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.

    False advertising, they tell you once your onboard that it’s not whale season and chances of seeing marine life is slim. They did give coupons to come back again for free, but when you travel from afar this isn’t just a weekend trip. Female help onboard was very friendly and helpful. Everyone else didn’t say a thing. Don’t waste your cash unless you want a nice hour sail.

    The person that called me after I scheduled online was very rude. I was having issues with the forms that I needed to fill out and instead of being kind, she was rude and demeaning. The guides might need to check the information that they are giving out on the tours. Males are not the only ones who breach!!
