Maui County is world-famous as the destination for the Pacific Northwest humpback whales. The migration crosses 3,100 miles of ocean each season. The humpback whale season in Maui lasts from November to May of every year. These huge mammals travel between 3 and 9 mph at over 1,000 miles per month without stopping. Humpbacks make this journey in groups called pods that congregate for a couple days at a time. The pods stay together loosely and break apart, with the exception of the calves and mothers.

We are so excited to announce our first sighting this season of Humpback whales in Maui!
Still sporadic and mostly far away these beautiful giants showed themselves on the Sea Monkey Morning Snorkel Adventure on November 6, 2016.
Without a doubt, one of the most amazing marine wildlife adventures you’ll ever have the opportunity to partake in – is a chance to witness the majesty of the North Pacific Humpback Whales in their natural environment. These magical mammals grace Hawaiian waters and shorelines for their annual winter migration through the North Pacific Ocean. We are very fortunate to offer the most spectacular Whale Watching excursions to our customers on board of Sea Monkey! Call us today to schedule your private or semi-private whale watching tour!
