Take off from Honokohau Harbor for whale watching aboard the intimate and comfortable Wicked Wahine. Your captain holds a degree in Marine Science and will be a fountain of knowledge about these massive marine mammals and will explain how every winter, humpback whales make a 3000 mile journey from Alaska to Hawaii to give birth in our warm tranquil waters. The boat is a fast and comfortable ride that will get you out to the whales quickly and includes shade and a "hydrophone" so you can actually hear the humpback whales singing. With a maximum of only 14 passengers, you are in for a more intimate experience.
