What To Expect

This 53-foot (16-meter) catamaran has plenty of space to spread out, so find a seat wherever suits you and enjoy the scenery as your boat glides out of the harbor. 

While you cruise south along the coast toward Diamond Head, check out the spread of appetizers like a cheese plate, caramelized onion meatballs and Kalua pork wontons with sweet chili sauce. Cash in your two provided drink tickets for wine, beer or a cocktail from the bar. Additional drinks are available for purchase, and you are welcome to unlimited non-alcoholic beverages.

When the catamaran reaches Diamond Head, the captain will swing the boat around for the best view of the sunset. Watch the sun's light change on the prominent crater that forms Diamond Head, one of Oahu's most famous landmarks. Be sure to bring your camera for spectacular photo ops. Relax and unwind as the sun sinks below the horizon, then enjoy the short ride back to the pier.

Diamond Head State Monument (Pass By)

Hawaii's most recognized landmark. Diamond Head is a volcanic tuff cone on the Hawaiian island of Oʻahu and known to Hawaiians as Lēʻahi. The Hawaiian name is most likely derived from lae plus ʻahi because the shape of the ridgeline resembles the shape of a tuna's dorsal fin

Waikiki Beach (Pass By)

Cruise the beautiful Waikiki coast look for Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles (Honu),Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins (Nai’a), Humpback Whales (Kohola) [in season] When the captain turns around at Diamond Head (Le’ahi), admire the darkening silhouette of the prominent crater — one of Hawaii's most renowned landmarks. The boat pauses here so you can bask in the sunset glow over the sea and look for the elusive ‘green flash’ on the horizon before returning alongside a glittering skyline to Waikiki

Cocktails and Whales
Glenn_B, Jan 2022
Amazing sunset cruise with our family!! The crew was outstanding and friendly. The cocktails were great but the surprise of the evening was a spectacular whale show. We couldn’t believe it!! How lucky we were to see this family of whales. After almost two years of this pandemic, this cruise was just what we needed. Thanks to all who work the cruise. We will definitely recommend to all we know coming to Honolulu. Mahalo!
A real treat!

The crew was great, the bento boxes and drinks were great as well. Very nice, clean boat and they took us all around the harbor.
It wasn’t what we expected.
Mark_S, Dec 2021
Unfortunately getting on and off the boat was very dangerous, especially for seniors. Must be improved.
Must do

We really enjoyed this excursion. Nice boat, fun crew, absolutely beautiful scenery. Although we did not have food and drink it was provided and looked good. Captain Greg and crew made it a very nice cruise. Highly recommend!
We saw a whale!

This cruise was great and it exceeded my expectations. We saw a whale, rainbow and the green flash at sunset! This cruise was a Christmas gift to my family while we were visiting and it was fantastic! For those worried about getting seasick, you don't go that far out into the ocean, and the ride was smooth as silk. A special shout out to the crew: Greg, Natalie and Amanda. They did a great job. The drinks were good, we were perfectly positioned to see a beautiful sunset and the other attendees friendly. A great time was had by all!
