Attraction details
Owner description: Located in Kihei on the south shore of Maui, the visitor center is an ideal spot to learn about the marine environment and even see humpback whales breaching. This scenic beachfront location at the foot of Haleakala has views of Kaho'olawe, Lana'i and West Maui looking across the waters of the sanctuary. Visitors to the new center inKihei will be able to learn about the efforts by NOAA, the State of Hawaii, and others to protect humpback whales, monk seals, sea turtles, and coral reefs.

We used the Whale Watch center to take our whale watching trip and to visit their educational services. There are many options and I cannot say they are bad just that htis one is very good.

Very educational and fun boat ride to visit the whales who were just a few miles from shore. They put a microphone into the sea and we could listen to the whales singing!!!

All the people who volunteer and work there are well versed on whales and any other marine issues you can ask about.

It is one room where they show you how they try to held see animals, specially whales, and through the season you can watch whales from the porch outside.
