Overview
The Magic Merman is the only raft-style boat that departs from Ka'anapali Beach. Exploring with us is the best way to get as close to the whales as possible. Our captains will find the whales and our highly knowledgeable crew will provide you with facts about the incredible Northern Pacific Humpback Whales.

Wow, you got the full show! One of the things that makes being on the waters of Maui so exciting is that you never know what you will see. The anticipation is what really makes it an adventure. Thank you for your review and we truly hope to see you again soon. Mahalo!

My wife and I had a wonderful time on our whale watch with The Magic Merman. We called only a few hours before the excursion and Austin told us he could assure us a spot. Our crew, Samantha and Sarah, were fun, and very knowledgeable. They took us to a spot that really paid off

Seeing the whales from a "small" boat is the best way to really experience the amazing whales. But breaching 5 times in a row?! That's amazing! Thank you for your wonderful review and we hope to see you again very soon. Mahalo!
