Pacific Whale Foundation was founded in 1980 by a small group of people who were determined to help save whales from extinction. Today, Pacific Whale Foundation has over 175 employees in Maui, Australia, Ecuador and the capability to tackle a wide range of issues, projects and programs in our ongoing efforts. We work tirelessly for our mission and share a common passion for protecting whales, dolphins, and the marine environment.

Over the past 32 years, Pacific Whale Foundation has taught nearly 4 million people about the marine conservation and has introduced educational whalewatching and ecotourism to Hawaii and Australia. We have become an international organization, with 32 years of ongoing research in Hawaii, Australia, Ecuador, Tonga, Japan, Chile, New Zealand (and other parts of the Pacific), and work with the international community to promote whale research and protection.

  • Fantastic experience supporting marine conservation and exploration. We look forward to going again next we are up that way.  more »
  • Fabulous few hours on the water, even though it rained etc. Great skipper and the 'mate' was a marine scientist so the info was very interesting and spot on!  more »

  • Cannot recommend enough! We got several magical encounters with the whales (Saw a mother and a calf nursing, several pods and 2 whales came play right next to the boat!). We chose this trip because profits go towards whale research and conservation, which is a beautiful thing. I wish every operator was as responsible as this one. Staff were amazing and knowledgeable, thank you Shelby for your commentary throughout the trip. You also get some cookies and soft drinks on board (plastic free) which was a nice surprise. I would never use any other company and will definitely be back again during whale season.
  • Fantastic whale watch company. Great wee boat..very comfy seats. Small numbers. Very informative commentary & helpful friendly crew. The whales didn't want to 'play' with us on the day we went but have experienced close encounters other times. We still saw whales though ☺ Great experience...great, great, great! (using the staff members adjectives! 😂)
