Pacific Whale Foundation, Maui Reviews

  • We had a great day whale watching with an ethical company. We were recommended this company due to their hard work they do outside the tours. The tour is a great way to keep the foundation going and a very enjoyable experience. One of our highlights on Maui. Very informative guide and the boat had plenty of room to view the Wales from every side. If you don’t get sea sick- try to grab a table at the front for the best spot

  • Great place to go whale watching. This is a non profit that puts its funds back into the community. We saw quite a few humpback whales while on our 2 hour excursion and we even saw a baby humpback. The crew was polite, informative and fun. The captain did what he could to minimize the rocking of the boat while putting us in the best position for viewing whales.

  • Great company to go whale watching, snorkeling, and dinner cruise. They utilize their profit to do whale research and tracking these beautiful creatures as they return year after year. They have tremendous programs and even have volunteer opportunities from giving time, helping with operation duties, and community events. When you choose how to enjoy your time in Maui, you should help not only our local residents, but our aquatic life as well. Enjoy PWF!

  • The whale watching tours are fun, but I feel there is a major push to embellish every occurrence of a whale sighting. I understand human psyche, but it's almost like a news report, that is "hyped" to get people to feel a certain way. You know what I mean...the sensationalized tickers that read across the bottom of the news screen that serve no other purpose than to keep people watching. It sucks, and it's come to define "journalism" in general, and "news" reporting always. The people are cool and I appreciate what they do, but I say, lose the BS. Enjoy your time and everyone else will hopefully enjoy it too, You can't make people happy by "hyping" everything up. I, as well as most humans should understand that whales don't act on command in the wild. What you experience is to be enjoyed with the understanding that it may be great, or not much may be seen. Let's be real...

  • We did the discount whale watch tour on 1/30/2018. The tour lasts 2hrs. The boat launched at 2PM. We were close to different groups of whales almost the whole time. We saw whales doing every possible stunt, including about two dozen breaches next to the boat. The educated Naturalist guides provided very interesting facts on the hump back whales. It was a great nature experience along with an education. It was fun to watch the excitement from the young children on the boat when they saw the whales. You don't have to get up early to see the whales active like you have to for some other animals. Whales are active anytime. The waters were rough with winds at 15mph. The Naturalist said whales seem to be more active in bad weather for better communication. A down side of the rough weather was that a couple older adults got sick. They were moved to the back of the boat where it does not bounce as much. We decided to take a tour the same day we booked it. We booked on line. There were only a few tickets left, so plan a day ahead if you can. The $33 tickets were discounted 10% for buying on line. A $4.50 fuel surcharge was added. I recommend Pacific Whale Foundation for whale watching. They have tours out of Lahaina and Maalaea. There tour boats from other businesses watching the same whales. Those boats were not nearly as nice.
