Splash Into the 2014 Whale Season!

December 5, 2013

Grab your binoculars and cameras and “Splash Into 2014″ at Pu`ukohola Heiau National Historic Site on December 20!

The Humpback Whales are arriving in Hawaii and it’s time for the annual “Humpback Whale Season Kick-off Event” at Pu`ukohola Heiau National Historic Site!

During whale season (December to April), the amazing volunteers from the Hawaii National Marine Sanctuary Foundation will be offering FREE whale watches at the park. To begin the 2014 whale season this year, we are planning a special event for the morning of Friday, December 20.

From 9:00am-12:00pm, you can take part in the season’s first whale watch. Enjoy watching these awesome creatures while learning all about them!

At 10:30am, the Foundation will be offering a special program about humpback whales and how the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary is helping to ensure that humpback whales continue their recovery from the brink of extinction.

Regularly scheduled whale watches will then be offered at the park  every Friday (9:00am-12:00pm) from December 27 to March 28 (may be extended into April depending on amount of whale activity).

    I went on this whale watch at the park several years and ago and my family and I had the time of our lives. It’s much different than the whale watches in Massachusetts. I’d recommend anyone try this out! So cool.
