Our small group experience takes place in a big boat atmosphere! A maximum of 20 guests onboard allows our captain and crew the chance to focus on providing each guest with the very best experience. Our boat is really what sets us apart from other companies- we have a fast, fun and extremely comfortable boat where everyone has a cushioned seat, large open platform for viewing the whales and fast, quiet engines to help us maximize our time with the whales during your tour. Knowledgeable captains and crew who have worked among the whales for years will share whale facts and answer your questions. It's a great photo opportunity and most people who do it come back for more!


  • Bottled water - To do our part in eliminating single use plastics, we provide a large jug of refreshing water and paper cups - totally free! Unfortunately there was no option to specify "not bottled" water...

What to expect


Aloha! Our small group whale watching tours are fun for all ages and a great opportunity to experience seeing the Humpback Whales for yourself! Check in at Lahaina Harbor 20-30 minutes prior to your departure time. We appreciate your patience throughout our boarding process. After a quick safety briefing, we will head out to find the most active whales. Our Captains and Crew will share their knowledge of the whales and are happy to answer any questions you may have. We do our best to provide the most personalized and exciting tours possible, but it's also important to realize that these amazing animals deserve a great amount of respect. We follow all regulations regarding distances, approach limits and make a big effort to avoid participating in any overcrowding of their space. Wear what's comfortable, make sure you have space on your camera and that the battery is charged and come out ready to have a good time!

April 2022

We did the whale watching tour on 4/13 (2 adults and 2 teens). We had moderate expectations due to it being the end of the season. But it turned out great! We saw a mama and baby whale jump out of the water multiple times and they even swam right under our boat! The staff was extremely knowle...
