Now that our whales are officially home for the winter, we thought we’d share our favorite whale watch from last season. Here we are off the coast of Maalaea with a group of humpback whales that mugged our boat for over 30 minutes. We saw over a dozen breaches, and this playful pod observed us with incredible proximity.
This is one of the live videos we shot from the boat. It starts getting really fun around 60 seconds into the video:
Photographer Natalie Brown was onboard and shot these amazing shots below.
They swam below the boat over 10 times! It was as exciting as it gets.

This is going to be another amazing season with record number of returning humpback whales, we can just feel it! Having been on a sunset cruise last week and seeing 3 breaches and plenty of whales so early, we’re confident it’ll be a season to remember.
