Ultimate Whale Watch - Pacific Whale Foundation on Maui
Ever wonder what it's like to be a whale researcher? Now you can spend time with researchers on a personally guided, small group tour of the research center. Your research adventure begins over a complimentary continental breakfast of muffins, fresh fruit, coffee and tea at Porto Restaurant. Your group will receive an intimate presentation about whale behaviors and an introduction to whale watching. Your small group and your researchers will then enjoy a 2 hour whale watching tour. Your group will then return to the research lab to recap what you saw. This is a special opportunity to interact with our researchers and marine biologists and learn about their ongoing research in Hawaii and other locations.

Average Product Rating: 5.0 / 5
As good as advertised, the whale watch was very informative, staff very friendly and although it can not be a guarantee, the whales were in great numbers. Loved the tour.
This was a great tour. If you want a smaller boat, with real whale studies going on, and low to the water, this is it. The best part, you get high quality photos from the PWF! Emailed right to you, so you can sit back and enjoy the tour without having to try and capture your trip on your own. Lots of time to talk and ask questions and the crew was great.
