The island of Kauai is the ultimate destination for outdoor enthusiasts looking for a place that provides tropical appeal, captivating cascades, amazing cliffsides and lush rainforests. While it’s a haven for land-lovers, it’s just as intriguing of a destination for those that have a heart for the sea and the many creatures that call it home.

Between the months of December and April, Kauai becomes a landmark in the migratory path of incredible humpback whales, making this scenic destination one of the best places in the world for whale watching. When you’re here and hoping to get up close to one of these majestic creatures, be sure to book a spot on a 3-hour Whale Watch Discovery Raft Tour with Kauai Sea Tours and discover the amazing whale watching in Kauai!

Raft Your Way Through Kauai Excursions

Far from the decks of a large catamaran, this cruise invites guests to hop aboard a secure raft for a more intimate encounter with these incredible creatures while whale watching in Kauai. Tour tickets start at $81.08 and the price includes a selection of soft drinks and appetizers for the trip to make sure your day stays on the savory side of life. Guests meet up at Port Allen Marina and meet their U.S. Coastguard certified captain and crew before heading out into open waters.

This tour is as much about spotting whales as it is learning about their intricate and amazing behaviors. The captain and crew will be quick to offer up insight into why these marine mammals behave the way they do and just where they are headed over the course of their migration. Your tour raft is the perfect place to easily spot whale blows and breaches in what can turn into quite the acrobatic sea show! Guests will have the chance to listen to whale songs with the help of underwater equipment and instruction on behalf of the crew.

Beyond these marine encounters, guests will also enjoy unsurpassed views of the Kauai coastline and commonly find themselves eye to eye with pods of migrating dolphins as well! Diverse, entertaining and educational, this raft-based whale watching tour is a one-of-a-kind experience you won’t want to miss while seeking Kauai excursions.
