Why Choose Us?

There is something special about each one of our boats that separates Hawaii Ocean Project from any other boating organization.
Stability & Comfort

All of our vessels are large and stable making for a smooth sailing experience for the whole family. Not to mention, the beautiful 360° panoramic views of Maui.

Service & Experience

Whether you are snorkeling, whale watching, or going on a dinner cruise, our mission is to provide you with the best service and experience possible. All you have to do is make the memories that will last a lifetime, we’ll do the rest.

Conveniently Located

Departing from Lahaina Harbor, we are conveniently located for guests staying on the west side of Maui, or, for those who do not want to depart out of windy Maalaea Harbor.

Family Friendly & Affordable

We value ohana (family), and want you to feel like you are a part of ours.

Training & Safety

Having been in business for over 40 years, we know Maui’s ocean waters. Winds and currents can change quickly, which is why your safety is of our utmost concern. Our experienced captains and crew are trained to keep you safe, both, in and out of the water. Our captains are United States Coast Guard Certified and all of our captains and crew are CPR and first aid certified.

What Our Customers Say

Hawaii Ocean Project, with over a million guests over 30+ years, has a 5 star rating on TripAdvisor and Google Reviews.

Great For Families and Even Babies

There is a lower deck that is sheltered from wind and sun with chairs

Beautiful Boat trip and some Whales too

We are early in the season to see whales so there is only a few until Mid Dec or even into January.

The Best Whale Tour Ever

This is the best whale tour I have been on, I have never had the opportunity to see as many whales as I did on this tour.


After operating exclusively out of Lahaina Harbor for decades, we barely made it out during the fires. In fact, our boat Kaulana, the large stable catamaran, was the last boat out of Lahaina during the fire.
Now we’re operating amazing adventures out of Ala Wai Harbor, right next to the Hilton Hawaiian Village and Waikiki beaches and hotels. So book your adventure today and you’ll have a blast while supporting Maui boats and crews who escaped the Lahaina Fire. Thanks in advance!
