Rafting is a great way to discover whales fast from a convenient Wailea/Kihei departure. Pods are spotted quickly allowing lots of time for viewing and listening through a hydrophones. Humpback whales abound in Maui waters from and are often seen nursing their young.
1½-Hour Whale Watch Rafting
A great way to get to the whales fast from a convenient Wailea/ Kihei departure. Ample free parking is available at the Kihei Boat Ramp less than 10 minutes from all Kihei and Wailea Resorts. Morning departures offer calm conditons on Maui's south shore where visiting Humpbacks are often seen nursing their young during these times. Close encounters of 100 yards or less sometimes require that we "stretch" a tour to ensure the safety of the whales and to operate within federal regulations.
2½-Hour Express Whale Watch/ Molokini Snorkel Rafting Tour
A great way to combine snorkeling at Molokini with a whale watching adventure on a fast and maneuverable rigid hulled inflatable. We almost always make it to Molokini on this one but if conditions are not favorable, a shoreline alternate may be selected. Your passage to and from Molokini will take you through waters laden with Humpback whales with a high percentage of mother/calf/escort pods. One hour is devoted to snorkeling, and 1½ hours to passage and whale watching.
