When visiting Maui from January-March, it isn’t a question of if you’ll see whales, but rather which whales you should watch. From this lookout just north of Ma‘alaea, the splashes of humpbacks fill the ocean like shooting stars in a meteor shower: First you look this way, and then over there, and did you see that enormous breach? Mornings provide the best conditions before whitecaps confuse the view.
