Simply the BEST whale watch in Maui.

Maui’s newest and only custom-built Super Raft is an unmatched whale watch experience. Luxury, comfort, and up close viewing on our ultra-stable 60 ft vessel.

Small groups and no crowds, feel the excitement of tail slaps, fin waves and the full-body breach as our friends onboard naturalists explain whale behavior.

We operate in Maui’s Marine Humpback Sanctuary, where thousands of Humpback Whales return each year to give birth. Our onboard hydrophones allow guests to listen below the surface, as whales communicate with each other and their newly born calves!

Tours are offered twice daily at 1:00 pm and 3:00 p.m. Reef Explorer has two onboard restrooms for your comfort.
