Embark on Kauai’s Ultimate SOUTH SIDE Whale & Dolphin Zodiac Boat Adventure – A Spectacle of Nature Awaiting Your Discovery!

Available Seasonally: November – March Each Year.

Experience the Magic with Kauai’s Premier Whale Watching Excursions

Set forth on an unparalleled adventure with our Whale & Dolphin Zodiac Boat Adventure, exclusively during the prime whale-watching season from late November/early December to March. Be part of a select few to witness the grandeur of the North Pacific Humpback whales, affectionately known as the ocean’s “gentle giants,” as they journey from the cool Alaskan seas to the welcoming Hawaiian waters.

A Sojourn with the Sea’s Titans

Marvel at these majestic creatures as they navigate an epic 3,000-mile voyage to their Hawaiian breeding sanctuaries, a testament to the awe-inspiring power of nature. With each whale weighing up to 40 tons, their presence is a humbling reminder of the wonders our planet holds.

Why Our Zodiac Boat Adventure Stands Out

  • Adventure Like No Other: Venture up to 30 miles along Kauai’s southern shores for an adventure that transcends mere sightseeing, offering a dynamic engagement with the wonders of the deep.
  • Safe Yet Intimate Encounters: Our Zodiac boats, known for their agility, promise an up-close (following strict safety guidelines and regulations for protection of marine life) and personal experience with the splendor of the sea, bringing the magic of whale watching to life.
  • Exclusive Offerings: Kauai Z Tours is the only company that launches Whale Watching Adventures from Poipu, providing a unique perspective from Kauai’s South Side.
  • Vacation Highlight: Perfect for families and thrill-seekers alike, our tours create lasting memories and stories that will captivate for generations.

Whale Watching, Not Whale Seeing: Embrace the Adventure!

Our SOUTH SIDE Whale Watching Tours offer more than just a chance to see whales; they are an invitation to immerse yourself in the unpredictability and grandeur of nature. It’s important to note that we call it “whale watching” and not “whale seeing” for a reason. The ocean is a vast and untamed wilderness, and while our experienced crew does their utmost to provide sightings of these magnificent creatures, their presence cannot be guaranteed. The journey, with its potential for surprises and spontaneous marvels, is what makes each tour a unique and thrilling experience. Our Captains and Crew will work diligently to find the whales and provide a top notch experience for you!

Important Tour Requirements:

  • Adventure, Not Leisure: Be prepared for an adventure; our Zodiac boats offer a dynamic experience, not a leisurely cruise.
  • Age Limitation: Participants must be at least 5 years old to join the adventure.
  • Safety First: For safety reasons, pregnant individuals and those with significant health concerns, such as back, neck, hip issues, chronic joint problems, or recent surgeries, are advised not to participate.
  • Location Note: This tour explores the southern coast of Kauai and does not venture to the Napali Coast.
  • Activity Focus: The tour is dedicated to whale watching and does not include snorkeling.
  • Self-Transportation: Guests are responsible for their own transportation to and from the departure location included in the detailed confirmation email.
