What to expect

About every year between December and April, more than 8,000 Humpback whales journey over 3,500 miles to Hawaii where they congregate to breed, calf and nurse their young.

On this 2.5-hour whale watching excursion, you'll get a rare opportunity to view and experience this phenomenon. Our marine life naturalist will astound you with facts about these gentle giants as they play, court and teach their young. You'll hear singing Humpback whales through our underwater hydrophones, and you may also see spinner dolphins, pilot and sperm whales, manta rays, sea turtles and more!
