Fond Farewell to Whale-Watching Season
If you’re planning on spring break in Maui, adding a whale-watching tour to your itinerary should be at the top of the list. Every year, the majestic humpback whales arrive in the warm waters of Maui by the tens of thousands. With the world’s densest humpback whale population, a tour is the perfect way to get up close and personal with these incredible giants. There are several companies in Maui that offer exceptional tours filled with educational tidbits, refreshments, and exciting chances to experience this life-changing wonder. When choosing your tour, it’s important to select a company that prioritizes the health and safety of the animals. One of the best on the island is Pac Whale Eco Tours. Their guides, all certified marine naturalists, provide Hawaii's most innovative and educational whale watch encounters, guaranteeing a fun-filled and eco-friendly experience.
Cultural Experiences for the Whole Family
Part of the excitement of a Hawaiian vacation is getting to immerse yourself in a new culture. Whether you’re traveling with kids and are looking to keep the learning going on spring break, or you just want to learn more about the wonderful people and history of the islands, there are loads of cultural activities to enjoy on your spring break in Maui.
Try Outrigger Canoeing – At the Hawaiian Outrigger Experience, you’ll dive into the rich cultural heritage and stunning natural beauty of Hawaii as you set sail from scenic Wailea Beach.

You’ll also get a glimpse into the lives of the Polynesian voyagers and their celestial navigation techniques. With a variety of tours and experiences, you can tailor your visit to meet your exact wants and needs.
Attend a Traditional Luau – a luau is a full sensory experience that lets you see, smell, taste, hear, and feel the very fibers of Hawaiian culture. From the traditional foods and music to the delicate leis and exciting fire dancing, they’re immersive and full of family-friendly fun. With several to choose from, you can pick a luau that best fits your family’s desires. Whether you want table service at a family-friendly venue or a luxurious setting in a specific part of Maui, you can find the ideal luau for your needs. No matter which one you attend, you'll be delighted by the flair and cultural celebration on display.
Learn Something New at Whalers Village – While located in Lahaina, several shops and restaurants have reopened at Whalers Village, and their weekly educational activities are a great way to learn something new while on your spring break in Maui.

Taking time to add enriching and educational activities to your Maui vacation will help you create a deeper connection to this island and give you memories you’ll cherish long after you return home.
