About this activity
Watch and enjoy these gentle giants in their own natural environment. See humpback whales (seasonal), spinner dolphins, Hawaiian green sea turtles, indigenous marine life and pristine coral reefs. Learn about their unique behavior and have fun doing it. Humpback whale sightings are common in Hawaii from December through May each year. About 60 percent of the North Pacific humpback whale population migrates to Hawaiian waters where they mate, give birth to and nurse their young. North Pacific Humpback whales migrate nearly 7,000 miles each year between Alaska in the summer and Hawaii in the winter. Adult females begin to reproduce when they reach ten years of age and have one baby (called a calf) per year. The gestation period lasts between 10-12 months, after that, a calf is born which usually measures about 12 feet long. Weighing about 3,000 pounds, humpback whale calves are born beneath the water and need to be pushed to the surface by their mothers so they can take their first breath of air. Calves stay very close to their mothers for the first year as they feed on their mother's milk and learn to swim. A Calf will consume about 50 gallons of milk per day and grow by about 100 pounds a day. A humpback whale's tail (called a fluke) averages fifteen feet across and has distinct white and black markings on the underside. These unique markings help scientists identify individual whales, track their movements and record their numbers.
