We did not see whales or dolphins but that wasn’t the issue. The captain/ crew were not personable and acted like they didn’t really want to be there. It made it have a cold feeling/not fun. There wasn’t an effort to make it a great experience for the guests at all and I have been on several similar trips where it was a blast and guests were treated much better. For this price they need to step it up.

No sea life, horrible motion sickness

We didn't see any sea life except a few fish, and the motion sickness was really bad for all of us despite taking dramamine. I vomited early on and wound up sleeping the rest of the trip. Didn't miss anything though.

A Favorite Activity

This was one of our favorite activities. Our group of 6 ranged in age from 16 to 52. Captain Jonny dropped us a pin that made finding the boat easy. Seeing the whales was so exciting. We felt we were well taken care of and that we got a real value for our money.

The staff made our experience fun. Although we didn't see whales - we saw dolphins. The catamaran was clean and there was plenty of room for all passengers. It was very nice experience.

Awesome experience

We saw the whales a few times, the crew was alert and point at them right away. Johnny, the captain, texted ahead with very clear instructions. The crew in general was very helpful and friendly. They offered us water and kept us safe. We loved the experience and highly recommend.

Great atmosphere, great crew, yummy drinks, and whales!

We had a great time on this tour! The catamaran is small and intimate, and feels less commercial than some of the others we saw at the marina. The crew is great, the drinks were yummy, and most importantly the whales were amazing! We weren’t sure we would see any since it took about 1.5-2 hours for them to show up. But they finally did! Even though it is hard to guarantee seeing any wildlife, I still highly recommend. If nothing else, you get to soak up the sun with an amazing vantage point of Honolulu and Diamond Head while on the crystal blue waters of the Pacific. The whale sightings were just a bonus!
