Humpback whales migrate to the warm ocean waters of Hawaii each winter to mate and give birth. The majority of whales are found off the coast of Maui from late November to mid-May. It takes a big celebration to honor these 40-ton marine mammals, which is why the Maui Whale Festival takes place during the entire month of February.
