"Riva" is a classic 34 foot Islander Sloop designed and built for the open ocean. She is beautiful, sturdy, comfortable and has plenty of room for six passengers. Reserve a private charter just for your group or family. These charters depart from the newest harbor in the state, Kawaihae Harbor South, conveniently located directly below Puukohola National Historical Site and adjacent to Pua Ka Ilima O' Kawaihae Cultural Surf Park, and only 10 to 15 minutes from all the major resorts of the serene Kohala Coast on the Big Island Hawaii.
Experience the stunning hues of the Kawaihae sunset as it sinks into the deep blue Pacific Ocean, and casts its magical glow on the surrounding mountains of Kohala, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Hualalai all while watching the amazing humpback whales.
Your whale watch is located just minutes from the Kohala Coast resorts, and adjacent to the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary. These conservation waters protect humpback whales and other marine life, and are known for steady tradewinds.
