I booked this charter because of its large size for my mother going along, not knowing the ocean conditions. Although the boat was nice, it was harder to see the whales with all the people and size of it. It also seemed we stayed focused on one set of whales for most the time

Really enjoyed the friendly crew and the focus on respecting the whales. (Getting so much great whale spotting time was also great, but of course the crew doesn't necessarily have control over that--it's up to the whales!)

We saw 3 breaches up close and several further away. Saw baby whales, a lot of whale tails, and a lot of aggressive behaviour from males chasing the females. Very knowledgeable crew. Non-profit and money goes to a good cause. Easy access from Lahina harbor.
