Pacific Whale Foundation information
The Lanaʻi Snorkel & Dolphin Watch Cruise and several whale-watching excursions leave from Lahaina Harbor. Other trips depart from Maʻalaea Harbor to the south. The whale-watching cruises, which depart several times a day in winter, are immensely popular. In the unlikely event you don’t spot whales, your next trip is free. Well-versed naturalists add context to the trips.
For the standard whale-watching trips, one child under six is free for every one adult. For a small group experience, try the Raft Whalewatch Cruise (adult $45, child seven to 12 years $33) on a smooth, anti-slamming raft.
The company also offers half-day volunteering opportunities in Maui through its Volunteering on Vacation program. Visit the website for a program calendar.
