We love winter on Maui, with the return of the Humpbacks we get just as excited as you to have those close encounters. That's what makes our private tours so special, is the connection to the whales. Chris your private guide who has spent years on the water with the humpbacks examines their behavior a puts you in the best location for that once in a lifetime encounter as if he understands them. So if you are serious about whale watching while here on Maui this is the tour for YOU!

I am so happy we chose Tropical Guides as our outfitter! Our guide Erica was personable, enthusiastic, and took great care of us. Seeing humpbacks via kayak is unreal. This adventure was the highlight of my dad and I’s vacation and it being a private tour made it very special. I highly recommend this outfitter. They were safe, great communicators, provided excellent customer service, and we lucked out on hot showers that day ;)

This was probably the highlight of our trip to Maui. We met our guide, Erica, a super experienced nature lover. She got us ready on our Kayaks. We are pretty familiar with Kayaking and snorkeling so we hit the groud(water) running and got right out with our kayaks. We got out onto the water and there were no motor boats out. The whales were really active. We saw a mom, and new born. Then the males started to really do lots of tricks out in the open water. Erica actually helped guide us to nice locations to get away from big groups of Kayakers and to places where we really got to experience the Whales. We could even hear the whales singing under us. After an extended time out in the water, we got into our snorkel gear and explored the reef a bit. Erica took some awesome phots. We really enjoyed our time with Tropical Guides & Outfitters and Erica and would highly recommend this tour.

“Lowe” greeted us at the parking spot and suggested we park a little closer there in the hard dirt (when we came back a Camero was stuck & was digging out by hand). They took care of us from beginning to end. Sized us up and outfitted us with Kayak, vests, instruction and a background of what we might see. We were lucky, paddled out easily and saw at least 7 whales 🐋 jumping, slapping their tails and just doing whale stuff at a very safe distance. Then we went to snorkeling 🤿, could have done that all day. Not crowded and felt like a VIP tour. Afterwards we had a heated fresh water rinse off waiting for us. Can’t say what a fabulous time we had, Mahalo Lowe and fam!

About This Deal


Winter on Maui is a truly magical time. We get to welcome back our part time residents, the Humpback Whales! Being able to see these gentle giants in their natural habitat is an experience you will never forget. Our Kayak & Whale Watching Tours are hands down the best way to encounter these majestic creatures. The kayaks put us on the whales level, which allows us to hear the whales breathe and even sing. Baby humpbacks or calfs are extremely curious and have been know to come right up to the kayaks, as long as mama isn't to strict. Watching the Humpbacks on Maui is a once in a lifetime experience for a lot of people, so why not make sure you get those intimate encounters with the Humpbacks that YOU are looking for!
