Two of Maui's most popular activities are now combined for a fun day on the water with kayaking and whale watching on Maui. Your knowledgeable and expert guide will lead you across the calm waters off of Lahaina for a Maui kayak tour and Maui whale watch. The perfect option for skilled kayak enthusiasts, or those who have never been kayaking before, you will quickly get to enjoy this eco-friendly whale watching expedition. You will also head to a couple of the best spots for snorkeling in Maui, and with all of your provided equipment, get ready to splash down to snorkel among the colorful tropical fish, vibrant coral reefs, and perhaps even a Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle!

Maui Kayaks offers exceptional guided kayak and snorkel adventures each conducted with Ho‘okipa (Hawaiian Hospitality). They pride themselves on providing customers with excellence, professionalism, knowledge, experienced guides, enthusiasm, safety, quality gear, snacks, and refreshments.
This tour operates only December to the end of March.

Why is Maui Best for Whale Watching? The island of Maui is often touted as one of the best places to go in Hawaii to see the humpback whales that make their way here from Alaska each winter, and the reason for this is the Auau Channel located between Maui, Molokai, and Lanai. The Auau Channel offers shallow waters that are warm and safe for the adult humpback whales and their calves, so they often stay off of the west coast of Maui during their time in Hawaii.
