During Maui’s whale season (Dec 15th-Apr 15th), a whale watch on our luxury sailing catamaran is a must-do! Offering a wide, stable platform for viewing, our Ma’alaea 2-hour Whale Watch is perfect for the whole family! Our Captain and Crew will welcome you aboard as we set sail, serving you an assortment of sliced deli sandwiches and fresh tropical fruit. As you enjoy our premium bar onboard, get ready for the sheer thrill of seeing Maui’s humpback whales as they spout and breach their way along the coastline!
The Ma’alaea Whale Watch includes a delicious lunch aboard our sailing catamaran, which is sure to leave you fueled up for some epic whale watching.
We offer an assortment of freshly sliced turkey, roast beef, ham, or veggie deli sliders for all of our guests, and a tasty seasonal fruit platter including juicy pineapple and refreshing watermelon.
As you sail the shores of the Maui coast, you’ll finish off your ocean lunch with a satisfyingly sweet chocolate chip 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.
