Sail Maui Whale Watching Tours

Sail Maui • Maui, Hawaiian Islands
Maui is the place to see humpback whales!
Each year these magnificent creatures migrate south from Alaska, and although you can see them throughout Hawaii, the ‘Au ‘au channel off the coast of Maui boasts the greatest number. Our warm, relatively shallow, and protected waters make an ideal location for the humpbacks to mate and give birth to their calves. These whales are known for their acrobatics and are often seen fully breaching out of the ocean!

Sail with the Whales Lahaina
This seasonal whale watch embarks from Lahaina Harbor. Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck and join the Captain and Crew in keeping a lookout. When we have enough wind, this trip is exclusively sailing, so relax onboard without the drone of a motor, and we’ll head to wherever the whales may be!

Sail with the Whales Ma'alaea
We’ll embark from Ma'alaea Harbor and set sail in the afternoon trade winds. Join the Captain and Crew in keeping a lookout and refresh with a variety of beverages, including wine and local beer. This trip is exclusively sailing, so relax onboard without the drone of a motor, and we’ll head to wherever the whales may be! Sailing out of Ma'alaea can be quite exhilarating, so while we will do our best to get as close to the humpbacks as we are able in the breeze, this trip can be more of an adventure than a mellow tour if the winds are up.

'Alihilani Whale Watch
Enjoy this 2-hour whale watch aboard our brand new luxurious sailing catamaran ‘Alihilani. This seasonal whale watch embarks from Lahaina Harbor. Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck and join the Captain and Crew in keeping a lookout. When we have enough wind, this trip is exclusively sailing, so relax onboard without the drone of a motor, and we’ll head to wherever the whales may be! Details
