Tours, trips, holidays, travelling and vacation…these are few words that bring smile to our faces. We always long for breaks from our busy schedules. We desire to go to some quiet and peaceful place, where there is no traffic and noise and pollution. Cherry on the top would be you could spend you days lazing around in nature’s lap. Hence, Kohala tours bring you Whale watching tours. Enjoy Humpback Whales in Hawaii on intimate Big Island whale watching tour. Witness Humpback whales in non-crowded small groups with informative naturalists as well as seasoned skippers.


Below mentioned are some facts regarding Humpbacks whales:

    Blow – the most common way to spot a whale, you can see the spray as whales surface to breathe
    Head rise / Spy hop – whale pokes head out of water vertically
    Tail slap – whale slaps its huge fluke (tail) against the water surface
    Flipper slap/ Pec slap – when whales slap the water with flippers / pecs
    Head lunge – a lunging forward motion during a spy hop.
    Peduncle slap – or the “tail slap on speed”. More spectacular because a larger part of the whale is exposed.
    Fluke up dive – the Tail exposed as whale dives(3-10 minute down time)
    Breaching – the holy grail of Whale Watching, amazing moment when whale propels out of the water
   Occasionally whales swim on their backs with both flippers in the air
