For many, a trip to Maui from December 15 through April 15 is not complete with out a Maui whale watching experience. Trilogy's wide, comfortable, catamarans offer a stable viewing platform that makes this ocean experience safe for the whole family. Trilogy's on-board Naturalists also make this trip educational and entertaining. And, unlike many of the large whale watching boats that take up to 149 passengers, Trilogy limits the number of guests to 35-40 so everyone has a front row seat. And with convenient boarding from Ma‘alaea Harbor, this trip offers you the most direct route to some of the best whale watching in the world!
