My wife and I traveled to Alaska and did whale watch excursions the past two yrs, never before did we experience the up close and personal as we did on our “Sea Maui” sunset cruise! The crew was friendly and gave us a wonderful evening! “The Smith Family / Orlando Fl”

Not doing this again.

I wish there has been more seating outside as many had to stand for the whole cruise or go inside which didn’t have the views. The food was mediocre as compared with other dinner cruises taken here on Maui. The captain was great!
Wonderful evening

We loved the cruise. The crew really made it the best. I just felt bad for the people who didn’t get seats. That was a long time to stand.
Fantastic Ocean Cruise

Michelle_W, Feb 2024
The crew were all very nice and helpful. The music was live and very enjoyable. The whale watching was incredible. The food tasted great!
Five stars for all involved!
Todd_U, Feb 2024
Saw literally tons of whales, probably around 15-20 in various sizes. Crew was universally excellent, friendly, and helpful. Food exceeded expectations, as did the live music from Johnny. Altogether, a wonderful time with wonderful people!
Great evening out
Natalie_M, Feb 2024
Great crew and a small group limit made for excellent views and space for everyone. They served great drinks, including champagne for a toast at sunset. The food was tasty, too. We had an incredible whale watching experience. The only drawback was the screaming kids that wanted to run around, but that’s on the parents, not the boat company.

This cruise was cancelled two days before the cruise date. One would think that Viator would be aware of this and would stop sending me a constant Barr of emails asking for a review
Wow with the whales!!
Jeffrey_B, Feb 2024
Watching the mother whale teach her baby how to slap the water Knowledgeable staff who took time with passengers Respectful distance we kept from the whales, and awesome experience.
Great experience
Robert_W, Feb 2024
Great experience! Crew was very nice. No complaints whatsoever! Sunset was beautiful! This area of Lahaina was in great shape. Hoping they can keep rebuilding the rest of the town.
Great whale sightings
MICHELLE_M, Feb 2024
The check in process with Pete was quick, details about safest way to get on the boat were precise, Captain Linda was professional, very receptive to following the whales to get us the best experience and the crew was diligent about keeping the drinks full and the food was ok.
Best whale watching experience!
Julie_F, Feb 2024
Captain and crew were amazing and entertaining. We saw a ton of whales thanks to an experienced captain. Fantastic experience!
The crew was attentive...
David_F, Feb 2024
The crew was attentive crew; The skipper seemed to know where the whales were hiding which resulted in wonderful views; The meal was excellent and the variety of drinks was excellent as well. A must do.
Wonderful cruise
Tricia_H, Feb 2024
This was great fun, and we saw lots of whales. Had a good time talking with the other passengers. Definitely recommend.
Great crew! Great music!...
Katherine_A, Feb 2024
Great crew! Great music! Whales were all over. Just a wonderful trip. There was a good amount of space for everyone and the crew took excellent care of us all
Worth it!
Ally_J, Feb 2024
I thought the cruise was going to be up and down the Maui coast, but instead we stayed around the area of departure tracking down whales! So not what I expected but welcome nonetheless. It was a very friendly crew that were very attentive to keeping the (strong) drinks flowing and providing a good time!
Much more than a sunset cruise! We would go again today!
Chastity_F, Jan 2024
100% worth every penny. We went yesterday, Jan 25th. Crew could not be nicer. We saw SO MANY WHALES! They’re all in videos, so I couldn’t attach them to review. Captain went everywhere in the bay watching whale fins as we sipped. This is not just a sunset cruise- it’s good music, cruising, sunset, drinks, food, whale chasing. Beautiful, clean, safe boat. Lots of seating/tables up top. Surprisingly, the drinks were delicious- not watered down sugary syrups and such. Crew kept coming back again and again asking if we would like anything else. Food was much better than I expected-chicken, fish, and beef options. Husband and I both said we would book the exact same tour and go again today. Thank you for a beautiful time whale chasing, eating, drinking and cruising!
Maui boat cruise
Margaret_S, Jan 2024
The whales and the view but the food was awful . I was sick all night with a stomach ache . The beef was flavorless and hard . The salmon was fishy . Rice and veggies were warm and were ok . Very disappointing
So good, don't hesitate- book it!
Justine_U, Jan 2024
Great boat, great crew/company! So worth it and wish we had gone sooner! The whatever it takes mentality wasn't lost on us down to shuttling us in cars to the location where the boats were moved due to the currents. Captain Phil, Nick and Ronnie were all so accommodating and we got lucky to see so many whales that's to Captain Phil's great navigating.
