Marine Naturalists will be narrating your tour with excellent information on the Humpback’s behavior and characteristics. During your stops to watch the whales, they will also use their underwater hydrophones so you can hear them singing.

Get ready for a fun and exciting whale-watching cruise, which will check-in at the Pacific Whale Foundation store, located at the Maalaea Harbor Shops, next to the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium. There you will receive your boarding passes and get important information about your cruise. Soon after, you will walk down to the harbor to board PWF's catamaran for our adventure.
As you exit Maalaea Harbor, you will be coasting over Maalaea Bay, an area where whales are spotted very frequently. Your captain will be contacting other boats in the area so you can get to the whales as fast as possible. Keep your eyes open and shout it out if you see a whale breach or spout, dolphins, turtles, or flying fish. There's a lot more to find than just whales!
Throughout your cruise, PWF certified Marine Naturalists narrate on Humpback Whales' behavior and characteristics, how mothers interact with their calves, how males fight for the females' attention, etc.
As you exit the boat, don't forget to stop by the PWF store to pick up your free Marine Wildlife oversized postcard. It's going to be a great souvenir from your unforgettable Maui Whale Watching cruise. By the way, in the unlikely event the whales are on strike and don't show up during your cruise, Pacific Whale Foundation will give you free tickets to return at a later date, free of charge!
Check-in at the Pacific Whale Foundation Store, located at 612 Front Street, 45 minutes before your tour start time.
