Maui is one of the islands that we always include on our trips. For one it is very beautiful but our main reason is to join the Pacific Whale Foundation on our one of their whale tours. The adventure has never been a disappointment. Every trip out we have seen plenty of whales and on the way back in from our last trip we had a whale breach right off the side of the boat. Highly recommend this adventure. The crew is very knowledgeable and very professional.

Have done many activities through the Pacific Whale Foundation. Love the sunset dinner cruises. We can see the whales which is absolutely amazing.

"Ocean Spirit Honolua Bay Snorkel Sail" - This is one of my favorites so far. Beautiful, roomy catamaran and only 4 families on board. Personal service, funny captain, nice first mate. Kari was the best, she focused on my 11 year old daughter who also wants to be a marine biologist. Very informative and learned a lot about the whales. They know everything! Got to see a pod of whales and tails. Go on this one!

We chose to go whale watching with Pacific Whale Foundation, because they genuinely care about whales and are an ethical company. We did the tour in March and were lucky enough to see lots of whales at quite close range. We also heard the whale song, which was a disconcerting emotional experience! The staff were very knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommended.

Did this last year - great time . Crew was wonderful and they made sure to keep you safe and give you all the "rules". They constantly were on the lookout for whales. Unfortunately we were there at end of season and only saw the tip of a fin but they did chase after some sightings, to no avail. I would definitely go out with this company again.

These guys are awesome. They are legit all about the whales in a non-preachy way. When we went on a whale watching tour with them, they said something about the speed of the boats, and the chances of hitting a whale go up if you go over a certain speed. Although it's not a rule, they don't go faster than whatever that speed is, because of the whales. They have the interest and the passion to make change. I definitely recommend this company for anything whale relate. And 100% of the profits from their stores goes to their science programs!

We love visiting Maui every single year and this is always on our must do for us! Great fun atmosphere, friendly customer service, yummy yummy food on their cruises. Very centrally located in the island. Between their expansive gift shop, educational tours, and their cruises - tons to do. Somewhat affordable given island pricing. Would definitely recommend for tourists or locals alike won't be disappointed at all :)

The absolute highlight of our holiday to Hawaii in September 2013 was the day we spent cruising out to Molokai with the team from Pacific Whale Foundation. The boat was small and not as flash as the others sailing out that day but we had the best guides and I can guarantee we saw more fish, turtles and amazing places than any other boat that day. The staff was so knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife we were seeking. They just knew where to go for awesome turtle sighting and we had so much time to swim with what seemed like 30 or 40 turtles in clear shallow waters.

The team all talked about their experiences around the world in areas like the Galapagos Islands and taught me so much about the wildlife but the sustainability that they work towards which is a passion of mine. They cooked us a fabulous lunch on board and no request was too difficult for them. This was the best day on the water I have ever had and it was all thanks to our Hotel for recommending these guys and the fun crew on the Pacific Whale Foundation boat that day!!
