Celebrating “60 Years of Aloha!”

In the spirit of our 60th anniversary milestone, we recently debuted a brand new “60 Years of Aloha” show aboard the Star of Honolulu, featuring fabulous new costumes, dazzling choreography and impressive special effects!

We’re going back in time to celebrate a couple’s journey from Hawaii and across the Pacific Ocean. Thanks to the stunning work of Honolulu-based designer Kathe James, the new show features the largest cast on island waters decorated in beautiful, brand new costumes. We also enlisted a talented team of professionals from Hawaii, Tahiti and New Zealand to choreograph new, authentic dances to keep our guests moving and grooving throughout the evening!

Humpback Whale Profile

Whale watch breaching.

The humpbacks are here! Our favorite ocean visitors have returned to Hawaii’s warm ocean, where they spend the winter months breeding, giving birth, and nursing their young before returning to the cold Alaskan waters.

In Hawaiian, humpback whales are called kohala. These magnificent creatures have a special significance to Native Hawaiians, who view kohala as a family aumakua, or spiritual ancestor who takes the form of an animal. Many Hawaiians today still honor their aumakua and treat them with the utmost respect.

When watching these enormous marine mammals, it isn’t hard to understand why they deserve this respect. Humpbacks can range in size from 40 to 50 feet and weigh up to a whopping 45 tons. At the same time, they are remarkably graceful creatures, and can thrust nearly half of their bodies out of the water in a grand gesture known as breaching. Humpbacks are also very strong swimmers and use their flukes, or large tail fins, to drive them through the water.
