Blue Sea Cruises - Whale Watch & Dolphin Adventure
During this special time of year, December to Early April, Humpback Whales come to mate and give birth in the calm waters of Kona. There is no better way to see them than with Kona’s year round marine mammal excursion experts aboard the custom 46ft power catamaran “Makai”.
Board the Makai for a 3-hour journey of discovery and adventure. Relax on the upper deck or the main deck in fully shaded comfort as you cruise the scenic Kona Coast. Shore spotters will guide the Makai to the best Whale viewing areas, their naturalist and crew will entertain you with historical facts and information on the many points of interest along the way and the animals encountered. Have your camera ready for your first whale encounter as you watch these amazing animals up close. Some of the activities you may see are breeching, spy hopping, pectoral fin slapping, tail slapping, mating behavior and mothers caring for their young. Listen to the whale songs produced by these majestic mammals through their underwater hydrophone.
Be sure to watch for the local spinner dolphins that are regular companions on most of our trips.
Guaranteed Humpback Whale sightings or return again free.
Complimentary refreshments are available and a limited cash bar throughout the tour. Beer, Wine and Well drinks $5 each.
