Hawaii Whale Watching offers a spectacular, up-close experience with one of the ocean's most incredible creatures - the Humpback Whale. These marine mammals stay during summer months in cold Alaskan waters and migrate annually to the warm tropical waters of Hawaii for giving birth and mating. Marine mammal specialists estimate that up to 10,000 of these giants weighing up top 45 tons vacation in Hawaiian waters from January through April.

Customer Review from Janet Graham for Whale watching: Great fun and a lot of good information to learn about the whales and other marine life. We were able to see a mom and her calf, plus a male escort and the calf was very inquisitive and entertaining!

Hawaii Swimming with wild Dolphins. Have you dreamed of swimming with Dolphins in their natural habitat? Take one of several excursions from Honokohau Harbor in Kona that take you out to snorkel and dolphin swim.

Customer Review from Michelle Gorton for Swimming with Dolphins: Experienced guides show you the wonders of the islands, and happily answer any question you might have along the way.

Big Island Volcano Helicopter Tours, provided by Blue Hawaiian Helicopters, Sunshine or Paradise, offer helicopter flights over Kilauea Volcano, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa. This is the best way to discover both the island's beauty and its volcanic fury. The island will reveal itself to you in ways you never imagined. Experienced guides show you the wonders of the islands, and happily answer any question you might have along the way.

Customer Review from Jesus A Romero-Perez: The only way you could really make the helicopter flight better is to land near the site where the lava enters the sea, and I guess that's a tough order to fulfill. Barring that, I couldn't think of a way to improve the flight.

Hawaii Mauna Kea Summit Tour: Once at the summit of Mauna Kea you are afforded spectacular views of the horizon, Haleakala on Maui, Mauna Kea's world-class array of telescopes, and the famous Mauna Kea sunset. Here you'll experience the spiritual energy of what many Hawaiians believe to be the most sacred place in all the islands. At the summit you stand on top of the world's tallest mountain which rises from the ocean floor to more than 31,000 feet in elevation. In your hooded parka, you'll stand in awe at both nature's sublime creation and man's astonishing technological achievements.

Customer review from M. Whitted-Villarreal for Mauna Kea Summit Tour: We really liked our guide. He was pleasantly personable, and caring. Additionally, he told stories in a lively manner, knowledgeable about the topic, and we just thoroughly enjoyed this activity.

Big Island Manta Ray Tours: Although Mantas are most commonly seen during daylight hours, it's only because that's when most observers are in the water. Scientifically, we don't know exactly what Mantas do at night or how active they are, but they may feed most actively at night, when many planktonic creatures naturally rise surfaceward, providing a rich bounty on which Mantas may feed. Using dive lights, we are able to attract concentrations of these plankton and therefore attract the Mantas.
Unlike most of their relatives, Manta Rays have NO stinger and are completely safe to be around. We invite you to have yet another experience of a lifetime...a night snorkel with these angels of the Ocean.

Swimming with the dolphins was absolutely one of the highlights of our trips to Hawaii! When we were booking it, we wondered if it would be worth the money, but we had NO regrets whatsoever. John was a fantastic guide. He was friendly, warm and professional and clearly has a real love for these animals. He began the tour by singing a Hawaiian chant that set the scene beautifully, then made sure we were right in the middle of the dolphins a number of times. Afterwards, as a bonus, he took us out looking for whales. We saw 8-9 from a distance (50-60 yards) and then were lucky enough to have a humpback surface within 10 feet of the boat. Amazing! Good thing we had a camera ready. The snorkel equipment was high quality and I felt very safe at all times. I noticed John kept a close eye on all of us (there were 6 passengers including 2 children) when we were in the water to make sure we were safe. I especially appreciated that since I got a little carried away and swam far from the boat with a group of the dolphins I was following (close enough to touch! John was aware of where I was and immediately brought the boat out to pick me up. FANTASTIC experience and one I can recommend without hesitation! >>> Swimming with Dolphins from Kona, Big Island
