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.

Thanks Leslie
I really appreciate your service. Every time we have stayed at Luana Kai the service, the staff, and the facilities have always been 5 star in our book. With all the details and stress over making sure our daughters wedding perfect last July, it was a welcome relief knowing that our stay at Luana Kai could only make it that much more perfect. Again thanks. We will let you know what dates we can make. Again, thank you very much for all you've done for us...and the map.

P.S. Tell Peter and his wife we said hi.

Aloha Leslie!
My wife and I would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Luana Kai Resort staff once again for helping to ensure our 1st ever stay in Maui was a memorable one! We didn't want to leave paradise!
Condo A205 was our home away from home, and we enjoyed all the amenities that Luana Kai had to offer. The pool area was absolutely wonderful to enjoy, the sunsets were amazing as well. Our condo was spacious and clean. The Lanai gave us excellent ocean views. We also left some comments in the suite guestbook for future travellers.
Your professionalism, flexibility & overall excellent customer service give us several reasons to remember the Luana Kai next time we plan a Maui vacation. We will also be sure to keep the Luana Kai resort in our minds when we hear of friends & family who plan to travel to Maui. We especially appreciated your willingness to accommodate our special circumstances, having to break up our stay into two different stints due to the lack of flexibility of our other resort booking agency. Booking with you was as easy as one phone call and a few emails.
Your happy demeanor made the whole process easy for us.
Mahalo!! We'll be back one day...
James and Cheryl
