Sperm Whale Sightings

Cascadia Research Collective (CRC) has been undertaking surveys for odontocetes in Hawaiian waters since 2000. Sperm whales are primarily found offshore in deep waters around the main Hawaiian Islands, and are likely part of a larger central Pacific population.

Dr. Joseph Mobley of the Marine Mammal Research Consultants (MMRC) led aerial surveys for cetaceans in Hawaiian waters from 1993-2003.
