Visit The Big Island’s Humpback Whale Sanctuary for an incredible whale watching experience!

Kona Offshore Adventures is excited to offer Big Island whale watching tours. As we depart Honokohau Harbor and head north along the Kona coast to the Big Island’s Humpback Whale Sanctuary, get ready to have the experience of a lifetime as large numbers of humpback whales migrate from the ice-cold waters from Alaska on their 6-8-week journey to their winter home in the Hawaiian Islands. You can expect to see mothers and calves sunning themselves in the warm Hawaiian sun. Males can often be seen breaching the water surface, providing awesome aerial displays. They also do tail and pectoral slaps to communicate with the other whales in the area. Listen as we lower our hydrophone into the water to hear the whales sing! We bring you up close and personal for the best whale watching Kona offers.
