Every winter season, about 10,000 humpback whales migrate between Hawai’i and Alaska, giving birth in the former. It’s the perfect time for intrepid travelers to get up close and personal with these magnificent animals via sustainable tours that promise big adventures for tourists and no harm to the animals.
And You Creations is an Oahu tour operator t offering whale-watching tours for the first time this season, providing peak whale watching through March.
“Whale season is the boat crew’s favorite time of year,” said Kaina Neuman, general manager, Dolphins and You. “We are very fortunate to be able to welcome humpback whales back home to Hawai’ian waters.”
Dolphins and You, part of the And You Creations family, previously offered dolphin experiences, but And You Creations now offers the new whale-watching tours thanks to a recent investment in a new ocean vessel, which the brand says increased passenger capacity by double. The new boat has two decks perfect for watching marine life from a safe distance. The boat, which will be used for the whale-watching experiences, also allows guests to hear whale and dolphin sounds from underneath the water’s surface, as it employs hydrophone technology. In-time whale songs are also broadcast over the boat’s surround-sound speaker system.
In addition to the exciting whale watching, guests also enjoy a few other amenities during the whale watching tours, such as hula performances, taro bun burger lunches and water activities.
Since this is And You Creations’ first year offering the whale-watching tours during Hawai’i’s whale watching season, you can book a tour for $20 less than normal through March 31, for a price of $109 per adult, or $79 per child.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
