What’s the Best Time of Day?

Whale watching in Maui is one of the most popular activities to do when visiting this amazing tropical island. There are many questions to ask when planning your whale watching tour, including what is the best time of day to see whales in Maui?

Good News!

The good news is that humpback whales are not on our schedule. They do not have specific periods of time for rest or play, rather whales have intervals of activity throughout the day! This means you can whale watch in Maui sunrise to sunset!

Early-bird whale watching typically checks in around 6:15 am and includes whale watching while enjoying the sunrise! There are more than a dozen whale watching tours throughout the day and the final trip ends with a sunset cruise and playful whale activity. The good news is that the best time to see whales in Maui is the time that you choose!

Morning whale watching tours give you the rest of the day to browse shops in Lahaina Town, eat amazing food or hang out at the beach. Afternoon whale watches do the same and are a fun activity to do after a lazy day sunning on one of Maui’s amazing beaches or sleeping in because every vacation should include some relaxation!
