Maui is your gateway to some of the best whale watching in the world. The waters off of West Maui and South Maui are shielded by the West Maui Mountains and Haleakala, creating calm and clear waters for high visibility. Humpback whales are also drawn to the area’s shallow waters, less than 600 feet deep, making Maui an ideal spot to start your voyage during the winter whale watching season from December to May.
Lahaina Harbor is home to a wide range of whale watching tours. Treat yourself to scenic ocean views as expert guides take you on the to the best spots to observe whales playfully surfacing, tail slapping, or blowing spouts in the air. Join us on board of Sea Monkey Private Charters for your Maui Whale Watch Cruise!
