This was an amazing experience to add to our honeymoon in Maui! The food was fantastic and accommodating to my allergies! We cannot express enough how much we loved being able to eat dinner while watching the whales and sunset!! Aaron, Niko, and Mario were fun and great at anticipating our needs, making sure the cups were always full! Thanks!!

This was a fun sunset cruise. The crew was great, good food & we saw LOTS of whales. There were about 45 people on the boat but it didn't feel crowded. Drinks were flowing freely.
