Eco Focus: A Whale of a Time

Looking for a holiday that offers more of an eco-focus? The AAA Five-Diamond Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua – located on Maui’s stunning Northwest Shore – is offering the chance to learn about whales and the ocean environment from the world’s top experts at the 14th Annual Whale Tales event from 14-17 February. Presented by Whales Trust, a non-profit organisation supporting whale research in Hawaii, the fundraising event allows researchers to share their latest findings with both guests and locals.

Through engaging talks from leading international marine scientists, photographers and conservationists, guests can discover why thousands of North Pacific Humpback whales travel over 3,500 miles to the warm Hawaiian waters each winter. There will be opportunities to get up close and personal with these majestic creatures through immersive, hands-on educational experiences and whale watch cruises with special guest presenters. The very definition of aloha.

From $849 per night (based on two sharing) including access to the Whale Tales event. For details, and to book, visit For more information about Whale Tales, visit
