Come see the Humpback Whales in their natural habitat on the Whale Watchtour!

Humpback Whales migrate to the Hawaiian Islands during the winter months Mid-December to March. The humpback whales come to the Hawaiian Islands for the purpose of calving and mating, the warm inshore waters surrounding these islands offer the young whales’ protection from predators as they build up enough body fat for their 3,000-mile journey north.

Males reach 43 feet (14 m) and females 45 feet (15 m) in length and weigh 35 tons, on average. Males produce intricate “songs”, only during the mating season. Whale “songs” are composed of themes, which in turn, are composed of phrases.

These acrobatic animals are known for breaching and slapping the water with their tails and pectoral fins. This type of whale can be found from as far South as South America, as far North as Alaska, in Australia, New Zealand, as well as a number of south pacific islands, but one of the best places to view them up close is in the warm waters of the Hawaiian Islands.

This was exactly what I wanted to do, I have zero complaints. The staff was very knowledgeable, everything went as promised. I’m so glad we got to catch the whale season before it was over.

I took my kids on this tour since they always wanted to do a boat ride. Combine with whale watching this was just the perfect experience.

We observed more whales than we anticipated seeing. Our biggest fear was not to see none but we ended up enjoyed every single moment!
