The Boat: Malaialena

We Stand Out Above the Rest

One can’t ask for a more stable and safe vessel than the Malaialena. With the rigid inflatable tubes and the single aluminum hull, this boat is very stable and safe when it comes to ocean boating.

  • 60% of the boat is shaded…which is a very nice and comfortable luxury to have on a boat. The option of shade is always a plus when out on the ocean
  • Upper viewing deck that seats 4 people
  • 8 speaker sound system. Microphone interpretation and a great selection of music
  • Underwater hydrophone: listen to the whale sing…LIVE!
  • Standard safety features: Sonar, Radar, VHF radio, fire extinguishers, coast guard required life jackets.
  • All captains hold current and up to date licenses, CPR/First Aid certified, and are trained in marine mammal education and conservation.

Common Question

  • Chevron down What are the other cool features about your boat?
  • Padded seating inside the boat. Not only can you ride on the side of the tubes, but there is protection and comfortable seats inside our upgraded zodiac-like boat. For those who may have a bad back or are weary of a bumpy ride…rest assured…we are a very smooth ride and the padded seats only make the ride more luxurious!

  • Chevron down Do people get sea sick on your boat?
  • Seasickness rarely happens on our boat because it is stabilized by the inflatable tubes and cuts through the water very nicely with the single deep-V hull…however…we do tell people that everyone is different. As a precaution, take a non-drowsy Dramamine pill an hour before check in…that’s our recommendation for those prone to seasickness.


“Their trips are wonderful for families with kids and adults. The food is great, the information they provide is very interesting, the boat is first class and the crew couldn’t be nicer. Don’t miss going out with them.” -Ocean Protector Trip Advisor Feb 2016
