Aston has ‘whale’ of a deal available

Every winter, pods of humpback whales swim from Alaska to calve in Maui’s balmy seas and Aston Hotels & Resorts’ Whale of a Vacation deal offers the opportunity to see the mammals up close and in person. Those who book Aston’s Whale of a Vacation will receive a voucher for one complimentary Whale Watch Cruise when purchasing the first Whale Watch Cruise from Maui Adventure Cruises. The two-hour cruise includes a ride to prime whale-watching spots aboard Maui Adventure Cruises’ Explorer Super Raft. Every seat is a “front row seat” and offers ocean-level views. There’s narration by experienced staff, onboard hydrophones to listen to the “songs” of the humpback whales and there are complimentary onboard refreshments.
