Wake Up With the Whales Cruise

Wake up for a morning whale-watching cruise when the ocean is most likely to be calm and conditions ideal for spotting humpback whales. Accompanied by an experienced captain and a naturist guide, set out from Anaeho'omalu Bay to look for humpback whales from the decks of the stable catamaran. Your crew serves up hot Kona coffee, tropical juices and snacks for you to enjoy on board. Whale sightings are guaranteed — if your guide doesn’t spot whales, you get to come back for a complimentary tour.

Captain Miranda was super friendly and awesome. Very comfortable ride with large enough glass windows for excellent viewing. Just as good as snorkeling for young children who aren't great swimmers yet.
