Hawaii Whale Watching

From December to the beginning of May is the season for Whale Watching in Hawaii.  These majestic giants travel from the gulf of Alaska to Hawaii to mate, give birth and care for their young.
Humpback whales weigh up to 45 tons.  Despite their weight they are known for their intriguing and acrobatic behaviors.  To see graceful humpback whales breach by propelling out of the ocean is an amazing experience.

Humpback whales sing underwater.  Many Hawaii Whale Watch tours are equipped with
hydrophones that allow passengers to hear the songs of the Humpback Whales.

On Saturday, February 26, 2011 the Pacific Whale Foundation held the Great Maui Whale Count.  Volunteers and researchers for the Great Maui Whale Count tallied 1,607 sightings of humpback whales from Maui’s shorelines from 8:30 am – 11:55 am.  The numbers show that the humpback whale population in the North Pacific is increasing by 7-8% a year. 

Hawaii Whale Watch season is almost over!  Many Hawaii Whale Watch tours end in April.  You will find a variety of Hawaii Whale Watching tours to choose from.  Hawaii Discount offers Oahu Whale Watch tours, Maui Whale Watch tours, Kauai Whale Watch tours and Big Island Whale Watch tours. Reserve you chance to see the humpback whales while they are still in Hawaii!

    Haven't seen humpback whales, but a different kind (not sure what kind) off of ko olina when we went whale watching a few years ago.

    Would love to see humpback whales one day…
