The Whale watching season starts in late November, the peak season is in January to March.
But some whales stay until May before making their way home. There are 2 ways to see these beautiful creatures one by land and one is the sea. The boat tour will give you a chance to see humpback whales, spinner dolphins and turtles.
Also, these tours offer you to see snorkelling in the warm waters and hearing beautiful whale songs, under water sunset.
These tours offer it all, from snorkelling in the warm waters and hearing beautiful whale songs under water. Watch the sunset with a cold mai tai in your hand while humpback whales frolic in the
Those who prefer to stay on land enjoy the vantage points to view the whales without getting wet, Some points where you can easily view whale activities are: Poipu include Shipwreck’s Beach, Makahuena Point, Poipu Beach (fronting the Sheraton Kauai Resort) and Spouting Horn. On the north side of Kauai there is Kilauea Lighthouse where there is whale marine sanctuary.
You will also find interesting watching the Humpback whales using their body to communicate with each other and with ocean creatures. And you can easily distinguish the meaning behind their behaviours while watching them.
- Tail Slap: A whale raises its tail flukes out of the water and slaps it on the water’s surface repeatedly. This is like a warning to other whales.
- Spouts: A whale can stay underwater for 45 minutes before taking a breath. You can easily see the spouts of water blowing.
- Spy hop: Sometimes whales need to see what is happening around them. The head rise helps them to see things happening around them.
- Breach: The most exciting whale behaviour. The whale will use its tail to propel and 40% of its body out of the water and land back on the surface.
The scientific name of the humpback whale is Megaptera novaeangliae. It is one of the larger rorqual species, normally adults length is –16 m (39–52 ft) and weigh about 36,000 kg (79,000 lb). Their body shape is long pectoral fins and a knobbly head. Makes a sound lasting 10 to 20 minutes; its purpose may have a role in mating. Humpback whales migrate up to 25,000 km each year.
We look forward to the arrival of our guests, who seem to know how to enjoy paradise just as much as we do.
