Top spot for whale watching in Maui, Hawaii

Plan your family vacation during whale season with the “Whale of a Deal” room package at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa

I recently vacationed in Maui, Hawaii with my family.  We stayed at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa for 10 days. I could have stayed another 10 days.

If you’re considering a family trip to Hawaii in the near future, I’d recommend going to Maui during whale season.  You’re able to experience the wonders of watching humpback whales directly from the beach, quite a sight.

According to Frommer’s, about 1,500 to 3,000 humpback whales appear in Hawaii waters each year. The whale season usually starts in December and runs through April.  If your children are interested in wildlife, traveling during whale season to Maui is a definite perk to your Hawaiian vacation.

View from my room at the Sheraton Maui Resort & SpaThe Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa is offering a “Whale of a Deal room package.”

“Whale season is one of the most exciting times of year here on Maui and Kaanapali Beach, the unique location of the Sheraton Maui’s Moana building, situated on top of the Black Rock, provides an unrivaled view of the Humpback Whales across the Maui Nui Basin where their population is amongst the highest,” explains the resort’s general manager, Tetsuji Yamazaki.

The Whale of a Deal room package includes:

  • two drinks delivered daily by in-room dining
  • two souvenir refillable mason jars , binoculars, stuffed whale
  • a personal Whale Concierge to assist with booking the top things to do in Hawaii including whale-related activities

With over 83 percent of the resort’s 508 rooms facing the water, the resort provides an ideal setting to watch nature’s majestic giants. As I woke up every morning to the most beautiful view of Molokai, I couldn’t help but picture the channel filled with whales breaching. I can’t wait to go take my son during whale season.

For reservations, you call (866) 716-8140 and mention rate plan WHALEPKG or visit http://www.Sheraton-Maui.com.

In addition, when visiting Hawaii a great place to stay is in one of the many Hawaiian Beach Rentals for a more unique experience.  Hawaiian Beach Rentals lets you find the ideal option for your family including location on the island, a kitchen, and multiple bedrooms.

Wow, the Sheraton looks beautiful. I had no idea about the whale watching from the hotel there. This is great info. I know my family would absolutely love this. Can't wait to try it out there one day.

I stayed with my grandson at the Sheraton and enjoyed every minute
The pool was gorgeous like a lazy river flowing in a tropical sunshine amidst plants, birds flowers
We were smiling and laughing every morning going to brunch.
Counting the days until we return to heaven. Eileen
