Whale Watching

Although you can observe these gentle giants from the shore – the best way to really get up close and personal with the whales is through a whale watch Private Charter. The most common whale sightings include humpback whales that migrate down from cold waters of Alaska to Hawaii every winter to mate and to give birth to their calves. Maui is known to be one of the best places on earth for whale watching. Join us for the most extraordinary whale watching experience!

If you do one thing in Maui this is the one you should do!
Definitely a 5 star experience! Starting from booking until the moment we came back they took care of everything. We decided to go snorkeling and they know the best spots.The staff were so accommodating, even my girlfriend was happy and she is hard to please. She loved how upbeat Jessica was, the day pretty much felt like we were out boating with friends. We saw turtles, dolphins AND whales. One of the most memorable trips we’ve taken. Thank you guys for your Aloha!

All I have to say is WOW! LOOOOVED IT! Definitely the best day of our trip. This is the nicest boat in the harbour, caught our eye right away. The reservations lady was helpful, they asked us about our preferences on juices and other special requests. We had 6 people in our group, all adults. Wanted to snorkel and go to Lanai, and got to do both!

The crew consisted of 2 people, Captain Rich and Jessica. Both are SUPER friendly and have great personalities. They had fishing equipment and we got to do some fishing, my boyfriend was happy because they took care of the bait and everything. We saw dolphins jumping over a whale! It was so cool, so much closer than Ive ever seen before.

Its BYOB, which was great for us because we usually tend to run up the bar tab, didn’t have to worry about that. They provide mixers and food. It wasn’t just one little sandwich, they had snacks available throughout the trip too. If you want to go snorkeling definitely go earlier, the water was calm and the reef was like something you see on TV in those traveling shows.

When we go back to Maui we’ll definitely be booking with this company again. They truly understand 5 star service. Worth every penny. I would highly recommend to everyone, you will have the best memories and pictures to take home!

We were in Maui the beginning of December and were so fortunate to spend the day on the Sea Monkey ! From the first contact with Karen (who arranged things so perfectly for us) to watching the sun set at the end of our 8 hour charter it was heaven! First and foremost Jessica and Rich made us so comfortable and took such phenomenal care of us…we were never in need for a single thing. Rich is an excellent captain and extremely knowledgeable about the islands and the wildlife. He told us lots of Hawaiian history and he knows every good snorkelling spot there is! Jessica is an absolute delight and we couldn’t have asked for 2 more lovely and competent people to enjoy the day with. I especially enjoyed snorkelling with them.We’re counting the days until we can spend another day in paradise with them both on this gorgeous boat (I especially loved the warm water shower for after snorkelling!). Please please please do yourselves a favour and enjoy a day on the Sea Monkey!Visited December, 2016

We spent Xmas day on the boat with Rich and Jess . It was by far the most outstanding and enjoyable experience our family has ever had in the many trips we have taken to the Hawaiian islands.
From our initial dock greeting by Karen , she set the tone for the amazing service we received on the trip. Great food , whales swimming up to and under our boat , fantastic snorkelling and even good fishing to round out the day made it a truly wonderful Xmas to remember. The entire company deserves a big 2 thumbs up for providing such a wonderful experience for the family. We will certainly be telling our fellow Canadians.

What a day! Prior to our trip we chatted with Karen who made sure we were all set. She greeted us when we arrived, very pleasant, very welcoming. Captain Richard and Jessica took us out, we were interested in whale watching and snorkeling. Within 15 minutes of leaving the harbor we had our first of many private viewing of whales. We saw mama with her calf playing in the water. It was amazing. Snorkeling was fantastic, off the backend of the boat easy off, easy on. Richard was a great guide and shared information about fish and sea creatures. He even removed some trash from the reef floor. What a great steward of the ocean and reef. Jessica prepared a great lunch and took excellent care of us all day. Definitely a do again for us! Jerry and Patrice

We had a wonderful time aboard the Sea Monkey. Everyone was very professional and knowledgeable. Karen worked with us to plan the excursion. Rich was our captain and Tawny was our first mate. They took great care of us from start to finish and we saw amazing views of the Maui coastline. We also saw flying fish, a couple of sea turtles, and rescued a preying mantis at sea. We will make sure the Sea Monkey is on our itinerary for our next trip to Maui.
