Captain Zodiac - Whale Watch

Watching whales from a Zodiac boat is an amazing experience! Zodiac rafts are known as the perfect vessel to observe marine life. You are much closer to marine life, only a few feet off the water, and can watch them from basically an eye level position. Plus, everyone gets a front row seat! Zodiac rafts can also move faster and get into the perfect viewing position quickly.

Every winter, humpback whales migrate to the Hawaiian Islands to mate and give birth. Your naturalist Captain will explain the whales’ behaviors and get as close to them as possible and allowed (adhering to Federal MMPA viewing regulations). You’ll also get to listen to hydrophones relaying the whales’ communication with one another.

Tour Highlights:

  • Watch humpback whales along the Big Island's Kona Coast
  • Chance to see other marine life, including turtles and dolphins
  • See lava tubes, sea caves, blowholes and archways along the rugged shoreline
  • Small group atmosphere allows for a personal and intimate tour
