February 17-20, 2023, 8:00am-5:00pm

Join leading scientists, photographers, and conservationists this February as Whale Tales returns to The Ritz-Carlton Maui, Kapalua. 

Whale Trust is a Maui-based whale research and education organization that brings together global whale and marine science enthusiasts to educate, enlighten, and unite our community with the latest knowledge in whale research!

"The 2023 event will bring marine scientists from Central America (Joëlle De Weerdt), Mexico (Dr. Jorge Urbán), Philippines (Dr. Jo Marie Acebes), Japan (Dr. Nozomi Kobayashi), British Columbia (Dr. Jim Darling) and Hawai'i (Dr. Meagan Jones, Dr. Marc Lammers) together for a comprehensive update on humpbacks across the North Pacific region. 

In addition to visual presentations from Whale Trust research photographers Flip Nicklin and Ralph Pace, Whale Tales will feature award-winning filmmakers Howard and Michele Hall with a special screening of their movie Soul of the Ocean. Marine scientist, explorer, and filmmaker Gaelin Rosenwaks will also present and sign her new photography book, "Sperm Whales: The Gentle Goliaths of the Oceans" (Rizzoli, 2022). 

For over two decades, the Whale Trust research team has dedicated itself to exploring and understanding whale songs and natural behavior patterns in whales. This year's program will feature cutting-edge presentations, benefit whale watches, and an Art & Education Expo showcasing ocean-conscious businesses, local artists, and conservation organizations."

Visit WhaleTales.org to register for the event, or call +1.808.572.5700 for more information! All proceeds from registration will directly support whale research through the Whale Tales Beneficiaries Fund. 

The organization also asks for donations with each registration in honor of this spectacular event. The suggested donation to keep this valuable event possible is $60 per guest. While this is appreciated, Whale Tales also honors their belief in making marine education accessible for all. To do that, they offer free and discounted registration to students, teachers, and kama 'āina.
