Hawaii Whale Watching Tours

Whale watching cruises are some of the most popular things to do in Hawaii’s whale season, which runs from December through April. During these winter months thousands of Pacific humpback whales migrate from their summer feedings grounds in the waters off Alaska to the warm Hawaiian waters to mate and nurse their young.

A whale watching cruise allows you to see these majestic mammals up close. Whale watching tours are offered on the four main Hawaiian Islands of Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island. Some of the vessels are equipped with 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.

Hawaii Discount offers the best whale watching cruises in Hawaii at discounted rates. Make your selection from these exciting Hawaii whale watch tours below.
