It is nearing November and the Humpback Whales are on their way to Maui. Normally we can start to see the first sightings in October. We will be keeping our eyes open for them and postings will be added as we find out more.
Update: February 3rd 2014
Just about any beach you go to, you will be seeing the Humpback Whales of Maui playing, spouting, breaching. They put on a great display and usully are close enough for easing viewing. Yesterday driving from Lahaina to Wailea I must have seen 7 groups of Whales along my drive.
Update: January 17th 2014
Whale sightings are now a constant. The Whale watching boats are busy gathering in groups off the shore of Maui to view the Whales. We hear the Whales very loud now on every scuba dive and when snorkeling now. This will last through May when they leave for Alaska.
Update: December 15 2013
We are hearing the Whales now on just about every dive. I have seen a total of 3 breaching out of the water this last week. I was in South Maui on all three occasions
Update: December 2nd 2013
Monday the 25th of November I heard the first Whales of the year for us underwater. Yesterday I heard the second sounds of the Humpback om our dive down south in Makena.
Update: May 2nd 2014
It is that time of year again, and we have to say goodbye to the Humpback Whales, as they are leaving Maui. We have had the yearly pleasure once again, scuba diving with the sounds of the Humpbacks complimenting or dives. But they have been getting fewer and farther between. I did not hear anything on our last dive yesterday
I will be giving more updates when the Whales are returning to Maui later in the year
