Overview

Traveling in a small raft creates an intimate whale watching experience not found on the larger vessels commonly used on whale watching tours. Plus, the raft travels quickly, letting you spend more time whale watching and less time in transit.
  • Enjoy a small group whale watching tour off the coast of Maui
  • You can choose from a morning or afternoon tour so it doesn’t interfere with other plans
  • In the event of cancellation due to weather, you are offered an alternate outing or a full refund

Whale watching in Lahaina with Hawaii Ocean Rafting
Terri

We had an amazing time whale watching in Lahaina with Hawaii Ocean Rafting. The crew and captain were very knowledgable and made sure every side of the boat had a good view of the action. They explained what was happening in the water, and why. We caught some beautiful whale sightings. The highlight was when my daughter was held upside down in the water and got to watch a whale pass near the boat.

Informative and Exciting

We were a group of nine family members. We all enjoyed the trip. We debated taking a larger boat, but opted to go with the smaller Zodiac. It was a great decision. Everyone was able to see the whales the whole time. I had read that on the catamarans you sometimes have to stand three deep at the railings waiting for your turn to see the whales surface. Our guides shared lots of information about the whales including migratory patterns, eating routines, and social interaction. This was definitely a worthwhile adventure.

My wife and I did a cruise whale watch a few days prior and decided to schedule a rafting whale watch. The raft was Great White and it was an awesome experience. So many great views and video and so much better on a small boat. Highly recommended.
