Boating on Maui

Charter a boat, take a sunset cruise or go on a whale watching tour off the western coast of Maui. Sail the calm, clear waters of the Auau Channel between Maui, Lanai, and Molokai, an area famous for spotting whales. Most cruises and whale watching excursions depart from historic Lahaina Harbor or beautiful Maalaea Bay just north of Kihei. Most whale watching boat tours operate from December to May and last 2-4 hours.
