Winter whale watching season begins!

Every winter the humpback whales travel thousands of miles from the Northern Pacific Ocean to the warm Hawaiian waters to breed and give birth to new calves.

It is believed that half of humpback whales in the Northern Pacific come to the Hawaiian Island.

Join us on our spacious catamaran boat to spot the majestic koholas’ playfully surfing, tail slapping and blowing spout in the air as you cruise the western coastline for a breathtaking view of the countryside away from the busy city for most memorable experience of Hawaii.

*We do not have a wild whale and other wildlife guarantees.
