I booked a whale watching tour via GetYourGuide.com. Booking and checkin process was easy. All employees were super friendly, we did a 2hr tour and saw so many whales 🥰🐳 I know that not every day you can have such luck as we are watching nature. But we were so lucky and I’m so grateful for this experience. Stephen brought us to places where we can get a closer look and Renee was the best whale tour guide giving so much information on whales. I could see that both of them really enjoy what they do :) thanks for this experience, I’m a bit overwhelmed :) For the mountain girls & boys and the ones with sensitive head and stomach like me…take some pills against nausea as it is a little boat and the waves are moving it heavily. But it is worth the torture :) (btw seemed like no one else had issues so it was nothing the company can improve - maybe just offer ginger before start :)

Very informative and experienced naturalist on board talking about the whales and what to expect. The boat captain knew exactly where to position the boat so everyone had an exceptional view of the whales. His knowledge about his boat and how to get from point A to B in an expedited way with the sea conditions was top notch.

We had an amazing experience with Dive Maui and the 2-hr Whale Watching experience! The captain and her co captain were fantastic and so knowledgeable. We saw so many pods. They knew where to go and then kept moving to find more. It was an amazing experience and we learned so much! We were a group of 6 adults and all of us were in awe. Take some motion sickness precautions if you tend to get motion sickness, you are in a small boat in a big ocean. Highly recommended~
