See the mighty humpbacks on this Kona whale watching tour!
An incredible natural phenomenon is at play during the winter months in Hawaii. The majestic Pacific humpback whales make their pilgrimage from nearly 3,000 miles away to bask in the warm calm waters around the Hawaiian Islands. All the way from Alaska, hundreds and hundreds of whales travel to their sanctuary where they breed, play, and raise their calves. Join the crew of Body Glove Charters for a Kona whale watching tour on their beautiful, 65 foot double hull catamaran. Don’t miss your chance to see these awesome mammals as they play, learn, and compete. Whale sightings are guaranteed!
Watch for the telltale spout of water coming up from the surface as your eyes search the calm sea for whales. From December through March each year, these gentle marine giants visit our warm waters. This awesome 2.5 hour Kona whale watching tour has a certified naturalist onboard. They’ll bring you up to speed on all the mystifying whale behaviors you see before you. Watch them breach, pec slap, and tail slap, and see the babies mimic their mamas. With any luck, you’ll run into an exciting competition pod where the males show off their strength.
Listen to their beautiful eerie whale song that changes every year, on the underwater hydrophone! The males compose a complex series of sounds, which are learned and repeated by all the males in the population. Keep your eyes out for pods of spinner dolphins, too! These year round Hawaiian habitants are curious and agile, often approaching the boats to show off their signature leaps and spins.
Enjoy light snacks, juice, soda, coffee and hot chocolate onboard this comfortable and spacious vessel. The Kanoa II is a stable catamaran providing lots of shade, an ample seating area, and room to walk around, making it an excellent choice for families and children young and old. Schedule your Kona whale watching tour today to see these titans frolic in their Hawaiian playground!
