Full description

Discover Oahu with a guide on a private catamaran sunset cruise. Head to Diamond Head to spot marine wildlife and cruise past Waikiki. Jump into the turquoise waters to swim or snorkel with the gear provided or relax in the cabin with your own music playing via the onboard Bluetooth sound system. Depart from Kewalo Basin Harbor and make your way up the coastline to the iconic Diamond Head. Take your time and stop along the way if you spot any sea turtles, spinner dolphins, or whales (January to March). Marvel at these sea animals in their natural habitat.

Move onward to take in striking views of the deep blue ocean and the lush south coast of the island. Once at the top of the route, discover a calm anchorage to relax at. Dive into the water to snorkel and swim or just dip your toes in the water as you soak in this relaxing end to the day. Best of all, make the most of your private charter by playing your own music on the catamaran's speakers and bring any drinks and food you would like to enjoy during your time at sea. Learn about the island's history and culture from your local guides as they share their knowledge, passion, and skill en route. Head back to the harbor as you watch the sun set in the sea.

Great trip, saw a lot of dolphins up close! Swam and snorkeled with the captain. Really nice, cool guys that are professional but not snobby. Having the boat to yourself is really cool too.

Fantastic time for the family. Swimming with turtles at sunset in the shadow of a rainbow. How did they do that? Magic!
