Because Hawaii is the most remote island chain in the world, stargazing here is some of the finest on the planet. Pacific Whale Foundation’s stargazing cruise introduces you to Maui's enchanting sky in a most spectacular setting --- a tropical evening on the beautiful Pacific Ocean off the coast of Lahaina. With the inky dark ocean quietly lapping against the boat and soft tropical breezes flowing over you, you can snuggle under a blanket and sip on a Mai Tai (or wine or beer) as you gaze at Maui's velvet night sky. Hungry? Tuck into an array of tantalizing appetizers prepared fresh for this cruise. During winter (December through April), we'll lower a hydrophone into the sea, so you can listen to the haunting and mysterious songs of humpback whales in the ocean around you.

Your stargazing cruise will be narrated by special guest Harriett Witt, an international award winning astronomy writer and speaker, known for her entertaining and informative commentary on the stars. Her writing has been featured in publications such as Sky & Telescope, and Spirit of Aloha. Offered
every Friday, from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Please check-in 45 minutes prior to departure at Pacific Whale Foundation’s Lahaina Ocean Store at 612 Front Street, Lahaina.
