Maui is the undisputed whale watching capital of Hawaii.
Maui is the prime spot in Hawaii for viewing hundreds of humpback whales from November through May as thousands congregate in the warm waters off the coast to eat, mate, and raise their young. Witness these magnificent creatures in their natural environment with an educational and fun boat cruise from Maui’s whale watching experts. Since 1980, the non-profit Pacific Whale Foundation has focused on studying and protecting whales, and marine life and the oceans more broadly, through research and educating the public. Their passion and expertise is on full display on their tours as certified marine naturalists explain the whales’ social behavior and let you listen to whale songs through an underwater hydrophone. All profits from your tickets go directly towards their important work of protecting the oceans through science and advocacy.
In this unique on-the-water workshop, finetune your camera skills and come away with some amazing photos. A professional wildlife photographer will teach you expert techniques for photographing whales and other marine life, whether you are a novice or more advanced. Digital photos taken by staff during the trip and other favorites are provided afterwards, and a whale poster and color whale watch guide is also given to each party.
