It’s hard to believe now, but from 1825 to 1860, Lahaina was a bustling whaling town. The Whalers Village Museum takes you back in time through the eyes of a whaling sailor or “whaleman.”

Whalers Village is strategically situated to provide a direct view to the ‘Au‘au Channel, one of the most populated breeding and calving grounds of the Humpback Whale. `Au`Au means “take a bath," referring to the channel's calm, bath-like conditions. Each year, approximately 12,000 Humpback whales migrate from Alaska to Hawaii, with the majority arriving in Maui. Hawai‘i is the only U.S. state where Humpback whales mate, calve and nurse their young.

Located on Ka‘anapali Beach in the Whalers Village Fine Shops & Restaurants, the museum houses one of the largest collections of scrimshaw (drawings carved on whale teeth). Come learn about Maui’s whaling traditions, the whale species that visit Hawai‘i, and the hardships whalers endured while pursuing these magnificent 45-ton giants.
