Experience Maui's top-rated whalewatch with the experts at Pacific Whale Foundation—departing from historic Lahaina Harbor. We offer multiple departure times from Lahaina, including sunrise, morning, afternoon and sunset cruises. We also offer Whalewatch Specials from Lahaina with discounted prices.

Informative and fun, each two-hour whalewatch is led by a team of certified Marine Naturalists, who explain and interpret the social behavior of humpback whales. Listen to whale songs through underwater hydrophones and watch a variety of whale behaviors.

Whale sightings are guaranteed on all Pacific Whale Foundation whalewatches (from November 7 – May 15) or you go again free at your convenience within one year of your cruise. We are proud of our 97% sighting success rate. This boat tour will take you through the breeding and mating area of the North Atlantic Humpback Whales. Every trip is different on these ocean adventures, you never know what you will experience.

This cruise is offered on Ocean Discovery, a double-deck eco-friendly catamaran that was built for comfort, stability and excellent whale viewing for everyone on board. The upper deck provides excellent panoramic views and a higher viewing angle for whale watching and taking photos. The vessel also provides ample space to move around with shaded cabins and rear decks, and sunbathing areas on the bow and upper deck.
