Listen to the humpbacks sing beautiful island music on this Kona-Kohala whale watching boat ride! Unlike other hit-and-miss excursions, this whale watching trip guarantees whales every time! No 40-minute boat ride off the coast to get started. Within moments of lifting anchor, you’ll have stunning humpbacks in your sights!
Hop aboard a luxury vessel and travel off the coast of Kona Kohala.
You’re in Hawaii’s most prominent humpback whale breeding ground; within minutes you’ll be spotting the beautiful creatures.
Aboard, you’ll find a nifty hydrophone, which lets you listen to the whale songs live from the ship!
If you get a little hungry, don’t sweat it—delicious island snacks and beverages are at your disposal.
All the while, soak up the pristine island scenery: crystal clear waters, rainforest, towering mountaintops and more!
Discover how sociable these creatures really are. Often they’ll swim right up to the boat, curious about the many onlookers. With two hours of observation time, you’ll learn all about the humpback. Marvel at the glorious sea mammals, all from their natural Hawaiian habitat!
This is getting to the pointy end. Heights, speed, endurance or a combination of all form part of this adventure. Be prepared to be challenged both physically and mentally. Bring that 'can do' attitude and maybe a change of clothes. You're about to get a taste of Serious Fun!
