On our 'Pacific Whale Foundation' Deluxe Whale Watch cruise out of Maalaea, Maui, we were fortunate to see a great number of young whales, as well a competition pod of six Humpback males competing for a female close to Kaholawe. The seating on the boat was assigned and "socially distant', masks were worn except when lunch and beverages were served, two on-board ecologists help to explain the marine environment. An excellent experience !

Our hostess and narrator for this adventure told us at the beginning of our deluxe “3-hour cruise “ that first-time whale watchers bring luck to the boat. This certainly proved true. During our cruise, there were many first-time whale watchers on the boat and many, many whale sightings. The boat had barely left the shore when the first whale was sighted. The highlight of the cruise was a whale breach approximately 20-30 yards away! Definitely first-time whale watcher luck! Also, lots of yummy food and drink, including mai tais and local brews. The narrator did a particularly fabulous job in explaining what we were seeing and answering any questions we had! I definitely recommend this deluxe whale-watching cruise!!!
