Humpback Whale watches are seasonal from December 15th – April 15th. These majestic beauties come to Hawaii to make and have babies. They are one of the most acrobatic of the Great Whales and have surface displays that go on day and night. So there is no “best” time to go out and view them unless you are a Photographer and prefer the Morning or Sunset light. All operators have Naturalist on board and hydrophones to listen to the whales singing.
