Dolphin & Whale Watching, Kihei

4.7
#2 of 87 in Things to do in Kihei
Cruise the warm waters off Maui's south coast and meet some of the ocean's most impressive residents on a dolphin- and whale-watching tour from Kihei. Your onboard naturalist guide will keep this exciting journey educational, while you observe gigantic humpbacks spraying water through their blowhole as they surface for air. A kayaking tour allows you to come as close as possible to the gentle giants, without crowds or engine noise to spoil the magic. Unless you combine this activity with another water sport--like snorkeling--you can expect the trip to take anywhere between 2 and 3 hours.

Where to stay in Kihei

Kihei may be a small town, but its lodging options rival those of much bigger tourist destinations in Hawaii. Most visitors choose to stay in rental apartments, which provide plenty of privacy and enough room to satisfy families with kids of all ages. Most apartment complexes maintain a front desk staffed by locals who can provide tips for what to see and where to go in the area. If you choose to check into a hotel on the oceanfront South Kihei Road, which can be noisy and congested throughout the day, ask for a room facing away from the street.
