Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Following pickup at select Waikiki hotels, transfer to the pier, where you'll leave your shoes (which will be stored safely in your absence) before stepping on to the boat. 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. 

    Collect your shoes and the pier and board your ground transportation for drop-off at selected Waikiki hotels.

    This was a great short cruise. The staff was very friendly. The food was better than I expected and the sights were amazing! Mahalo to the crew! I would recommend Dramamine if you are susceptible to motion sickness.

    Last day here, we booked the cruise for the evening since we watched it sail out every night and we were just a little curious as to whether it would be worth it . It was, without a doubt. The appetizers were enjoyable and actually good. The drinks were good also. We sailed

    Once outside the channel the engines are shutdown for an authentic sailing experience off Waikiki and Diamond Head. Drinks and food but no dancing or live music...just a gorgeous sunset. Includes pickup/return to various hotels.
