What to Bring on a Whale Watching Trip: A Checklist for Travelers

Maui Adventure

If you are a first-time whale watcher, you must be filled with excitement about what you may see on your trip. Witnessing magnificent creatures like whales breaching the water in spectacular fashion to attract mates is a worthwhile experience. To make the most out of your Whale Watch Maui Hawaii, it’s important to come prepared with the right gear and essentials. Packing for a whale watching trip can be daunting, as you want to make sure you have everything you need without bringing unnecessary items.

In this blog, we’ll provide you with a comprehensive checklist of what to bring on a whale-watching trip so that you can have a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable adventure.

  1.   Field guide

A field guide includes descriptions of all the possible animals you may witness in the sea during your whale-watching trip. The sea consists of phenomenon creatures having varying characteristics that can look similar to one another. So, having a guide that helps you differentiate the animals is critical when documenting what you see.

  1.   Polarized sunglasses

Do you know one thing that gets experienced whale watchers throughout the day? You’ve guessed it right! Sunnies or polarized glasses help tourists with not only cutting the sun’s glare but also the color of the lens plays a main role in enhancing the Hawaii Whale Watching Maui. While blue-colored sunglasses are great to have on sunnier days to extend the field of vision, yellow lenses can brighten up the water on foggier days, ensuring you don’t miss the opportunity to see that long-awaited spout.

  1.   Warm clothes

No matter how warm or sunny the weather is while you are on the top, the moment you leave out on the water, the temperature is bound to drop. A sudden drop in temperature can make the whale watching experience much colder than unexpected if you are unprepared. Carrying a light jacket with you means you can enjoy the trip without shivering in the corner. Always pack a fleece, outerwear style waterproof jacket that protects you from cold winds, a warm hat, gloves, and waterproof shoes just in case they are needed.
