Eleele: Humpback Whale Watching Raft Tour in Kauai

1. Eleele: Humpback Whale Watching Raft Tour in Kauai

Spend an afternoon observing humpback whales from a raft on a guided excursion from Eleele. Soak in the beauty of Kauai’s south shore while munching on light snacks and cold drinks onboard. Watch as the whales breach, spray, and tail slap. Listen to their songs through a state-of-the-art hydrophone. Hear groups or pods of whales socialize and communicate with each other through clicks, whistles, and pulses in distinct patterns that form the humpback song through a hydrophone. Learn how each sound serves a unique purpose as they navigate the waters, feed, and breed with each other.  From November to March, more than 10,000 humpback whales migrate to the Hawaiian Islands each year in search of a warmer climate, which makes it Kauai‘s peak whale watching season. This is also when these whales nurse their offspring, so keep an eye out for newborn whale calves learning how to play.
