Whales in Maui
See and 'hear' the whales on Maui.
If you are heading to Hawaii this winter, don’t miss the whales. They show up around November and hang out through May.
For a truly unique outrigger experience, join Kevin Hoke and his crew for an hour of fun education on the waters off Wailea Beach. Kevin’s grandmother was the last pure Hawaiian to be raised in an isolated environment on the North Shore of Oahu and trained to become a leader and teacher of Hawaiian culture. Kevin is carrying on this traditional as he takes an ordinary turtle tour and turns it into a history, geography, cultural and meteorological adventure. And if you go during whale season – you will get to see and HEAR these gorgeous mammals.
