For $74, today's side deal gets you admission to a two-hour whale-watching tour on the Aikane X5 (a $149 value), docked on Kaanapali Beach.
A former winner of the TransPacific Yacht Race, the Aikane X5 is a 62 foot-long racing catamaran that was redesigned into a yacht for steady, luxurious excursions. During the X5's whale-watching tour, your Coast Guard–licensed captain will explore the warm waters of Maui, where whales can be spotted socializing, spraying water out of their blowholes, and majestically breaching the water. Some whales may even get close enough to the boat for sightseers to reach out and pet the friendly creatures. Though the X5 is certified to carry 49 passengers, tours are limited to 12 people to increase elbow space and maintain the intimacy of the two-hour expedition. Complimentary drinks and pupus will be served while marine-mammal spies spot the wide array of wildlife within the vibrant blue seas.
