This is a wonderful whale watching tour. The crew is super knowledgeable and entertaining. We spotted a bunch of whales and had a great time. We would highly recommend this tour! Sam and Ryan are awesome!

Great whale watching cruise

Had a great time going out on the whale watching catamaran. Free drinks was a delight as well. Getting to see and hear the Mama and her calf was just wonderful!

FAQ

Q. Can I go into the water on this tour?
A. No, this is strictly a whale watch sail adventure that doesn't include swimming.
Q. Will you get wet on this activity?
A. You shouldn't get wet, unless you decide to sit at the front of the Catamaran on the netting. A whale might splash you but it's doubtful.
Q. Are photo or video services available?
A. No, professional photo or video services are not available, but you are welcome to bring your own camera, just make sure it's strapped on.
Q. What kind of boat will be used?
A. Sea Smoke [Departs from Anaeho'omalu Bay]: The Sea Smoke has won several awards, including accolades for voyages across the Pacific ocean. Incredible sailing experiences and ample deck space (58 feet long by 28 feet wide) make the Sea Smoke a favorite choice for excursions of all types.

Manu Iwa [Departs from Anaeho'omalu Bay]: The Manu Iwa is the go-to vessel for smaller group excursions. Its rear staircase ladder provides hop-in, hop-out access for amazing snorkeling trips. At 50 feet long, there is still plenty of space to relax and enjoy some sunshine on the water. Holds up to 41 passengers.

Alala [Departs from Kawaihae Harbor]: The Alala perfectly combines the best of a snorkel adventure vessel with the smooth comfort ideal for relaxing sunset cruises and oceanside soirees. At 65 feet long by 30 feet wide, this full-service catamaran can comfortably accommodate groups of up to 75 people. The vessel also includes functional restrooms, cabin space and other premium amenities.
