Embark on Our Cornerstone Dolphin Discoveries, Kona Whale and Dolphin Watch Tours
Two of our foundational tours are our whale watching tour and dolphin watch & snorkel tours! Humpback whales are the Hawaiian Island’s favorite winter visitor; usually arriving between November to March in order to give birth and raise their young calves as well as mate– after about five weeks they then head back to the cold Alaskan waters. However, if you’d like to book this tour in the humpback’s off season, there are year-round whales that live around Hawaii, in the Pacific.
Our passion is dolphins; these year long marine favorites are some of the smartest mammals in the world. Our Wild Dolphin Watch and Snorkel combo is an amazing value! Our naturalists guides take you along the Kona Coast to view and learn about wild dolphins; from there we will go explore other ocean life that lives in the tropical waters around the island.
