Kauai Whale Watching Tours :: Thar She Blows!
Awesome day today. We saw our first whale of the season. As we approached, it leaped out of the water in a full breach. This was followed by a series of loud tail slaps. Even over 100 yards distance we could hear its massive fluke slapping down on the water. This lone male whale stayed in one spot as it sounded below the water in search for any other whales in the area. Being one of the first whales to visit Kauai this season, it may have been feeling lonely after it’s 3,000 mile journey over to the Islands.
The surprises didn’t end there…..we ran into a rare sighting of Bottlenose dolphins. These dolphins are much larger than their cousins the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphin.
