What is the best time of year to see the Dolphins on Maui?

Dec 7, 2018 | General Information

Unlike the leaping Humpback whales that visit Maui each winter, dolphins are full time Maui residents that can be spotted at any time of year. The most common dolphin encounters on Maui occur when out on a boat, particularly those between Lahaina and Lanai where there’s a large population of spinners. There’s also a group of spinner dolphins that patrols the West Maui coastline and is sometimes found off Ka‘anapali Beach or up near Honolua Bay. The third distinct group of dolphins on Maui is found near La Perouse Bay, which is located at the end of the road in South Maui but best accessed by boat.
