(ko-ho-la) “HUMPBACK WHALE”
Visibility from the Paa Dunes makes this area ideal for watching the endangered Humpback Whales from November through March as they migrate back to the islands from Alaska. The warm, shallow waters around the islands are one of the world’s premiere Humpback Whale habitats, and the only place in the U.S. where Humpbacks reproduce. An estimated two-thirds of the North Pacific Humpback Whale population migrate to Hawaii every year to engage in breeding, calving and nursing.
