Maui Whale Watching – Guaranteed Whale Sightings in Peak Whale Season December-April
At 42-50 feet in length and weighing in at 25 to 40 tons, Pacific Humpback whales are the fifth largest whale species in the world (source: Smithsonian). During Maui’s whale season from November through May (peak season being December-April), it is even possible to see whales from the beach. In fact, many people say that Maui is the best island in Hawaii to whale watch from the shoreline. However, in order to have a close-up and immersive whale watching experience, it is recommended to take one of the various Maui whale watching tours.
This way, not only will you observe these majestic creatures up close, you will also benefit from the knowledge offered by your whale watching guides, many of whom are certified naturalists or marine biologists.
Maui whale watching tours depart from the Kihei Boat Ramp (southwestern area of Maui, convenient to Wailea and Kihei resorts) and Maalaea Harbor (centrally located halfway between Kihei and Lahaina). Some boats even launch directly from Ka’anapali Beach. Lastly, for those who prefer to steer their own ship, you can see whales on a private Maui kayaking tour.
Molokini Snorkeling Tours – Snorkel the Molokini Crater
Molokini is a crescent-shaped, partially submerged volcanic crater which forms a small, uninhabited islet between the islands of Maui and Kahoʻolawe. Molokini is a world famous snorkeling and scuba diving destination due to its overall uniqueness, abundant ocean life (over 250 species of tropical fish), and exceptional visibility up to 150 feet deep. The most commonly observed aquatic life while snorkeling Molokini include black triggerfish, yellow tang, Moorish idol, parrotfish, raccoon butterflyfish, and bluefin trevally.
Small whitetip reef sharks, moray eels, rays, octopus, and whale sharks have also been observed at Molokini. The best time to snorkel at Molokini is during the early morning. Molokini snorkel trips typically include the boat ride and all snorkel gear, with optional wetsuits (for warmth), underwater cameras, and snuba equipment available for rent. Food and drinks (alcoholic and otherwise) are also typically included or available for purchase.
Usually a Molokini snorkel tour will snorkel at Molokini first and then proceed to a second snorkeling spot such as Turtle Town or Coral Gardens. Click the button below to view discounted Molokini snorkeling tours.
Maui Helicopter Tours – See Maui from the Air

You can even do a multi-island Maui helicopter tour including flyovers of the neighboring islands of Molokai, Lanai, and Kauai. You simply haven’t seen Maui unless you’ve seen it from the best view possible – the sky. Thrill-seekers will appreciate an exciting, doors-off helicopter tour for an extra dose of adrenaline.

Haleakala Sunrise and National Park Tours – Maui Volcano Tours
Rising above the clouds at 10,023 feet (3,055 meters), Haleakala is the best spot on Maui for watching the sunrise and sunset. In fact, Haleakala is well known as one of the best places in all of Hawaii to watch the sunrise.
Nothing can prepare you for the experiences and feelings you will have on the summit of Haleakala volcano. The landscape—deeply sculpted, richly colored, and forever changing—is unlike anywhere else on planet Earth. Many people say the interior of the Haleakala crater resembles the surface of Mars.
The best way to visit Haleakala summit is on a guided Haleakala sightseeing tour.
