Know More about this tour

After departing Kewalo Basin Harbor in Waikiki, relax aboard the luxury, 53-foot (16-meter) catamaran Honi Olani.

With seating for up to 49 passengers, the sailboat features a bar where you can use your two included drink tickets, plus order unlimited nonalcoholic beverages and provided snacks. You may also purchase additional alcoholic drinks; on offer are draft beer, sparkling wine, white wine, vodka, rum and whiskey.
Listen to music on the surround-sound stereo as you enjoy a scenic 15-minute cruise along the coast toward Diamond head. View Waikiki beach from the water, and keep an eye out for marine wildlife. During whale migration season (December through April), your captain makes a stop so you can catch sight of these majestic mammals.
When you reach Turtle Canyon, where Hawaiian green sea turtles are almost a guaranteed sight, put on your provided safety vest and snorkeling gear, and slip into Oahus Azure waters via a safe stairway. You have about one hour to spend on a guided snorkel adventure if youve selected the morning tour, or an additional 30 minutes in the water on the midday tour.
Afterward, youre free to make use of the full restrooms and freshwater shower back on board the catamaran. Then take a seat inside the covered cabin for a build-your-own-sandwich buffet lunch (midday tour only), or relax in the ample outdoor space to snap photos of the Waikiki skyline with the Koolau mountains in the background. Sample lunch items include ham, turkey, cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, chips, cookies and snack mix.

Your tour ends with return to the harbor.

    This was definitely a highlight of my trip. We saw a mother and baby whale swimming together and I probably saw about 15 turtles. There are a lot of other people in the water by the turtles but I was enjoying them so much I really didn’t notice. I would highly recommend this outing.

    Picked up by Kia who was very warm bubbly and enthusiastic and above all punctual. On the boat we met the rest of the crew Lisa and Don and were welcomed very warmly. The snorkel was amazing. We had a bonus whale watch on the way out. Nothing was rushed or too much trouble for the crew with lots of food and drink provided for lunch. We sailed back to harbour. A fantastic experience.
