2435 Ka'anapali Parkway, Lahaina West Maui
Catch a glimpse of the wild days of Maui's whaling expeditions where seafarers would sign up for 3-5 year voyages to Japan and the Arctic. Visitors can immerse themselves in the sea-faring life of the 19th Century. The Whalers Village Museum displays over seventy species of whales. Introductory films about whaling history and Hawaii's state mammal, the Humpback Whale, are shown daily. Photo murals and the skeletal remains of a 40-foot Sperm Whale are dramatically exhibited. An authentic whale boat, complete with gear and a re-created ship's forecastle, graphically illustrates how 25 men lived in cramped quarters for years.
Open Daily 9:30am-10pm.
Self-guided audio tour available in English and Japanese.
Museum Gift Shop.
Across the hall from the museum is Hale Kohola, the "House of Whales", which features additional history of the whales.
Located on the mezzanine level of the Whalers Village Shopping Center off of Ka'anapali Road, north of Lahiana near Ka'anapali Beach.
