Aloha, Friends!
Our wonderful island is focusing on keeping safe during the Coronavirus outbreak. COVID-19 is impacting many of our local businesses, including KONAWEB, but we are happy to be onboard with the required preventive measures. We will not be charging our advertisers until personal movement and travel are deemed safe.
We know that many of you are "addicted" to the KONAWEB live webcam at Kailua Bay, and use the Big Island Forum for current info. We will keep them up and running for you! The popular Big Island Calendar of Events will be on hold through June, at least.
Keep Hawai'i in your hearts, and we will LOVE to see you when the time is right!   -Konabob and Shirley
Those of you who are in a position to do so, may to help keep KONAWEB online.

In response to 143850: Whale Watching, posted by Ellen M on Friday, 13 March 2020, at 6:51 p.m.


Aloha! Here is a link that looks like the 100 yard distance applies to "all ocean users" however, the heading is: Guidelines for Whale Protection and Human Safety
https://hawaiihumpbackwhale.noaa.gov/explore/whale_guidelines.html

A bit lower on the page states: Follow federal regulations that prohibit approaching (by any means) within 100 yards (90 m) when on or in the water, and 1,000 feet (300 m) when operating an aircraft. These regulations apply to all ocean users throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Hope this helps
