Best Whale Watching Tours in Maui!
Between December and April every year, a spectacular change happens in Hawaii as endangered humpback whales begin their annual migration from Alaska to give birth and nurture their calves in the warm Hawaiian waters. The channel between Maui and Lanai is a prime spot for whale sightings, with many boats departing form Lahaina and Maalaea to carry passengers out to this area. This is a rare opportunity, and Maui offers some of the best chances to see and learn about the world’s largest mammals.

    Availability varies by date for all activities.
