Friendly crew and lots of whales! Reasonable price. Raft is small, but they don’t fill it with too many people so there’s plenty of room. Highly recommend

The whale watching was epic. We spotted whales almost immediately after leaving the marina. Scott and Shannon were well informed about humpback whales and also upfront about what was unknown. They provided a personable tour.
It was a truly memorable and I would book with them again.

I spent over a week whale watching with Maui Adventure Cruises. I had a wonderful time. The boat is a 45' Rigid Inflatable Raft. Very safe and stable and an excellent platform for photography.
You are watching whales in their natural habitat. Every trip is fun and different. On one of my trips the whale came close to the boat. It's called a mugging. The Captain turned off the engines and we sat until the whale was done checking us out and was a safe distance away from the boat.
The captain's and naturalists are safety oriented and do all to give you a smooth safe ride and a great view of the whales.
Shout out to Captain's Jeremiah, Andrew, Scott, Jay and Carlos. Naturalists Olivia, Meredith and Shannon.
Mona takes your reservations and like everyone at MAC she is kind and helpful.
Maui Adventure Cruises had a very large part in making my vacation special and memorable.

This company is a scam...stay clear! So many other companies to take you on whale watches. They constantly cancel their trips and then keep your deposits. We have been fighting with them for 2 months to reimburse us. Fair warning!!

Unbelievable trip!! Never seen as many close up breaches in one trip in all my 20 yrs of Whale watching.Cap Andrew was an excellent helmsman & spotter-at one point we were cruising alongside 5-7 large males & 1femaleTwo of the breaches were so close that the wake touched the side of the boat-as the Cap said” as close as you’d ever want get to a whale breaching.We also had 3 males swimming & diving in synch alongside the boat for about 10 mins.As I said UNBELIEVABLE!! & if I didn’t have the video to prove it-I wouldn’t believe it myself..

Spectacular!!! The whale activity was more than we had anticipated. We all enjoyed the boat and how close to the water level we were. It definitely brought us closer to the whales. The crew was knowledgeable and shared so much information. I'll definitely recommend this company to my fellow crew members at my airline.
Thanks again.

Amazing whale watch with Captain Jeremiah and naturalist Olivia. Watched a mama with her baby for at least an hour. Baby was continuously breaching and playing. Mama was playful beside him and 2 males were competing for mama’s attention. Lots of interesting male behaviors including a crucifix block. Lots of other whales around too and even some bottle nose dolphins with a baby dolphin. It was amazing.

Amazing day! 2 trips with Captain Zack and first mate Laura. Comp pod and amazing activity. Best company on the island. Zack and the other captains know what they’re doing and how to navigate the boat for best viewing.
