Recently spotted in Hawaii, thousands of humpback whales migrate from the chilly North Pacific every winter to mate, give birth, nurse their calves and breed before making the return trip home in the springtime.
In addition to the vessel’s Seakeeper technology providing boat stability and comfort for guests, Majestic offers two expansive air-conditioned decks lined with panoramic windows and high ceilings, as well as a huge open-air top deck for pristine whale watching outdoors.
Cost is $74.00 for adults and $37.00 for children (ages 3-12). Children age 2 and under are free. Kamaaina rates are also available for Hawaii residents with valid ID. The lunch cruise features a buffet including a selection of deli meats and cheeses, assorted breads, pasta salad, fresh seasonal fruits, desserts, and more. Juice, alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, coffee and tea are available for purchase.
Each whale watch cruise features an on-board naturalist providing guests with insightful educational information about the whales’ behavior and biology. If the naturalist does not see a whale during the cruise, guests are given a complimentary return whale-watching cruise.
