Makai has small groups on their boats and it was perfect. Less than 20 on the boat. Great guides and informative afternoon trip.

We went at the tail end of the season and saw a lot of whales. The captain was working hard on finding the whales - it looked like he was using his phone and calling other boats looking for whale activity. IT WORKED. We even had one stop where the momma whale, her calf, and a male whale swam right by our boat, and then after passing one of them breached. That was super cool.

The boat was large enough to fit 20 people without feeling like 20 people and was very stable on the water. Amanda was the crew and she knew her stuff about whales and made sure all the passengers understood whale watching etiquette.

I recommend these guys, it was a great experience at an affordable price. Plus, I spoke to other people who used another company that went at the same time we did, that didn't see any whales.

Makai Adventures 2 hour whale watching trip was GREAT! Their boats are nice, spacious and stable. Crew was great! They brought us to a number of different whales, we even saw a couple of whales breach. Very good company and great stable boats, instead of a raft.

Kevin and Kel (sorry if I got the name wrong) were very nice and accommodating. They did their best to find those whales and they never failed us. Good job gentlemen!
