Welcome back the humpback whales at a community celebration taking place from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday (Jan. 26) at Turtle Bay Resort.

Besides scientists' lectures, there will be a whale observation station, education booths, children's activities, naturalist-led wildlife walks and hula by local keiki.

The "Welcome Back the Whales" celebration is sponsored by the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary in partnership with the North Shore Ocean Education Coalition.

The event is free and open to the public, and a chance for all who love humpback whales to learn more about these magnificent creatures.
