Oahu Whale Watching Tours

Whale watching cruises are some of the most popular and fun things to do in Hawaii’s whale season, which runs from December through April. During this time literally thousands of Pacific humpback whales make their journey from the cold waters off Alaska to Hawaii’s warm waters to mate, breed and raise their young.

Go on a whale watching cruise to see these majestic animals. Oahu whale watching cruises depart from either Honolulu Harbor or Haleiwa Harbor on the island’s north shore. Some of these cruises feature hydrophones, so you can listen to the whales communicating with each other. Expert naturalists are on board who will share interesting facts about the whales, and some whale watch cruises also include a delicious lunch.
