‘Tis the season for whale watching in the Hawaiian islands!  Every winter humpback whales make the treacherous journey from Alaska to the warm waters surrounding Hawaii and are usually spotted off the coast between the months of January and April.  It’s one of the most popular activities around the islands, and several tours are offering special rates for whale watchers this season.

The Star of Honolulu, Starlet, and Spirit of Lahaina are featuring some great deals for families looking to spot these beautiful sea creatures.  These boats leave from the shores of Oahu and Maui and set out to sea, guaranteeing sight of whales or your money back!

In addition to that, the Oahu boats are offering a fantastic child-free rates for families.  Accompanied by an adult, a child can get the experience of a lifetime for free.  Adult ticket prices for whale watching are $56, which includes lunch ($40 not including lunch).

Both the Star of Honolulu and Spirit of Lahaina ships offer romantic sunset and show cruises if evening journeys on the water are more your thing.  The Star of Honolulu leaves from the Aloha Tower Harbor, and the Spirit of Lahaina leaves from Lahaina Harbor.

Regardless of what you do on the islands, winter and early spring are the seasons to set out on the Pacific Ocean with loved ones to experience all that Hawaii has to offer, and whale watching is the best occasion to do it!
