2-Hour Maui Whale Watching Catamaran Cruise from Ma’alaea Harbor
Enjoy this 2-hour guided adventure in a high-speed catamaran to watch the whales in their natural habitat. Depending on the whales’ behavior during your whale watching trip, you may see the whales slapping the surface with pectoral fins (their very long side fins), flukes (the tail), the peduncle (the strong muscles attaching the tail to the rest of the body) and the breach, this is when the whale rises completely out of the water and crashes down again. Juices and sodas are available on board.
This high-speed catamaran leaves from Maalaea Harbor and can bring you to the whales quickly. Juices and sodas are included, all kinds of drinks are available for purchase, and there are restrooms on board. The humpback whales return to Hawaii for a few months each year to mate and give birth. The trip takes you out to see for two hours, with a professional guide, these amazing animals from December 15th to April 15th.
The Whale Watch Adventure aboard the "Malolo" catamaran leaves from Maalaea Harbor Slip 87 near Coast Guard Station. Depending on the whales’ behavior during your two-hour whale watching trip, you may see any number of whale things happen. Keep your eyes peeled for whales slapping the surface with pectoral fins (their very long side fins), flukes (the tail), and the peduncle (the strong muscles attaching the tail to the rest of the body). And keep your fingers crossed for a breach. This is when a whale rises completely out of the water and crashes down again! Don’t forget your camera.
