For many, a trip to Maui from December 15th - April 15th is not complete
without a Maui whale watching experience. Trilogy's wide, comfortable,
catamarans offer a stable viewing platform that makes this ocean
experience safe for the whole family. On this two-hour whale watch, Trilogy
is dedicated to sharing accurate information about the Humpback Whale
and its habitat with our guests through our onboard naturalists. Our goal is
to give the guest a meaningful encounter with these magnificent creatures
without disturbing their behavior and following the Sanctuary Whale
Watching Guidelines (recognizing the approach limits of 100 Yards).

For three generations they have been meeting or exceeding visitor's
expectations. Guests come from all over the world and from all walks of
life. But they all have one thing in common...they all deserve the very
best. Trilogy invites you to join them soon for the best day of your

Each winter there's an increase in visitors to the islands, Humpback whales, the State of Hawaii's official marine
mammal. From as early as September until as late as May, humpback whales can be seen in the near-shore
waters surrounding the Hawaiian Islands and West Maui is one the best viewing areas in all of Hawaii.

Scientists estimate that approximately 4,000 to 5,000 humpback whales, two-thirds of the North Pacific stock,
migrate to Hawaii each winter. From their feeding grounds in Alaska, they cross 3,000 miles of ocean to reach
their winter destination, which offers the promise of relaxation, adventure and "romance." The primary
activities that humpback whales engage in during their stay in Hawaii include mating, birthing and nursing.
Male humpbacks also spend their time competing with others for female attention and perfecting their singing

A whale watching cruise can be an awe-inspiring experience from the water. Mothers can be seen teaching their
calves to breach, and males can be seen competing with one another in fierce head-to-head battles. The
underwater vocal stylings of male humpback whales can even be heard by divers, snorkelers and boaters. The
thrill of such encounters has fostered a strong love of humpbacks in the islands.

Whale watching on the Calypso could be the coolest two hours you spend on
Maui in the wintertime. This fabulous catamaran is really decked out (there
are three levels, plus a great captain and crew), which ensures a great view
of the water's surface.

Your marine naturalist will keep you entertained with explanations of all the
humpback happenings like mamas teaching babies how to breach, a
competition pod of males running through the area, or a whale couple
engaging in synchronized swimming.  With snacks, drinks, and whales on the
smooth-riding Calypso, we can't think of anything else you'd need.

Whale, what are you waiting for?  Book your seats on Calypso now!
