We were very pleased with this cruise. The boat was quite nice and not crowded at all. The service by the crew was attentive and... and well organized. The provided transportation was efficient and a welcome perk. We highly recommend the cruise. more

This is a whale watch worth signing up for. The Captain is an utter delight, and her crew were outstanding! The atmosphere on t...he boat (best looking one in the harbor) was relaxed and friendly. Instructions were given quickly, and we were off. We saw quite a few whales, with Captain & crew pointing them out. The food was a big surprise - it was excellent, and there was plenty of it. It was advertised as “appetizers”, but the chicken wings and ribs were so good, you could make a meal out of them. They also had quite an array of alcoholic beverages to offer. We’ve been on whale watch boat tours before, but this one was the best ever. My husband & I wholeheartedly recommend this tour. Our only complaint was that it wasn’t long enough, but that was because it was so enjoyable we didn’t want it to end. more

Outstanding trip. Very knowledgeable crew and really looked after everyone. The lady captain was superb, buffet great, but as an... English lady I did have to ask for a knife and fork, which everyone found highly amusing. Would definitely recommend, the best trip of my holiday. more

Captain Nick and the crew of the Alii Nui was outstanding! They were kind, friendly and very helpful. They all made us feel so sa...fe and comfortable. The buffet of appetizers and the selection of drinks was impressive and made for a very pleasant afternoon. We really did not notice how many people were on board which made the atmosphere very light and cheery. It did not take long for Captain Nick to spot a mother Humpback whale and her calf frolicking off the coast. Their antics made for some awesome pictures and wonderful memories to take back home! We had a wonderful time and would love to come back and do it again! more

Annette

Let me just say Alii Nui treated everyone right even from the second we boarded the boat! A full spread of hors d'oeuvres and... open bar - created a light, fun, exciting atmosphere . Captain Nick was great - awesome personality ! All the staff was super knowledgeable and very friendly. I'll say this- I could sail on this whale watching tour everyday and never get bored with it- it was that fun! Saw a mother and baby double breach too! Highly recommend whenever you're in Maui ! more

Rachel Forrest
