Hop aboard one of the Trilogy catamarans in support of the whale sanctuary, as the company was the first official sponsor, donating a portion of all proceeds towards Hawaii whale research. Limiting passengers to 35-40 per boat means that everyone enjoys a front row seat to the unique and unforgettable whale watching experience. The wide, stable catamarans offer a comfortable and safe viewing platform. A fantastic option to see these majestic creatures so be sure you don't forget your camera!
Please Note! This activity only operates in the winter. Please book the Honolua Bay Snorkel & SNUBA Sailing Adventure (from Kaanapali Beach) during the Spring, Summer, and Fall months.
