Amazing experience to see with your own eyes what you normally only see on National Geographic. Caparazón Shelley made sure we saw as many whales as we could and also taught us a lot about them in the way. Definitely recommend this tour

Outstanding trip for family, it was my family and one couple on the boat. Perfect outing. We saw whales, while learning about the local history

Ok, we didn't go on this tour. It got canceled because there were not enough participants. However, this company went out of their way to provide us with an experience. They not only moved us to an amazing snorkel tour, they even took time at the end to head out to deeper waters just to check and see if we could see some whale activity. Jen and Jen were top notch guides and we loved the experience.

About This Deal

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Kailua-Kona, Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii

Board one of our sleek, powerful, twin-engine, rigid hull inflatable vessels to search for and observe the seasonal migration of the Humpback Whales along with some of their year-round cousins – Pilot Whales, Beaked Whales, Melon-headed Whales, and others that are regularly found along the Kona coastline.

Your adventure focuses on finding these magnificent mammals and spending quality time with them, by observing, photographing, learning, and listening to their song and other vocalizations using our underwater hydrophone system.

This 2.5-hour adventure does not include getting out of the boat or swimming to observe the whales. But it's the perfect opportunity for those who love the ocean and all its wonders. Adults, children, families and friends of all ages and abilities will enjoy together one of nature’s grandstand most elegant creations.
