Kohola is the Hawaiian word for whale and throughout the winter our waters are filled with the sounds and views of the spectacular Humpback Whales! These charismatic creatures are the size of a school bus and often can be as curious about us as we are about them!
Humpbacks are here explicitly to breed and give birth in our warm protected waters. You tour may see social grouping ranging from moms nursing their newborns to large males fighting for a female’s affection. Your experienced guides are well versed in interpreting the whale behavior and sharing what the latest research is teaching us about these often mysterious creatures. Why do they sing? Why do they breach? We just don’t know the exact answer, but it sure is fun to experience!
Included in your tour is…
-A knowledgeable guide to teach you about the whales
-A variety of snacks
-Juice, soft drinks and water
-A bit of quiet time to listen for the whales song through a specialized microphone and amplifier (weather permitting)
-No fighting for space to see since our boats only carry 6 passengers max!!
-Great memories to last a lifetime!
We will do our best to keep you out of the elements but rain gear is never a bad idea throughout the South Kauai Winter Season. The whales aren’t afraid to get wet!! Bring along a camera to record the memories or give us a call to reserve a waterproof HD video/12mp image camera to rent.
