What you'll do

We will depart from historic Lahaina Harbor and cruise along Maui's rugged west coast in search of magnificent Humpback Whales. Our quick and eco-efficient raft allows us to spend more admiring the whales and less time in transit. On this 2 hour trip we will get much closer to whales than the other larger and more crowded tour boats. Our knowledgeable captain and crew aboard the raft are happy to answer questions and share whale stories. Traveling aboard an ocean raft is action-packed and guaranteed to get you up-close with Maui's magical marine life. We can check out dolphins and turtles too! The Zodiac raft is a low-impact form of ocean transportation and an eco-friendly alternative to big boats. This whale watch is offered by Hawaii Ocean Rafting. We will return to the harbor for you to enjoy plenty of time shopping and eating on historic Front Street in Lahaina. Note: Check in time is 30 before the experience is scheduled to start. Free and paid parking options are available within walking distance.

Mark

I am the owner of Hawaii Ocean Rafting and have lived on Maui for over 43 years. I started this journey of the sea life on a Maui scuba boat where I eventually earned my Captain's license. I then gained experience working on sport fishing boats, Inter-Island sailboats, glass bottom boats, sea taxi's for the U.S NAVY, parasailing, and ocean rafting. I enjoy taking out new visitors to explore these beautiful oceans I get to call my workplace. I am proud to say Hawaii Ocean rafting offers an up close and personal experience with marine life unlike any other tour company out there!

Where you'll be

We leave the historic and tranquil Lahaina Harbor on the raft to cruise Maui's west coast. The calm west side oceans are prime whale watching territory because they are sheltered by two other islands (Lanai and Molokai)!
