5. GET EXCITED FOR WHALE WATCHING SEASON
From the late winter months through mid-May, those visiting Maui are in for a special treat:
WHALE WATCHING season. There are many ways to see these magnificent ocean creatures during this time.
Some popular choices include a submarine tour, a boating excursion, kayak rentals or even snorkeling (if you're feeling adventurous). During the winter humpback season, it's quite common for guests to see 40-TON
WHALES with 15-foot pectoral fins making their annual migration to the Hawaiian Islands.
If you're lucky, you may even hear the humpback whales' incredible songs underwater. A typical song lasts 10-20 minutes and can be repeated for hours at a time.
For the safety of the whales and visitors, jet ski and parasailing activates are suspended on Maui during whale watching season. Check with your hotel concierge or activity center to see if your water activity is operating during your stay.
