What You Can Expect

Maui Whale Watch Cruise

Maui Whale Watch Cruise

Hop aboard your vessel in Lahaina and settle in on the upper observation deck or the enclosed main cabin with large viewing windows. Commentary will be provided as you go, along with images from an under web cam and hydrophone (subject to water conditions) for additional visibility.

This tour operates during the whale migration period from December until May, when humpback whales come to Maui’s warm waters to breed, a 3,500-mile (5635 km) departure from their feeding waters in Alaska. Keep your eyes peeled as your captain and crew help to point out any marine life that pops up, and soak up the stunning backdrop of the island’s coastline.

This tour has multiple departures times to fit your travel schedule, and will conclude at its original departure point.

It was wonderful. We saw lots and lots of whales. This is a 120 foot yacht and the largest whale watching boat on Maui. I prefer a sturdy boat as opposed to the small ones, even though the smaller boats are allowed to get closer to active whales. There were drinks and snacks available for purchase on board, but we were too busy watching the whales cavort.

The ship was stable in the water . The naturalist narrator onboard was well informed, humorous and maintained a running commentary throughout the voyage. A mother humpback, her calf and a male escort swam under our boat and came up on the other side. It don't get any better than that.

Really enjoyed our time on the water - we had a challenger group two males and a female just 1000 yards away for about an hour. It was unreal and our guide taught us all about the behaviors we were seeing. I slap my pectoral fin in approval, guys - it was a terrific activity and I recommend it.
