Testimonials

“Thank you so much for everything! It was all perfect!”

“For us, a private charter with the Pacific Whale Foundation was the perfect venue for a wedding ceremony… We really wanted the venue to be creative, different, unique and above all, private… We found the privacy of being on the boat with only our guests made it very comfortable and we were so excited to give our guests some of the their fondest memories ever.”

“The fact that we used Pacific Whale Foundation gave us a great feeling knowing that we were doing our part to help support the Foundation’s efforts and research. We can’t say enough good things about the Captain and Crew, they were so perfect! They were knowledgeable, friendly, patient and full of Aloha spirit. They were so much fun with all of us.
