Whale Watching in Maui
The humpback whale season is a sight to behold, and it’s just getting started. In fact, the first whale was just spotted offshore on October 9th, signaling the beginning of an awe-inspiring migration that will last through May when the massive mammals return to the colder waters of Alaska. If you’re vacationing in Maui this fall, booking a whale-watching tour is a must.

Giving Back on Your Maui Vacation
Maui’s natural resources and brilliant landscapes have made it a dream destination for travelers for years. And, while tourism makes up the bulk of its economy, visitors looking to give back to the destination that gives so much can make a huge impact in the aftermath of the fires by volunteering with local organizations while on vacation.
