Dolphin/Humpback whale watching in Kailua-Kona, the Big Island, Hawaii
We now are offering a chance to do some dolphin/whale watching on our way to snorkel on a coral reef. On this charter, we will look for the dolphins that we swam with on our morning tour but we don’t get in the water with them. We can also watch some whales on our tour. We’ll take you to some secluded reefs with lots of tropical fish and maybe even see a Manta Ray that’s feeding on the surface or being cleaned on a reef.
Our winter months here in the Islands are full of visitors. Not only are many people seeking to escape the cold winter days at home but also our native animals, the Humpback whales. They are returning from their feeding grounds in Southeastern Alaska.
The whales come here not to escape the cold but to give birth to their young. When a calf is born, they have no blubber insulation to keep them warm in the cold waters of Alaska. Therefore, the annual migration of the humpback whales is the longest known migration of any mammal. They seek out breeding waters of approximately 75 degrees.
Our Dolphin/Whale watching trips are exciting from the moment we leave the Marina. We never know just where they will be. We always head for the Humpback Whale Marine Sanctuary which is just a 25-minute ride. Our fast boat is able to get to the whales quickly so you have more time observing them.
Once again, we only take out 6 passengers and are not restricted to a time schedule. If we are having a wonderful experience with the whale/dolphin watch or snorkeling you can choose to spend what time we have with your choice of marine life.
