This Whalewatch is led by certified Marine Naturalists for fun and informative interpretation of humpback whale behaviors and characteristics. Watch mothers and calves interact, see males compete for females, hear underwater whale songs – every trip is unique.

Multiple departures daily from historic Lahaina Harbor and conveniently located Maʻalaea Harbor; an easy drive from Kihei, Wailea, Makena, Paia, Upcountry, Wailuku and Kahului.

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.
