The island state of Hawai’i is home to one of the world’s most important humpback whale migration routes and sea turtle habitats. Situated within the shallow, warm waters surrounding the main Hawaiian Islands, the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary aims to protect these imperiled animals. On this service excursion, you will be participating in sea turtle and research and rescue projects to help local biologists better understand the population distribution of these animals as well as discover the other abundant marine life and ecosystems that comprise this beautiful archipelago.
