Spend the morning sailing Oahu’s Leeward coast on a scenic, 3-hour, luxury catamaran cruise. Watch for spinner dolphins, whales, and plenty of other marine life from the boat and learn to snorkel with your expert guide. Swim near tropical fish and thriving coral reefs, and enjoy breakfast and lunch on the boat.

What to Expect

Arrange a hotel pick-up or meet your guide at Waianae Harbor. Climb aboard for a scenic cruise along Oahu’s southwestern coast. Enjoy a continental breakfast on the catamaran as you watch for humpback whales (November – April), turtles and spinner dolphins.

Dolphin sightings are guaranteed on this tour. In the event that you don’t see dolphins, you will be offered a free snorkeling adventure or sunset cruise.

Your captain moors the boat in a protected area with calm waters for snorkeling. After learning the basics and getting fitted with provided equipment, follow your guide for 30-45 minutes of swimming near colorful coral reefs among tropical fish.

Then enjoy a gourmet buffet lunch including 2 alcoholic drinks per adults before returning to the dock or continuing on to your hotel.

This tour is a Certified Dolphin Smart Provider and encourages wild dolphin conservation and responsible viewing to minimize risk to natural behavior.

The cove where we anchored was certainly deep enough for snorkelling. There was an abundance of spectacular fish and marine life including several sea turtles.
