Ally Gammill
Exactly what we expected- crowded boat tour where we got to see a few whales. Very friendly staff and a great experience altogether.

Tracy Shoales
Fabulous tour. Wish we could have spent more time with the whales, but like all good things it comes to an end. Would loved to have seen breaches, but we had lots of quick sightings.

Wendy Wright
Marsee was wonderful in helping me!

Hiroshi Noda
Excellent activity

Vanessa Mancos
Great tour at a great price. Friendly and helpful staff. Only saw a couple whale tails, but just being out on the boat (especially the roof deck) is fun!

Rachel Crookston
This was a great tour! We all got to see whales right away, the ride was smooth and the weather beautiful. We had so much fun and going through Tom Barefoot's Tours was the best. I accidentally booked the wrong day but one call and they had it all fixed for me! Thank you Tom Barefoot's Tours!

A nice cruise but too short.  We took the breakfast cruise that is just too
short.  By the time they get out to the sanctuary it was time to turn back.
&nbsp;Saw one whale at a great distance. <br />
IF you want to see more whales for free, go to Maka puu lookout and do the hike.
&nbsp;Saw about 10 whales from &nbsp;there for free.

Kristen Walter
Boat was really nice, staff was friendly. We saw NO whales which I know happens. I do think however that the "whale check" policy should be reevaluated when it's the end of the season. We were told we could come back starting In January when the season starts back up which is not a feasible option since we traveled from the east Coast of the US.

Steve Smith
Not great

Eric Haddan
We had a great time. &nbsp;We really enjoyed our breakfast and the hospitality
on the cruise. &nbsp;We did not actually see any whales as I guess they don't
like dreary overcast mornings &nbsp;They gave out vouchers for a free cruise so
we could go at a later time, but we had declined as we saw some whales the day
before on another excursion. &nbsp;I would definitely do this again.
