FREQUENTLY ASKED WHALE WATCHING QUESTIONS

1. What happens if it is raining?

If it seems like a possibly rainy day we recommend bringing a jacket or poncho. Sometimes it is just a passing shower and we will continue to safely operate our tours. Our Captains are constantly checking weather forecasts and if any tour is deemed unsafe for any reason, it will be cancelled. As always, your safety is our number one priority. 

2. Can I swim with the whales?

It is illegal to swim with whales in Maui County since we are part of the Hawaiian Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary. We, therefore, do not swim with the whales. 

3. What's the best time of day to go whale watching?

All day every day! We guarantee whale sightings on all of our trips December 1 through April 1st. Whales are unpredictable and can exhibit surface behaviors during all of our tour times! Base the time that you choose to go on YOUR schedule!

4. Do you have life jackets onboard? I can't swim.

Since we will not be getting in the water during your whale watching charter, you will not need to wear a life jacket while onboard. Rest assured, we are fully equipped with all coast guard requirements, including life jackets. If it makes you feel more comfortable wearing one, please let us know and we will happily provide you with one.
