Maui Whale Watching

"For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it."―Jacques-Yves Cousteau

 


It's surreal to see and hear Pacific humpback whales end their 6-8 week journey from the feeding grounds of Alaska to the shallow breeding grounds of Maui (and other nearby islands). The first whale sightings usually occur in October; however, the best time to see these whales is anytime from January 15th – March 31st (peak season is usually February). Official whale season is December 15th – May 15th.

 

 


If you have a Vimeo account you can watch (rent) the movie here.

It's a pretty amazing experience to see humpback whales up close and in the wild. I was super stoked when I took these photos recently off the coast of Maui (in March of 2019):
