Hawaii Big Island Whale Watching Tours
If you plan on vacationing in Hawaii between December and April, be sure to check out a Big Island of Hawaii Whale Watching tour offered through Big Island Activities Discount. Big Island Whale Watching with Blue Sea Cruises and Body Glove Cruises will complete your Hawaii vacation.
Whale Watching Tours get you up close and personal with the majestic humpback whale. There are several Big Island of Hawaii Whale Watching tours that take place during this whale watching season. Big Island Whale Watching in Kona is the most prominent Whale Watching Tour. Hawaii Whale Watching adventures are available in both the morning and afternoon.
Every year, these magnificent creatures journey from Alaska’s waters to the waters encircling the Hawaiian Islands. Here the whales mate, cavort and give birth. While in Hawaii, full-grown whales don’t eat and instead rely on stored energy. The new born calves grow at the incredible rate of about 100 pounds a day off of their mother’s milk. Calves range from 10-16 ft in length and weigh an average of 3,000 lbs when born. You’ll learn about this and more during Whale Watching Tours through Big Island Activities Discount.
During the Big Island of Hawaii Whale Watching tour, you may even get to see sperm whales, pilot whales, pygmy killer whales, the rare beaked whales, and the Melon Headed whales. You don’t have to go on a boat to enjoy Big Island Whale Watching. During Hawaii Whale Watching season, it’s common to be able to observe the amazing humpback whales directly from the shore. But these observances are from pretty far away, and it’s nowhere close to the excitement you’ll experience when you get close up on a Big Island of Hawaii Whale Watching Tour. On Big Island Activities Discount’s Big Island Whale Watching Tours, you’ll experience the Big Island Humpback Whales instead of just seeing them. Just imagine the thrill of peering over the boat’s edge and seeing these magical creatures swimming below. Hawaii Whale Watching Tours offered by Blue Sea Cruises and Body Glove Cruises are breathtaking.
By law, Whale Watching Tour boats must stop at least 100 yards away from whales, but often, these curious creatures will come closer than that. You might even be treated to the sound of a spouting whale and the scent of whale breath! The majority of Big Island of Hawaii Whale Watching Tours through Big Island Activities Discount are equipped with hydrophone systems that allow you to listen to the beautiful underwater songs of Hawaiian whales. This is how whales communicate with one another: through their songs.
The Humpback Whales start to arrive in Hawaii in November, and the majority of them are here by the start of January. During peak season, Hawaiian locals often refer to the ocean as “whale soup” because of the amount of whales that populate the seas. Marine mammal specialists have estimated that there are up to 10,000 humpback whales in Hawaii’s waters during Hawaii Whale Watching season.
