Every winter between the months of December and April, humpback whales migrate to the warm, Pacific waters of Hawaii to calve and nurse their newborns. If you're lucky, you'll be able to see the whales play offshore just by standing on the coast and looking out to the ocean! For a more reliable experience, book a whale watching tour, where you'll sail out into the water with an experienced captain and crew to find whales and observe them from a a close, but respectable, distance.
