With both morning and afternoon tour times, we were sure to plan our menu with options to please every guest, no matter what time of day. Our 8:00am sail includes a fresh Mom Coon’s 4th generation recipe Cinnamon Roll and fresh fruit, including juicy pineapple slices.
Our 10:30am and 1:00pm tour times include turkey or veggie wraps, fruit and a cookie! For guests 21+ (with ID), two adult premium beverages are included on the return sail, as well as soda and fresh, filtered water.
During your whale watching tour, you’ll get more than just amazing views of the Maui coastline and a front-row seat to whale breaches. Our onboard whale naturalists will also share fun facts about the humpback whale population and their habitat, providing a truly meaningful encounter for our guests.
For a special unique treat on all our whale watches, our catamarans are also equipped with onboard Hydrophones that we place in the water so guests can take in the beauty of the incredible whales’ songs!
An important part of our ohana’s training, all of our Captains and Crew are also armed with the details of NOAA safe-viewing guidelines, so that we can confidently do our part in protecting the safety of our beloved whale population.
Check-in with our Crew member in a blue shirt on the lawn in front of the Sheraton, at the end of the Beach Walk.
**NOTE** If at check-in, surf conditions are deemed dangerous, guests can expect to walk 10-15 minutes north on the beach walk to a safer boarding area. Check-in location will not change.
We will be loading from the beach, you can expect to get wet up to your knees when you board. Please watch the short Beach Loading video below, taken on a small surf day. This tour is NOT recommended for guests with mobility issues. Please consider a tour with a Maalaea Harbor departure.
Parking is available at the Sheraton Maui for $15. Guests also have the option to park at Whalers Village. Trilogy will not validate your parking pass at Whalers.
*On days when beach loading is not possible due to large surf, we will depart from Maalaea Harbor. Guests are responsible for their transportation to Maalaea Harbor. We will always try to give ample warning if this change must take place.
This excursion loads directly from the sands of world-famous Ka’anapali Beach, and you WILL get wet when loading. Please watch this quick video showing our beach-loading process during medium shore break. Please keep in mind that beach loading requires a certain level of physical fitness.
