What to expect
Arrive at the Pacific Whale Foundation’s Ocean Store in Lahaina in the late morning. You’ll then board the Foundation’s ‘Ocean Spirit,’ a state-of-the-art luxury catamaran, to begin your whale watching adventure. Your trip will head into the waters near Maui in search of the numerous Humpbacks that travel each year from Alaska to Hawaii to find a mate. During your cruise, you’ll learn about whale behavior from the on-board crew of marine naturalists and biologists as you watch for these denizens of the deep as they rest and mate. Look for mothers with newborn whale calves, or observe male Humpbacks as they compete for females. You’ll even be able to hear the Humpbacks singing underwater, thanks to an underwater hydrophone. Complement your whale watching with an included buffet lunch, featuring Kiawe smoked pork and chicken sliders served with guava barbecue sauce, fresh fruit, chips and salsa and two free alcoholic beverages for those of age. You’ll return back to Lahaina Harbor at the end of your cruise.

Greatest Whale Watching trio Ever
Mar 2020 • Family
My family and I booked the Whale watching Deluxe Tour on March 11, 2020. First the most fabulous trip I’ve ever experienced. Captain Anna and crew onboard Spirit did such a tremendous job taking care of us from the food, drinks and great information on the whales.

The whales were very abundant and surrounded the boat putting on quite the show. Captain Anna kept the boat properly away as not to endanger the whales, the whales seemed to want to come by and say hello.

We all had such a great time and take away many great memories of being up close the these awesome creatures.

If you’re in Maui, please make it a point to book with Pacific Whale Watch. You’ll be glad you did!

Thank you very much Captain Anna, Chris, Chris and Siera for an awesome trip. Hope to sail with you again soon.

Sincerely

The Jeffers Family and Taylor

Great trip!
Feb 2020
Our day was a beautiful one on the water, and we were able to see and enjoy the water and wonderful whale sightings on a beautiful catamaran.
The all female crew was great, and the naturalist was knowledgeable and gave us lot of interesting and informative facts. The lunch served was ok, and the drinks were plentiful.
We would highly recommend this tour, and appreciate the Pacific Whale Foundation and all they are doing. We will definitely return and take the tour again!

The captain, and her crew, were quite knowledgeable, and gave us a great tour. The luncheon was pretty good, as well. We saw plenty of whales and heard explanations as to what was going on. We learned quite a lot, and it was fun.

Great whale watch trip
Feb 2020
We really enjoyed this day. The captain of the boat was excellent, as were the crew and naturalist. They were able to find many active whales for us to observe. We learned a great deal about humpbacked whales and saw both adults and young. The buffet was fine. I highly recommend this tour and I especially like that this is a non-profit organization, so you feel like you are helping your n a small way.

Second trip was just as great as our first
Jan 2020
We went out on the Whalewatch Sail Deluxe tour a few days ago and had an amazing experience. This was our second time going out with PWF (we went out two years ago) and would recommend them to friends and family in a heartbeat. Captain Dan and the rest of the crew were very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. We were fortunate enough to hang out with a momma, her baby, and a male suitor for a good part of our tour and saw the baby whale breach a number of times. Food & drinks were delicious and plentiful. Can't recommend this tour enough!

Finally a Sighting!
May 2019 • Couples
We realized that it was the end of the season but it was a good day for a boat ride. Cruised for 3/4 of the tour with no whales. As we we approaching the end, mom, boyfriend, and two youngsters decided to put on a show. We were able to watch the four along with a pod of dolphins. Great end to our Hawaiian cruise.

Fantastic Experience!
Feb 2019 • Couples
What a great experience seeing humpback whales in their natural habitat. Lots of whales! The weather was rainy and cool but the excitement of seeing mother, calf and protective male kept you warm. Seeing whales breach was really a thrill. The buffet was just right for this kind of activity. The captain and her crew were professional, friendly and very informative. I would recommend this particular whale watching trip to anyone.

Doesn't get any better than this!
Mar 2018 • Couples
We have been on many whale watches over the course of several years and this particular outing stands out as the best. One of the interesting things about whale watching is that you can never predicate what you are going to see. Our experiences have always been enjoyable since just the anticipation is enough to fill in the otherwise uneventful moments. The one thing you can and should be able tp predict is the service and experience the captain and his crew (the naturalists) provide for their visitors. On this day, on this catamaran, it couldn't have been better. Hans our captain maneuvered the craft around the whales with ease, allowing us to see whales and porpoises in playful pursuit. All the while this was going on, Steven the head naturalist, was enthusiastically and with providing narrative on hump back whales. While all this was going on Mikayla, Steven's counterpart was preparing a delicious lunch and manning an open bar. The weather, the sea life, and the crew of Pacific Ocean Foundation made this experience one we'll never forget, truly remarkable.

Bravo! 5 Stars isn't nearly enough!
Feb 2018 • Couples
Wow! I am so impressed with PacWhaleFoundation! What a great group of professional and knowledgeable people.
In all fairness, we had a very active whale watch, seeing a full breach, a school of spinner dolphins and the elusive False Killer Whale.
That being said, what really made our tour great was the knowledgeable and professional crew. Annie (the Whale Whisperer) was our Naturalist. She was absolutely amazing! She was so incredibly knowledgeable about the whales and other sea creatures that we encountered. We peppered her with questions the entire 3 hours and it was impossible to stump her. In addition, her enthusiasm was intoxicating. She got so excited every time we saw something! It was so much fun.
I wish I remembered the names of the rest of the crew (it was the captains birthday!). Outstanding everyone.
The boat was very nice...not too big and certainly not overcrowded. This was a lunch cruise and the meal was very good...although I was too busy watching whales to eat very much!
This is a great tour and I highly recommend it!!!!
