We went on the 2 hour Whale Watching Boat Ride. The captain did a great job getting us near as many whales as possible. We sat in the front of the boat and had a difficult time hearing the captain and the whale expert over the PA. That would be my only improvement suggestion. Special shout outs to Blossom, who was super sweet and helpful when checking us in, and Michelle, who coordinated assisting my mom who has mobility challenges with boarding and checked on us throughout the trip. They are both keepers HOP!

Captain Jill and her crew were so friendly and fun. Their conversations were a riot and they had tons of good info to share. They got us in close with a group of 4+ whales and followed them around for about an hour. This crew definitely has passion and pride in what they do and it shows.

The staff on the cruise was friendly and smiling. The boat itself wasn't much fun, it kept smelling of diesel many a times, they really need to fix their exhaust. The vegetables in salad didn't seem fresh. Luckily the main course was served hot, so it was edible but the vegetarian option could have been better. The juices didn't taste fresh either, which is especially bad if you don't consume alcohol. The so called bar didn't have much material to work with, so the mocktails weren't good enough. They should consider offering hot beverage as well given that the cruise lasts long after sunset and it can get chilly. Would highly recommend carrying a jacket. If you are going as a couple, it can get a bit odd as you will be seated next to another couple on a very small table for four! The only reason I'm giving a 3 star instead of a 2 is because the views of the sunset, ocean and Maui are breathtaking. We also got lucky to be going out on a full moon night which made it better.

I took the 2hour whale watching cruise and unfortunately had a bad experience.
While the narration by the crew at the wheel was great there was an experience that made be feel biased against - I ordered a popular brand of snacks on the cruise and was made fun of by the serving crew member due to my accent. I am not a native English speaker and I feel the crew member’s behavior made fun of my background and is an insult to passengers who speak English as a second language. Given the variety of tourists Hawaii attracts, I would have thought such a discrimination would not have happened here.
Not recommended if you not a native English speaker!

We had the most amazing whale watching adventure this morning🐳😎 !! I want to especially thank BLOSSOM who was working at the ticket/reservation window. There was a mixup with our reservation and she worked with us and went the extra mile to find the solution. I just really appreciate her patient, kind and professional attitude. She is a credit to your organization. Thank you again. We had an unforgettable experience🌴🌸😊
