What you can expect

Maui Whale Season

For more than one reason, the Island of Maui is consistently rated the Best Island in the world. Not only do the visitors and happy locals of Maui know this, but so do the humpback whales. Year after year, the humpback whales travel from cool Alaskan waters all the way to warm Hawaiian oceans for their annual winter breeding.

They are first spotted in Maui’s waters as early as October and their presence gradually increases as more pods and escorts finally arrive in Hawaii just in time for the holiday season. Maui’s Whale Season runs from mid-Fall to April. The peak season for watching whales is generally during the latter part of the season; January, February and March.

Whale sightings guaranteed

December is when the whales arrive, and they are not in full numbers until mid-January.

Whale sightings are guaranteed January through March only. Our guarantee includes a free pass for your next whale watching tour if no whales are sighted on your trip. Whale sightings are not guaranteed in December or April due to whale migration patterns during the arrival and departure periods. The whale sighting guarantee is good for free passes only, no refunds or cash value.

Whale singing
Only male humpback whales sing! They sing in their breeding grounds to attract females, and ward off other males. The singers are lone animals, singing 50-60 feet below the oceans surface with their heads pointing down and their tails pointed up. Their songs can last from 20-40 minutes, and are liken to a complex classical music when broken down into specific phrases and units.

  • My family and I had THE BEST time on our whale watching and snorkel trip! The tour personnel is awesome! Vinny the cook made a delicious lunch. The drinks were fantastic and poured well. My kids loved snorkeling with various fish and the snorkel boogie boards are the BOMB! Josh and captain Jason knew their stuff. Overall an excellent adventure. I highly recommend it! - Stephanie P., Grand Canyon Village, AZ
  • Our family had an amazing time on our afternoon tour. The staff was professional, helpful and very attentive. We felt welcomed from the beginning. All our questions were answered and needs met. We learned a lot about the humpback whale and had several sightings. The snorkeling experience was awesome, even for the 3 of us who were total newbies! Both kids, ages 12 and 10, wanted to do it again. Thank you, Captain Jason and crew, for making our experience unforgettable! - Mrs_Nold2004, Maple Valley, WA
  • Pride of Maui was awesome. We were lucky and saw a ton of whale activity. The captain gave lots of great information about the whales and island. I am not a big fan of snorkeling, but I am so glad I got over it. Crystal clear water and tons of fish in the crater. My husband, who has snorkeled and scuba dived all over the world, says it was the best snorkeling ever. The food and drinks on the return trip were good for being served on a boat. The meeting spot is kind of hidden and we had to wait for about 30 minutes to board, but totally worth it. - Jamaica V, Charleston, SC
