It’s about winter time in Maui and you know what that means? It’s the 2018-2019 whale watching season! The humpback whales have finally arrived and that’s great news for all of us whale lovers out there. Have you been planning a trip to Maui for quite some time and are you as excited as we are to see the whales? Well if this is your first time or perhaps your 20th time whale watching, we still have some tips for you. Here are our top tips for whale watching in 2018.
- Know where to go: This is major! On Maui there are two great spots for whale watching and that happens to be along Maui’s south side and its west side shores. Whether you’re planning a trip upcountry or to the north side of the island, don’t forget to travel to Kihei, Lahaina, Kaanapali, Honokowai, Wailea and Maalaea to capture a glimpse of these majestic creatures.
- Book a Maui whale watching boat tour: This is a must for any whale enthusiast. There’s no better way to get up close and personal with these astonishing creatures than by booking a boat tour out on the Pacific. If this sounds like a good idea to you, then simple google whale watch tours on Maui and have at it! You can’t go wrong.
- Spend as much time near the water: While Maui’s lovely upcountry and forest areas are great for hiking and picnics, they don’t exactly give you the views of the whales that you desire. That’s why it’s important to spend as much time swimming, snorkeling, surfing or just walking by the water. The more often you’re by the shore the more likely it is you’ll see the whales. Not only that, but if your in the water and they are near, you can hear them singing when you put your ears underwater!!!
