About our Premier Whale Watch

Ride our brand new boat

Paikea is a 38ft, custom built RHIB.

With a private charter, the whole boat is yours!

Stretch out with a maximum of six passengers.

Experience a connection with Maui's ocean wildlife that will stay with you your entire life.

When you charter a boat for your friends and family, you make memories together. Your photos are of each other and the whales, not the back of other people’s heads.   And you’re so close to the water, you might even find yourself eye to eye with a whale! 

Join Captain Mikal aboard Paikea. He will share his experience and knowledge from over a decade captaining in Maui’s waters. With a maximum capacity of 6 people, you will have this 38ft boat all to yourself,  Spread out, enjoy views in every direction, and experience Maui’s humpback whales.
