We tried 2 different companies for whale watches and Captain Steve's was by far the best. The crew was knowledgeable, interacted and answered questions and took extra time to follow a mama and her calf. Highly recommended!

Loved everything about this trip. I believe that James was filling in for Steve and he had a very smart gal with him. Don't remember her name right now. Just very professional and fun. The raft is the only way to go.

Lynn and Jack were fun and engaging. Great combo of a fun fast ride on the boat, snorkeling, seeing Lana’i sights from the water, and animal encounters.
