Whale-Watching

Alaska might be the place to observe humpbacks in summer, but from December to May their favorite spots remain the shallow waters off Lahaina along with other parts of West Maui and South Maui. Once this former whaling port hunted the marine mammals; today locals celebrate them with numerous whale-watching cruises from Lahaina Harbor. Head out to see humpbacks playfully spouting, surfacing and tail slapping, not to mention breaching—launching some or all of their bodies high above the waves.
