The season for your private Hawaii whale watch is fast coming to the end. These marvellous leviathans have given us the best season in the last 5 years. No one knows exactly why whales have been fewer in numbers over the last few years. No worries!. We had a fabulous season. And it is not over yet.
Why do humpback whales visit the Hawaiian Islands?
Humpback whales come to our warm waters, from Alaska, to have their babies. That is 3000-odd miles away!. It takes mama 6 weeks to get here. She stays for around six weeks..has her calf, re-mates, then it’s a 6-week passage back with baby to Alaska. All this happens between November and April every year. During that whole long time, mama does not eat, but does milk her calf. When she gets back to Alaska, she is very emaciated. Wow, what a story!
Why don’t whales feed while in Hawaiian waters?
We have no krill. Krill are found further north, in cooler waters. Begs the question…WHY?? Why travel all this way. Humans have their theories, of course, but only the whales know.
