When Is The Best Time To Go Whale Watching


Whalewatching season runs from June to September, with the most popular time being between July and August. However, whale watching tends to be most successful during the months of April and May. The whales migrate from their breeding grounds in Alaska to warmer waters around Hawaii where they can feed on a rich supply of krill – a small shrimp-like creature that is abundant in these waters. Whaling is also historically linked with moon phases as this is when whales are most likely to give birth or be seen mating at sea – hence why going whale watching will often coincide with full or new moons.
