Whale and Dolphin Sightings
Live Whale and Dolphin Tracker
Pacific Whale Foundation's ocean ecotours are also platforms for gathering valuable data about marine wildlife in the region between Maui, Lana'i, Kaho'olawe and Molokai. During our eco-cruises, our marine naturalists gather scientific data about marine wildlife that we encounter.
Onboard computers allow our team to instantly upload data to our research database using our exclusive Whale and Dolphin Tracker software. With over nine vessels and more than fifteen whalewatch cruises daily during the winter, we put in an extensive amount of time on the ocean.
Our Whale and Dolphin Tracker is updated every day of the year and recorded in real time. We display the tracker map below of all sightings within the last seven days.
