Highlights
  • Hear the humpback whales singing using a hydrophone
  • See mothers and calves swimming together
  • Admire these magnificent creatures up-close
Full description
Hawaii is the only state in the United States where humpback whales mate, calve and nurse their young. Humpbacks may find Hawaii suitable because of the warm waters, the underwater visibility, the variety of ocean depths and the lack of natural predators.

Mothers can be seen breaching alongside their calves and males can be seen competing with one another for females in fierce head-to-head battles.

Join a 2.5-hour cruise as you follow these magnificent sea creatures and listen to their singing using the underwater hydrophones. Snacks and beverages will be available during your cruise providing a unique and memorable experience for the whole family.
Includes
  • 2.5-hour cruise
  • Snacks (chips, granola bars, rice krispies and fruit snacks)
  • Beverages (water, juice and ginger ale)
  • Hydrophone speaker
