Moving Your Pet To Hawaii

Hawaii is a very beautiful and desirable place to live, thus many people move or relocate to the state every single day.

Are you a pet owner who is contemplating moving to Hawaii and worried about how to get your pet(s) to come with you?

Over the years, the rules and laws of bringing your pets into Hawaii has become less stressful so long as you have your timing and all of your documents aligned. Here at Home Watch Hawaii, we want to help you get prepared.

Below is a checklist that outlines the details on what to do to get your furry children to Hawaii.

Ocean Safety

The beauty of Hawaii’s ocean waters plays a large role in the appeal of this amazing island chain.

Oftentimes the water looks calm and safe, but beneath the spectacular scenery, the ocean can also be extremely unpredictable and dangerous.

Each island is uniquely beautiful in its own right, but also comes with its own unique safety measures. Here at Home Watch Hawaii, we want to help you get prepared.

No matter what island you are visiting, here are a few basics to keep you and your loved ones safe while still being able to enjoy the incredible beaches of Hawaii.

Humpback Whales

Humpback whales are common visitors to the Hawaiian Islands each year. The first whales are typically spotted in November with the last whales usually seen in late April into early May (February being the “best” time to spot them).

Humpback Whales leave the icy waters of Alaska during the fall season for warmer waters to mate, give birth, and nurture their calves. Not only does Hawaii offer warmer waters, but a variety of ocean depths and a lack of natural predators as well.
