What to Expect From a Whale Watching Tour in Hawaii: A First-Timer’s Guide
Maui is home to one of the most stunning natural sights on Earth every winter. A large number of kohola (or whales known as humpbacks) travel across oceans that lie between Alaska and the northern Pacific in order to access the shallow and warm water channels which run across Maui, Molokai and Kaho’lawe. It is a lengthy trip that covers hundreds of kilometers. They participate in the oceanic custom of giving birth to their newborns and taking care of their babies. They are especially plentiful in the months of January and March. The locals make fun of calling the process “whale soup”.
The first day of December in Maui, the “whale season” was rapidly coming to. I was able to see myself floating on the soft sands of Polo Beach. This beach is situated right just in front of the Wailea’s Fairmont Kea Lani resort. The stunning sight of whales that humpback the humpbacks or kama’ain in Hawaiian tradition, was something that I was able to reminisce about the bond that we are able to share with nature. When they dance, sing and interact with each other off the coast and you feel the power of mythology that lies in the kohola. It symbolizes the strength, power and unity.
When I was trapped for many days to the Kilohana room with views of the ocean and ocean views, I started to look at the skies in hopes of being able to see whales. Within a few minutes, I heard a dim murmur that was an indication of whales’ exhale. Then, within a few minutes I saw a fast speeding tail with pectoral fins and an elongated swoop that broke the top of the. To control my exuberance, I shouted “Whale!” I said “whale!” to my friends in the pool who were focused on watching the large turtle swimming through. The event culminated in a spectacular break and arching leap.
The beginning of Maui’s whale watching season has been a huge achievement. There are numerous ways to watch whales. This includes boat tours and kayaking trips, guided kayaking excursions and other terrestrial locations on Maui’s west and south coastlines. In addition, there are many oceanfront luxury hotels, like those at the Westin Maui Hokupa’a Wing, Sheraton Maui Moana wings, the Kilohana Villas of Fairmont Kea Lani and suites. The balconies of these hotels provide an ideal vantage point from which to observe this stunning display of the natural world.
