Whale Profile: The Humpback Whale

Humpback whales are here, and your friends at Star of Honolulu couldn’t be more excited! Every winter, our favorite ocean visitors return to Hawaii’s warm waters, where they pass their time breeding, giving birth and nursing their young before making the trek back to Alaska. This month, we’re shining the spotlight on Humpback whales, and what makes them one of the most majestic creatures in the ocean. Known as Kohola in Hawaiian, Humpback whales are magnificent marine mammals that have a special significance to Native Hawaiians, who view them as a family aumakua, or spiritual ancestor who takes the form of an animal. Regarded highly in Hawaiian culture, Humpbacks are treated with the utmost respect. When seeing these marine mammals in their ocean home, it’s easy to understand why they deserve this respect. Ranging in size from 40 to 50 feet and weighing up to a massive 45 tons, Humpbacks are surprisingly graceful creatures, and have the ability to thrust nearly half of their bodies out of the water in an act known as breaching. These strong swimmers are just as elegant under the water, using their flukes, or large tail fins, to drive them through shifting currents. Want to learn more about humpbacks? Ask our certified Naturalists during your next Star of Honolulu whale watch cruise! To book your cruise today, call (808) 983-STAR (7827) or visit www.StarofHonolulu.com.
