Catch the Tail of Whale Watching Season at Outrigger Condominiums on Maui



MAUI, HAWAII – Outrigger Hotel and Resorts is making a splash at its Maui condominiums during whale season. Guests are invited to take a front-row seat and welcome the humpback whales as they complete their migration to the Valley Isle. Starting at just $195 per night for an ocean-view room at Outrigger Royal Kahana andOutrigger Napili Shores, guests can enjoy a view of these aquatic acrobats, while conveniently staying just steps away from the ocean.


Each year between November and May, as many as 10,000 humpback whales make their annual 3,000-mile-long journey from the North Pacific to Maui to mate and give birth to their calves. While visiting the islands, these fascinating creatures -- which can weigh up to 45 tons -- are often seen just off the Maui coastline. Many Outrigger Hotels and Resorts properties on Maui enjoy stunning vantage-points for whale watching, including beachfront Outrigger Royal Kahana Resort and Outrigger Napili Shores Resort. Outrigger Palms at Wailea and Outrigger Aina Nalu  offer a perfect homeport for a whale watching cruise.


“Outrigger Royal Kahana’s concierge offers assistance with booking whale-watching tours, but many guests also spot them while strolling down the beach or even from their own lanai,” said Jim Hill, general manager of Outrigger Royal Kahana. “Spotting a whale is a truly majestic experience and we’re pleased that our property offers a front-row seat for this show.”


“After a full day of whale watching and other outdoor activities, many of our guests admit that simply relaxing and spending quality time in the comfort of their condo is a favorite element of their vacation,” added Hill. “The spacious accommodations, full-size kitchens and ocean views found at our Maui condominium properties offer an idyllic home away from home.


Starting at just $195 a night at the Outrigger Royal Kahana and Outrigger Napili Shores properties, guests can choose from spacious studio, one- and two-bedroom options at with grand views of the ocean and from private lanais. Most condominiums are also equipped with full-size kitchens and laundry services, providing guests with options like making breakfast or lunch en-suite, or packing less because one can throw in a load of laundry.
