Join us for a Maui whale watching cruise and sail with our attentive crew and naturalists as we welcome Pacific humpback whales to their winter home. We guarantee you see whales, or the next time is on us. Experience these incredible creatures like never before as they play, bask, and give birth to a new generation in our peaceful ocean backyard.

Scientists tell us that whales have been swimming our oceans for the past 65 million years. No surprise then that the songs of megaptera novaeangliae, (the Pacific humpback whale) sound as old as time itself. Our Maui whale watching trip is an unforgettable adventure, so don’t miss your chance to welcome these majestic creatures to the Hawaiian Islands!

We also offer Mercedes shuttle service from select Wailea Resorts to and from our launching point at Maluaka Beach. Space is limited, so contact us to reserve your space.
