About Small Boat Whale Watching from Kona
There isn’t a bad angle to be found on these intimate seasonal whale watching excursions. These speedy rafts are sturdy yet small, meaning only a dozen or so passengers and a sea-level view of the big show. For three hours, you’ll enjoy a front row seat as you spy on some of Hawaii’s most beautiful visitors–the humpback whales. Learn their fascinating story while they perform their graceful acrobatics. They’ll swim, breach, tail-slap, and dive while you listen to whalesong and take in the 360-degree views of the Pacific and Kona coastline while snapping some amazing photos–no telephoto lens required.
The best thing about the trip was that our Captain clearly wanted to make our trip the best that it could be. We stopped on the way out for some dolphins and nearby humpback whales. After our first snorkel stop he told us that he had something special to show us. After zipping across the ocean we slowed down and were surrounded by a pod of pilot whales and Blainville beaked whales. This was truly something special.
