Ocean Sports - Pau Hana Sunset (formerly Whales & Cocktails at Sunset)

Enjoy and relax with a cocktail in the tropical ocean breeze while cruising along the Kohala Coast! During the winter months, humpback whales visit the Hawaiian Islands, so keep your eye out for our whale visitors while aboard Ocean Sports' well-appointed catamaran.

Enjoy the beauty of a Hawaiian sunset and unparalleled shoreline views. Snack on some pupus (appetizers) and sip a complimentary beverage from the bar, sit back and relax!  There are also on-board naturalists to answer your questions.
