Full description
Board the boat directly from the sand of Kaanapali Beach. Beach loading is perfectly safe and often time adds an element of fun and adventure to the tour. Be sure to wear shorts or pants that you can roll up to your knees.  Your professional marine naturalist guide will share intriguing information and up-to-date facts about the local whale population. As you make your way across the waves, listen to  "Whale Songs" live on the ships' hydrophone. Humpback whales make their way to the warmer waters of the tropics during the winter breeding season, so sightings are very common throughout this time of year. While aboard, enjoy some delicious breakfast or afternoon appetizers while at sea, as well as complimentary cocktails from the open bar.

We saw several whales. Nice pics from the photographer. Good service from the staff. Perfect location from the start since it’s just walking distance from where we stayed. It would have been better if the guide uses a mic or megaphone so everybody can hear clearly what he’s been sharing to the guests about whale infos, etc.
