Special Feature:

Includes:
Whale watching (seasonal)
Description:

Humpback Whales migrate to the Hawaiian Islands during the winter months Mid December to March. The humpback whales come to the Hawaiian Islands for the purpose of calving and mating, the warm inshore waters surrounding these islands offer the young whales’ protection from predators as they build up enough body fat for their 3,000 mile journey north.

Males reach 43 feet (14 m) and females 45 feet (15 m) in lenghth and weigh 35 tons, on average. Males produce intricate “songs”, only during the mating season. Whale “songs” are composed of themes, which in turn, are composed of phrases.

These acrobatic animals are known for breaching and slapping the water with their tails and pectoral fins. This type of whale can be found from as far South as South America, as far North as Alaska, in Australia, New Zealand, as well as a number of south pacific islands, but one of the best places to view them up close is in the warm waters of the Hawaiian Islands.

Frequently Asked Questions
Click on the red "Book It" button and you will see live availability. Keep in mind availability changes constantly, so make sure to book in advance!
H Tours Hawaii is a "one stop shop" for all the best activities in the Hawaiian Islands. Since we work with many providers, reservations are necessary. WE HIGHLY recommend making reservations, as many activities are at a discount when you reserve in advance. Some providers even charge higher for those "walking in" because they know chances are you're not going to walk away. Finally, a reservation ensures you have a space on the tour. Trust us you don't want to spend so much time and money to come to Hawaii and then miss out on an activity because they were booked out!
Choose the tour you are interested in, click the red “Book It” button adjacent to the tour information, and complete the booking form.
Most companies, if not all, require you to call them if you're trying to book something 2-3 days in advance. Do you really want to be spending your valuable time in Hawaii calling around to desperately find something that is available to do? While we can usually accommodate most last-minute bookings, we highly encourage those that are checking out our website far in advance to book 2-3 weeks prior to desired date. You never know if there's a convention, special event, or an increase in overall visitors in town, and it would be a shame if the activities that you want to do are sold out because you waited until the last minute. Basically, if you know you want to do it, just book it!
Most companies have a set of centrally located hotels that they do pick ups from. When you select your hotel, you will see the pickup location and directions. This makes the pickup process short so you can start the tour as soon as possible!
Gratuity is never required but if you enjoyed your experience, a tip is always greatly appreciated!

Captain Jenna and her crew did not disappoint! Our experience was spectacular. Their love of their job was so evident. They truly want you to enjoy every moment. They got as excited as us to see each whale sighting....and we saw over 15 amazing whales and turtles too, AND we were allowed to jump off and snorkel to view the turtles...and we thought it was only a whale watch. My husband typically gets ... moresea sick, but Captain Jenna knew just how long to keep the boat still to keep us all feeling fine! Thanks for all the great pictures Paul and all the extras from First Mate Nickie! Sandwiches were really good too!
