From Breaching to Fluke Slaps!
It is often breathtaking how these humpback whales live their lives in such a gentle way and communicate with one another in so many ways. From breaching to fluke slaps to fluke waves to babies and mothers. it’s always a something amazing to see and hear them out on the ocean. Our Tours include the use of a hydro phone. We lower an underwater mic and you will hear the whale songs piped through s speaker on deck. This is pretty hearts topping for many guests. Sometimes a whale will slowly rise straight up nose first until it’s eyes are above water. This enables these beauties to look directly at the people on the boat. Their eyes are incredible to see and look very similar to a blue human eye. Only their eyes are almost the size of a basketball! This behavior is called a spy hop and is a direct experience between human and whale. From Breaching to Fluke Slaps and beyond!
It is a breathtaking experience you will not soon forget. It is also a wonderful experience to see Maui from an offshore perspective. Haleakala and the West Maui Mountains are so beautiful with the green slopes from the winter rains rising out of the ocean! Another special thing about our whale watching tours is the group size. Our quick ocean rafts are perfect for taking small groups a few steps from the beaten path. From Breaching to Fluke Slaps to the spectacular views, you will not be disappointed! We make it a point to find our own groups of whales and to avoid the groups of whales with vessels already present. Visit www.hawaiioceanrafting.com to book your next adventure!
