Guaranteed Humpback Whale sightings or return again free. Naturalist Narration of Whale encounters and additional information on humpback whales and other Kona marine mammals. Take part in the Kona Cetacean Research Program offered to observers on board each trip. Blue Sea Cruises is working together with local authorities to gather updated information on Spinner Dolphins behavious and numbers, Humpback whale numbers and identity markings.
Offer 360 degree views aboard the Spirit of Kona, a 150 passenger vessel weighing 78 gross tons equipped with 2 large 8’ glass bottom wells. This wide heavy platform makes for a comfortable and stable ride. Its slower cruising speed not only saves on fuel consumption but allows for more safety for those marine animals that are subject to boat strikes. With mens and womens toilets, premium bar and buffet station, and hydrophone and speaker system, the Spirit is a fabulous boat for catching and learning about the incredible humpback whales during their seasonal visit to the Big Island.
Complimentary refreshments and snacks are available and a limited cash bar throughout the tour. Beer, Wine and Well drinks $5 each.
Blue Sea Cruises operates directly from the Kailua Pier across from the King Kamehameha Hotel.

Or as you come down Palani Road turn left at the second stoplight onto Kuakini and go south about a block for the free public parking entrance on your right. This is one street above the coastal drive of Alii. There are sidewalks leading down in-between the shops. You will see the pier in the bay as you walk on Alii.
Walk along Alii and go past the chain gate at the end of the pier. Walk out on the pier to find your Blue Sea Cruise’s Vessel for check in.
