MAKENA WHALE WATCH
During whale season, our Turtle Reef Discovery activity is also our Whale Watch tour! A really inspiring trip; there is nothing like viewing a Humpback Whale from ocean level. Guests have the opportunity to sit eye level with these gentle giants. Of course, we don’t approach them, they approach us!! Viewing whales from a kayak is a breathtaking experience. The ocean, the kayaks, the paddlers, the whale! We will also sneak in some snorkeling with the sea turtles.
Makena Bay is our destination and this area is famous for the Green Sea Turtle population, exceptional paddling conditions and just an overall great area to visit. Home to “Turtle Town”, Makena is consistently the most reliable spot for sunshine, calm waters, exceptional snorkeling with a large turtle population and during whale season, sightings and encounters extraordinaire.

Makena Landing is one of Maui’s best snorkeling spots with its gentle ocean conditions, gorgeous coastline and underwater reefs and excellent variety of unique sea life. While close to Wailea and Kihei, visitors drive all the way from Lahaina and Ka`anapali as it is known for being one of Maui’s best spots for snorkeling. Home to a high concentration of Hawaiian Green Sea turtles (honu), the area not far from Makena Landing is called “Turtle Town”, where rays, Dolphins and the Hawaiian monk seal are commonly spotted as well. During whale season (October thru April) you will have the opportunity to see Humpback whales during their annual migration to the Islands to mate and give birth.
