Every year humpback whales make a long journey from Alaska to the warm waters of the Hawaiian Islands to mate and give birth. Didn't they pick the ideal location?! You can usually spot these amazing creatures from December through April. This year they decided to vacation early! We all love an early vacation!
The whales can put on quite a show! Breaching high up out of the water, slapping their tails and tall blowhole spouts! They're exciting to watch...you'll never forget it!
Or walk out the 200 yard path from the condo to Waiohai beach and watch from there. You could spend an afternoon just relaxing and watching these awesome animals. It never ceases to amaze me how far these huge 40 ton whales can propel themselves out of the water!
Another popular way to see the whales is by taking a boat tour. We've never taken a tour ourselves, though I'd love to one day. People rave about them! I dug around on the internet and did some research for you. The highest rated boat tours are from Captain Andy's. The price for a tour on their website ranged from $69-$159 for each adult, you do need to book at least 3 days in advance to get these discounted prices .http://www.napali.com for more information.
Thanks for reading my diary! As always, I welcome all comments and questions.
Have a great day friends!
