    Recently joined a whale watching boat in the morning in Honolulu with Pink Sails. The boat was nice and clean and we were very lucky with seeing very active whales- witnessed two breech!
    Must warn you that the boat becomes very bumpy and wavey and cold from the wind so make sure you wrap up!!
    First time ever whale watching and was a great experience:)

    The dolphins were so cool and the sea turtle too. The crew was so nice and welcoming. I appreciated their enthusiasm for the work they do and wanting all of us to have a fun time. I think the expense is worth the experience.

    We had a great time. Staff were very nice and friendly except Johnny. He’s the reason I’m giving a 4 star review and not 5 star. The dude was rude and had a bad attitude. The other staff were fenomenal!!!

    The ship was great, and we were able to see whales pretty frequently. The coffee was terrible—apparently the grinder had broke so they tried to grind the beans with a blender. The breakfast (either French toast or Loco Moco) was good. There was a brief announcement of whale facts near the end of the tour. I recommend starting out with some whale narration at the beginning of the cruise. That would be helpful to give context for the tour.

    Great guides, lovely morning boat ride. We didn't see much of the whales. Last moment tail as the dove from a distance but it was a lovely experience anyway. We tried twice and same experience both times. Hopefully others have better luck with the whale sights but the experience is great regardless.

    If I could give them 10 stars I would! What an amazing company and crew! We’ve traveled all over the world and always take a snorkel trip, Captain Adam, Heather and Sam were a blast!!! One of the best boat trips we’ve taken! They helped and guided us from start to finish! So fun to hang out with, so knowledgeable and truly made the trip amazing! We saw 10+ turtles and even a couple whales! They even gave us dinner recs for Oahu and Maui where we are going next and some great info and activities to check out when we head to Maui next! If you’re planning on heading to turtle canyon or any other activity they offer, definitely go with dive Oahu! Thanks for making our trip that much more memorable and fun!

    The whale-watching excursion was great fun. The crew was friendly, chatty, and knowledgeable. As the whales arrived late to the party, the crew offered to extend our trip so we could get a couple more visits in. Even if the whales stand you up, it's well worth the cost just to get out on the water and enjoy the views of Oahu.

    This was the best dolphin excursion we have been on! The crew members were all very knowledgeable, friendly and fun. We got transportation from Waikiki to the boat and back. We were able to watch a pod of Spinner dolphins for 10-15 minutes, and they came right to the boat. The snorkeling was fun, and there was a photographer on board who took lovely photos we could buy after. Highly recommend this excursion!

    The company canceled my booking in the morning. I agreed to rescheduling it to morning cruise, but there's no sighting of whales or dolphins. Very disappointed. I'd like my money back.

    This was the worst whale watch I have ever been on. We left the harbor at 10:00 AM - went out about half a mile, did a circle in the harbor and went back to the dock - we were back by 11:15. Did not even see a dolphin and it did not seem like the staff cared if we saw anything or not. I would not ever book another tour with them. They offered to let us go out again for a $7.00 fee - Um NO! I would not pay another dime to do this excursion.
