About this Whale Watching Tour on the Big Island

If you’ve always wanted to go whale watching on the Big Island, you’re in luck! Humpback whales travel to the Hawaiian waters every winter (and not just because Hawaii is the number one vacation destination in the world).

From baby whales curiously scouting out the boat to witnessing a triple breach, Adventure X Boat Tours has seen it all on our Big Island whale watching tours.

Leaving out of Puako, we immediately enter the nursing grounds of mother humpback whales and their babies. Go out a little further and you may witness a competition pod, a battle between males over the female.

The captains and crew are very knowledgeable about these animal’s behavior and will share insightful facts throughout the entire trip.

You definitely don’t want to miss out on this once in a lifetime Hawaii Big Island whale watching experience. Don’t delay. Call today! **We even guarantee whale sightings, or come again…FREE!
