Thar she blows!!!...


Humpback whales arrive from late October and stay until April each year. Whales being mammals breathe air just like all mammals. Humpbacks can hold their breath for up to 45 minutes but usually their dives last from 10 to 15 minutes in length. When they return to the surface they exhale through a blowhole on the top of their heads. These spouts can be seen from miles away and contain enough air to fill a balloon the size of a small truck. Some whales exceed 40 feet in length and weigh over 80,000 pounds! Experience the thrill and fun of seeing them in their natural environment. There are nine indigenous species of whale that live in Hawaii year-round.


Dolphins: There are many species of dolphin of which the Hawaii spinner dolphins are the most plentiful. Their playful and interactive behavior attract people from around the world. Many people visit the dolphins because they believe dolphins possess healing powers!
