Whale watching season is at it's peak on the islands of Hawai'i right now. According to the Pacific Whale Foundation:
"Each year, humpback whales migrate from cool waters near Alaska to their warm-water breeding grounds in Hawaii. The first whale sightings of the year typically take place in late September or October. The whales don't arrive all at once. Their numbers gradually increase as winter approaches. From November 4 until May 15, we guarantee sightings..."
"The peak of whale watching season is typically in February and March. That's when we hold our Maui Whale Festival, including our Run and Walk for the Whales, our Parade of Whales, World Whale Day Celebration and Great Whale Count."
The Italian Restaurant overlooks Maalaea Harbor, where most of the whale watching cruises in Maui depart from. From their indoor and outdoor seating, you can enjoy ocean views and a Pau Hana cocktail or glass of wine for whale watching and to enjoy the sunset at the end of your day.
