2 Hour Whale Watch

During Sea Maui’s winter months (Dec 15th-April 15th) Humpback whales migrate down from the cold waters of Alaska to the warm waters of Maui to give birth to their calves and train them in the safe, calm waters off Ka’anapali. These magnificent mammals congregate yearly in Hawaiian waters and on Hawaiian shorelines for their annual winter migration. In Maui, whale watching is a must-do activity. The whales can be seen effortlessly in the tranquil waters of west and south Maui. You can either choose to stay on Maui’s shore and observe the whales from dry land. Or you can go on a Maui whale watch tour on the water. Even standing on the beach, you will have some of the best whale-watching opportunities during your Maui vacation. You’ll see a whale in the water at some point during your trip if you find a safe place to stand.

Operator Details

Meet Sea Maui

At Sea Maui, we like to do things just a little differently than the rest. For starters, we’re more like your extended family or new best friends once you’re on board. You’re here to have a good time, learn about the ocean, Maui, whales (seasonal) and all that good stuff. We’re not operated by the corporate suits; we’re a team of like-minded, fun-going, salty sailors that absolutely love our jobs and all the cool people we get to meet! When you come on a trip with us we promise to do everything in our power to make sure you have the time of your life out on the water.
