Check Availability


Treat yourself to an amazing experience of watching majestic humpback whales in their Pacific habitat. Every winter, numerous pods of these magnificent creatures make a trip from the cold waters of Alaska to the warm, shallow waters of Hawaii, to breed, calve, and nurse their young.

Depart from Lahaina, board your comfortable vessel, and cruise out along the coast in search of the great humpback whale. Keep an eye out on the horizon for breaching. Gently swimming through the shallow bay, they might even slap the water for you—or even surface to take a look at you.

Hear about the interpretation of social and adaptive behaviors of whales from a team of certified marine naturalists and biologists. Even listen to whale songs through a hydrophone. Younger guests may want to join the Junior Naturalist program to receive a complimentary kids' booklet and learn more about these great creatures.
