Maui Whale Watching Season

One of the questions we are most asked is When is Maui’s Whale Season?”

Typically the first humpback whales arrive in early October and can stay through June, though officially whale season is December 15th through April 15th with most whale watching tour operators guaranteeing whale sightings from January 1st through March 15th which is referred to as the ‘Whale Soup’ period because there are so many whales.

Yes, the whales are back and we don’t just mean back in Maui.  The number of Humpbacks world wide has greatly increased.  Finally some great marine life news!
