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.

Hi Leslie
Congratulations on your anniversary of 25 years at Luana Kai. I hope you have many, many more wonderful and happy years and anniversaries there.

I know, personally, that I have enjoyed each and every visit and stay at Luana Kai. I cannot remember the exact date of my first visit and stay there, but it probably started in the early 1990s when I attended legal seminars in nearby Wailea. I have stayed at Luana Kai at least 10 times and, mostly in 210B.

You are living the dream I once had when I first visited Kihei and stayed at Luana Kai.

You and your staff, especially you, always made me feel at home - leaving a beautiful vase of beautiful Hawaiian flowers on the counter with a note "Welcome to your second home Ann." You have no idea how much I enjoyed this act of kindness. At any rate, please continue your great life.

Hope to see you in the latter part of this year.
With love and best wishes,

Ann

OH YAY!
I'm hoping that summer, maybe fall, Peter and I can make it out there again... I've been away far too long! Well, in case I don't get around to congratulating you on Tuesday, CONGRATULATIONS! You are an awesome "hostess" to us all & your love and professionalism and courtesy and friendliness and smile, are just a few things why I keep coming back to my &dquot;home away from home&dquot;!
Love,
Therese
