Whale Watching

Maui whale watching

In the winter season, Humpback whales migrate across the globe to Maui waters in order to mate and give birth. At peak season, it's very difficult to look out at the ocean and not see some kind of surface behavior by these huge mammals. Watching them from a boat breaching nearby, singing their songs below you, and enjoying a good sail while you're at it is worth the world.

Other Maui Activities

Maui Helicopter Tours

Though helicopter tours are very expensive, they're often worth every penny (especially if you've never been up in one before.) You'll areas on the island of Maui that can't be seen in any other way. Waterfalls and valleys that can't be traveled to on foot or by car can be accessed on a Maui helicopter tour.

Whale Watch

Humpback whales journey from Alaska to Maui waters every year during our winter (December 15th to April 15th.) While here, these massive mammals mate and give birth to their young. The surface activity witnessed is something that brings visitors back to Maui year after year in order on a Maui whale watch.

Scuba Diving

There are countless world-class diving spots around Maui. From the Cathedrals off of Lanai to the backside wall of Molokini Crater, you'll find locations that meet the desire of any level diver. Learn more about scuba diving in Maui.


Molokini Crater is a volcanic atoll close from the south coast of Maui. It has an arched shape that keeps swell from disturbing the clarity. It is also a natural preserve for both fish and birds, further enhancing their symbiotic relationships. It's always an adventure when snorkeling Molokini.

Surfing Maui

There's no question that we love to surf in Maui. The waves aren't quite as good as on Kauai or Oahu, but we get our fair share. For those learning, we have plenty of spots that are conducive to amateur learning. For advanced surfers, we have some pretty heavy waves during the winter season. Learn more about surfing in Maui.

Free Activities

Free activities include going to the beach or going hiking. There are a good amount of things to do in Maui that are free (or cheap) if you look hard enough. Look for activities near your hotel and for things to do that don't require much fuel. Take a look at this list of things to do in Maui for more ideas.

Costly Activities

Cost for activities can sometimes be an issue. Some of the most expensive activities include helicopter tours, private boat charters, and ziplining. Helicopters and boats rely on expensive fuel and crew members. Ziplining can cost a lot depending on who you book with. Make sure to look around!
