  • Full description
    Board the comfortable and spacious double-deck power catamaran from Ma'alaea Harbor and cruise the Maui coastline to see the humpback whales, who return to Hawaii for a few months each year to mate and give birth. Get up close to these amazing animals to view their spectacular whale behaviors in their native environment

    Keep your eyes peeled for massive splashes across the horizon from whales slapping the surface with their fins and tails. See them spy-hop, when humpback whales come high out of the water to have a look around at the world above.
    See the majesty of a breaching whale, if you are lucky. This is when a whale rises completely out of the water and crashes down again. Don’t forget to bring your camera and take memorable photos from the shade of a spacious cabin.
