Amazingly beautiful one is awestruct to gain the opportunity to see these graceful mammals in their annual migration pattern here to the waters of Maui. Truly spectacularly impressive show of mammoth proportions the Humpback Whales show their powerful agility and it leaves no room for competition. Although these the largest mammals some the size of ten African Elephants they move weightlessly like musical notes coming to life with the strumming of a mandolin. The experience is priceless and I am but one traveller so amplify this by the biggest number you can imagine like you're holding a handful if sand now amp it to that of all the sand on all the beaches in this world and that's the magnitude. Take away what you will from my review and experience if given the chance, pull the trigger!

The 6am charter ia the best! Not crowded. Beautiful sunrise. Lots of whale activity. Staff were friendly, informative. I'd highly recommend.

We would do this again & again. Absolutely amazing experience. Waters were a little rough due to weather system moving in. We went at sunrise and were rained on some, but also saw the most magnificent double rainbow. We saw many whales of course! All around us - blowing and showing body parts above water - and a few great breaches as well. On our way into harbor, one active whale kept smacking its tail up & down at least a dozen times as if waving goodbye. Perfect experience with wonderful and informative staff!
