Best Of Hawaii

Experience whale watching like no other place in the USA! Humpback whales arrive yearly in the Hawaiian Islands after a 3,000 mile journey to breed, have calf and to nurse their young. If you are visiting Hawaii during this time, don’t miss out and reserve your seat to see these magnificent creatures up close. Hawaii is the only state in the USA where humpback whales mate, calve and nurse their young. You’ll hear singing Humpback whales through our underwater hydrophone. If you’re lucky you may also see Spinner Dolphins.
