Pacific Whale Foundation


Classic Whalewatch Special Ma’alaea

Our Classic Whalewatch Special is exactly the same as our Classic Whalewatches, except even more affordable. We offer these special cruises as part of our goal to make whalewatching accessible to all.

Each trip is led by a team of Pacific Whale Foundation’s certified Marine Naturalists, who explain and interpret the social behavior of humpback whales. Listen to whale songs through underwater hydrophones, watch mothers and calves interact and see males compete for females.

Whale sightings are guaranteed on all Pacific Whale Foundation whalewatches (from November 26 – May 15) or you go again free. We are proud of our 97% sighting

success rate.
