Our marine life naturalist will astound you with facts about these gentle giants as they play, court and teach their young. You’ll 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. Don't just listen to us. Listen to him. Our award winning certified marine naturalist, Denver Leaman will wow you with facts and information.

Listen in with our underwater hydrophone to the sound of singing whales.

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!
Gratuity is never required but if you enjoyed your experience, a tip is always greatly appreciated!

Fantastic experience
Just returned from a great afternoon cruise aboard the Body Glove 2. Wow what a day!!! Saw whales galore! A special thank you to Denver our naturalist guide who was so informative about entire whale experience and habitat. I learned so much from him!! We saw whales and dolphins. The entire crew was there for spotting whales. Recommend Body Glove highly as well as the whales!!!
Whale watching
Our captain JD and his crew were great from the start. Complimentary fruit, cheese, and crackers were on board as well as coffee and water, and a bartender on board available for any other drinks. Not long after pulling out of the bay we found humpbacks and were given lots of information on these magnificent whales. Later we found bottlenose dolphins who played along the boat, and a whale brought ... morea tail to the surface and gave the water a few smacks. Great stuff! So many interesting facts given and so much attention given to the guests. Great service and great experience.
現地に着いてからホエールウォッチングに行こうと思い立ち、ウェブサイトから直接申し込みました。英語で詳細を読んだり申し込みをするのが苦でなければ、日本語OKのツアー会社を通すよりも料金が3割ほど安くなります。 出発時刻の15分前くらいに船着場に行くと既に参加者の行列ができていました。船が陸を離れると、すぐにクジラの姿を追いかけ始めます。クジラはどこに浮上してくるか予測できないので、タイミングが合わずに見逃したこともありましたが、2時間程度のクルーズ中に延べ10数頭見ることができました。尾びれを叩きつけるクジラはかなり近づいて見ることができました。ツアー中、ガイドがクジラやイルカなどについて解説していて船内に放送されていました。当然英語なので半分も理解できませんでしたが。... more
