Every year between December and April, more than 8000 Humpback whales journey over 3500 miles to Hawaii where they congregate to breed, calf and nurse their young. Our Whale Watching Excursion offers you a rare opportunity to view and experience this phenomenon. Our marine life naturalist will astound you with facts about these gentle giants as they play, court and teach their young. You will hear singing Humpback whales through our underwater hydrophones, and you may also see Spinner Dolphins, Pilot and Sperm Whales, Manta Rays, Sea Turtles and more.
Make your own way to the departure point:
We are located on the Big Island of Hawaii and depart from the Kailua Pier in the heart of Kailua Kona on the west side approximately six miles south from Keahole Kona Airport.
We have free parking located about one block east of the pier at the Illima Court Shopping Center. It's about a 5-minute walk to the pier where we depart. Boarding is always 30 minutes before departure. We depart on time and cannot hold the vessel for late arrivals.
