Have you ever seen a real live humpback whale? We offer an awesome fully narrated 2 hour whale watch on the Quicksilver during whale season, December through April. There is no better place to see a humpback whale than Maalaea Bay in Maui, often referred to as the "cradle of the humpback," for its high concentration of the magnificent humpback whales. If you haven't had the experience of seeing a humpback whale in the wild, it's a must do on your vacation in Maui during whale season. The humpback whales are amazingly active during their short stay in Maui. They are here to mate and give birth. The warm, relatively shallow water of Maalaea Bay is the ideal place for these activities. When not in Hawaii, the Humpback whales spend their time feeding in Alaska. It's hard to explain how awe inspiring seeing a humpback whale really is. Experience for yourself.
