Whale watching on Hawaii's Kona Coast can be an unforgettable experience. Home to an abundance of marine life - including some of the largest creatures ever known, like humpback whales - the area hosts some incredible whale-watching tours that give visitors an exclusive look into these magnificent mammals in their natural environment. Between December and April these magnificent mammals migrate from Alaskan feeding grounds in search of warmer waters in Hawaii in order to mate and give birth. Whale watching tours allow visitors to witness these magnificent beings up close!
As soon as a tour boat leaves its harbor, anticipation builds in preparation for that magical moment when passengers see their first spout. Passengers should bring sunglasses, sunscreen and light layers as the sun can be intense on the water. A camera should also be brought as seeing a breaching whale is truly magical!
On these tours, expert guides offer insights into the life cycle and behavior of humpback whales, giving passengers an unforgettable experience of these gentle giants breaching, fluking, and singing their hauntingly beautiful songs. Tour boats maintain a respectful distance so as to preserve the natural habitat for these beautiful creatures.
Please be aware that tours require at least six passengers for departure, so booking early to avoid disappointment. Whale watching on the Kona Coast offers an unforgettable experience that allows one to connect with nature while witnessing its magical migration process.
