Although the process to get checked in for the cruise seemed a little discombobulated, once we got on the cruise, it was just what we needed: super relaxing cruise, mellow, yummy apps and beautiful scenery. The ukelele music and serenade by a local Hawaiian named “Boo,” was a pleasant surprise, and a major highlight! FYI, this was a no-alcohol cruise, which was fine by us— but we learned that it was ok to BYOB; bought a few bottles of beer in Lahaina and brought them along.
I highly recommend this low-key, incredibly enjoyable sunset cruise!

Excellent trip! Pacific Whale is always my #1 choice! We had a great time, learned about local marine life, and most importantly learned about how we can contribute to helping our oceans.

Snorkeling time in the water was less than 30 minutes - food was fair at best. PCW refunded 35%
without requesting it but the trip was very disappointing!
