Incredible Kona whale watch tour with Hang Loose Boat Charters!
During the Hawaiian winter months of December through April, the clear blue waters teem with visitors from thousands of miles away. The Pacific humpback whales call Hawaii their seasonal home while they mate, calve and raise their young. The islands’ warm climate, shallow waters and few predatory beasts make this the prime location for these migratory whales. Make sure to reserve your seat on a Kona Whale Watch Tour today for a chance to get up close and personal with some of the largest mammals in the world!
The Hang Loose tour boat is the perfect vessel for your Kona Whale Watch Tour. It is an aluminum, double hull catamaran providing the best in technology for speed and stability. It also provides an ample seating area and lots of shade. Drinks and snacks are provided during your two and a half hour quest, and restrooms are also available on board.
The crew will keep you informed on the behaviors of the animals, including pec slaps, tail slaps and fluke dives. During peak season, you might even come across an active competition pod. Here the males contest aggressively for the attention of a female whale. Weighing up to 40 tons and as long as a school bus, you’ll get to see these behemoths launch themselves out of the air with a breach! You’ll also see the new calves in action as they learn the ropes. Watch Mom first, and see baby follow suit! The crew has a hydrophone on board which they’ll lower into the water when the whales are close. You’ll be able to listen to their beautiful and eerie song, which scientists say changes every year with the migration.
Join the crew of Hang Loose for a Kona Whale Watch Tour. Enjoy the wind in your hair, the gentle ocean breeze and the magnificent views of the Kona coast. Watch the Northern Pacific humpback whale in their playground and ours, beautiful Hawaii.
