Perfect Day of Whale Watching

Captain Josh and 1st Mate Kelly shared much information about the dolphins we seen on our way out. Josh seemed to know right where to go. We sat for a few minutes and spotted whales. He maneuvered the boat to get good exposure to them and not interfere with them. We spent a good 1.5 hr moving around while watching a mother and her calf.

The Captain, Josh and 1st Mate, Kelly were very knowledgeable regarding the whales. They shared all sorts of facts with us. We got to area that they knew the whales would be and we soon spotted them. Josh maneuvered the boat so we could watch the baby and the momma. We spent about an hour and a half. It was very magical! We got to see dolphins also and learnt that they were sleeping while they were swimming.

This was the most amazing whale watching tour we have ever taken, this is why: 1) the boat is new, 360 view from upstairs, super comfortable and big and no one got sea sick. 2) the captain and the crew are so cool, kind and thoughtful. 3) We saw many whales, it was overwhelmingly beautiful! No words to express the feeling when you this many whales in one day. 4) In the end we got to see lots of dolphins, that was so unexpected and amazing! 5) the crew were very generous offering snacks and drinks. You’ll love it so much that I wouldn’t be surprise if you book more tour with them! We ended up booking the manta ray eve snorkeling tour plus the snorkeling with dolphins, too! Have the most amazing time in Hawai’i and support this local and rad company! You’ll never forget this experience! 🎉
