The Wild & Wonderful Whale Regatta is like a “rubber ducky” race, except with little whales on a fast-moving watercourse. You can enter one or more whales to race in your name (or as a gift entry) for a chance to win fabulous prizes. The Wild & Wonderful Whale Regatta will take place on February 2, 2019 at the Run & Walk for Whales. You don’t have to be present to win. Winners will be notified by mail or phone before April 1, 2019.

All entries must be received by January 26, 2019.

If your whale is the Grand Prize winner, you’ll receive free roundtrip airfare for 2 to Maui from the U.S. mainland or Canada (any major city), Australia (Sydney or Brisbane), or New Zealand (Auckland). Hawaii residents can choose a trip for 2 to the mainland or a trip for 4 to a neighbor island. There are other great prizes for second and third place winners.


We will also accept entries on February 2 (ONLY) at the Run & Walk for Whales for another special race to win a chance to Name a Whale from Pacific WhaleFoundation's photo-ID catalog ($1,000 value). Day-of entries for this special race will close at 9:15 am on February 2.

Congratulations to 2018 winners!

Grand Prize: Tonya Krizenesky, Grapevine, TX
2nd Place: Tom BaJorek, Pittburgh, PA
3rd Place: Radine Williams Boss, Anchorage, AK
