This was a very enjoyable dinner cruise that gives you a nice view of the coastline, The quality of the dinner was really good and the staff actually waits on you at your table as opposed to a buffet. I would recommend this for anyone.

been a member for over 20 years, and this outing to Honolua was marred by Trilogy, but Pac Whale made the best of a bad situation, only Trilogy was to blame for the other boats mishap

We have taken other snorkel tours to Molokini and they were just as good, but not so crowded. I decided to try this group because of the foundation work they do and the good cause. First you have to meet in their store to sign...More

I am not aware of scuba, scuba, or snorkeling with PWF. However, our many trips with them have only been for whale watching; it is possible they do other things. Check out their very good website.

Aloha, the sunscreen we provide on our boats is from a brand called Hawaiian Sol. It's biodegradable and reef-safe, mahalo!
