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 Humpback Whale Watching Tours are Awesome on the 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!)

“We’re gonna need a bigger boat,” you say.

Exactly!

And what a boat our Calyspo is!  Holy cow (that is what you call a female whale, after all, and yes, a male is known as a bull), this boat is awesome!  It’s a double-decker, high-speed, 55-foot catamaran, and that thing is used to plying the high seas.  I don’t know if you know this, but Maui is one of the toughest places to learn how to use a boat.  If you can do well here, you can do well anywhere, and the captain and crew of Calypso always do exceptionally well!  They’ve been bringing people to the whales in complete comfort (once again, this is much easier than bringing the whales to the people) for 20 years, now, with only very happy passengers and whale songs to report.  As you can probably tell by now, we run one of the best humpback whale watching tours around!

So, why do the humpback whales come here every year?  It could be for the same reasons you come to Maui–to find a mate and/or give birth!  And when it comes to food here, you get to try all kinds of culinary delights on Maui, but the whales get nothin’.

Except for the babies, who are drinking mom’s milk at the rate of 130 gallons per day, the whales are surviving on the fat they’ve stored up while feeding in Alaska.  They migrate 3000 miles to the place they themselves were born, to give birth to their calves in relative safety.  (Very rarely do orcas swim through these parts.)  I can hardly imagine not eating on purpose for the entire trip down, the time it takes to teach my calf to get it together as a whale, and then the trip back.  These guys are incredible! You’ve got to come spend a couple hours with us on our Calypso Humpback whale watching tours.  I guarantee you’ll have a whale of a time.

Tours are available from December through April.
