Whales have returned to Hawaiian waters for the Winter! Whale watching is one of the most popular activities on the Hawaiian Islands. More than 10,000 endangered humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) migrate from the cold waters of Alaska each year to mate and calve in tropical Hawaiian waters between December and April.During their annual sojourn here, these whales exhibit many interesting and acrobatic behaviors that can easily be seen and enjoyed from the numerous whale watch tours available throughout the Hawaiian Islands. The name humpback describes the motion it makes as it arches its back out of the water in preparation for a dive.

We set off late - there were loads of customers waiting around at slip 3 but no boat and noone really to direct so we were rather worried we were in the wrong place. Also we didn't (or weren't told about) the videocam and sound system for listening/watching the whales underwater so we don't know if we missed it or it wasn't working but we enjoyed the experience
A wonderful experience and the best weather of the whole vacation! Very exciting whale watch.
