Kailua-Kona, HI, USA
Dolphin and Whale WatchingDolphin- and whale-watching tours are a popular among visitors here, as both spinner and bottlenose dolphins typically congregate and play in its coastal waters and migrating humpback whales can be spotted from December to March (pilot and other whale species are here year-round). As you cruise the coastline, you’ll have a front-row seat to the action. Dolphins may opt to ride the ship’s bow wake, while whales will keep more of a distance. Either way, have your binoculars and cameras ready.
