Too many people on the boat
This was an amazing trip, we saw whales and dolphins. A lot of people got sea sick this day, not sure what you can do about that, my family had no problem with this.
Support whale research by going on their tours!
This trip was AMAZING! I took motion sickness pills just in case, but the ride was very smooth and the water was quite calm. We rode the boat to the island of Lanai and saw a whole bunch of whales on the way. The water at Lanai was crystal clear and so calm! It was perfect. We saw so many fish, an octopus, and a sea turtle :) We were also served a light breakfast and BBQ lunch. On the way back they couldn't find any dolphins but we stopped several times to watch the whales. We even saw a mama and baby whale. It was so much fun, and the Pacific Whale Foundation is all about preservation and is a very good foundation. A lot of their proceeds go towards conservation and education, so it's not JUST a tourist thing.
great staff on board. good food. shame about the dolphins although it wasn't evident that they tried very hard to find them. good equipment and the boat was very well laid out and user friendly. informative about marine life and very cheerful staff.
Boat trip was fine. Snorkeling was better in front if my hotel though. Wouldn't do it again or recommend it. Staff did a great job and food was fine..
Had a great time! We would do this again.
1 star for sea life support and Tom's barefoot, they provide great customer service. Boat was over crowded, lunch very crappy, snorkel was meh (better by my resort), no dolphins to be seen or any attempts by crew to find. Maybe it was a bad day to find large sea creatures. But if you want great snorkeling you can find it all around maui, this excursion was all about marketing. Only good thing came out of it was hopefully our money goes to ocean life support.
