Humpback Whales and Other Whale Watching near Ko Olina

Due to the importance of these waters as breeding and feeding grounds we at differing times of the year, encounter such species as Humpback Whales Pilot Whales, Pygmy Killer Whales, Melon-headed Whales, False Killer Whales, Killer Whales and Beaked Whales.

Although there are six species of baleen whales and 18 species of tooted dolphins - humpback whales are everyone's reliable favorite. They return to Hawaii's warm waters every winter to mate and give birth from feeding in the colder Alaskan waters during the summer. Hawaii's favorite visitors are famous for their unique underwater "songs" best known to be variations on the previous year's theme..

The humpback whale is still on the endangered species list but a complete ban on whaling in Hawaiian waters has resulted in an ongoing increase in the local whale population since the 1960's.

The peak of whale activity is seen near Ko Olina each winter between February and March, but humpback whales have been observed as early as September and with a few staying as late as June, and are a daily occurrence from mid Dec through April.

We recommend the marine biologist led, and eco-friendly Wild Side Specialty Tours for a year-round whale watching cruise (dolphins and turtles included!), or the more family-geared Deluxe Wildlife Charter.
