The crew were personable, informative and as passionate about the tour as we were. I would absolutely recommend this whale watching tour to anyone visiting Oahu.

Prior to booking our excursion we reached out to North Shore Catamaran to ask if we should bring a life vest for our son...they stated one would be provided. Unfortunately, that was not the case.

A very nice relaxing boat ride looking for whales. We did see several "spouting" water and I saw one tale flip out of the water. You have to be very attentive not to miss them. Our captain was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs.

Nice trip, lot of whales close to the boat. Great explainer! We could also snorkel and while snorkeling we could listen the whales singing.

Kept getting her a fresh bucket, water, ginger ale. We only saw a couple of whales, but the people that were on the Catamaran with, said they saw... More

We chartered the boat for 2 hours. The captain was late and we got started 30 min late and then he came in 30 min early. We never saw any whales and he made no attempt to leave the area to try and see any whales. This was the worst whale watching trip of the 15 trips we have been... More
