Every winter, thousands of humpback whales travel to the warm, shallow waters of Maui to mate, give birth, and raise their young. Learn the true scale of humpback whales through an intimate encounter on a small-group whale watch, where every seat is a front seat. Get off the beaten path and sail past the shoreline as you discover breathtaking vistas of both Kahalawai Mountains and the Molokini Crater. Discover whales and the perfect perspective close to the water to allow for a once-in-a-lifetime viewing. Ocean stewardship is deeply embedded in Native Hawaiian culture. Humpback whales, or kohola, are an important part of history, legends, and connection to the sea.

Whales Guaranteed: If you don’t see whales on any of our “WHALE WATCH”-specific trips, come back again 1 more time for free! (Rerides only, no refunds. Reride is on a trip of equal or lesser value.)
