    Delight in this amazing two hour whale watch leaving from Kaanapali. You start off a little wet as you load directly from the beach through the surf onto the boat! Aboard this catamaran Trilogy naturalist guides are dedicated to sharing accurate information about the endangered humpback whale and its habitat. The goal is to give you a meaningful encounter with these magnificent creatures without disturbing their behavior, while recognizing the approach limits of 100 yards. Trilogy has hydrophones on board, so you are often able to hear the whales sing their incredible songs. If no whales are sighted, you're invited to come again without charge. You will enjoy a light breakfast or lunch appetizers and beverages. For guests 21 and over, two complimentary premium beverages are also included. See the beautiful coastline of Maui while having the opportunity to witness these massive mammals. Reserve your Whale watch on a Trilogy catamaran today.

    Great crew, perfect day, really enjoyed this.



    Lesley Wake
    This was a great experience! The guides were so nice and extremely knowledgeable. They were constantly coming around with food or drinks and answered all of our questions. We got to see a bunch of whales, including a really close calf. I liked it so much I booked a second tour a few days later before I left Maui. I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone wanting to see whales in a comfortable environment!

    I went on Tuesday, Jan 24 at the 8:30 tour (I don't remember the captain and guides names though, but they were all great).



    Pat Friehauf
    The crew were very knowledgable. Food service was great. A fun trip.



    Randall Lundeen
    We had Captain Seth. Very good whale watch. The whole crew was great. We hit the mother lode. Saw probably 15 whales and a dozen breaches. Awesome!!!!



    Karen Brubaker
