Whale and Dolphin Sightings

Live Whale & 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 cruises, our trained naturalists gather scientific data about marine wildlife encountered. Computers onboard 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 and can gather an impressive set of data over each season. 

Our Whale and Dolphin Tracker map (show below) is updated every day and recorded in real time, displaying all sightings within the last seven days.
