With this tour, the boat was smaller with only 38 passengers. They decide where to go considering conditions and the smaller boat. We did Molokini from 2 different locations and closer to the shore to seek turtles. The 3 crew members were excellent and happy to teach, explain and took good care of us. Plenty of food and drinks too. Having it go to a good cause was the cherry on top. My husband and I highly recommend this tour.

Molokini Wild side is just Awesome!!


We went to Maui and did some research about the Molokini tours, and decided to go with PacWhale on the Molokini Wild Side Eco-Adventure. And that really exceeded our expectations! They were very careful about the safety of the crew and customers, crew was friendly and helpful all the time, very knowledgeable, cleaning and sanitizing the vessel every 10 minutes. Food was great throughout the whole experience! We got lucky that day and were able to spot bottlenose dolphins, spinning dolphins, whales, sea turtles and all the beauty that Molokini has to offer. It was amazing and well worth it! We had a blast!
