Humpback whales can grow up to an astounding 52 feet long. Imagine experiencing the movements and beauty of one of these creatures up close! An exciting whale watching in Kauai Hawaii ride aboard a 14 passenger Willard rigid hull inflatable raft is an adrenaline-inducing way to get a closer look at these amazing mammals.
If you will be visiting between December and March, and are wondering what to do in Kauai Hawaii, be sure to take advantage of whale watching season by treating yourself to a 3-Hour Whale Watch Discovery Raft Tour through Kauai Sea Tours. You will cruise along on a 24-foot inflatable raft with an experienced US Coast Guard licensed captain, which provides a more adventurous ride than tours offered on larger boats. These smaller rafts are also able to more easily maneuver closer to the marine life without disturbing them in their natural habitat.
With your camera in hand, you will capture amazing photographs of dolphins leaping nearby, as well as whales slapping their tales and possibly the elusive breech! On this tour, you will have the opportunity to listen to the humpback whales’ song through the underwater hydrophone and learn more about these creatures from your knowledgeable guide. Enjoy pupus (appetizers) such as crackers, cheese, wraps, freshly baked cookies, and beverages onboard as you cruise along Kauai’s sunny south shore and soak up the beautiful scenery while learning more about the vibrant marine life surrounding this stunning island.
