Enjoy a deluxe 3-hour whalewatch plus a delicious lunch onboard our state-of-the-art luxury sailing vessel, Ocean Spirit.
Ocean Spirit is a high-tech, eco-friendly sailing catamaran with a maximum capacity of 65 passengers. Whalewatch Sail Deluxe is led by Certified Marine Naturalists for fun and informative interpretation of humpback whale behaviors and characteristics. The additions of lunch on board, unlimited soda and juice, as well as BYOB* beverages make this ecotour a deluxe whale watching experience. Enjoy your BYOB beverages in one of our complimentary ice-filled coolers or wine sleeves, available at check-in for use during your tour!
*BYOB beverages must be in cans or wine bottles. No beer in bottles or hard liquor is allowed for safety concerns. Wine bottles, labeled with your party’s name, will be kept at the bar. PWF supports locally made products; find a list of locally made alcoholic beverages sold in nearby stores HERE. A friendly reminder, according to Maui County law, it is illegal to have an open container of alcohol in your car or in public places, like beaches, parks or street sides. The fine for an open container can be up to $300.
We sail when possible depending on weather conditions or whale activity and may need to use our engines for the safety of the animals, in accordance with our “Be Whale Aware” policies for safe and sustainable humpback whale viewing.
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.
Children 4 and under are free.
