Whale Watching Off North Shore Kauai


Whale watching off North Shore Kauai was at its best today! The sun was shining, the water was warm and the whales were at their most playful! We saw a half dozen breaching just off Anini Beach. Today the sea was unusually calm, like glass, so it was very easy to see the incredible display.

From December to May you will catch sight of our majestic kohola, or humpback whales, off Kauai’s shorelines. Whales travel thousands of miles each year to come to our warm Hawaiian waters to breed and give birth to new calves. When breeding whales get very playful and will repeatedly breach (jump out of the water) and slam their massive tails on the surface creating tremendous displays of water.

There are great observation points for whale watching off North shore Kauai in or near Princeville. Get comfortable and keep your eyes peeled and you can experience incredible whale watching! When vacationing on Kaua’i during the winter months, be sure to plan a whale watching cruise to get a closer look. You won’t be disappointed!
