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.

I arrived in Dallas on a cloudy afternoon and, luckily, traffic was light as I drove my rental car into the city in just less than 30 minutes. The Hotel Joule was built in the 1920s in the Neo-Gothic style and is a city landmark in the heart of the business district.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella (or “Old City”) is often packed with tourists who wander up and down Las Ramblas spending way too many euros on overpriced paella and sangria. But the border neighborhood of El Raval is just a few steps from the bustle, but worlds away from the exorbitant prices.
