Full description

Get the rare opportunity to see humpback whales from a comfortable and stylish boat. Enjoy light refreshments as your knowledgeable crew provides a history of the whales. After, see a traditional hula show prepared by the crew.

Begin your adventure at Kewalo Boat Harbor and board your glamorous 2-decker boat with a Titanic-style bow, bathroom and state-of-the-art surround sound system.

Take part in a traditional E Ho Mai ceremony, asking the sea gods for a safe trip and plenty of opportunities to see the whales. After, enjoy pastries and morning beverages to fuel yourself for your marine adventure. As you cruise around the Diamond Head monument, keep an eye open for tails, fins, and blowing water. If the whales come close enough, listen to their songs with a state-of-the-art underwater hydrophone microphone.

As you head back to the harbor, sit back, relax, and enjoy the crew’s hula show.
