From now through April 5, 2019, we’re setting sail aboard Hawaii’s most popular whale watch cruise featuring guaranteed whale sightings, the most viewing space and an exclusive cruise only Child FREE special!

All through whale watch season, we invite visitors and locals alike to climb aboard and enjoy our spacious 60-foot high observation deck and four-walk around decks, offering the most outdoor space of any tour vessel to view Humpbacks. While spotting Humpback whales and soaking in the beautiful ocean and coastline views, guests can learn from our friendly crew of certified Naturalists, who are sure to entertain and educate through informative displays, engaging narration and handouts.

Join us for an Early Bird Whale Watch cruise from 8:45 – 10:45 a.m. If you have morning plans, opt instead for the 12 – 2:30 p.m. Premier Whale Watch cruise, during which you’ll enjoy a variety of Hawaiian cultural activities, such as lei making and hula and ukulele lessons.
