Super staff, nice boat. We saw lots of whales and learned the meanings behind their behavior. And when I was sick (I'm very prone, and was the only one) the staff was terrific.

I went on two whle watch trips from Lahaina. One on the large boat and one on the raft. I washable tosee the whales great from both boats. The guides are very knowledgable and fun and friendly. By booking trips with Paciic Whale Foundation we support protecting and learning about these magnificent creatures.

We actually booked our tours on line for the Lahaina Harbor location. We read they were the best and liked that they worked to preserve the whale habitat. This was our first time whaling and I came prepared to take photos. Weather was not great - but the whaling experience was wonderful. Knowledgeable, helpful people and the whale sitings were plentiful. It was raining quite a bit during our trip so we decided to go a second time. Both trips were fun and our guides worked hard to make sure everyone had a great experience. If you are going whaling, go with this group!

We have now taken 3 tours with Pacific Whale Foundation.
Well run, well conducted tours.
The whale watches are a major hit, with the hydrophone adding a great sense of wonder to what you're seeing. Note: take e sunrise cruises better suits, and make sure you get the catamaran.
The snorkel cruises are well Run, safety above all. Molokai and Lanai are amazing.
We became members, you save money on the cruises, and you get boarding priority.
Great family fun.

Every time we come to Maui we make a point of going whale watching. This was our second time with this organization, and we'll do it again. They guarantee you'll see whales or you get to return for another try -- not a problem because you'll see MANY of these amazing creatures -- perhaps dolphins, too! We appreciate how much they care about the creatures of the sea, too -- their excitment each time one was spotted was like our own excitement, and yet they do this daily. They try to stay out of choppy water for comfort sakes, but if you don't do well with a little motion then stay on shore and spot from the beach. This was great fun, though, and very affordable!
