Incredible experience

It was a marvelous experience seeing the whales. The guide was fantastic with his information. Very informative about Hawaii and the whales. We saw lots of whales that day and fairly close up. On the boat we had the options of being at the bow, along the sides, inside out of the weather, or auto high. It was very helpful.

We saw many whales. The slated bench seating is a little uncomfortable. Can buy drinks, soft drinks and snacks. Must wear masks. Can walk around the boat.

We saw tons of whales and Captain Dave shared tons of whale information with us. Being on a larger boat gave us the opportunity to see the whales from up above. I appreciate that he didn’t drive us up on top of the whales.

The Maui princess was amazing. We spotted whales almost immediately and and got to stay out longer because we were near a pod that were challenging each other. The captain and crew were great and kept us entertained throughout. They were great with social distancing rules and we felt comfortable and safe.
