Humans are not the only ones who like to visit Hawaii in the winter. Every year thousands of whales come down from Alaska to Hawaii in December. They give birth and hang out in the warm tropical water for a few months. Then they all head back in March.
Having a clear sunny day, we thought it would be a time to go looking for whales. It’s nice to pack a lunch, grab a couple beers and head out for a day at the beach. We barely got our beach chairs onto the sand before we saw the first one. There’s no mistaking a whale when you see one, they’re big! They like to play and breach, making huge whale belly flops! They’re very silly and a lot of fun to watch. Quite entertaining!
My husband and I ended up seeing quite a few whales sitting on this little beach. It’s just north of Kapaa Beach Park and is nearly always deserted even though it’s in town. I think it’s because you can’t see the beach from the road, people don’t realize it’s there. Be sure to check it out if you’re on Kauai, especially if the whales are here. It’s a perfect place to watch them from.
Thanks for reading my diary! Aloha!
PS The beach is close to the Tamba surf shop if you’d like to pick up a cap like the one I’m wearing.
