Staff was great! We would do it again. I am adding a bunch of words to fit a minimum. Apparently I need to keep typing
Fun boat adventure for the whole family

This was SO MUCH FUN! The crew was fabulous (all female!), the drinks were readily available, and the whales were insanely active. Honestly, we lucked out on how many whales were around. And Captain Linda kept us on course to view the most active pods. Sea Maui is a very professional operation. Everyone we interacted with from the person who signed us in to the bar tender was friendly and informative. I typically steer clear of bigger companies, but I'm very glad I booked this tour. There were a lot of people on the boat but it was not overcrowded at all. We actually met and interacted with several other passengers. We also had 4 kids with us (ages 11-9) and they were able to move around the boat, order themselves (nonalcoholic) drinks, and keep themselves entertained. Everyone had a great time!
Sea Maui is THE BEST!

The crew was incredible! They made us feel welcome and immediately put us at ease. Laid back, attentive, and friendly. The food and drinks were very good. And the whales … Wow! What a magical experience!

Saw so many whales. Ate great food. Molly and her crew were great! Sunset was beautiful Would go again!
Fabulous experience 10/10
Kelsy_G, Mar 2023
The crew was wonderful! Charlie knew her stuff and informed us about the whales lifestyles, calfs and marine life, Molly was a fabulous and personable captain! I can’t remember the third blonde girls name, but she was also wonderful. This experience was great. It was just my husband and I, we didn’t know anybody, but we made great friends had a wonderful time and the whales did not disappoint. Weather rerouted. Our location a little bit for entry and departure, but didn’t miss a beat, I would recommend this to anybody who wants to be on the water getting some fresh air on the sea and enjoying the marine life!

It was so magical to see these whales jump out of the water! Such a beautiful experience. The crew were friendly and the views around the ocean were incredible.

Captain Phil and his crew were amazing!! Saw lots of whales, good drinks, good dinner, and great atmosphere! Give this crew and their cruise a 10!!
Outstanding Experience!
James_M, Feb 2023
We loved every aspect of this cruise. The crew were friendly, customer focused, highly trained and experienced. What was advertised to be a dinner & drink cruise quickly became a remarkable whale-watching experience as well.
Great experience!
Susan_L, Feb 2023
We had a fabulous trip! The all woman crew took excellent care of us from start of the cruise to the finish. The whale activity, obviously time of year dependent, was incredible!
Amazing views, excellent staff, great food and overall a 10!
Terra_L, Feb 2023
This was our first time in any part of Hawaii and this sunset cruise was one of the highlights of our trip. Our all-female crew were fun and interactive yet professional keeping everyone safe. We were surprised at how good the food was and with an open bar everyone was kept happy. Clouds covered parts of the sunset but as it was whale-watching season, most of us were too busy concentrating on all of the whales surrounding us to notice. Our crew made sure we saw as many whale sightings as possible explaining everything they could regarding whale behavior. These girls rocked. I would definitely recommend this sunset cruise to anyone, in fact for the value you receive, I would gladly have done this twice over the $400 we spent on Luau.
Definitely A Great Trip

The staff were helpful and lively; the music was great. The drinks were strong and the food was delicious! Will definitely book this trip again!
