Trail of the Whale

& Information Stations

Our trained Marine Naturalists are stationed at various locations along Maui’s coasts to help you learn about whales, dolphins, sea turtles and other marine wildlife from shore. The Ulua Beach Information Station operates year-round, with additional outreach sites offered during whalewatch season (December to April). Learn the best techniques for spotting whales, and use our binoculars, scopes and bio-artifacts to get a better view.
