Come aboard Winona to relax and enjoy the Humpback Whales, Hawaii’s State Marine Mammal. The Humpbacks are an endangered species that travel to Hawaii from the North Pacific waters off Alaska each winter to breed.
The Kohala Coast of the Big Island is a Marine Mammal Sanctuary and provides these animals a warm and safe environment to give birth and tend to their young.
It also offers us a unique opportunity to witness a variety of dramatic behaviors, from tail slapping and head lunges, to full breaches out of the water. These spectacular 40-ton visitors are here from December to April.
Cruises are offered seasonally and are an hour and a half long. Light snacks, beer, wine and soft drinks are included.
The whales will provide you with memories to last a lifetime!
