  • On our first day in Maui we decided to go snorkeling. While we wanted to go snorkeling, we also wanted to see Maui and Lanai from the perspective of the water that surrounds the islands. And we were.....  more »
  • Highly recommend this tour, if you’re in Maui. They are fun, caring, know the best places to snorkel, and are great at spotting wild life. Whale season had not started officially, but we found a...  more »

  • I had the opportunity to get on a boat with Kevin and Amanda with Makai in February of 2019 for a whale watching tour. I can not give them enough praise. Super cool people, full of great information, and they work their butts off to give you the best shot at seeing magic. We lucked out and had some really amazing whale activity, but I'd go out with them any day. Can't wait to get back to Maui and do it again!
  • We did the mid-morning whale watching on February 23rd. We packed a lot of things into our Maui trip and this was one of the true highlights. Our Captain, Sergio, and environmentalist, Amanda, were both great. They really cared about getting the best views and made sure nobody's view was blocked. We saw tons of whales as close a you can get. We even saw a mom and calf repeatedly breaching. It was great! The boat is the perfect size and speed. You see other large boats cram packed with people who can only see what's right in front of them, so if the whales are on the other side, they miss out. We could see 360 degrees the whole time. We also saw other smaller catamaran type boats that were not as crowded but also didn't have the speed or range to get close to the whales. If (when) we go back I would book with Makai again for sure. Thanks for the adventure!
