The winter months are prime whale watching season and your absolute best viewing opportunity is in Maalaea, Maui. You will also find exciting tours available on the south and west sides of the island. At least 12,000 humpback whales migrate to Maui every year, and the number is increasing, making your chance of spotting these 60,000 lb creatures excellent. Whales breach when they are far away from each other as a form of long range communication.
Grab your sunscreen and camera and see the kohola in action!
