Join us for an intimate Whale Watch adventure aboard the all new Reef Explorer.

Whale season on Maui is a magical time, and it begins each December when thousands of Humpback Whales return to give birth in the protected waters of the Hawaiian Islands.

We offer small group whale watch trips inside Maui’s Marine Humpback Sanctuary, with up close and intimate viewing.

Our fast and agile Super Raft stays away from crowds and sits at water level, giving guests a close to the water feeling, while seeing these creatures tail slap, wave fins and show off a full body breach!

Take in the views while our seasoned guides educate guests about whale behavior.

Reef Explorer is equipped with an on board hydrophone to allow passengers to listen below the surface, as whales communicate with each other and their newly born calves!
