Maui Whale Festival

Today’s weather has me thinking about the islands of Aloha. The warm "winter" weather of Hawaii not only attracts human visitors, but also endangered humpback whales. While whale catching can be enjoyed from most Hawaiian islands on your own, through chartered boats, nature tours, etc., Maui continues to be the center of whale watching activity and the annual month-long Maui Whale Festival honors and celebrates these beautiful mammals.

This upcoming 2010’s Festival will be held from February 1 through the 28 and events include the Run for the Whales, Maui’s Parade of Whales, Maui’s Whale Day Celebration and the Great Maui Whale Count.

Happy travels!
