Tour Overview

Ocean Spirit is a state-of-the-art sailing catamaran offering luxury, space and comfort for a maximum capacity of 55 passengers. Whalewatch Sail is led by Certified Marine Naturalists for fun and informative interpretation of humpback whale behaviors and characteristics.

We sail when possible depending on weather conditions or whale activity and may need to use our engines for the safety of the animals, in accordance with our “Be Whale Aware” policies for safe and sustainable humpback whale viewing.

Multiple departures daily from Ma’alaea Harbor.

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.
