Maui Pictures - Whale Watching
Maui Pictures - Whale Watching - can be enjoyed from Whale Boats, from Beaches, from Kayaks, and from Scenic Outlooks. One of the best places in the world to observe whales is in the relatively calm, shallow seas surrounding the Hawaiian Islands – the only known breeding and calving ground for humpback whales in the United States. It’s impossible to be in Hawaii during from December through April and not see whales offshore. Each winter, the Hawaiian Islands, one of the most remote island archipelagos in the world, become home to 8,000-10,000 humpback whales. Why humpback whales travel to tropical areas like Hawaii each year is still unknown, but the warm, clear, shallow, protected waters make Hawaii one of the best natural laboratories on the planet to study Humpbacks.
