Small Group Whale Watch (2HR)

Join us aboard our 27ft hard-bottom ocean raft for eye-level Whale Watching from Lahaina Harbor! Avoid the crowds and enjoy comfortable seating for up to 16 passengers with spectacular views of Hawaii’s humpback whales! The Humpback Whale returns to the warm Hawaiian waters every year during the winter months of December through April for their mating and calving season. Although whales are protected in Hawaii and we do not approach them closer than federal regulations, they often approach our small rafts for those up-close and eye-level whale encounters. Your tour includes a full narration of interesting whale and Maui facts from our marine naturalist, listening to whale songs on a hydrophone, water onboard, and lots of photo ops!
