Whale Watching Tour Maui

2 Hour Tour

Daily Tours: 10am & 12pm

Snorkel Gear Included

When visiting Maui during whale season (December 1st through March 31st), whale watching is a can’t miss adventure. At Maui Pacific Tours, we believe there is no better way to experience whale watching than from an outrigger canoe.

Step away from the land & explore Maui from the water’s perspective with a Maui Canoe Tour. This is your chance to experience the canoe – one of the most important symbols of Hawaiian Culture. We paddle up as close as possible to the awe-inspiring whales to get the best view.

After viewing the whales, its time to cool off and have fun in the water. Snorkelers are guaranteed to see turtles, fish and other wildlife. This experience is FUN for the whole family, from the kids to Grandma – we guarantee that this is something you will never forget!

Our OC6 canoe can accommodate up to 6 people, allowing families to enjoy a great ocean experience together, away from the crowds. Our guides are fun, personable, and knowledgeable in addition to being State Champion paddlers.

Most epic experience we had in Maui!

Totally chill attitude and had the most amazing morning on a whale watching outrigger canoe trip. Our concierge had originally booked us for snorkeling trip but we were able to change on the fly and ended up spotting (and observing) three humpback whales up close and personal. Our guide was the best and the entire experience couldn’t have been any better. Highly highly recommend!

Amazing experience

This trip is a must do. Why do a traditional whale watch when you can be up close and personal in a small outrigger?!?! We saw many whales from a distance, breaching, tails, etc. But the highlight was when one popped up right behind us, and almost went under our boat. Incredible to see the size of these animals. Our guide was fabulous, pointing out tidbits about the island and about whales. We actually wanted to do it again the next day but there were no bookings available. Worth every penny!

What a beautiful day!

Everyone had such a wonderful morning. This is by far the most peaceful way to get together with friends and go whale watching. We booked the whole canoe (six seats) and had a great time.

Great outrigger canoe trip!

Excellent experience! We did the outrigger whale watch. The canoe was a lot of fun and easier than we thought it would be. Being on the water (at a safe distance) to see the whales breach was a pretty special opportunity. Our guide was professional, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to spend time with. The next time we’re in town, we’ll try the longer, more intense Molokini Challenge.

Highlight of our trip!

Our group of four, including two teens, booked a whale watching outrigger and it was the highlight of our vacation. Guided by the wonderful Jacob, who was professional, knowledgeable, funny, and patient with all of us. Quote from my daughter, “Next time we gotta’ do this earlier on our vacation so we can go more than once!” On top of the fun of being out there with great views of Maui, we also managed to see whales (multiple times) and dolphins. Jacob heard the dolphins when we were heading in and had us all turn around to see them. Amazing!
