Each year the Pacific Humpback Whales migrate from Alaska to the coastal waters off Maui to nurse their young and swim in the shallow warm waters. The Teralani's spacious catamarans give guests a unique way to experience these beautiful creatures with some of Maui's best scenery as the backdrop. To enhance the experience, there is a marine naturalist on board to help educate guests about the whales and what they do here while they are in Hawai'i. Guests will actually be able to listen to the whale songs live on the under water hydrophone. Also, the whales may not be the only marine life you see while on the early morning whale watch. Guests often see dolphins and Hawaiian sea turtles too!

The opportunity for getting wet is greater with this type of boarding, so it's very important that all electronic equipment is protected.
