Maui is the place to see humpback whales. Each year these magnificent creatures migrate south from Alaska, and although you can see them throughout Hawaii, the ‘Au ‘au channel off the coast of Maui boasts the greatest number. 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! We generally spot humpbacks on all of our trips during the winter, but this season we’re offering an exciting opportunity to Sail with the Whales! We’ll embark from Ma’alaea harbor and set sail in the afternoon Tradewinds. This trip is exclusively sailing, so we can head to wherever the whales may be.

Maaalea Whale Watch! - Have you ever seen a real live humpback whale? Well now’s your chance. We offer an awesome fully narrated 2 hour Maui whale watching tour during whale season, December through April. There is no better place than Ma’alaea Bay, often referred to as the “cradle of the humpback,” for its high concentration of these magnificent animals. If you haven’t had the experience for seeing a humpback in the wild its a must do on your vacation. The Quicksilver is a great boat for Maui whale watching because of its double decks and comfortable table and chair seating.
These animals are amazingly active during their short stay in Hawaii. They are here to mate and give birth. The warm, relatively shallow water of Ma’alaea Bay is the ideal place for these activities. The rest of the year they spend their time feeding in Alaska.
Humpback whales display many different types of behaviors. Here we have pictures of the most common. These whales can stay underwater for up to 30 minutes. Upon surfacing they ex hail at an alarming rate. The lungs of a full grown adult whale can be as large as a VW bug. When they exhale you can see their “blow” from miles away. A Breach is also a common and very exciting spectacle. It’s hard to explain how awe inspiring it really is. Experience for yourself, book your Maui whale watching tour today! Sightings guaranteed or go again free.
