Meet your captain as you step aboard the 53-foot (16-meter) catamaran and set out for your day's first stop. As you cruise, you can relax on deck and watch the Hawaiian scenery pass by or explore the boat. The catamaran is fully equipped with a fully stocked bar, a teak interior, and freshwater showers. There is plenty of room for 40 passengers to spread out and get comfortable. 

Once you reach your first destination, get fitted for a mask and snorkel and jump into the water, a known habitat for the local spinner dolphins. Float around the coral reef in search of native marine life. Upgrade with a SNUBA excursion, a technique that is a combination of snorkeling and scuba diving. 

After two reef visits, dig into a Hawaiian-style lunch of soy-veggie burgers, chicken teriyaki, and pulled pork sandwiches. Guests over age 21 can sip a cocktail or two along with lunch. 

As the boat heads back to shore, enjoy the scenery, soak up some sun, or head below deck for a freshwater shower.

Traveler Tips

  • "Not crazy about location as it’s in front of the Diesel plant and you can hear the traffic going by." See review
  • "I wanted to love this but with 90 minutes spent getting from my hotel and the same getting back to my hotel - two ~ 30 minute snorkeling sessions required a 10:30 am - 5:30 pm day." See review
  • "There are plenty of options for snorkeling cruises, but the staff, from the storytelling bus driver Henry, to the Captain and his three lovely, gracious, and hard-working crew women made this one a fantastic evening." See review

Great experience
, Jun 2021
Captain Todd and his crew were amazing. I ended up getting motion sickness and his crew jumped right into action to help me feel better. All in all, it was a great experience. We saw dolphins, sea turtles, and plenty of exotic fishes. I would definitely book them again when I come to visit.
Great Choice while in Hawaii

It was a wonderful trip! The crew was excellent, the experiences were superior, and the time well spent.
Had a great time

We had a great time. Lucky to see dolphins and lots of fish. A must try. Worth it. Great service, the crew were excellent
Afternoon catamaran snorkeling
, May 2021
The captain was terrific about finding fish for us that day. We were limited by the bad weather but they went out of their way to make the trip memorable and found a school of dolphins to watch which was the highlight of the day! The service was excellent and you never wanted for a drink or snack.
Not exactly what we signed up for

Nice catamaran No wind, so we weren’t able to sail. :-( We visited only ONE snorkeling site...not 2 like the website said. That was a let down... Crew was pleasant

Typically snorkeling experience
, May 2021
Snorkeling was fun and we’ve done it many times. Nothing special about this snorkeling excursion. Saw fish, that’s about it. No sea turtles. Only snorkeled at one location. Captain and staff were great. No complaints there. Lunch—sandwich wraps—were tasty and fresh. Overall good excursion. Not exceptional, but good.
Must do in Oahu!

What a great way to kick off our week! We had an excellent adventure and got to see loads of fish and a few sea turtles. Even as a beginner I was able to experience the fun!

I would highly recommend this to EVERYONE!! The staff was absolutely amazing and accommodating. The experience was incredible and the scenery was breathtaking. Do it! You won’t regret it!
Fun experience!!
, May 2021
We had a blast! The captain and crew treated us like family and provided a fun, safe experience on the catamaran The drinks and sailing at the end topped it off.
Get under sail!

Can’t beat this “three hour tour” for a chance to get out on the ocean and swim with the fish. Great captain and crew, good food and drink. Generous and laid back.
