See the beautiful Hamakua Coast on this afternoon sailing tour that highlights some of the most breathtaking places on the Big Island. Visit lush landscapes, hidden coves, and ancient Hawaiian villages, learning of the history and geography of the area. Mauna Kea, the tallest peak in Hawaii, towers over the west coast, with a snowcap visible at the very top during the winter months. The humpback whales are also a major attraction during the winter, as between the months of December and April they migrate to the warmer waters of Hawaii. Year round, you'll be able to spot spinner dolphins!
Whale Watching! Humpback whales are only in Hawaii from mid-December through mid-April, according to their migration habits. For the rest of the year, this tour operates as a regular sightseeing afternoon sail.
