Everything’s taken care of on this half-day catamaran cruise off the western coast of Oahu, which includes snorkeling and dolphin-watching. Enjoy a buffet lunch of Hawaiian fare and drinks on the comfortable catamaran, equipped with shower and changing facilities. Snorkeling gear and instruction, round-trip transportation from select Waikiki hotels, and choice of morning or afternoon departures are included for ease. It’s the perfect outing for all ages and experience levels.
What to Expect

After pickup from select Waikiki hotels, transfer to a 61-foot (18.5-meter) catamaran for your cruise.

Glide north along the coast where you might spot marine life such as dolphins, green sea turtles, whales, and flying fish, and hear from the crew about Hawaii’s natural history along the way. Head to a secret snorkeling spot where you have about one hour to snorkel (equipment provided). After checking out the coral reef and tropical fish, return to the boat and have the option to rinse off in a freshwater shower.

Your crew serves up a Hawaiian buffet lunch that includes kalua pig, accompanied by up to four drinks including margaritas, wine, beer, or non-alcoholic options. Head back to the marina where you can purchase photos of your cruise if desired. Your tour ends with drop-off in Waikiki.
