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.
