Tis the season for a Hawaii whale watch. I like to call it a “whale sail’. We’ll set sail, on your own private charter. If we find whales, that is a bonus!. 2023 has been an abundant season. Every time I go out, there are whales close by. Usually a mum and a calf.
What type of whales do we see?
Humpbacks are Hawaii’s most famous tourists, making their annual 3,500 mile trip from Alaska to the islands each December through April. They come to the islands to have their young and to mate. We’ll set sail and hope to find these gentle leviathans. Sign up today for you Hawaii whale watch.
Call Sail Blue Hawaii for your private whale watching cruise. While whales are not guaranteed, this is the season for a whale sail. “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.

Have you ever seen the green flash? On your private sunset sail, this may well be what captures your joy the most. There are theories about what makes the green flash. Check them out online. I have seen more than my share of this delicious phenomena on numerous sunset sails.
The other evening my charterer pulled off an especially perfect surprise sunset cruise for his girlfriend. She had no idea she was about to go sailing and had always expressed a desire to be on a private sail boat/ a private boat tour. It was with teary eyes she climbed on board.
Of course, saying “I do” is particularly romantic at sunset. A private yacht, just the two of you and the captain. YES, this is the perfect reason to choose a sunset cruise with Sail Blue Hawaii.
A life celebration/ ash scattering is particularly special in the easy sunset hours. A sunset sail with family and friends will stay in your mind forever as you remember and celebrate your loved one.
Of course, you need no reason at all to choose a Hawaii sunset cruise. It is the best time of a day. Sail out there and enjoy all that Hawaii’s beauty has to offer.

Recently, a grieving family called me to see if it was a possibility to scatter their loved ones ashes at sea in Hawaii. YES, this is a wonderful way to memorialise your special person. There is nothing more healing than being out on the ocean to celebrate this momentous occasion.

Not only were we blessed with a beautiful water day, a mum and calf humpback whale showed up to give an extra blessing. An unexpected whale watching cruise absorbed the sadness of the occasion and the family on board felt truly blessed:
“Dear Capt Gaelyn,
We have all said that his farewell could not have been more perfect even if we had scripted the event. It was so peaceful and perfect for each of us to have our intimate moments with him then let him go. I know that he is now exactly where he wanted to be. That is a huge comfort. We are all re-charging our Aloha spirit for our return to the mainland. You will never know how very much we appreciate how perfectly you aided our final farewell to our Bill. Thank you is inadequate but all we can offer.”
