Whale of a Tale: Whale Watching on Maui

Posted on: October 29, 2021

Like many things that nature offers, kohola, or whales, have a special place in the hearts of the Hawaiian people. In fact, one of their stories about creation is centered around these majestic underwater creatures. Passed down from generation to generation, these oral traditions trace back to the beginnings of Hawaiian culture and influence the way people live to this day.

If you’re ready to stand in awe of the largest creatures on earth, a visit to Maui is just what you need. For thousands of years, whales have migrated to the coast of Maui to soak in the warm sun rays and feast in the plentiful oceans.
