Maui Whale Watching Season Fast Approaching

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

Our Mana Kai condo is the perfect choice for visiting the island of Maui during the humpback whale watching season. The official season begins mid-December through about mid-April but we are expecting the first sighting any day now. Peak season is usually in February and March. These gentle giants migrate from the Gulf of Alaska to Hawaii each year at this time. Large populations of them are drawn to Hawaii because of the warm, protected water here.

Lahaina Harbor, not far from Mana Kai, offers some of the best whale watching excursions in the world. A wide range of whale watching tours lasting from 2-4 hours are offered. Being up close and witnessing a humpback whale rising from the water and splashing down is a breathtaking experience. It is very addicting. Once you have heard a whale song you will never forget it. A whale song is the most complex song there is. It is different in each part of the world and is constantly evolving. It can be heard underwater for up to 12 miles away. Who would not want to experience these beautiful sights and sounds?

You don’t have to make the trip to Lahaina Harbor to see the whales. You can often see the whales breach, blow, and show off their tails from the shoreline and from the lanai! As you drift off to sleep, you can hear the songs of the whales carried by the breeze. It can’t possibly get any better than this. Get away for winter to the tranquil beauty of our Mana Kai condominium. We still have plenty of dates available during prime humpback whale watching time. So act now to book your winter vacation to Hawaii!
