About Our Event

The Keiki Whalewatch program is made possible by funds raised from this auction and generous supporters like you. Each year between the months of January- April, Pacific Whale Foundation educates over 3,000 school children in Maui County by bringing them aboard Pacific Whale Foundation's floating classrooms to experience marine wildlife in the surrounding waters of Maui, Molokai and Lanai. We nurture a lifelong love of the ocean and marine life by teaching keiki the value of these animals in their natural environment and how they can work to protect them. Community support is critical to the success of our keiki’s future and we invite you to lead by example as an active ocean advocate and environmental steward.


With a mission to protect the ocean through science and advocacy, and to inspire environmental stewardship, Pacific Whale Foundation (PWF) conducts Research, Education and Conservation programs for the communities in which it serves. Founded by Greg Kaufman in 1980 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to saving the world’s whales from extinction, PWF has now grown into a social enterprise that offers fee-based programs and services through PacWhale Eco-Adventures to help fund its nonprofit work. Combined with memberships, donations, charitable grants and a remarkable group of dedicated volunteers, PWF now reaches more than 400,000 individuals each year through its Maui and Australia offices and research projects in Ecuador and Chile.
