Know More about this tour

Departing from Lahaina, this Maui whale- watching cruise promises to be an experience you'll always remember. The reliable and comfortable vessels get you quickly to each whale sighting, with an enclosed main cabin and upper observation deck to ensure dry, excellent visibility.
Maui is the place to whale watch to see humpback whales in their natural breeding area. Every year from mid-December through early-May, the humpback whales make their home in the waters surrounding Maui. The whales migrate close to 3,500 miles (5635 km) from their Alaskan summer feeding waters, to the warm waters of Hawaii where they mate and have their calves.

This tour is seasonal and operates during the whale migrating season from December through to May.

  • Very knowledgeable captain and crew who took us close to the colony of whales. Highly enjoyable

  • Having the naturalist on board really added to the experience, telling us about whales and their habits. We were lucky enough to see a breach and teenage whales standing on their heads, twirling their tails in the air and a mother and baby. Doesn't get any better..

  • This tour exceeded expectations! For my cousins, husband and myself! We saw more whales than we could have imagined. Our guides provided so much information and answered all questions that we had. They even managed to get us close enough to get splashed by one! Definitely worth taking this tour and seeing whales so close.

  • Amazing experience. Definitely take the 1st tour out. Saw dozens of whales, males, females, even calves. Saw one breaching!! Multiple blows and spouts from their blowholes. Excellent and informative captain and crew. A must- do while in Maui during winter.

  • We took the cruise in late February which was high season for whale watching. We saw two right out of the harbor and saw about a dozen whales total, including three or four breaches. The crew was great and narrative by the biologist was informative and interesting...they were just as excited as we were to see the whales! Would recommend this cruise...may want to take some motion sickness meds in advance though.

  • We took this whale-watching tour at the absolute height of the season-----early February, when the whales are in the warm Maui waters to frolic and mate having made the journey from Russia and Alaska to do so. Sightings were guaranteed and, boy, they weren't kidding! We didn't know where to look first----seemed like hundreds of whales in the area showing spouts, flukes, and the occasional full breach! I'd recommended this to anyone!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Every time we go to Maui we book this event! Early morning is the best!

  • Everyone seemed to be queued up on time, but they loaded us up a little later than advertised. The person providing the educational dialogue Clint? was excellent. Volunteered a great deal of information and welcomed/answered any questions. Was honest when there really were not known answers to some questions much preferred to self-proclaimed experts. As far as the captain, they did not seem to be doing as well as other boats and in fact those other boats guided us to most of the successful sightings. But we successfully saw what we came for. It would be hard not to be successful that time of year.

  • We were very fortunate the day we went.Saw some fantastic whale activity - even saw a baby whale thanks to ort guides!They said it was one of the best sightings they had seen this season.We realize this does not happen everyday but we were thankful! Beautiful experience!
