Check in for your cruise in the afternoon at the beach hut found at Anaeho'omalu Bay. You’ll then board a shuttle which will transport you to the catamaran for your trip. Please note that depending on the tide and wind conditions you may need to walk through knee-deep water to get on board.
Once you climb on board your vessel, you’ll get quick safety briefing from your USCG-certified captain. Then get the fun started by heading to the complimentary open bar to grab a beverage. A variety of drinks, including local beers, tropical cocktails, juices, soft drinks, and wines are available. An included array of crunchy snacks are also available if you get hungry.
As the crew pulls the ship out of the bay and unfurls the sails, your trip will officially be underway. Out in the deeper waters, you’ll keep your eyes peeled for Hawaii’s most massive mammals as they splash and spout from their blowholes. The on board naturalist will be standing by to answer any questions and help explain typical whale behavior. Rest assured that the ship’s crew adhere to all federal guidelines regarding whale protection, and that the boat will never approach closer than 300 feet (90 meters) of the Humpbacks.
After spending close to two hours out on the water, your ship will drop the sails head back to the bay using its motors. You’ll then transfer via shuttle back to the beach to end your trip. Though there’s no guarantee of a whale sighting during your adventure, you can rest easy knowing that you’re sure to have a good time.
