Whale Tales at Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea Now Through Mid-April 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."
