Humpback Whale season is December – March for the island of Kauai!

Join us for a fun adventure as we go whale watching along Kauai’s south shore to find the gentle giants of the sea. This popular Humpback Whale watching tour is featured during the height of Hawaii’s whale season (December – March) and is a favorite among wildlife enthusiasts. Be sure to bring your camera!

Every year, hundreds of Humpback Whales migrate from the cool waters of Alaska to the warm safe waters of Hawaii to have their babies and find their mates. During this fascinating voyage, you’ll have the opportunity to see baby whales experience their first few weeks of life and watch as adult Humpback Whales breach the water. Come see these majestic giants of the sea for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

All of our tours during this time of year have a good chance of seeing Humpback Whales, but the tours listed below are dedicated to finding whales. They are also equipped with hydrophones so you can hear the Whales sing! Whale songs are an important part of Hawaii’s history, with legends stating that whale songs helped guide the first Polynesians to Hawaii. Our whale watching tours are fun for the whole family and include complimentary treats and drinks.

Great Whale Watch!

What an awesome time we had on our whale watch! We saw a lot of humpback whales, including a mother and baby, which was the highlight of the trip! We followed (at a safe distance) the mother and baby as they cruised along, also watching bottlenose dolphins swim alongside the whales. Amazing! Also a few breaches and a bunch of tails coming up and out of the water. The crew was great at finding them! It took a while to find the whales, they had to go a little further than they usually go apparently, but we eventually found them and it was worth the wait! It was a bit of a long ride back on some rough waves, but our kids loved the adventure! The captain and crew were great, good cocktails along the way and good tunes playing the whole time. Highly recommend Kauai Sea Tours and this trip especially!

Great experience, lots of whales!!

We had a fantastic trip with Amber, Josh and Justin!! They found us a pod of 4 beautiful humpbacks and we got a bunch of great views of those amazing animals. We went into the wind which made it a little bit wet (so bring a rain layer) but they did a fantastic job and the tour was super informative. Highly recommend this crew!!!
