I read an article online about several Whale watching tours in Maui and based on that review, I chose Captain Steve's. We were on our honeymoon and this was my husbands first time to Hawaii so I really wanted a special experience going on this tour, and boy did we get it! We had a mother and calf come right up to the boat and show off for us. It was amazing, I could have leaned over the edge and touched the calf they were so close! There are no guarantee's on how the whales will behave, but what I can tell you is this. 2 days later we got a free whale watching tour on a bigger ship and the experience was TERRIBLE. Not the service so much, but the the boat itself. Captain Steve's made very little noise and was intriguing to the whales, where as the other companies boat seemed to scare the whales away, and I don't blame them, it was very loud. Captain Steve and his assistant were very knowledgeable and it was obvious that they actually cared about the welfare of the animals as well. I highly recommend them and will tour with them on my next trip for sure!
Great time. Whales performed and crew was just the right balance of real, informative, and fun.
Before we even got on the boat, another captain had glowing praise for Captain Steve. That's always a good sign! Thanks for one of our trip highlights!
