If you are on Maui in the winter, a whale watch tour through Pacific Whale Foundation is a must! Even if it's not the season, it's a great place to learn about whales. PWF does a great job guiding, educating, and bringing awareness of whale and ocean marine life to the public. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable. A hi-light of my Maui trip is doing the sunrise whale tour and I got to see over 7 whales, 2 of which swam super close and under the boat twice!!! I saw breaching, 3 jumps!!! I wish my camera was quicker in snapping the pictures. It was soo awesome and crazy seeing it in close view.

We did a snorkel trip with Pacific Whale Foundation out to Molokini Crater. The cruise was pretty good - they had a great photographer to take underwater shots. But my sense is the snorkeling was much better closer to shore.

Took a whale watching tour out of lahaina boat was jammed unless your in the front of the line you'll have bad seats and no view. They say it's good for kids it's not had my 5 mo old and 3 yr old couldn't walk around with the baby from shirty seat and the 3 yr old saw nothing. Lays of sharp metal parts that could slice you up all over the vessel. Crew had surly attitudes and they pushed everyone to eat the ghastly breakfast sandwiches. An to top it off the lady in the store tried to charge my wife over a thousand dollars for two tshirts and a hat. Stay away they suck you have been warned

Book with pacific whale foundation if you come in February for whale watching. It's great because they guarantee sightings and it's for the preservation of whales!
Make sure to get the sunset raft if you can. I didn't because I was staying in kihei but it looks like that one is more up close and intimate.

The best whale watch on Maui. PWF also has many other ocean tours that involve everything in the marine environment. When you support PWF all proceeds go to whale research. Humpbacks, although making a good recovery, are still and endangered species. Supporting research efforts to assist recovery only makes sense.

We do not have first-hand knowledge, but interesting Pacific Whale Foundation activities turn up frequently on Event's Lists for Maui. They offer snorkeling and diving tours, whale watching, hikes, beach cleanup events for visitors, nighttime tide pool explorations for kids, and festivals. Our impression is these educational activities are well-attended and well-received. We urge our guests to check out Pacific Whale Foundation's website to learn what might be going on during their stay.
