Whale Encounters in Kona, Hawaii

It’s whale season in Hawai‘i, that time of year when the humpbacks migrate from Alaska to our warm waters to breed and give birth. Incredible whale sightings are happening all up and down the Big Island’s leeward coast — from Kealakekua Bay in South Kona, along the coast of Kailua-Kona, up the Kohala Coast, off the shores of Kawaihae and beyond.

Holualoa Inn is located just a short drive to ocean, where visitors can view whales from the comfort of the shoreline or from whale-watching vessels that depart daily out of Honokohau Harbor or Kailua Pier. Our Holualoa Inn Ohana can give you helpful tips and advice about whale watching on the Big Island.
