Sail with the Whales Details
Whale season is Erica’s favorite time of year, and we’ve been on a lot of whale watching tours over the years because it never gets old. We like Sail Maui for their spacious boat and friendly crew. We are so happy to see they have opened this tour in Ma’alaea Harbor after losing their slips in Lahaina Harbor.
Sail Maui specializes in, you guessed it, sailing! No noisy motor drumming your whole trip, which makes the experience so much more relaxing. We love their Paragon II vessel and the fact that their whale watching tours cap at 25 guests. You have plenty of room to roam around the catamaran and you can get a great view no matter where you are.
Maui is the best place for whale watching in Hawaii and you’ll be in good hands. Set sail for 1.5 hours of whale watching (check in is 30min prior to departure). Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, fruit, sandwiches, and dessert are available during the tour. All that’s left for you to do is enjoy the ride and keep your eyes peeled for those magnificent creatures you set out looking for.
