Overview
Spend the morning sailing Oahu’s Leeward coast on a scenic, luxury catamaran cruise. Watch for spinner dolphins, whales, and plenty of other marine life from the boat and learn to snorkel with your expert guide. Swim near tropical fish and thriving coral reefs, and enjoy breakfast and lunch on the boat.
Highlights
  • Sail, snorkel, and see dolphins, whales, turtles, and other marine life
  • Guaranteed dolphin sightings
  • Hassle-free round-trip transportation from Oahu hotels
  • Breakfast, lunch, and complimentary alcoholic drinks included
What to Expect
Climb aboard for a scenic cruise along Oahu’s southwestern coast. Enjoy a continental breakfast on the catamaran as you watch for humpback whales (November – April), turtles and spinner dolphins. Dolphin sightings are guaranteed on this tour. In the event that you don’t see dolphins, you are offered a free snorkeling adventure or sunset cruise. Your captain moors the boat in a protected area with calm waters for snorkeling. After learning the basics and getting fitted with provided equipment, follow your guide for a snorkel tour, swimming near colorful coral reefs among tropical fish. Then enjoy a tasty deli lunch including two alcoholic drinks per adults before returning to the dock or continuing on to your hotel. This tour is a Certified Dolphin Smart Provider and encourages wild dolphin conservation and responsible viewing to minimize risk to natural behavior.

Who can ask for a better way to start the day than with breakfast on a catamaran sailing through the clearest blue waters, watching a group of spinner dolphins? Follow that up with a short sail to an area with beautiful views from the boat and beautiful views in the water where
