The whales that visit the Hawaiian Islands every year attract a lot of visitors from all over the world. These gentle giants have been visiting Hawaii for hundreds of years. They used to be hunted back when the whaling industry was at its peak. Back then, whales were essential for communities. Most of their parts were used for daily living. The fat or the blubber under their skin was used to make oil that was used as fuel for lamps and wax for candles. They were also used in the manufacturing of soap. The bones or Baleen was used for common implements in 19th-century households. The meat was also part of the diet of many people back then. Now they are honorary members of the Hawaiian Ohana.
