You are guaranteed to see whales, and we did. Sometimes one at a time, sometimes multiples, but all amazing and beautiful. Couldn't have asked for a better day to view these enormous creatures.

Amazing experience

All my friends and I enjoyed it. The boat ride was comfortable and we saw many whales, one of which even jumped out of the sea right in front of us. I think it's an amazing experience. The most important thing for choosing this company is that they are very professional and they are dedicated for eco protection.

I liked the Whales and the helpful descriptions. But many people were not wearing masks or keeping distance and there was no enforcement.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2020
Aloha and thank you for choosing to come out with us whale watching. I appreciate you taking the time to let us know about the lack of mask enforcement. We have instituted very strict covid safety protocols and procedures for staff and guests, so it's disappointing top hear that those guidelines weren't enforced by our staff if they were aware. I have forwarded your feedback to our Commercial Operations Director and Eco-Tour Manager for review and you can rest assured that this will be dealt with as customer safety is and always will be our number one priority. Thank you again for bringing this to our attention.
