    What to Expect
    Whalewatch with the experts on Maui's top-rated ecotour and see these amazing creatures in their natural wild habitat. The “Plus” in this exclusive offering, however, means less people.

    For those that prefer a bigger vessel whalewatching experience, but want a less crowded viewing environment, then this is the tour for you.  Join the experts at Pacific Whale Foundation on Ocean Quest, a 65 foot, double-deck catamaran which will run with a maximum of 70 passengers. This gives everyone a spot at the rail to view our amazing humpback whales.

    This Whalewatch is led by certified Marine Naturalists for fun and informative interpretation of humpback whale behaviors and characteristics. Watch mothers and calves interact, see males compete for females, hear underwater whale songs – every trip is unique.

    Whale sightings are guaranteed or go again free on another whalewatch of equal or lesser value within one year. We are proud of our 97% sighting success rate.

    Children under 5 are free. Children 5-12 are free (one child per paying adult)

    • Underwater hydrophones to hear whale songs
    • Onboard Jr. Naturalist Program for kids
    • Reef Safe Sunscreen – Small bottles available at cost ($3) onboard vessel
    • Filtered water
    • Full-color marine wildlife poster
    • Whale sightings guaranteed or go again free

    Wonderful cruise. We selected this particular cruise because it offered a larger boat with fewer people aboard, so there was plenty of room and unhindered views. At times we were surrounded by whales, and several times a mother and baby swam past us. The naturalists on board

    A fantastic and responsible organization. Would only ever do a whale watch/tour in Maui with Pacific Whale Foundation.
    If you truly want to learn everything about whales, learn from the best. A reputable and responsible organization.
