Pacific Whale Foundation
With the aim of education and protection of marine life, the Pacific Whale Foundation's staff of marine biologists offer whale watches, snorkeling trips to Molokini crater, dolphin encounter trips, and sunset cruises. Cruises take place in low-emission, energy-efficient boats outfitted with whale-protection devices, as well as comforts for the passengers such as (on some vessels) a galley bar, interior cabins and shaded areas for sun protection, freshwater showers, and armchair seats or low-frills 'rafts' that take up to 30 passengers. Trips range from dinner cruises, which last about two hours, to seven-hour whale watches.
Becoming a member of the Foundation is a money saver if you plan to do more than one trip.
