Ultimate Rafting – Maui Whale Watch
$54.00 BOOK NOW
Ultimate Whale Watch on Maui are true to their name. Ultimate Whale Watch uses a zodiac raft for their Whale Watching tours, providing an eye level whale watching experience. They get up close to the whales ensuring your whale watching tour is personal and fun. With several times throughout the day available to go whale watching in Maui, Ultimate Rafting has you covered. The whale watching season on Maui is from December 15th through April 15th. There are no whale watching tours during the summer. Imagine, being so close to a pod of whales, when one breaches, the entire raft is splashed and everyone is thoroughly soaked. Like a cannonball, the water soaks everything within its radius.
These types of whale watches, along with the educational background provided by the marine naturalist aboard, will inspire you to help save our planet with an understanding of how important the whales are to a healthy marine environment. Just like all other species in the sea, they are just one component that makes everything work.
Ultimate Whale Watch allows only small groups of 16 guests. This is what separates them from other rafting whale watching companies as most carry 20 or more trying to fill every inch of space. You can count on Ultimate Whale Watch taking your comfort to heart by limiting the number of guests for each whale watch to 16 passengers.
Family owned and operated the captain has over 20 years of experience in providing guests with a unique Maui whale watch. Ultimate Whale Watch has been whale watching Maui longer than any other raft in Lahaina. They are the Ultimate Whale Watching experience. So join us today, for an adventure of a lifetime, whale watching in Maui.
Ultimate Whale Watching first began by providing whale watching tours on Maui. Since then they have expanded their Maui activities to include rafting snorkel trip to Lanai. You can find out more about snorkeling Lanai with Ultimate Rafting Adventures on our Lanai snorkel page in this web site.

My wife & I had an excellent trip with Ultimate Whale Watch & Maui Snorkeling. Peter & Vinnie area great crew and very informative about the Hawaiian Islands, the reefs we visited and also local marine life. We spent over an hour at the coral beds to the east of Lanai and this was one of the best snorkeling experiences my wife & I ever had. On the return trip we took a 'blue water' swim in the channel and also saw two separate pods of dolphins, one pod of spotted dolphins and a much larger pod of spinner dolphins. An awesome way to spend a morning, we thoroughly enjoyed our time and can't recommend Ultimate Whale Watch & Maui Snorkeling highly enough. We'll be back next March for whale watching season. Can't wait.
1000% recommend this awesome family owned business!! Highlight of our Maui vacation! Brittany was our captain and was super funny and cool. Vini was also an awesome guy who was super helpful. They honestly made the experience more fun!
We got to snorkel twice! Saw the most beautiful reefs, tons of beautiful fish, and saw 4-5 sea turtles!! I even got to pet one!
Then on the dolphin tour of it we saw probably 100 dolphins!!! They were super active, jumping all around! It couldn’t of been better! They also provided good snacks and drinks! If you’re wanting to snorkel and see dolphins don’t go anywhere else but here!!
Had a great day on the water snorkeling the reefs around Lana'i. You could tell Brittany and Hanna loved getting to share their passion for the environment and marine animals. They never hesitated to get in the water with us or point out something we may have missed. We were a little late getting back to the dock because they took the time to slow down and let us enjoy a pod of over 100 spinner dolphins we came across on the way back in. Overall one of the best parts of our vacation to Maui.
Worth every penny. We had a group of 16 attend. Amy and Brittany were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They answered our questions and promptly distributed clean snorkel gear. They knew every fish we came across and gave us fun facts along the way. The coral was alive and well, as were the plentiful fish and dolphins that we saw. They handled the boat skillfully and monitored us for safety while we snorkeled. Safety is certainly a priority! That was much appreciated. Also, the snacks were delicious! Water, soda, cookies, fresh local fruit, potato chips. Very hospitable. Overall, what a wonderful experience! I encourage anyone to come!
This was the best snorkel tour I ever had. Brittney and hannah were awesome they made the trip so enjoyable and fun and they really had a lot experience. You don't go to the typical tourist places you drive to exclusive beautiful places with so many turtles and fishes. I couldn't count how many dolphins we have seen! It's a small boot so every seat has perfect views and the crew is just awesome. The food was also great! Everything was perfect and the most exciting experience you can have!
