    Great experience! Saw many whales! Guides were very informative, explaining many whale facts. We were able to eavesdrop on the whales vocalizing and singing songs, thanks to a special microphone the guides lowered into the water. Hearing the whales was so special!!

  2. Jacob Stutzman

    This is a MUST do in Maui! This was such an amazing opportunity and experience! We were able to see multiple different groups of whales including a group with up to 15 whales and a baby whale learning how to jump out of the water! The boat was very nice with cushioned seats and a shaded roof. The Captain of the boat was very nice and did an amazing job with getting us up close to where the whales were at. The captain’s assistant was very knowledgeable about the Whales and answering our questions about them. They made the adventure fun!

    Great guides and smooth ride! Knowledgeable, courteous, and personable service. We went on the VIP tour. I loved the low, speedy raft-style boat we were on. We went mid March and saw lots of humpback whale action. I highly recommend Ultimate Whale Watch for in season whales watching and year round water adventures!

    My friends and I did the watching & snorkelling package. Lily and Lacy were perfect hosts. They were very patient and attentive to everyone, learning our names and keeping an eye on how far from the boat we were.

    They provided delicious banana bread, fruits, cream cheese, cookies, and non-alcoholic beverages.

    They also provided all the necessary gear (fins, floaty noodles, floaty belts, snorkel, and mask). Wetsuits are also available for rent at $10 each.

    Even near the end of April we saw a few whales from a distance, lots of dolphins, and beautiful coral, fish, and turtles.

    Highly recommend

    I can’t say enough good things about our tour with Ultimate Whale Watch! We went on 4/1 and I was worried we’d missed the busy whale season. But thankfully that wasn’t the case! We saw multiple mom & baby whales, some with males in pursuit! Our captains were so knowledgeable. You could tell they really love what they do when you saw their excitement in seeing the whales in action. It was a truly unforgettable experience. We enjoyed the smaller raft type boat and felt we always had a great view of the whales.

    What a wonderful experience with Emma and Sarah! They made our snorkeling adventure extra fun! They took us to two wonderful spots where we were able to encounter over 150 dolphins and tons of beautiful sea turtles! Also, their knowledge on each animal and its habitat was impressive. My husband and I highly recommend this tour! Make sure to ask for Emma and Sarah! Thank you so much for the wonderful time and great memories.
