Gear maintenance:
* Life Vests: Soaked and continuously dunked in a special shampoo specifically branded for cleaning wet suits, which have similar textile properties as life vests. Life Vests are left to dry naturally in the UV warmth of the sun.
* Fins: Soaked and scrubbed in a solution of bleach and liquid detergent, then rinsed in water and laid out in the UV warmth of the sun to dry.
* Masks and Snorkels: Soaked and scrubbed in a solution of bleach and liquid detergent, then rinsed in water. Both are then soaked for at least one minute in our Steramine sterilizing solution and kept inside to dry naturally. Once dry, each set is placed in a biodegradable plastic bag and sealed with heat. This ensures that the masks and snorkel sets are not touched again after the sterilizing process until the next guest tears open the bag for their own use.

West Oahu Whale Watching

Location: West Oahu, Oahu

Come see the Humpback Whales in their natural habitat on the Whale Watch tour! If you plan on visiting Hawaii, we invite you to join us for the most exciting whale watching tour on the remote west shore of Oahu.

We begin as our state of the art 34-foot rigid inflatable boat with our lifeguard certified crew departs from Waianae Boat Harbor and travels along the scenic west coast in search of recently migrated humpback whales.

Take some of the most incredible photographs of your vacation as the humpback whales come to visit you, slapping the water, showing their tale and humpbacks, and spraying with their spouts, and even the incredible full breach. Few people have the opportunity to see these spectacular displays. Passively observing the whales while in the water is one of our goals.

Humpback Whales migrate to the Hawaiian Islands during the winter months Mid-December to March. The humpback whales come to the Hawaiian Islands for the purpose of calving and mating, the warm inshore waters surrounding these islands offer the young whales’ protection from predators as they build up enough body fat for their 3,000-mile journey north.

Males reach 43 feet (14 m) and females 45 feet (15 m) in length and weigh 35 tons, on average. Males produce intricate “songs”, only during the mating season. Whale “songs” are composed of themes, which in turn, are composed of phrases.

These acrobatic animals are known for breaching and slapping the water with their tails and pectoral fins. This type of whale can be found from as far South as South America, as far North as Alaska, in Australia, New Zealand, as well as a number of south pacific islands, but one of the best places to view them up close is in the warm waters of the Hawaiian Islands.

Excursions are led by seasoned island naturalists with years of experience on the Waianae Coast.
