the steep cliffs of Lanai that come right... More

This attraction has earned mixed reviews. On one hand, they do a wonderful job of finding and getting you close to whales. The naturalist on board shares wonderful insights on the whale population. At other times, the captain ignores the company's own safety rules. Quality seems to have slipped from previous years.

After getting through a check in process in which we were hassled by the check in agent, we got our tickets for the boat and boarded shortly. Took a ride over to Lanai and though we were blown out of a few snorkel spots, we did get in the water at Shark Fin which was amazing. On the ride back... More

We cannot recommend this group strongly enough. While the perfect weather we had that day helped, the crew (Carl and Rob) made this trip exceptional with the combination of great sheltered snorkeling spots, running in the midst of spinner dolphins, views of the cliffs of the backside of Lana'i, history and legends of the island, and just general good time...

Had a very good time seen a lot of whales. The water was a bit choppy when we got a long way from the shore. The boat is smaller than some of the whale watching boats, a lot faster than most, got a little wet and was hard to take pictures because of the movement. Very good tour would recommend... More

My wife and I had a total blast on our whale watching trip with Maui Adventure Cruises! Started off the trip with cruising up Ka'anapali beach with a large group of Spinner Dolphins. They were so much fun to watch as they just swam along without a care in the world! But after all this was a whale watching trip... More

What a picture perfect day. We saw whales breaching, spotted dolphins jumping, and sea turtles all in one trip. Not to mention the phenomenal snorkeling as the icing on the cake. Our captain and assistant were absolutely wonderful. Our two teens were just in awe of all of the sea life.
