Swim with the Dolphins
According to the Pacific Whale Foundation, scientists estimate that there are between 17,000 and 20,000 humpback whales in the North Pacific population — and about 60% of those arrive in Hawaii (generally after a two-month, 3,500-mile swim from their Alaskan feeding grounds, beginning in mid-October).
The whales come to Hawaii to mate, give birth and then care for their calves. It is speculated that migrating humpback whales are attracted to the water around Maui, Kahoolawe, Lanai and Molokai because it is relatively shallow and sheltered from high winds.
Whale-Watching Tours usually begin early Dec-thru' mid-May.
