From the time we stepped into the van for our ride to the walk until we returned to our hotel, our guide Joel made our experience amazing. His knowledge of the island and of the vegitation was outstanding. We highly recommend this tour.

Makai Adventures did a wonderful job of getting to where the whales were. We saw many whales and calves breaching and hearing the whale song was once in a lifetime experience. Kevin and Gina are great guides and always kept us safe. It was a fantastic experience!

Close up video of mom and calf

It was a smaller boat and we were a group of 20. We found about at least 5 set of whales probably more and lucked out on a mom and calf who were pretty active and gave us good shots. Gina and Sergio were very helpful too with trivia and getting us sailing to a good spot and they even put a mic in the water so we can hear the whales sing. I love the small group it was definitely worth it. I recommend you try this company. I think its easier for a small boat to get to the whales and it does not intimidate the whales as much as the bigger vessels

Great crew pointing out whales within minutes. Was with viewing distance for more than 75% of cruise time. Great breaches. A dozen different Whales. A 40+ minute video of a mother training her calf (baby). Dozens of breaches.

Love having the small group and not having to fight for a space to see the whales. The naturalist did a great job and the captain was great at finding the whales. It was however whale season. The small speedy boat gets you to where the action is quicker!

Gina and Sergio gave us a great tour and we were pleased with the whale experience, the insight and knowledge provided by Gina, and the ‘fair warning’ Sergio announced, as there were high winds...we had a very bumpy wet return to the slip!

We had a great time on this 2 hour tour. The boat had 20 watchers. It was easy to see the whales. We were very fortunate to see many whales and one came very close to the boat as we drifted. Our crew, Sergio and Gina, were excellent. They answere questions and were very helpful. I highly recommend this tour.
