We really love what we do.

We’re Locally Owned and Operated.

Since 1982, we have been dedicated to sharing our knowledge and experience of Maui’s ocean through whale watching tours, snorkeling and supporting education and research. Our goal is to encourage eco-friendly decisions and appreciation of the Hawaii paradise we are a part of.

Support Our Whale and Marine Research.

We donate our vessels, time and resources to whale researchers that are working to better understand Maui’s marine environment and in turn protect and advocate for it. Check out our blog to learn more about our ongoing research projects and how to support them.

  • “We had a close encounter with a 30-ton Humpback Whale…We also saw
    about a dozen breaches by whales, a giant school of spinner dolphins and a gigantic turtle all on the same 2 hour tour. I highly recommend these guys”

  • “We have been on many whale watch trips, but have never experienced what we saw on this one. The large humpback male whale noticed us and came over to our boat to show off. He swam around and under our boat!

The Closest Whale Watching Encounters in Maui.

We specialize in photographic, non-threatening close encounters with Dolphins, Whales & Turtles in Lahaina, Hawaii! During our Maui whale watching tours and private charters, we have hosted film crews from National Geographic, BBC Wild- life, and other elite marine life photographers!

Because humpback whales are protected in Maui, we do not approach humpback whales closer than 100 yards or swim with whales or dolphins, but we still find ourselves having unique close encounters as these marine mammals love approaching our small, low to the water, friendly rafting vessels! Join us for our seasonal Whale Watching on Maui tours from December to April and snorkel year-round, departing from Lahaina Harbor, Maui!
