Full description
Takes off on this sunset whale-watching adventure from Maalaea Harbor on board the The Malolo catamaran. Enjoy a beautiful Maui sunset and watch humpback whales in their natural habitat. 

During your two-hour whale-watching trip, you may see the whales slap the water's surface with their pectoral fins (their very long side fins), their flukes (their tails), and their peduncles (the strong muscles that attach their tails to the rest of their bodies). Keep your fingers crossed for a breach—this is when a whale rises completely out of the water and crashes down again! Don’t forget your camera.
