Whalewatch with the experts on Maui's top-rated ecotour and see these amazing creatures in their natural wild habitat.
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. We offer more whale watching options than any operator on Maui, from sunrise to sunset, providing opportunities to witness these amazing giants of the sea on your schedule. PacWhale Eco-Adventures has made a commitment to improve your experience by drastically reducing our capacities on this experience down to only 67% of maximum carrying capacity.
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.
