Performance Catamaran Whale Watching

Experience the Best Whale Watching in the Hawaiian Islands

There is no better place in Hawaii to join a catamaran whale watching cruise and get up close to these large majestic mammals. Maui's waters boasts the largest humpback whale population in Hawaii. Our warm and protected waters make an ideal location for the humpbacks to mate and give birth to their calves. These whales are known for their acrobatics, and are often seen fully breaching out of the ocean!

What to Expect

When making your reservation, choose whether you would like to embark from Ma’alaea or Lahaina harbor and set sail in the afternoon tradewinds. Join the captain and crew in keeping a lookout while you refresh with a variety of beverages, including wine and local beer. We generally spot humpbacks on all of our trips during the winter to keep your eyes peeled because once we spot them we will sail towards them in a safe and respectable manner.

This trip is exclusively sailing, so relax on board without the drone of a motor and we’ll head to wherever the whales may be! Sailing off of Maui can be quite exhilarating so while we will do our best to get as close to the humpbacks as we are able in the breeze, this trip can be more of an adventure than a mellow tour if the winds are up.
