Full description
Join this whale watching tour to see these majestic creatures up close and personal. Whale sightings are guaranteed and if you don't see whales on your trip, come back again for free. Thousands of Humpback whales migrate back to Hawaii every year between December through April. Come along to see these beautiful mammals at their best on the exciting eco-friendly whale watching excursions. Dolphins are likely to be seen, too.

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. Learn about the whales' unique behavior and why their long journey is so important while watching them fluke, spy hop, spout, and breach out of the water.
