Whale Watching

Hawai‘i’s official whale season begins on December 15 and continues through May 15. Boats leave from both Mā‘alaea Harbor (25 min drive time) and Lāhainā Harbor (45 min Drive Time). Whale watches are generally two hours long and many are guaranteed (you go again until you see whales!). Tours are offered throughout the day but mornings offer better ocean conditions.
