The warm and shallow waters surrounding the Hawaiian Islands are a favorite destination for koholā, or humpback whales. Scientists estimate that two-thirds of the entire North Pacific humpback whale population return to Hawaiʻi to breed, calve and nurse their young. They race more than 3,000 miles from the Gulf of Alaska to Hawaiʻi, then stay for a lengthy vacation, frolicking just off our shores and delighting spectators from December through May.
Adult males range from 40 to 52 feet and can weigh up to 45 tons. Despite their size, humpback whales are graceful acrobats. Keep your eye on the ocean and you might see one breach, propelling up to 40 percent of its body out of the water and landing on its side with a spectacular splash.
Cost of this optional whale watching tour to see the magnificent humpback whales and experience Honolulu’s famous sunset with an ocean view is $123.00 per person.

Cost of this optional optional day tour to the Dole Plantation and mini train ride through the pineapple fields, tour the nature reserve of Kualoa Ranch, film location of Jurassic Park, and Haleiwa Town, the surf capital of the world is $245.00 per person.

Bobbie Dewees , Springfield, VA- "I thought the Route 66 trip was the BEST bus-based guided tour I had ever taken. The bus was not crowded, the leader and driver were both exceptional. I was most pleased that the agenda had enough wiggle-room that we could go off script and see some of the kitchy Route 66 sights which is what I was expecting."
Susan Tischler , Woodstock, GA- "My goal was to see more of America and this trip met that goal. The experience was Extraordinary!"
Don Chudzy , Calgary, Canada- "The tour met all of my expectations. It had the proper level of structure combined with the flexibility to react to situations as they arose. The tour did cover a great distance but as the weather was outstanding, there was always something to see and enjoy. Rest stops to eat and stretch were never a problem and made the days go by quickly. Hotels were excellent as was the transportation. The driver had very good knowledge of the areas and was entertaining."
