Dolphin Watching, Sightseeing and Snorkeling Cruise - Hop aboard Oahu's only marine vessel designed exclusively for the best ocean activity experience.
Our cruise adventure is the only experience that will take you up the entire Waianae coast (west coast of Oahu), from Ko 'Olina Marina to the northernmost tip of the coast, the sacred Ka'ena Point.
Learn about the magical history of our islands and the Waianae coastline as our crew enchants you with legends and history of this beautiful land.
Get your video and still cameras ready, because we'll see with Dolphins (Nai'a), Whales (Kohola) [in season], Green Sea Turtles (Honu), and Flying Fish (Malolo) along the way! When we do meet up with the dolphins and whales, we'll stop the boat, and sit with them as our knowledgeable crew will tell you everything you want to know about these amazing and beautiful creatures.
After an exciting ride up the coast, we'll enjoy an hour of snorkeling just off the Ka‘ena Cliffs, past the end of the road, where the only access is by boat or hiking. We provide the best of snorkeling equipment for you to enjoy as you swim in the sparkling blue water of Makua amongst unspoiled reef and sea life where no other tours take you.
While still tingling from your snorkeling and dolphin watching experience, enjoy our sumptuous lunch buffet, and sip on a tropical Mai Tai, an ice-cold beer or any of our other beverages to your heart's content. Let the cool Hawaiian breeze relax your soul as we make our way back down the coast to our luxurious Ko 'Olina Marina home.
