Pacific Whale Foundation s Eco-Adventure cruises earn consistently high ratings on Trip Advisor, Yelp and other travel sites.. We are also proud of the many accolades that we have received from travel writers and guidebooks.. Here are just a few of the accolades we ve received.. If you want to get within splashing distance of 40-ton leviathans.. acrobatically jumping out of the water, take a whalewatching cruise.. No one does them better than Pacific Whale Foundation a conservation group that takes pride in its green, naturalist-led whalewatch trips.. Lonely Planet Guide,.. Discover Maui.. An excellent, excellent choice.. All cruises are led by experienced marine biologists who get into the water with you for a guided tour of the reefs.. In addition to getting a great tour, you can be assured that you re helping to protect the environment, because all profits from these cruises go to marine conservation.. Frommer s Maui.. Plenty of tour operators will take you to see the whales, but the nonprofit Pacific Whale Foundation combines comfort with knowledgeable staffers.. National Geographic Traveler, Hawaii Insider s Picks.. The foundation  ...   you ll receive a Just-A-Fluke coupon for another trip.. Fodor s Hawaii.. The most informative whalewatches by far are the cruises sponsored by Pacific Whale Foundation, a nonprofit research, conservation and education organization.. Birnbaum s Hawaii.. Pacific Whale Foundation is the humpback whale of Hawaii s whale conservation groups.. an organization ahead of its time, a pioneer in the whalewatch business, an ecotourism juggernaut that was doing ecotourism before anyone knew what to call it.. The Maui News.. Pacific Whale Foundation is a nonprofit organization that focuses on marine research, public education and marine conservation to protect and save whales, dolphins, coral reefs and the oceans beyond.. Its efforts include serving more than 10,000 Maui County schoolchildren with marine education programs each year and conducting six marine research programs in Hawaii and Australia.. As a nonprofit, Pacific Whale Foundation is largely self-supporting, thanks to its wholly owned subsidiary called Pacific Whale Foundation s Eco-Adventures.. This cruise company operates under for profit rules but donates all profits to support the group s work.. Pacific Business News.. The real threat to whales is whaling, which has endangered many whale species.. This is why I say to young people: If you re ever in school or at the mall and somebody in your group whispers to you, Pssst.. wanna go whaling? you should just say no.. Also you should tell your congressperson that you favor the thirty-day cooling-off period on the purchase of harpoons.. Or you can support the Pacific Whale Foundation, which is the nonprofit outfit that operates the boat that took us whalewatching.. Dave Barry.. Our voyage with Pacific Whale Foundation the night before was also unusual, weatherwise.. The twilight sky was striped with silver clouds instead of the normal, Mai-Tai-enhanced sunset pinks, purples and yellows.. The ocean was like glass.. It was definitely whale soup out there with plenty of mothers, newborns and male escorts hoping to get lucky virtually surrounding the boat.. The commentary from our naturalist onboard was full of details we had never heard on scores of previous sailings.. (Have you ever noticed how the gender of the person providing the narration tends to determine how the whales are portrayed â as competitive rivals by male naturalists; as nurturing, caring mothers by their female counterparts?).. But despite the lively commentary, the whales themselves didn t feel like showing off.. Their activity was slow.. Lazy.. Content.. It didn t matter.. Despite what the folks at Kodak might tell you, in spite of the whales power to send a whole boatload of passengers, eyes glued to their viewfinders, running from one side of the vessel to the other like a Keystone Cop comedy at sea, this actually is not a Sea World attraction.. Even when you re lucky enough to get a tail, or a fin slap like a wave hello, or even a breach, or even two breaches at once that elicit spontaneous oohs, ahhhs and cheers from the boat, the image in the viewfinder will turn out to just be a little black smudge in a field of blue when you get around to printing it.. The Kodak moment s not the thing.. What s great is just being out here with them on a lazy Sunday afternoon, as though, regardless of whether you have legs or fins, we re all cousins in the same extended family.. Rick Chatenever, The Maui Scene..

    Descriptive info: Tourist on this Planet.. March 6, 2012.. Making the Scene.. After two weeks traipsing through exotic, faraway worlds, I knew I was back on Maui when a baby whale breached off the side of the boat as Marty Dread sang, It s gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day..

The Miami Herald.. Josefina came to Ecuador in 2002.. She returned in 2004 and over the course of a month toured the central coast of Ecuador in Machalilla National Park and visited Salinas.. She came back again in 2005.. Though we can say Josefina probably likes Ecuador, she is not your typical tourist.. She is one of the thousands of humpback whales that arrive in the waters of Ecuador every year between June and September - part of a yearly migration to mate and give birth in warm equatorial waters.. Josefina, along with other whales like Clarita, Clementina, and Tres Rayos (Three Stripes) are all part of the national register of the Pacific Whale Foundation (PWF)..
