Whale Watching (December thru March)

Come Whale Watching with SunLight On Water and see the Humpback Whales, the most majestic creatures on earth. Fully grown, they can be 40-45 feet long, and weigh 80,000 pounds! The Hawaiian Island chain constitutes one of the world's most important habitats for the endangered North Pacific Humpback Whale and offers some of the best Whale watching in the world. Hawaii is the only place in the U.S. where Humpbacks breed, calve, and nurse their young. Scientists estimate that two-thirds of the entire North Pacific population (approximately 4,000-5,000 Whales) migrate to Hawaiian waters each winter, where boats like ours carefully navigate amongst them providing unrivaled Whale watching opportunities. Our on-board naturalist will share with you many interesting facts about the Whales.
