Rafting Whale Watch


Experience the magic of up-close whale watching

See the whales up close is on a rafting whale watching tour

Every year at the start of Fall more than 60% of the North Pacific Humpback Whale population will begin their migration from Alaska to Hawaii, with many of them choosing to stay in the waters off of Maui during their visit.

The best way to see these whales up close is on a Maui rafting whale watching tour. We endeavor to create the ultimate whale watching experience for our guests; our marine naturalists keep the tour educational and exciting, while you enjoy the benefits of having only 23 other passengers on board with you.

A smaller group helps create a more intimate setting in which our tour guides and naturalists have the opportunity to answer more of your questions. Imagine riding out to sea on our safe rafts as the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean mists your smiling face and the salty breeze blows through your hair, all while a happy Humpback mugs for your camera!

We offer a convenient South Maui departure location, and because of the agility of our vessels you will find that you?re spending less time searching and more time whale watching. Not only will you return from your whale watching adventure with priceless photos and more with knowledge of these majestic marine mammals, you'll also have made everlasting memories and had the time of your life. We invite you to come see why many consider whale watching aboard a raft is the only way to do it!
