Cruise departure time 8:00 am
Duration: 7 hours


The Kai'oli'oli, which translates to "Joy on the Ocean", is Hawaii's newest, most state-of-the-art power catamaran in its class! With its exceptional high-speed and long range it allows to go where no others go! Stainless steel railings completely enclose the boat deck, providing the utmost safety on board. 

This cruise adventure is the only experience that will take you up the entire Waianae coast (west coast of Oahu), from Ko ‘Olina Marina to various points along Oahu's western coastline.

Learn about the magical history of our islands and the Waianae coastline as the crew enchants you with legends and history of this beautiful land.

Get your video and still cameras ready, because we’ll see Dolphins (Nai’a), Whales (Kohola) [in season], Green Sea Turtles (Honu), and Flying Fish (Malolo) along the way! When you do meet up with the dolphins and whales, the captain will stop the boat, and you will sit with them as the knowledgeable crew will tell you everything you want to know about these amazing and beautiful creatures.

After an exciting ride up the coast, you will enjoy an hour of snorkeling in the pristine waters off Oahu's western coastline.  The best of snorkeling equipment will be provided for you to enjoy as you swim in the sparkling blue water of Makua amongst unspoiled reef and sea life.

While still tingling from your snorkeling and dolphin watching experience, enjoy a sumptuous lunch buffet, and sip on a tropical Mai Tai, an ice-cold beer or any other beverages to your heart’s content. Let the cool Hawaiian breeze relax your soul as you make your way back down the coast to luxurious Ko Olina Marina.
