Reserve your annual Hawaiian eye Sunset Whale Watch Sail

It's that time again. Set the stage for another great Big Island night! Highlighted by Hawaii 's magnificent views of the Kohala Coast and Haleakala and Maui across the channel, this evening's relaxing Whale Watching Cruise offers the chance get with new and old friends, sip a cool beverage and enjoy delicious pupus while witnessing first-hand, the beauty of  Hawaii’s Gentle Giants – the Humpback Whale.  It's also common in the waters off of the Big Island to see pods of hundreds of dolphins swimming past your boat. 

These majestic humpback whales get their name from their style of exposing their dorsal fin when they dive, which gives them a humped appearance.

Breaching Whale

Your Captain will provide an informative narration of how this North Pacific group of Humpbacks migrates from coastal Alaska starting in November and congregate mostly in the Hawaiian waters.  With adults reaching sizes of up to 45 feet and 80,000 pounds, these Humpbacks come to Hawaii mainly to give birth and to mate.
