Experience Whale Season
Every year between December and May, Maui’s most beloved marine visitors, majestic humpback whales, return to our warm waters by the thousands. For an awe-inspiring glimpse of these gentle giants, choose the whale-watching experience in Maui that’s perfect for you.
Whale Watch Photo Excursion
Experience the humpback whales with two of Maui's most knowledgeable experts and top photographers, Dan and John Cesere. Join the underwater fine-art photography duo on an incomparable, highly customizable Hawaiian whale-watching and photo adventure aboard one of Maui's finest vessels.
Step aboard the Alii Nui catamaran for a two-hour whale-watching trip in Maui. This first-class voyage includes round-trip transportation to the harbour, full bar and beverage service, an array of pupus (appetizers), and guaranteed whale sightings (or they’ll treat you to another whale watching trip!).
Explore two islands – and the whales in between them – on Sunshine Helicopter’s Molokai tour in Maui. See the highlights of West Maui, then cross the Pailolo Channel to discover Hawaii’s tallest waterfalls and stunning sea cliffs on Molokai’s remote North Shore. This unique Maui whale-watching perspective will certainly create lasting memories.
Discover Maui's gentle giants through the underwater lens of the Cesere Brothers. This dynamic photography duo spends their days capturing marine moments beyond your wildest imagination and volunteers some of their time in the winters to the Keiki Kohola Project. Then, once a week, they bring their unbelievable images to the Resort to share with our guests.
Listen to the whales during your in-ocean massage
The Spa's Wai Vari water treatment therapy is performed by specialized massage therapists in the tropical ocean. During the height of whale season, participants are likely to actually hear the whales singing underwater while experiencing this treatment.
