Naturalist Daily Report

Welcome Aboard from Whale Naturalist

Aloha, Ladies and Gentlemen!! Welcome aboard for our 2018 Whale Watch Season! My name is Jillian, and I’m one of the Whale Naturalists aboard the Star of Honolulu! Every year from December to April, the North Pacific Humpback Whales migrate down from their feeding grounds of Alaska to their breeding grounds right here in Hawaiian waters! Humpback Whales are distributed all over the world, and in October 2016, the Humpback Whale population as a whole came off of the Endangered Species list! These majestic creatures are slowly repopulating the waters, and I couldn’t be more happier! Come aboard explorers and lets have a whale of a time!!

Climb aboard Star of Honolulu’s Premier Whale Watch Cruise

Dive into winter with a whale watching cruise for an experience you will never forget! We’re thrilled that the majestic Humpback whales have made their annual journey back to our islands’ warm waters, and our favorite way to spot them is aboard the Star of Honolulu. From now through April 5, 2018, we invite guests to climb aboard Hawaii’s most popular whale watch adventure!

With four walk-around decks, three types of stabilizers and a 60-foot high observation deck, the Star of Honolulu is the best vessel for viewing whales in their underwater home. During the whale watch experience, guests will enjoy our friendly and knowledgeable crew of Naturalists, informative handouts and an educational program for the keiki (children). Adults and keiki alike can also immerse themselves in a wide range of cultural activities, from lei making to ukulele lessons.

Our friends at the Star of Honolulu look forward to meeting you at the dock! For more information or to book a cruise today, call (808) 983-STAR (7827) or visit Our dolphin friends would also love to see you, so for more information on a Wild Dolphin Watch cruise, visit!

Falling in Love in Hawaii’s Warm Waters

Have you ever wondered why humpback whales visit us at the same time every year? It’s all in the name of love!

Every winter, humpbacks migrate away from the frigid Alaskan waters to our pleasant, warm ocean, spending their “vacation” traveling in pods as they breed, give birth, and nurse their young. To humpbacks, Hawaii is their breeding grounds, and they travel over 3,000 miles every year to enjoy this much-needed season of love.

When you climb aboard the Star of Honolulu for one of our popular whale watch cruises, you may have the chance to observe majestic humpback whales as they swim along with their calves. Keep your eyes out for gorgeous sights like these aboard the STAR!
