Humpback whales routinely frequent O‘ahu waters during their Hawaii stay from October to March. Once in the shallow waters, they engage in mating behaviors and give birth to massive calves. Fortunately for whale-watchers, humpback whales like to congregate in the waters from Makapu‘u to Koko Head, and swim very close to shore as they pass by.
