Ultimate Whale was referred by locals and it was a great 2 hour adventure finding and cruising alongside the whales. This is a reasonably priced trip and the crew ensures that you are in a position so that all can take pictures if so desired....More

The crew, especially Capt. Rachel were very knowledgeable about the humpback whales. We found a group of 5-6 whales vying for a female's attention and watching the whales breech, puff up their jaws, and slap the water was amazing. If you are able do the...More

Even if you only see a whale from afar, the boat ride is worth the price of admission. However, the guides are knowledgeable, informative, personable and have a network with other whale watching vendors so they are constantly receiving data on current whale sightings. We...More

Hi can anyone tell me what the chance of seeing Dolphins in May is? ( for your Lanai trip)? Also is May better for snorkelling at Molokini or Lanai?
25 April 2017|
Answer
Response from _Team_Ultimate_ | Property representative |
Aloha, We see dolphins 95% of the time on our Lanai Snorkel trips- Both Molokini and Lanai would be good to visit in May, Lanai does offer more snorkeling spots with more marine life and less crowds due to its location.
