Capture the first whale sighting of the day as the sun rises over Haleakala.
The golden light of dawn is a spectacular backdrop for whalewatching and a favorite of photographers. Typically this is also the calmest time of day on the ocean. Sunrise Whalewatch is led by certified Marine Naturalists for fun and informative interpretation of humpback whale behaviors and characteristics. Departs from Historic Lahaina Harbor.
Whale sightings are guaranteed or go again free on another whalewatch of equal or lesser value within one year. We are proud of our 97% sighting success rate.
