Private Charters

Book the entire shaka-speed boat & bring up to 6 guests for a 2 hour whale watch charter. Humpback whales visit Hawaii between Decmember & April every year. They migrate from colder waters north to mate & give birth to their young. Join us to see these enormous marine mammals in their natural habitat. Our captains & crew are experts on humpback whale behavior, and our small group sizes make encounters all the better. Offered late December through March for $595.

Pick your launch time- we recommend morning for dolphins & whales, or sunset for epic views of the Big Island & Maui.

How should I tip my crew?

Tipping is common in the sailing and yachting world. Gratuities in appreciation for excellent service are greatly appreciated. The general recommended amount is 20% of your charter fee.
