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.
Before this season is over, call Sail Blue Hawaii for your private whale sail. We’ll set sail in beautiful tradewinds and enjoy the thrill of seeing humpbacks up close and personal as we sail. How better to spend a winter’s day?

and it is thrilling to sail with the awesome beauty of rainbows all around us. But, you say, where there are rainbows, there is rain. Not over Sail Blue Hawaii.
How can that be? The mountains catch the clouds, giving us blue skies while we are sailing the azure blue Pacific. It is thrilling and never tiresome.
In the case of inclement weather (Captain’s call; day of…please put the weather app/ forecast away while you are on vacation. They are very general and very misleading and don’t consider our microclimates. It’s always raining somewhere in Hawaii but seldom on Sail Blue Hawaii. I have you covered..I don’t want to be out in nasty weather either!.) every attempt will be made to re-schedule your charter. If this is not possible, there is no booking or cancellation fee.

She is a US Coast Guard approved vessel, perfect for any kind of Hawaii sailing. Whether it’s an intimate sunset sail for two, a sailing afternoon with family and friends, whale watching, entertaining business colleagues, saying “I do”, or an overnight/inter island adventure; (but that makes 6 best ideas…and I could keep going:-); the experience will most probably be the highlight of your Hawaii vacation.
When is the best time to go sailing in Hawaii?
Because this is custom sailing, we can sail any time of day you want and whatever length of time you wish. Our islands are most consistently graced with trade winds so any time of day is a good time to go sailing…✨SUNRISE, morning, afternoon, SUNSET.✨ It is all good.
“Kaikiwi” sails from Oahu’s south (protected) shore, not far from Waikiki, past beautiful coastline in the cobalt blue blue waters of our Pacific. Wildlife such as green sea turtles, “honu”, dolphins, “nai’a”, humpback whales, “kohola” (in winter season only), and flying fish, “malolo” are some of the critters we may see as we sail. Beautiful views of Oahu, Diamond Head and, on clear days, far in the distance, Molokai and Lanai can sometimes be seen. Please understand this is not “destination” sailing. “Destination” is sailing.
