Deluxe Whale Watch

Trilogy Excursions (4.7)

The best and most convenient way to Whale Watch on Maui!

From December to April, experience the world of Maui's Humpback Whales on a beautiful sailing catamaran with limited passengers so you can avoid the crowds. This is the best all-around whale watch round an unforgettable experience not to be missed.

On this two-hour whale watch, our onboard naturalists are dedicated to sharing insightful information about the endangered Humpback Whale and their habitat. Our goal is to give the guest a meaningful encounter with these magnificent creatures without disturbing their behavior and following the Sanctuary Whale Watching guidelines. We have hydrophones (weather permitting) on board and are often able to hear the whales sing their incredible songs. Many guests comment that this was the best whale watching experience of their lives! So, come join us for a personalized Whale Watch that leaves the crowds behind!

Sightings guaranteed! If you do not see a whale, your next Whale Watch is on us!

Our wide, comfortable, catamarans offer a stable viewing platform that makes this ocean experience safe for the whole family. Unlike many of the large whale watching boats that take up to 149 passengers, we limit our guests to 30-40 so everyone has a front row seat. With convenient boarding from world-famous Ka’anapali Beach, Lahaina Harbor, or Ma'alaea Harbor, this trip offers you the most direct route to some of the best whale watching in the world!

We went on a whale watch Jan 2018 with 2 other friends and really enjoyed our experience. The staff are professional and truly love what they do, they are all so full of love and knowledge of these huge, amazing animals. Thank you again to the wonderful staff who made my whale watching experience an amazing experience!

Another exceptional excursion - Whale Watch. The crew was fantastic: knowledgable, courteous, and exceptionally mindful - especially for the safety of the passengers. The refreshments were fantastic - snacks and beverages. The whales were FANTASTIC and the crew inserted commentary along the way.

Took the 130pm tour from Maalaea with the wife who was dying to see some whales. Probably the best $60 (each) spent all trip. Saw whales for ~90 out of the 120 mins of the tour (despite being relatively late in whale season). Crew were awesome - friendly and informative! The website advertises 2 drinks / person, but more were offered. The lunch consisted of a variety of sandwiches and cookies which were surprisingly very good! Very much recommended!

We were on this catamaran yesterday (3/15) for an afternoon whale watch. Lucky for us, we were entertained close up by huge whales that seemed to enjoy amusing us. We watched a baby whale doing all kinds of acrobatics. The crew was great. Full of information about the whales without the often heard BS opinions. We enjoyed every minute of the trip.
