Best Maui Whale Watching | Incredible Footage

One of the most popular activities to enjoy on the Valley Isle is whale watching. The North Pacific humpback whales visit Maui’s waters every year for their annual winter migration.

If you want to watch one of the most inspiring and emotion-inducing Maui whale watching videos, here you go! There’s nothing compared to a Maui whale watching tour, and journeying on the Pride of Maui catamaran to see these majestic creatures is all you’ll ever hope for and more.

In this video, you’ll see the God-like North Pacific humpback whales in their natural West Maui habitat during their annual migration to Maui’s waters (roughly November to late-March). Watch them frolic, and gracefully swim through Maui’s oceans with their dolphin counterparts. Listen to their whale song and see these glorious prehistoric mammals glide through the ocean, demonstrating the whale behavior that they’re known for; blowing, tail slaps, breaching, fluke-up dives, pectoral slaps, spy hopping, and more.

Rolling Home, Maui-Hawaii

Imagine what it would be like to travel through Maui in a VW Westfalia Van. With three friends and three hammocks, the video tells the story of their eight-day journey with epic footage of the Valley Isle. Climbing coconut trees and slicing a pineapple with a machete is a bonus!

See Maui’s oceans, breathtaking coastlines, and lesser-known beaches. Watch them travel the Road to Hana towards East Maui locales, and take a break to skateboard Hana’s winding roads for part of the way. They longboard in West Maui and hike through the Haleakala Crater. We especially love their underwater footage as they snorkel and swim with Maui’s tropical fish and the incredible Hawaiian green sea turtles.

There’s a super sweet vibe to this video, and even more enchanting with the low-key track they chose to accompany the film.

Drones Over Dolphin Stampede and Whales

This epic Maui video was created by Captain Dave Anderson, a Maui videographer with over 20+ years of experience in leading ocean tours. This powerful Humpback Whale video offers some truly stunning aerial footage of a mother, baby, and male escort seen swimming off the coast of Maui. The footage is a truly gorgeous account of the bond between a mother and her calf, and since being posted in February of 2014, it has over 14-million views. Wow!

As a special note, Anderson states, “Attention any would-be whale videographers: please only attempt this if you are extremely familiar with whale behavior, as it is illegal to do anything that causes the whales to change their normal behavior with big fines – and the authorities do watch YouTube. Different areas have different laws on approaching whales. I am a whale watch captain with nearly 20 years of experience. All laws were obeyed by us during filming. In Maui, we sat watching whales from a distance for hours before they moved closer to us. You can never approach them closer than 100 yards. The Mom and calf, as you can see in the film, were completely undisturbed by the small drone. NOAA is currently reviewing drones and may create laws or guidelines for using them around whales.”

Twin Falls-Canon 5D2 24p-Filmlook

Do you want to see a flawless, clear movie-quality video of Twin Falls? Yes, of course, you do! East Maui’s Twin Falls is the first group of waterfalls in a string of pools and waterfalls on the Road To Hana. It’s easily one of the most underrated spots in Maui guidebooks, and it’s worth a stop.

If you’re planning a visit to Twin Falls, make sure that safety is your #1 priority. Exploring Maui’s waterfalls and natural swimming pools is undoubtedly an experience of a lifetime, but please remain on the marked trails, and heed all warning signage. Never adventure to Maui’s waterfalls on rainy days, and be cautious of flash flooding at all times. Rocks are slippery, so be sure to bring some water shoes, and never hike to waterfalls alone.

Pro-tip (Not shown in video): Make sure to check out the farm stand at Twin Falls! They offer fresh fruit, smoothies, ice-cold coconuts, and home-made baked goods. The banana bread and coconut candy should not be missed!
