An Encounter You Will Never Forget
Whale Season is a very exciting time in Hawaii, here on Maui and aboard Kai Kanani. Whale songs can fill the water and be heard on even the most casual snorkel excursion. And it’s almost impossible to sit on the beach and not see some type of whale action – spouts of the whales as they come up for air, breaches as they jump out of the water, and tail slaps as they smack the surface.
Join us for a Maui whale-watching cruise and sail with our attentive crew and naturalists as we welcome Pacific humpback whales to their winter home. We guarantee you will see whales or the next time is on us.* Experience these incredible creatures like never before as they play, bask, and give birth to a new generation in our peaceful ocean backyard.
Scientists tell us that whales have been swimming in our oceans for the past 65 million years. No surprise then that the songs of megaptera novaeangliae (the Pacific humpback whale) sound as old as time itself. Our Maui whale-watching trip is an unforgettable adventure, so don’t miss your chance to welcome these majestic creatures to the Hawaiian Islands!
We also offer a Mercedes shuttle service from select Wailea Resorts to and from our launching point at Maluaka Beach. Space is limited, so contact us to reserve your space.
* Re-booking is available during your same visit only. All tour locations are subject to weather and at the captain’s discretion. Safety is our top concern at Kai Kanani, and we apologize if there is any inconvenience due to weather-related cancellations or changes.
