For over two decades, Ultimate Rafting has awed thousands of guests with Lanai’s wonders. Our dedication to exploring the best Lanai snorkel sites has earned us recognition as one of the top rafting trips on Maui.

Such an incredible experience!!! Gabe and Clint were fantastic guides with an amazing balance of knowledge, patience and humor. Whale watching is one of my favorite things to do when visiting Maui and I will only be coming back to Ultimate Whale Watch. The boat was small so you felt like you were on a special quest. Can't wait to return!! Thanks for an incredible experience!

This was a last minute add on to our Maui trip! The raft, I think, allowed the whales to feel less intimated, and ended up hanging out right at the raft! The staff members definitely made it fun by stealing another boats whale. Apparently, Whales love attention. Who knew! For the price, and what we got out of it, this is the BEST whale watching tour in Maui.

My wife and I did the 3 hour whale watch with Brittany and Heather this morning. It was an amazing experience from start to finish. The three hours absolutely flew by. Brittany was a great captain and Heather did an amazing job sharing so much information about whales. We would highly recommend ultimate watch over the competitors. The smaller boat and crowd allow for such a great experience on the water. We might try to get another trip in this week!

We chose Ultimate because it was affordable but we were blown away by the professionalism and our experience. We’ve been on the $$$ excursions and this trip matched in quality. The shorter 1.5 hour trip was perfect for our young boys and it we definitely got our money worth. The smaller boats also meant we got great photos and a personal experience. The crew was friendly, knowledgeable, and fun! If you’re looking for a great whale watching experience this is it!

This is the ONLY way to go whale watching. Been doing tours with this company for several years now. I would do it every day if able! The boats are great, the crew is great and very knowledgeable. Cannot recommend them more highly. No 2 whale watches are the same, no matter who you go with, but this company does a great job. Go early in the morning it's a great time to be out on the water with great views!

We went for a whale watch the first day they had available Dec 1st, since it was our last day in Maui. We were treated with quite a show from the young male whale! We saw a couple more whales as well, but we knew it was early in the season and were very pleased with what we saw! Our group liked being in the smaller boat. The crew of our boat was amazing, answering any and all questions we had about whales and anything else in the area. Super friendly and a true respect for the animals we were trying to view as well. Would highly recommend!

Maybe it was bad luck. The current was too strong in the spots that our guides, Hanna and Peter, wanted to take us to, so we went to some alternate spots....
