Step aboard the Pacific Whale Foundation’s “Ocean Odyssey” to join us along with a professional crew of Certified Marine Naturalists who will take us out to meet and learn about our winter visitors, the Humpback Whales. This will be a two-hour tour where we’ll not only see some of these spectacular mammals and learn a lot about them, but we’ll also get to listen to their communication and song through an underwater microphone.

Get in the left turn lane to follow the signs pointing to Lahaina. At the next T intersection turn left on Hwy 30/Honoapi’ilani Hwy. In a couple of miles you will see the main intersection for the Maui Ocean Center on your left. Turn left at the lights and drive into the harbor.
Take Hwy 30/Honoapi’ilani Hwy toward Lahaina until you reach the main intersection for the Maui Ocean Center. Turn left at the lights and drive into the harbor.
Drive Southbound on Hwy 30/Honoapi’ilani Hwy. After the tunnel and past the scenic viewing area watch for the sign for Maalaea Harbor and then turn right into the harbor.
Once you are at the harbor area the easiest place to park is in the main lot in front of the Maui Ocean Center. From there walk through the area of shops and down to the water. Our boat, the Ocean Odyssey, and the check in area will be toward the left as you approach the water.
