maui | whale watching and ocean tours

Throughout the winter months, the waters around Maui are home to the majestic humpback whale. Our journey takes us right through the waters of the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, which was designated because this area is an important mating and calving ground for the endangered humpbacks.

Trilogy Excursions - Now I realize that being the oldest sailing company on Maui (since 1973) doesn't automatically make us the best. Or the fact that Trilogy was the first activity company in Hawaii to receive the coveted Pookela Award for customer service (1999). And, even though an independent survey of over 11,000 Maui visitors (Maui's Top 10) chose Trilogy the #1 sailing company and the #1 Activity on Maui, we still feel it is important to earn our reputation the old fashion way - one guest at a time! Our goal is to make you feel like family. Perhaps that's why so many of our guests return year after year. I guess you could say that sailing with us is like coming home!

Teralani Sailing Adventure - Each winter, the Pacific Humpback Whale migrates from Alaska to the waters off the coast of Maui. These "Gentle Giants" are one of Maui's most prized visitors with their spectacular "breaching" and "tail slapping." Observing these amazing whales in their natural habitat is an opportunity not to be missed.
