Maui Whale Watching

About the Whales

 

      Humpback Whales are one of the largest and most intelligent mammals on earth. They belong to the order Cetacea which also includes other whales, dolphins and porpoises. The official whale season on Maui is December 15th through May 15th.
      The song of the Humpback is acclaimed for duration and complexity and you can hear them sing live while swimming in the waters of Maui during whale season. (TIP: Swim to the bottom in about 3 feet of water or deeper. Every foot makes an audible difference.)
      You can also hear the Humpbacks singing live through your computer thanks to

The Whalesong Project

      which has a special hydrophone placed below a buoy in the waters off Kihei. They can be seen from Luana Kai Resort almost every day during that time. During whale watches it is also common to see large sea turtles and sometimes dolphins.
  • Enchanted Learning – Humpback whale – Learn about Humpbacks and other whales at this user supported educational site. There are plenty of projects and printouts about Humpbacks and other whales for your keiki.
  • Pacific Whale Foundation – Offers whale watching with the experts. Pacific Whale Foundation has been working at protecting the whales for 24 years and a typical whale watch has a marine biologist or other whale expert on board narrating and teaching with hands on supplementary aids.

The Whale Watches

 

      Although The pacific Whale Foundation cruises mentioned above are world famous, several other companies operate very enjoyable and informative whale watch tours.
  • Maui Princess Cruises – With three of the largest and fastest boats on Maui, the Lahaina Princess, Molokai Princess and Maui Princess also include expert narration and have the ‘Whale Cam &trad;’, a live underwater video feed that plays on several boat monitors. Due to the size of their boats these cruises are uncrowded. Japanese Translations available.
  • Gemini Charters – For a more intimate Whale Watching cruise check out the Gemini, a 64 foot sailing catamaran which includes a continental breakfast, whale hydrophone and professional Marine Naturalist narrating your adventure.
  • Maui Ecotours – Presents Whales! an intermediate adventure. Get right down to the water and be awed as the whales come to you. Imagine 20 to 40 tonnes of intelligent marine mammal up close and personal. Other marine life will also be clearly visible. Average groups of 3 to 4 couples and guide.

We are missing Maui big time but are heading to warmer California and Arizona on Monday.... not as nice as Maui, but it will have to do for now.
Best wishes to you.

Leslie,
It has been almost a month since we returned and are ready to come back. I cannot say enough good things about our vacation at Luana Kai. It is more beautiful and relaxing than the pictures show. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful and went out of their way to direct us to different places to see and things to do. My daughter enjoyed it so much she is talking about having her wedding on Maui, assuming of course that her boyfriend asks her. With the exception of the airfare from New Jersey, vacationing at Luana Kai is cheaper than going to the New Jersey shore for a week for the same accommodations beachfront. We will be back. I not sure when, but we will return and recommend to anyone visiting Maui to stay at Luana Kai.
Sincerely,
Dennis, Lori and Allison Hunt
