Each year from December to April, Maui is home to some of the best whale watching in the world. Humpback whales are drawn to the area’s shallow waters—which are less than 600 feet deep—making Maui an ideal spot for catching sight of these majestic creatures. The waters off of West Maui and South Maui are shielded by the West Maui Mountains and Haleakala, which creates calm and clear waters for high visibility.

Treat yourself to a winter whale watching tour as expert guides take you to the best spots to observe whales playfully surfacing, tail slapping, or blowing spouts in the air. You'll treasure an excursion in a charter boat or passenger raft to witness the grace of their spectacular dives, the beauty of their exuberant leaps, and the gentleness of their nature.
