Enter the Whale Regatta

The Wild & Wonderful Whale Regatta is like a “rubber ducky” race, except with little whales on a fast-moving watercourse. You can enter one or more whales to race in your name (or as a gift entry) for a chance to win fabulous prizes.

If your whale is the Grand Prize winner, you’ll receive free roundtrip airfare for 2 to Maui from the U.S. mainland or Canada (any major city), Australia (Sydney or Brisbane), or New Zealand (Auckland). Hawaii residents can choose a trip for 2 to the mainland or a trip for 4 to a neighbor island. There are other great prizes for second and third place winners.

The Wild & Wonderful Whale Regatta will take place during Maui Whale Festival 2020. You do not have to be present to win; all winners will be notified by mail or phone before April 1, 2020 and the final live race will be streamed online for all to view.
