We have been going out on Gemini for years both for snorkel adventures and whale watching. Their crews are experienced and have been on the boat for years. Their naturalists crew members are as knowledgable, if not more so, than the experts on the Pacific Whale Foundation vessels. They always make sure you have a good time regardless of the... More

Never felt sea sick. a nice continental breakfast on board during our 2 hour AM excursion. Saw lots of whales so was well worth the $! Would recommend Gemini as they limit number on... More

What an experience! Whale watching! Snorkeling! We have used this company over the past 15 years, at least 5 times. Each time, they just get better! Last week we went whale watching ... it was phenomenal! We had whales everywhere, around us, under us, in front of us and behind us! The boat, the crew, the captain ... it all... More

Incredible 2 hour whale watching trip off Kaanapali Beach. Numerous whales close enough to hear the spouts. Was able to capture o photo of rare double breach! Followed a pod of spinner dolphins. Observed a mother whale standing on her head with her tail up nursing her baby. There was a very knowledgeable naturalist on board to answer any questions... More

We sign up this whale watch at least once, and sometimes twice a year during our annual February trip to Maui. Today's whale watch was amazing! From a great crew and wonderful and TONS of whales, our trip was once again sensational. Dirk is a knowledgeable naturalist. Jennifer, Russel,and Captain Jay are just as excited about each whale watch as... More

Strange how we chose Gemini. It was a Sunday during whale season. Many boats take the day off or run limited. This was the only boat going out at a convenient time. I am so glad it worked out that way. Whales, dolphins, turtles, snorkeling, sailing, nice people, only boat with a window in the hull, over all great experience.... More

A friend recommended this charter service. We were not disappointed. If you are interested in whales, take this charter 1st as you may not need a Whale watch". The snorkeling was also fantastic! Staff were friendly & helpful. It's a small family owned business & shows. We noted locals & repeat customers on our trip.

The crew were extremely friendly and knowledgeable and were happy to answer all of our questions. We saw a TON of whales on both trips! They got us as close as was legal - and we... More

The brochure will tell you all the bay's and cool places you may snorkel to but the reality is that trade winds will dictate just what you will do. In this case it was one stop to see fish we could've seen from the beach. The trip is really less of a snorkel tour and more whale watching. We stopped... More
