Whale Watching in Maui Starts Early in 2010

Today, Riley Coon reported on Trilogy ExcursionsFacebook page, “Saw my first Humpback whale of the season today right off the coast of Lanai”

Trilogy’s popular Maui whale watching tours begin in December and run through April.

It’s not a surprise to see Hawaiian Humpback whales so early in the year, not since they put an international ban on hunting the Humpback in the late ’70s.

“When we first started our business back in 1973 there were an estimated 600 Humpback Whales that migrated to Maui each winter,” explains Capt. Randy Coon. “Now, almost 35 years later, the population of migrating Humpback Whales is estimated to be between 12 & 15,000!”

If you’ve never seen a Humpback whale in the wild, it’s an amazing experience, and one this Hawaii Lifer highly recommends.
