13th annual whale tales: february 15-18 at the ritz-carlton, kapalua

Each year since 2006 world-renowned presenters have come together on Maui to collaborate and share at Whale Tales, an annual four-day event hosted by Whale Trust. Often described as West Maui’s premier whale event, Whale Tales attracts ocean enthusiasts of all ages.

Whale Tales is a unique opportunity for Maui residents and visitors to hear first-hand what marine scientists are studying and discovering about the ocean and its inhabitants. “This event really brings together a unique community that advocates for stewardship and protection of our local whale population,” shares one attendee. “The more we learn about whales, the more we want to learn.”

The 13th Annual Whale Tales will be held February 15-18 at The Ritz Carlton, Kapalua. Attendees will have opportunities to learn the latest in marine research from marine biologists and conservationists and experience stunning visuals from world-renowned photographers and videographers. In addition to expert presentations, an Education and Art Expo runs throughout the weekend, featuring hands-on learning opportunities with local nonprofit organizations, showcasing marine photography and art displays, and promoting innovative and sustainability-focused local businesses. Presentations and the expo are free and open to the public ($20 suggested donation per day encouraged).

Benefit whale watches featuring the expert presenters are hosted daily throughout the weekend. For a detailed schedule of events, presentations, registration, and tickets, visit whaletales.org or call 808-572-5700.
