Imagine being out on the open ocean, accompanied by the tranquil sound of water splashing on the side of the boat, and the sight of luscious, green mountains in the distance. That’s when you hear a loud splash in the water. You look over the water and see a giant flipper fin, the kind that you thought you would only see in movies or photos. Whale watching is a truly breathtaking experience, and you’ll find a newfound love for the giants of the big blue.

Wild Side Hawaii

For a life-changing whale watching experience, book a whale watching tour with Wild Side Hawaii. They offer eco-friendly whale watching cruises, and have been named one of the Top Five American Whale Watching Tours by a CBS affiliate. 

Humpback whales travel to the Waianae coast to give birth, and it’s no wonder why! The waters are warm, but it’s also a stunning area in general!

There are nearly 20 species of whales that make regular appearances in our area. Be on the lookout for sperm whales, pygmy whales, and orcas! It’s very likely to find dolphins on the Waianae coast as well. The Wild Side crew knows where the wild things are!

Ocean Joy Cruises

Venture out to sea on a catamaran with Ocean Joy Cruises. Choose from several different cruises, including morning, afternoon, or snorkeling trips. The day begins as you travel the Waianae coast from Ko’Olina Marina. Enjoy a hot, Hawaiian buffet on the gorgeous catamaran to enhance your ocean adventure.

Ocean Joy offers a dolphin or whale sighting guarantee when you book their Morning Calm and Afternoon Adventure cruises. You can come back for another tour if you don’t spot any dolphins or whales.
