Humpback Whale Exploration

Whale watching in Hilo, Hawaii

Come catch a glimpse of Hawai‘i’s gentle giants and winter visitors, the humpback whale! After a nonstop six- to eight-week and 6,000-mile migration from Alaska, approximately 12,000 North Pacific humpbacks arrive in the Hawaiian Islands every year around mid-December for a season of mating, birthing, and nurturing their newborn calves.

This annual migration is one of the longest of any mammal and brings a bit of winter magic to the Hawaiian Islands each. Join us as we venture outside Hilo’s breakwall in search of these majestic creatures for an up-close and personal, once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Each of our whale excursions includes our Marine Mammal Sightings Guarantee – assuring you the opportunity for a complimentary second adventure, should we not encounter either whales or dolphins.

Reserve your spot on our Hilo whale watching tour today!
