Guest Photographs From Our Maui Whale Watch Tours

This week, we want to highlight the incredible photographs shared with us by a guest of our Maui ocean tours. From March 3rd to the 22nd this year, Nigel joined us for what can only be described as a photographic marathon of our Maui Whale Watch Tours. When we say marathon, we're talking about multiple 7-trip passes that he purchased. This is also Nigel's fourth year of visiting Lahaina from England for whale photography. During that time, he has become a familiar, friendly face to our crew members.

Nigel is exactly the kind of guest that inspires us about the work that we do here in Lahaina. That's not just because of the extraordinary images he has captured with his photographic talents, but also because of his passion for these experiences and the bond that it has fostered with us over the years. We'd like to offer our sincere gratitude to Nigel for his loyal friendship, and for sharing these images with us so that we can share them with all of you.

If you haven't tried one of our Maui Whale Watch Tours yet, we hope that his images will give you a good sense of what to expect from these remarkable outings. Humpbacks are the most acrobatic of the baleen whales, as you may have noticed by now. Hawaii is also blessed with a rich population of dolphins, which are also known for their aerial prowess.

If you have a passion for marine mammals, you won't want to miss these tours, and the photo opportunities they provide. If you'd prefer to get in the water with us to explore the reefs, we have snorkeling tours that you're sure to enjoy as well. These adventures are ideal whether you're on a family vacation with your kids, a romantic getaway with your sweetheart, or a vacation with friends.  Our fleet includes some of the most stable boats that you can find here on Maui.

We hope to see you aboard one of our tours soon. In the meantime, enjoy these wonderful images, and if you need assistance with your booking or you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to us. You'll find our contact information at the bottom of the page. Mahalo!
