January 7, 2009

Award-Winning Resort Invites Guests and their Families To Enjoy Unique Shared Experiences and True Exhilaration

MAUI, Hawaii, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ – With the cooling temperatures of winter knocking at the door and the first humpback whales arriving on the shores of breathtaking Wailea, now is the perfect time to turn dreams of tropical paradise into reality. Guests of Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea can now watch the majestic North Pacific humpback whales put on their spectacular show from the shores of Maui’s finest stretch of beach or experience it through the Resort’s complimentary outrigger canoe excursion with a new Whale Watching Package offered by the property.

To celebrate their much anticipated return, the Resort has created a special Whale Watching Package that includes the free daytime excursion along with a four-night stay and a complimentary fifth night. “Whether you are a first-time visitor or an experienced traveler, getting the opportunity to view these magnificent 40-ton creatures close up in their natural habitat is always an awesome experience,” said Thomas Steinhauer, Four Seasons Resort Maui’s General Manager and Regional Vice President of Four Seasons Resort Hawaii. “Time after time, our guests tell us that the memory of this experience lasts far longer than the pictures they take. It is an experience they share with family and friends – and one that becomes a lifetime memory as it is told and retold. This is one of the best places in the world to watch these magnificent creatures and partake of all the complimentary guest amenities and services we offer, not the least of which is this memorable whale watching excursion,” adds Steinhauer.

Captain Chris Dennis of the popular Alii Nui Dive Shop in Maui has been doing whale watches on the island for the past twenty years and states, “I have seen the mystery and majesty of these gentle giants who capture the fascination of people from all walks of life. You never know what they’ll do (breaching, swimming up close to or under the boat) or when or where they will do it, which adds to the thrill of the experience. And did I mention that the views of Maui from offshore are spectacular? 2008 brought a record number of whales to our island shores and we expect many more this year.”
