Splash Into the 2014 Whale Season!
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).
We welcome all of you to join us…if you can’t, then be sure to subscribe to this site so you can get all the updates, photos, and videos during this year’s whale season! If you have any questions about this program, leave a comment or contact Pu`ukohola Heiau National Historic Site. Aloha!
