Trip Details

Afternoons on the clear deep blue coastal waters offers views of Maui at her best under normal circumstances, but during whale season it is an extraordinary experience.

Each year these magnificent creatures migrate south from Alaska where our warm, relatively shallow and protected waters make an ideal location for the humpbacks to mate and give birth to their calves. These whales are known for their acrobatics, and are often seen fully breaching out of the ocean! Explore the inner island channel on a 2.5 hour whale watch aboard our Gold Coast catamaran ‘Alihilani as we share this time with the humpback whales

This seasonal whale watch embarks from Lahaina Harbor. Enjoy a FULL Gourmet lunch better than any restaurant could offer on land as you join the captain and crew in keeping a look out for tail-slaps, spouts and breaches.
