“Places To Visit: Hilton Waikoloa Village”

As temperatures cool off, travelers aren’t the only ones heading to warmer climates — Humpback whales journey to the refreshing waters of Hawaii, and Hilton Waikoloa VIllage offers guests the chance to Sail with the Whales*, Dec.1, 2012 through April 15, 2013, starting at $274/night.

Guests of the Pacific playground experience whales like never before with a whale watching cruise that explores the Kohala Coast and the National Marine Humpback Whale Sanctuary that lies just off the shore of Waikoloa. The Ocean Sport’s whale experts deploy hydrophones so whale watchers can hear the eerily beautiful songs of the humpbacks, and experienced captains maneuver the catamarans for the most spectacular views of the breaching animals. Cruises run daily at 8 a.m., 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

To encourage the preservation of the majestic mammals, Hilton Waikoloa Village donates proceeds of their in-room toy dolphins, about $10,000 each year, to benefit the Pacific Marine Life Foundation.

* Minimum three-night stay and three-day advance booking required. Cruise reservation can be made ahead of time or upon arrival at hotel ext. 1200.
