Departure Point

612 Front St, Lahaina, HI 96761, USA

Departure Time

12:30 PM
Arrive at the Pacific Whale Foundation’s Ocean Store in Lahaina in the late morning. You’ll then board the Foundation’s ‘Ocean Spirit,’ a state-of-the-art luxury catamaran, to begin your whale watching adventure.

Your trip will head into the waters near Maui in search of the numerous Humpbacks that travel each year from Alaska to Hawaii to find a mate. During your cruise, you’ll learn about whale behavior from the on-board crew of marine naturalists and biologists as you watch for these denizens of the deep as they rest and mate. Look for mothers with newborn whale calves, or observe male Humpbacks as they compete for females. You’ll even be able to hear the Humpbacks singing underwater, thanks to an underwater hydrophone.

Complement your whale watching with an included buffet lunch, featuring Kiawe smoked pork and chicken sliders served with guava barbecue sauce, fresh fruit, chips and salsa and two free alcoholic beverages for those of age. You’ll return back to Lahaina Harbor at the end of your cruise.

Best whale watching ever!
KAREN_H

This was the best whale watching trip ever. Not only did we see many whales up close, we had one entertain us for about 15 minutes when we shut down for lunch. Amazing! Staff were friendly and very professional. The tour guide also provided some very interesting information about the whales throughout the trip. I definitely recommend this activity.

A MUST DO when you’re in Maui!

We had a wonderful experience on our whale watch day sail. Arrival instructions were clear and easy to follow. Lunch was delicious. The captain and crew were all very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We learned so much on the trip about whale research, migration patterns, and conservation efforts. They answered all our questions and then some. At one point we had 15 whales we were observing including multiple groups of males “competing” for a female, a mom and her new calf, and one even swam right up to the boat. An amazing day and we would highly recommend it. If you are only able to do one structured activity while you’re in Maui this should be it!

Pacific Whale Foundation - best whale watching lunch tour with booze

Loved the boat, loved the crew. They found a group of 5 whales and we were following it. The seats were assigned to each group of passengers; I thought it was neat. I only wish that the people could control their kids so that they do not crowd other passengers.

Very friendly and attentive crew. Extremely knowledgeable personnel from the Pacific Whale Foundation. Excellent food and wide selection of drinks during lunch. We saw many single whales and a whale family mom, dad, and calf. Easy access to the store and harbor via shuttle from area hotels/lodging. The store is very well stocked and has merchandise for all ages and tastes.
