Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
The boat can fit more than 40 people, but there are only 24 spots available on this tour. You will have plenty of room to wander around the boat for unobstructed views. You won't miss any of the action in the water!
What You Can Expect
The humpbacks, or kohola, arrive in Hawaii by late December after spending several colder months in Alaska. Learn more about whale migration and other facts as your guide takes you along the Oahu coastline for what’s likely to be a mighty show.
At any moment, you could see a whale perform a dramatic breach, communicate with the slap of the tail, or blow water from its spout. In the unlikely event that you don’t spot any whales on your trip, you get to choose another day for this whale-watching outing that is free of charge.
After two hours on the water, return to the harbor for round-trip transport back to your hotel.
The guys that took on this excursion really knew what they were doing. The weather wasn't great but they could spot the whales and point them out to us in time to see them. What fun we had. Thanks Josh and Dan!
When booking our trip we looked at many different options. We were very excited to find Oahu Whale-Watching Excursions which seemed to be a more intimate setting. Captains Josh and Dan were absolutely fantastic. As soon as we left the harbor we saw whales and dolphins playing in the distance. Josh and Dan were very knowledgeable and just as excited to be there as we were. The smaller boat proved to be a much better experience versus the larger "dinner/whale" boat cruses we have booked in the past. Snacks and drinks were provided. Josh and Dan would get as close as they legally could to the whales and turn the boat off to drift when the whales ventured too close.
This was a very wonderful experience and we would suggest Oahu Whale-Watching Excursion to anyone looking for a more "real" adventure vs the larger cattle call Whale watching tours out there.
