Kauai Whale Watching Time is Here!!

From December to April, Kohala, the Hawaiian Humpback Whale, makes the annual migration to play and breach in Hawaiian waters.  During this time, you have a great opportunity to see these beautiful creatures in there natural habitat.

A customer staying at Islander at the Beach snapped this photo from our balcony.  There is always a chance to see whale from your Lanai or the beach in front of our condos.  Keep your camera close this time of year, you just might be taking home a memory of a life time.

While out on a cruise with Captain Andy, the whales were dancing around and a Mom had a young calf with her.  It was so thrilling, it was hard to tear yourself away long enough to catch a photo.  This is just small glimpse of what was seen that day.

Captains Andy’s Whale Watching Tours have given many visitors the chance to capture the elegance of these fine whales.  Hawaii has a law that requires a 100 yard minimum zone from the whales to ensure boats don’t get too close to these endangered species, but it is not uncommon for whales to approach crafts on their own, sometimes even swimming under the boats.  Captain Andy’s vessels are equipped with hydrophones which allow for listening to the whale “songs”, which can be heard from more then 20 miles away and can last up to 20 minutes.  I have been on these sails with Captain Andy’s and it was fabulous.  We spotted a lot of whales, it was just a matter if I could be quick enough with the camera, due that I didn’t want to take my eyes off of the whales.

Here are some Kauai Whale Photos from Captain Andy’s
