Worth waking up for
David_W
, Apr 2021
We saw lots of spinner dolphins and later a mother humpback whale and her calf. The crew was friendly and informative. Covid-wise we felt very safe although it's outdoors and we were on a moving boat so the likelihood of getting Covid is pretty much 0. We highly recommend this excursion if you're there during humpback whale season.

Everyone was very personable and fun. They all had a sense of humor and made the trip fun. They also were very informative, they were able to answer every random question my daughter asked. We went at a hard time to find whales and we still found some and followed them around for a while. I recommend going on a tour with them.

We did the 1.5 hour morning tour and it was perfect. We saw whales about 20 minutes into the trip and continued seeing them the whole time. Great friendly and knowledgeable staff and free mimosas !!

Awesome trip and seeing whales was something we wanted to do for years!

The crew supporting this cruise from start to finish was fantastic! Within 20 minutes of the cruise starting the captain spotted a mother and baby humpback whale. We moved in that direction and then sat and watched them for the next hour. It was an awesome sight and very educational as they would disappear for 3-4 minutes until they took their next breath. High recommend this cruise during whale season. We were on the tail end of it, but they found us whales to see!

This was a great excursion. It was the perfect duration and we saw whales right next to the boat. In addition, the mimosas and whales were the perfect combo. Our naturalist was very knowledgeable. We loved it and it was worth the drive.

Great morning with lots of whales

Went Monday, March 15th, and we saw lots of whales. We saw 1 half breach and saw many spinner dolphins, too. They did change the location that we sailed from, which was further for us, but it wasn’t too bad. Weather was not an issue, so not sure why the location was changed. They were friendly and knowledgeable.

Aloha, Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback about your Wake Up with the Whales Cruise. We're so happy to read that you enjoyed the trip, and the service and information provided by the crew. We apologize about the departure location change -- our tender boat (the boat we use to shuttle everyone to our catamaran) at the original location you reserved was vandalized a few days before your trip. The vandals left it inoperable -- so we had to switch the cruise to a departure location with a dock to board from. We hope we'll get to share more adventures with you the next time you're in "our neighborhood" -- hopefully from the departure location you choose! Mahalo and a hui hou!

The ride was very educational. Also, our guides/boat hosts were very friendly and attentive to our snacking and drink needs. The boat was also a nice size where everyone was able to socially distance and still get a good view. We also saw so many whales which was the best part!
