Visiting Maui from November thru
April virtually guarantees humpback whale sightings,
often from shore! When we were in Maui in December, humpbacks
were breaching right off the beach and putting on a real show.
When we went out in the boat to go diving, several whales on each trip
joined us for lunch and frolicked in the water. We've been
told that in February, the best month for whale watching in Maui, that
hundreds of whales group offshore, even in Lahaina Harbor, and you can
hardly walk around town without seeing breaching whales.
The reason for the abundance of
whales during this time of year is that they come from all over the
world to Maui each winter to calve. This also means that you
have a really good chance to see some baby whales too! A
snorkeling or diving trip hardly occurs where you don't hear the songs
of the humpbacks echoing through the water, and just maybe you'll even
see one underwater!
