What You Can Expect

Whalewatch Sail Deluxe Lahaina

Ocean Spirit

Arrive at the Pacific Whale Foundation’s Ocean Store in Lahaina in the late morning. You’ll then board the Foundation’s ‘Ocean Spirit,’ a state-of-the-art luxury catamaran, to begin your whale watching adventure.

Your trip will head into the waters near Maui in search of the numerous Humpbacks that travel each year from Alaska to Hawaii to find a mate. During your cruise, you’ll learn about whale behavior from the on-board crew of marine naturalists and biologists as you watch for these denizens of the deep as they rest and mate. Look for mothers with newborn whale calves, or observe male Humpbacks as they compete for females. You’ll even be able to hear the Humpbacks singing underwater, thanks to an underwater hydrophone.

Complement your whale watching with an included buffet lunch, featuring Kiawe smoked pork and chicken sliders served with guava barbecue sauce, fresh fruit, chips and salsa and two free alcoholic beverages for those of age. You’ll return back to Lahaina Harbor at the end of your cruise.

Very friendly and attentive crew. Extremely knowledgeable personnel from the Pacific Whale Foundation. Excellent food and wide selection of drinks during lunch. We saw many single whales and a whale family mom, dad, and calf. Easy access to the store and harbor via shuttle from area hotels/lodging. The store is very well stocked and has merchandise for all ages and tastes.
