We loved our whale watching experience. We were fortunate enough to become part of a Maui Mugging! A mother whale and her baby approached our boat and four adult males pursued. We were captured on the ocean for over an hour watching a magnificent display of mother nature in the making. Captain Robert was also so kind to personally send us some pictures he had taken of us with whales in the background. AMAZING!

This was our first trip to Maui (me & my boyfriend) and the whale watching trip just made it that much more spectacular!! We saw so many whales...mama whales with their babies, males whales chasing after a female whale fighting to be her was amazing! I have some great photos and video from that day! The company that hosted the excursion was great as well! They put safety first and were very respectful to everyone. Mahalo!!
