Pac Whale Tours are a must on Maui!

Every time we've been to Maui we have taken at least 1 Pac Whale trip and it is always fabulous! This year we did a Whale Watch Deluxe from Ma'alaea and a cocktail sunset cruise from Lahaina and both were excellent. We saw (and heard) many whales, saw spinner dolphins, turtles and flying fish. The naturalists are well educated marine biologists and do a great job educating passengers. The captain went out of his way to be sure our trip was exceptional. Food was outstanding, especially on sunset cruise. Every trip is different so don't assume if you've done 1 it will be the same. Snorkeling trips have always been outstanding as well.

I always like to do my souvenir shopping in the Pac Whale Foundation store - high quality merchandise and I know proceeds go to a great cause.

Thanks PWF for always making our visit to Maui memorable!

3 Hours of Whales!

We have gone on several whale watches with Pacific Whale Foundation, and find them to be the best on Maui. This year we chose to do the Whale Watch Deluxe since it is a 3 hour tour, with only about one-half of the capacity booked to be sure to get excellent views. We were not disappointed. We saw whales from the time we left the harbor until we returned.

We were entertained by at least 3 babies, breaches, and competition pods. The crew was informative and helpful, food was good (and plentiful), and a crew member gave me an insight where to stand to get the best chance for a photo.

All in all, this was money well spent, and it goes to a worthy cause.
