  • "Could not ask for anything more!" Reviewed March 30th 2017 My husband and I went on the Hawaii Ocean Rafting. We had the best guide, she is from Alaska and follows the whales, she is so knowledgeable. We saw a pod of 6 males "fighting" it out for the female’s attention. It was awesome! Capt.

  • Fabulous family trip Reviewed December 25, 2016 Our family of 10 was overjoyed by our experience. We sailed for four hour out of the Maui Harbor and snorkeled and saw whales. Crew and service were wonderful. Great food. Can't wait to go again next year.

    We were going to lanai snorkeling but the trade winds picked up and the ocean was very ruff so we just set there for about a hour watching all the whales breaching and then went down to the west side of Maui to snorkel. Got to see a lot of fish and swim with a turtle.
