We had a great time listening to and seeing a few whales! We brought our kids (2 and 4 year old) and they did great on there too! The staff were so nice and helpful too!

Photos do not do it justice! The Captain and crew were amazing and we seen 4 breaches, a baby calf and a large number of whales. More than we could have imagined. Easy process and would do it 100 times more! A must see and a great Company!

Saw lots of whales

Nice experience and saw lots of whales. Note hut to check in is behind a resort and you will get your feet wet getting on the boat. Wear flip flops or water shoes. Wish I had known that ahead of time. They offered drinks and snacks on board.

Aloha, Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback about your Whale Watch Cruise. We're so happy that you enjoyed the trip and got to see so many whales! You are absolutely correct that our Anaeho'omalu departure location requires walking through water at the shoreline to board the shuttle boat ramp -- and we do make note of that in the confirmation email guests receive after booking. Our Kawaihae departures board directly off the dock, so those boardings are completely dry. We know there are a lot of activity providers on the island and we're honored you chose to spend part of your morning with us! Mahalo and a hui hou

It was a beautiful morning and the crew was very knowledgeable! The open bar and snacks were a great treat!! We saw numerous whales! My grandsons, 6 & 9 were too young to enjoy the adventure so I’d wait a few years if you have youngsters. I’d love to do it again!!

Great boat and crew, disappointing whale encounter

Very nice boat. Super friendly and knowledgeable crew. Beautiful day. Did not catch a glimpse of any spinner dolphins. Humpback whaling season had just began. Saw a few spouts and two tails from quite a distance at the end of our ride. For cost, did not meet my expectations.

Aloha, Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback about your Wake Up with the Whales Cruise. We're appreciate your comments about your interactions with our crew and are happy that you liked the boat. Of course we're sorry that you didn't get to see a lot of Humpbacks. As you pointed out, it's just the beginning of our whale season though, and we're doing our best to find the Humpbacks who've arrived along our coastline. We hope we'll get to share another adventure with you the next time you're in our neighborhood. Mahalo and a hui hou

Whales backs floating
Stacey_J
, Dec 2021
Learned an incredible amount from the guide speaking. Guides voices were easy to listen to, engaging, and sincere. Boat was larger, good quality, and comfortable. We saw the whales backs floating in water and swimming thru top of water. Whales feel safe near boats, so most sightings as very close in distance. Super cool.

The crew had fascinating information about whales and their behaviors; the team was very organized and attentive, and the ocean tour included snacks and beverages. But the very best part was on the first day of the whale watching season, we got several great looks at a juvenile humpback. So exciting! Would definitely recommend.
