What you'll do

The sunset whale watch is designed to give you plenty of time to watch whales while the sun is still up. Humpbacks return to Maui to give birth which means we often see newborn whales rolling around with their mamas, nursing or learning to breach. We may also see escort whales trying to be the next baby daddy and spy hopping to keep the mom and baby protected. Dolphins often frolic with the whales and are known to love bow riding in Maui. Shortly after sunset we head back to the harbor in time for dinner. On every charter we drop a hydrophone into the water so you can hear the whales sing. This is our favorite way to watch the sun go down! This experience is ideally suited for shutterbugs as there is plenty of room on our brand new boat and a variety of vantage points to shoot from. We will also frequently have a professional photographer on board, available to offer tips on how to get the best whale shots with your camera. Note: Because whale watching happens during Maui's winter, it can get chilly on the water so bring jackets and wear clothing that can get wet. This experience is not recommended for people who get sea sick. Weather: Your safety is our priority. In the event of unsafe weather conditions, we may cancel the trip. You will be offered another date or a full refund in the event of cancellation.

Don

I am the owner of Maui Diamond Sea Sports and have lived on Maui for over 25 years. My wife is owner of Maui Dreams Dive Co. Together, we love to show people the beauty of Maui's underwater world and teach them about what they're seeing. I have been a USCG Licensed Captain for 15 years. In 2019, we upgraded to a brand new boat, a Newton 46 Dive Special, which means lots of room and great vantage points for whale watching. Thanks to several years experience spotting and observing humpback whales we can often predict breaches and other behaviors to help you capture the perfect pictures. Conservation and education are at the heart of what we do so we'll make sure you learn something new when you join us for a tour.
