Whale Watching Adventure, Guided by Naturalists

Join us on one of our 2 hour whale watch cruises, departing at, either, 7:30 a.m., 9:45 a.m., 12:00 p.m., or 2:15 p.m. Each of our whale watches offer spectacular sightseeing, and photo opportunities and all tours are guided by experienced marine naturalists, who will narrate the unique whale activity during your voyage; including, possibly, seeing breaching, spyhopping, and competition pods. The waters off of Maui are well known as one of the best places, in all of Hawaii, to see these wonderful majestic whales, plus we are well-known for providing Maui’s best whale watch tours, which is why whale sightings are guaranteed! Just remember to take lots of photos!

Return to Harbor

Take in Maui’s scenic coastline, as your 2 hour whale watch returns to harbor. Our friendly Captains and crew will escort you off of the vessel, just in time to explore the historic Lahaina town, and if you you would like recommendations for restaurants to visit, our crew will be happy to assist! Since we know you’ll have a great time with us, we want you to remember that our whale watching adventures depart seven days a week, so the’ll be at least a second opportunity to join us again! Every time is a different, amazing show! Remember to share your photos and videos on social media and tag us Facebook @hawaiioceanproject, Twitter (@hioceanproject) and Instagram (@hawaiioceanproject)!

  • We can take you places smaller boats simply cannot reach in inclimate weather due to the stability and size of our boats.
  • No wet okole! (That means “rear end” in the Hawaiian language.) Our boats are big, safe and comfortable. Neither your buns nor your camera gear will get wet. No sitting precariously on the edge of raft or a low rail where you may get wet.
  • Because of the size and comfort of our boats, our tours are fantastic for people of all ages.
  • Bathrooms! On smaller boats, you often need to be lifted into the water to relieve yourself.
