The tour was wonderful, we saw whales on both our whale watch tour and snorkel tour. The crew was accommodating and very knowledgeable about local ecology and conservation efforts. We definitely would book another tour with the Pacific Whale Foundation on future trips

Good people and well organized trip. Not over crowded. Food was ok. Not bad and not exceptional. A little disappointed in the one drink only rule on the way back to port. At least allow two after a long day.

The crew was fantastic, the cruise up the Maui coastline and back was breathtaking, and to top off the afternoon we found a large pod of spinner dolphins. The scenery alone made the cruise worthwhile, and finding the dolphins was just the icing on the...More

No, they don't offer scuba. They do have snorkel tours, sunset tours, and private charters, even, I believe, a stargazing cruise. Check out their website for options.
