Calypso Maui – Whale Watch Cruise

Experience the best of Hawaii’s whale-watching season!

Join this safe, family-friendly cruise departing from Ma’alaea Harbor, which is conveniently close to Kihei, Wailea, Wailuku, and Kahului.

Embark on the Calypso, the only catamaran on Maui with three expansive decks, for an unforgettable tropical adventure in the heart of the Pacific Ocean. Our vessel offers a 360-degree view of the sea and is highly recommended for whale-watching enthusiasts.

As you leave Ma’alaea Harbor, be on the lookout for the most breathtaking moments at sea, where humpback whales blow misty sprays into the air. The Calypso’s expert naturalists provide real-time commentary on the whales’ underwater movements, including tail slaps, pec slaps, peduncle throws, spy hops, breaching, and more.

For a truly unique experience, head to the underwater viewing room, where you can observe humpback whales swimming beneath the vessel through glass panels in the ship’s hull. This rare and exceptional feature enhances your connection with the sea and these amazing marine mammals.

The best time to witness humpback whales in Hawaii is between December and April. Calypso’s three decks allow you to get closer to the action, and you won’t find a safer or more comfortable vessel for this incredible experience. The first and second decks have spacious cabins with tinted windows, providing excellent views of the sea. Even when you take a break from the sun, you won’t miss any of the action.

Don’t miss the opportunity to experience the best that Hawaii’s whale-watching season has to offer. Witness these magnificent creatures up close and personal as they blow misty sprays and engage in their mesmerizing aquatic ballet. Our Calypso naturalists, captain, and crew are as excited as you are to share this amazing adventure.

So, come aboard and immerse yourself in the best, safest, and most beautiful whale-watching experience in Hawaii. The sea, the whales, and the Calypso are all here to ensure you have an unforgettable tropical adventure.
