The Boat

We Stand Out Above the Rest

The Malaialena is a 30 ft Rigid Inflatable Boat, the type of boat that is considered one of the safest (hence why the coast guard uses them).

She is a fun and comfortable ride with padded seats, shade, an upper viewing deck that seats 4, AND a bathroom on board!

She has an 8 speaker sound system which is wonderful for playing the Hawaiian tunes and listening to humpback whale song during our whale watching tours (note we have a great hydrophone on board).

There are 2 ladders in the back on the boat and when lowered, guests can easily climb back onto the boat after a fantastic snorkel experience with manta rays or turtles. Oh, and did we mention we have a bathroom on the boat, that’s a big deal!:)

Our vessel “Malaialena” can carry a maximum of 20 Passengers. We do have a Minimum requirement of 8 ticketed passengers in order to take the boat out and confirm all of our trips. If you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to ask. If you book a trip and your tour does not currently meet the requirements, we will call and notify you the day before. We will try our best to accommodate you by either rebooking for another day or giving you a full refund. Thank you for your understanding. Mahalo.”

We look forward to taking you out on an adventure of a lifetime!

Meet A HUI HOU, a RIB boat that operates from Puako Boat Ramp. In COVID season, she operates with no more than 10 pax, unless it’s a private charter all from the same accommodations.

She is a 30 ft vessel with twin yamaha 250s. She is Coast Guard inspected annually, which means she is very very safe. She also will get to where the whale action is happening the quickest! She will operate morning whale watching (when available), afternoon whale watching and manta night snorkels and dives.

Meet Sea Esta who can accommodate affordable private charters, the wildlife encounter snorkel, and even fishing!
