Whales can be seen from the shore or from whale watching boats, and are easily located when they spout (exhaling on the ocean surface), fluke, spy hop (spin vertically into the air), and breach.
Lastly, male humpback whales sing songs in a behavior possibly related to mating. These songs can be heard quite well when scuba diving or free diving. You can hear it a bit when snorkeling but to hear it better, hold your breath and dive about 10 feet. It's awesome!
See my travelogue on whalewatching for more pics.
The whales are gone from May to November so if you want to catch the whales be sure to visit during the whale season of December to April. January through March are peak seasons.
There are many whale watching charters available. We sailed with Trilogy on the Trilogy IV (awesome catamaran). We liked them a lot and had some great sightings. Alas, my camera was too slow for good pictures! Keep your options open with the whale watching tours. There are many and they are all reputable and knowlegdeable. Pacific Whale Foundation is another good one. Have fun and enjoy an experience that is beyond words.
