Humpback whales spotted in Honolulu Harbor

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Chris Kojima was working at Pier 30 Thursday morning.  He was aboard the Young Brothers tug Manuokekai when two humpback whales suddenly surfaced right alongside his tug boat.

"I got blasted a couple times by the spray coming of their nostrils," he said.

Kojima snapped dozens of photographs and shot video of the pair.  An adult or older yearling about forty feet long, and a smaller juvenile humpback were side by side.

"Seems like they were pretty much lost," Kojima said. "They were just doing circles, going up and down for air right in front of our boat all morning."
