What You Can Expect

Oahu Catamaran Cruise: Wildlife, Snorkeling and Hawaiian Buffet

Your captain will find the best snorkeling spot for you to enjoy an hour of snorkeling

Following pickup at select Waikiki hotels, board a comfortable, climate-controlled vehicle for transportation to the marina. Choose from three convenient departure times for this activity.

Board the 61-foot (18.5-meter) catamaran and meet your friendly crew. Find a seat and relax as your boat leaves the marina, gliding north from Ko Olina along the Oahu's western coast. Keep an eye out for whales, dolphins, green sea turtles and flying fish. If you spot some of these marine creatures, your captain will stop the boat a respectful distance away so everyone can get a good look. Use this time to ask your seasoned crew about Hawaii's wildlife and hear legends of the Waianae Coast.


Head for a secret snorkeling spot, where you'll receive a short safety briefing and all the necessary equipment. Don your mask, snorkel and flippers and jump in, marveling at the underwater world around you. Spend 60 minutes exploring the coral reef and admiring schools of tropical fish.


Back aboard the boat, rinse off in one of the freshwater showers and change into dry clothes for lunch. Enjoy up to 4 alcoholic drinks such as mai tais, margaritas, wine or beer. Dig in to the Hawaiian buffet lunch, including kalua pig, teriyaki chicken, pasta salad, potato salad, rice and fruit. As you eat, the boat will cruise back to the marina.


When you return to dry land, you have the option to purchase photos that the tour company's professional photographer took during your adventure. Enjoy drop-off back at select Waikiki hotels.

What an amazing cruise and crew. The whole experience was wonderful for the five of us and the crew went way above and beyond. We saw dolphins we saw on the way out which we stopped and they put on a great show for us. They had those who weren't actually snorkeling involved by feeding the fish and one crew member spent about 30 min in the water working with a young girl 7 or 8 yr old snorkeling for her first time. Swimming with the turtles and fish was awesome. Great food and drinks. I would def recommend this cruise and will be joining you again if we come back to Hawaii.

This was the highlight of our Hawaiian vacation. Even though the weather wasn't looking good when the boat left the dock, the cheerful crew kept us laughing and having a great time. It did eventually clear up and we were able to snorkel in beautiful clear water full of tropical fish and a pod of dolphins. We were fully trained on how to use the equipment and I felt safe the entire time. They even helped me when my mustache was causing water to leak into my mask. The food and drinks provided on the boat on our trip back were great. I highly recommend buying the pictures that are taken throughout the trip - they allowed us to focus on enjoying ourselves without having to constantly take pictures. I can't praise this tour enough.

Fantastic boat. Fantastic crew. We didn't have the best snorkeling location because we had to go further out to find the dolphins, but the crew made sure a good time was had by all. Food was surprisingly good as well. Awesome trip, Highly recommended.Captain Jim was excellent, so were his assistants and a great photographer as well. Would book again with same company.
