You definitely don’t want to miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime whale-watching experience!

Humpback whales travel to the Hawaiian waters every winter not just because Hawaii is the number one vacation destination in the world, but to give birth and mate before heading back to Alaska to eat. Adventure X Ocean Tours takes you to the action wherever it is happening. Guests experience the thrill of encountering these 80,000-pound animals in a close and safe way. From baby whales curiously scouting out the boat to witnessing a triple breach, Adventure X Rafting has seen it all. Leaving out of Puako, we right away enter the nursing grounds of mother humpback whales and their babies. Go out a little further and you may witness a competition pod, a battle between males over females.
