Corporate retreats and conferences bring more and more visitors to Maui each year. After all, who wouldn't want to get together for fun, relaxation, and mental stimulation on a tropical island? Best of all, you get to enjoy an "exotic" location while remaining in the U.S., which makes it a real treat for all participants, assuming the organizers know how best to spend the down time.
There are plenty of great things to do on Maui with a corporate group. The most appropriate activities include beach days, spa visits, sightseeing tours, live performances at Maui Theater or the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, and restaurant crawls in West Maui and South Maui. As for the ultimate highlight of any trip this time of year, business-related or otherwise, the Maui whale watch tours are widely considered the most memorable, by far. Not only are you surrounded by stunning ocean scenery, but humpback numbers are robust in March, and seeing a 45-foot whale in person may give you a new perspective on the natural world!
You may be wondering what makes our whale watch tour ideal for a corporate outing. Well, our Maui fleet includes the largest and most stable yachts on the island, specially designed for the smoothest possible ride. Conveniently, the waters off West Maui tend to be very calm anyway, when the prevailing trade winds are blowing, because they come from the opposite side of the West Maui Mountains.
Our largest luxury craft, the Maui Princess, is 120 feet in length, and is certified to safely accommodate up to 149 passengers. Her main cabin is enclosed and air-conditioned, for those in the group who enjoy a sheltered vantage point. For the more adventurous passengers, her spacious open-air observation deck provides unobstructed views of the surrounding ocean and the beautiful collection of islands that helped form these sheltered waters that the humpback whales favor. The Maui Princess also features a cocktail lounge and a snack bar, if you're looking for a splash of elegance to add to the experience.
Whether you're traveling with colleagues, employees, or business associates, you can always strengthen your relationship by lavishing them with the best possible experience. Our current whale watch tour prices are just $38.53 per adult, as of March, 2017. In the future, you'll want to check prices, as they may change over time. On our whale watch tour, we may use any one of our four large vessels. If you're interested in a private charter, or you'd like information on which boat will be used on a given day, you can find our contact information at the top of the page. We would be happy to answer any questions you might have. Just keep in mind that booking online will currently save you 10% on your total price. We look forward to seeing you and your group onboard with us soon! Mahalo!
