Never seen a real humpback? You can now on one of these exciting Maui whale watching tours.
Whale watching is one of the most thrilling activities available on Maui, and it is great for kids of all ages. We offer you two large catamarans and a rigid hulled raft on which to seek these enormous creatures. All our vessels are spectacularly fun to travel on, and all of them are excellent whale finders! Whale season takes place from December through April. Come aboard for the Maui whale watching ride of a lifetime!
While you are cruising on the ocean, your incredible captain and crew will know how to find these energetic mammals. Everyone on board will watch the surface for whale spouting, tail slapping, pectoral fin smacking, and—the jackpot of Maui whale watching—breaching! No one knows exactly why the whales breach. And no one knows exactly why the whales sing. But, if getting close to whales is your ultimate goal, these tours deliver!
Humpback whales are intelligent, beautiful, and endlessly mysterious. They can grow to the length of three school buses. That’s 45 feet! Each whale can weigh up to 45 tons, and their calves weigh one to two tons when they are born. (Now, that’s a big baby!) These animals are exceptional, and seeing one can leave you delightfully speechless.
The humpback whales migrate to Maui to mate and to give birth. They were born in the Hawaiian Islands. They return here to find one another and raise their calves during their first few weeks of life. It is thought that the whales leave their feeding grounds up north and give birth here because these waters, in comparison, are protected and warm. For the whales, this may be a good place for baby to put on fat. For you, this is the perfect place for Maui whale watching. In addition, you’re going to have some great views of the neighbor islands: Kahoolawe, Lanai, and Molokai. Be sure to enjoy every moment of your ocean excursion!

Humpback Whale Watching Tours aboard Calypso
Okay, you're in Maui, and it's whale season. What do you do? Go on one of the amazing Maui humpback whale watching tours, of course! (Did you think the whales would come to you? Even if your hotel does have really high ceilings, I'm sorry, but I'm not sure any amount of coaxing would bring an adult humpback into the bar for shrimp cocktail; they can grow up to fifty feet long!)
Maui Whale Watching is Incredible aboard Malolo
The humpback whales return to Hawaii for a few months every year to mate and give birth, so Malolo takes you out to see them from December 15th – April 15th. These animals are spectacular! Just the fact that they exist at all, and they are so much bigger than anything you usually encounter is an amazing thing.
