Pacific Whale Foundation Goes Sailing

Pacific Whale Foundation Ocean Spirit is widely regarded as the best sunset sail departing from Lahaina Harbor. Departing from Lahaina Harbor means you don’t have to wade through the water to board. The service of the crew is the best you’ll find and the food is more diverse than other sunset sailing charters. Simply put, Pacific Whale Foundation does it right. It’s a sailing experience the whole family can enjoy, learn something about our environment and relax to the sound of the wind catching the sails. Join us while you’re visiting Maui and you will understand what perfection is all about.

Save our Oceans

Pacific Whale Foundation is more known for their research in the ocean environment. Their work in bringing awareness to the public about the condition of the reefs around Maui and the Humpback Whale populations have given them the distinction of being the environmental leaders in the State of Hawaii. Their work has extended beyond the shores of Maui regarding global warming. As a non-profit organization, Pacific Whale Foundation sponsors several events in Maui each year from ocean clean up to counting the Humpback Whales during the height of the whale watching season. Their thinking is that hopefully you will be inspired to take action to help bring awareness to your community about the effects on the oceans that man has caused and help to reduce it.


During the whale watching season that runs from December 15th through April 15th, Pacific Whale Foundation will include a Maui whale watching tour that will enhance your experience like no other. It’s a special time of year for Pacific Whale Foundation as they have a certified marine naturalist aboard to share their mission of saving the planet and all the creatures who call the oceans home. They also provide a free Robert Lynn Nelson marine poster to each guest for free.

Did a 3 hour whale watching tour on the catamaran. Was incredible experience, saw a ton of whales, one even came right up to the boat to investigate. Also heard whale songs below the boat with my bare ear. 10 out of 10 would recommend.

Went on the 9am whale watch. Saw our first whale at 0908 AM. Awesome mix of both sides of the boat so everyone could see. Had several breaches. Super informative and supporting a non profit. Had a couple sea sensitive people in our group that were fine with a ginger pill. Highly recommend! Awesome experience!!!

Had an amazing time and saw plenty whales. We did the early morning whale watching sail tour. Captain Anna, Jack, and Desmond did a great job and were very informative. We also did the Captain's sunset dinner tour and Heddie was really friendly and informative as well. We couldn't have asked for better service!

Whale watch with an experienced team who are also researchers. I experienced whale watching while learning about their behaviours, history and conservation efforts. If you’re looking for a tour where you can also feel good supporting and protecting wildlife then this tour is for you. The whales came so close to us we had to cut the engines as they were inside the 100yard range and the whales came closer to check us out. We had a mother calf on both sides and it was incredible and quiet too. There was a distinct reverence for what we were witnessing. As soon as the whales moved away a safe distance we started up and moved away to give them a break from us tourist. We went off in search of new ones. We also saw dolphins and you know it’s good when the people who do this day in and day our are beyond excited. What an amazing trip!!

We did a 7am snorkeling tour with Pacific Whale Foundation and it was worth every penny. Both the locations were great and we had fun snorkeling. Being our first time snorkeling, the crew made sure we were comfortable in the water and helped us in every way possible. We also saw lot of whales throughout the tour. The crew was friendly and took great care with food and drinks. I would highly recommend this snorkeling tour.

What a great experience. First at their store Andrea was awesome, she helped book our dinner cruise and was extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable! My parents were visiting so I wanted to take them on something special. John was the captain and Dylan our server and it was fantastic. Whales everywhere, breaching and with calves. The sunset was breathtaking and the food was excellent. The entire crew was awesome. We loved it. We stopped by store after cruise to thank Andrea. Highly recommend!

Exceeded every expectation. This was absolutely wonderful. Captain Paul was fantastic (extra points for saying how awesome my shirt was) and the crew were very knowledgeable and friendly. The snorkeling was amazing: beautiful location, plenty of time, and TONS of fish. We got to swim with a sea turtle, so... It was great!

Great attention to detail and a wonderful sunset dinner cruise. Friendly staff and great crew. Feels a little rushed but they were missing one of the waiters. I don't know if it would have changed anything but would I would go again.
