From Ma'alaea Harbor: Whale Watching Tours Aboard the Malolo

85 Reviews
Tours Culture & history Activities Good for groups Reseller exclusions Nature & adventure Outdoor activities Rentals

Climb aboard the Malolo, a high-speed catamaran, for a whale watching and sailing experience. Watch whales breach and listen to them sing while you enjoy a refreshing island cocktail.


  • Set sail on a high-speed catamaran and watch whales in their natural habitat
  • Enjoy underwater hydrophones to hear whale songs as you cruise along the channel
  • Learn about the whales visiting Maui from your experienced captain and crew
  • Watch the whales slap their fins, splash their tails, and breach


Depart from Maalaea Harbor, easily located off the highway with ample parking. This high-speed catamaran is located at Slip 87 near Coast Guard Station. While on board, enjoy complimentary juices and sodas, and a variety of alcoholic beverages. The optimal whale watching season starts in December and goes through April, during which thousands of humpback whales return to Hawaii for a few months each year to mate and give birth. Depending on the whales’ behavior during your two-hour whale watching trip, you may see any number of whale activity happening, from tail flapping to full body breaching. Keep your eyes peeled for whales slapping the surface with pectoral fins (their very long side fins), flukes (the tail), and the peduncle (the strong muscles attaching the tail to the rest of the body). Keep your fingers crossed for a breach - this is when a whale rises completely out of the water and crashes down again. And most importantly, don’t forget to bring your camera to capture a picture of these amazing animals.
