Dolphin and Whale Watching Tours

Kauai is home to various marine life, including dolphins and whales. These tours take you out on the water to see these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.

Hawaiian waters are the perfect place for Humpback Whales to give birth and find mates. From November to May, hundreds of these majestic creatures migrate from Alaska in search of a warm and safe home in the shallow coastal waters surrounding the island of Kauai. Visitors on Kauai during prime whale season will have the opportunity of a lifetime.

Depending on your luck, you may also get to see a few other species of whales.
