Full description

Experience an unforgettable journey on the only Venetian gondola boat tour in Hawaii. Access a third and fourth passenger ride at a discounted rate. Be captivated by the most amazing views on this finely crafted Italian boat and experience for yourself the wonders of the coastline of Honolulu. Enjoy refreshing drinks and delicious pastries while cruising the calm waters and taking in the sights and famous Oahu landmarks. Your expert gondolier will guide the vessel throughout a musical ride as you sit back and relax. Gondolas provide a more intimate alternative to catamarans, perfect for guests that want a smaller group experience, being able to go where no other commercial watercraft can go.

You will traverse under 3 bridges in Waikiki, glide along the harbor, and pass by Magic Island and Diamond Head. The tour never goes out into the sometimes choppy, wavy ocean so a smooth stable ride is enjoyed by all.

Don’t leave the island without going on this cruise. Eliot, Shantel and dad, Larry are the absolute best tour host. Doug and I were serenaded and enlightened on the rich history of the island all while enjoying refreshing drinks and tasty pastries of all sorts. I would definitely do this again. As an added treat I was able to put my cell phone away and enjoy the moment while Shantel captured all of the wonderful memories for us on their camera. Can’t wait to see the pictures.

Whew sorry for the late review. Life has been crazy. My husband and I went to the Waikiki scenic gondola cruise back in July and we loved it. It was our first time in Hawaii and attending a gondola and we’re happy we choose them. We felt comfortable and had so much fun❤️.

We had an amazing experience on the Gondola. We were greeted with the classic Hawaiian lei necklace. Took a few pictures with our very knowledgeable and pleasant gondolier. He gave us a history lesson about the gondola and also the city’s sites and sounds. The drink was cold and refreshing considering the warm weather. Locals waved as we passed by. We had a great time. I will definitely recommend this ride. Very relaxing and private.
