Amazing trip!

We had a great time at their whale watching cruise and was lucky to be able to see a couple of mommy whales with their calves. The whole crew was amazing and insightful, giving us all kinds of information about whales and their lifecycle, migration pattern, etc..very educational and fun at the same time. And they’re very accommodating to children, encouraging them to ask questions and learn about these great mammals and the marine life. I wholeheartedly recommend this cruise and the foundation. There are a lot of places that offers discounted whale watching but I’m happy to know that by joining their cruise, I played a tiny little part in supporting the great work that this foundation is doing to help these amazing creatures.

Wonderful, informative experience!

My husband and I took our honeymoon on Maui and were lucky enough to plan the trip during Humpback whale watching season! Through other online reviews I knew I wanted to go on a cruise with the Pacific Whale Foundation so my dollars could make a difference... our PacWhale whale watching cruise did NOT disappoint! We decided to go on the discounted afternoon tour since that's really the time of day we thought we'd be better about arriving on time after exploring other parts of the island, etc. Every staff member was very friendly and helpful, the woman who emcee-d our tour was super informative. The staff is great about answering questions and the great part about a whale watching cruise is that everyone else on the boat is pretty much just as excited to see any marine life as you are! We enjoyed our first cruise so much that we decided to go on a second cruise toward the end of our trip! Different staff members, same great time! Both women who emcee-d our cruises seemed just as amazed as my husband and I were at how many whale breaches we are, and both said that our particular cruises were above average whale watches. Great for families, too-- they did special teaching moments for the children onboard and let them help with some equipment. We would certainly go on another cruise with PacWhale and highly recommend them!
