Full description
See humpback whales play and splash in the deep blue Pacific waters as you zip along Waikoloa's amazing coastline. You will enjoy a fast-paced coastal whale watch on Kona’s newest powerboat, providing a wonderful vantage point to see humpback whales. Hawaii is known as one of the best places in the world to go whale watching, as the humpback whales migrate from Alaska to the warm waters surrounding the Hawaiian Islands to give birth. On this tour you will learn all about the whales' unique behavior, and just why their long journey is so important. You will learn all of this information whilst watching them fluke, spy hop, spout, and breach out of the water. After more than a hour out at sea learning about these fascinating mammals, you will be returned back to the pier, marking the end of your whale watching experience.

    Picked us up at the hotel. Comfortable boat. Knowledgeable and helpful guides. Saw whales multiple times. Even better, we got to hear whale song from below us. That was a crazy, unexpected experience.
