Each winter there's an increase in visitors to the islands, Humpback whales, the State of Hawaii's official marine
mammal. From as early as September until as late as May, humpback whales can be seen in the near-shore
waters surrounding the Hawaiian Islands.

A whale watching cruise can be an awe-inspiring experience from the water. Mothers can be seen teaching their
calves to breach, and males can be seen competing with one another in fierce head-to-head battles. The
underwater vocal stylings of male humpback whales can even be heard by divers, snorkelers and boaters. The
thrill of such encounters has fostered a strong love of humpbacks in the islands.
