Ocean Sports - Pau Hana Sunset Cruise with the Whales

This cruise also takes place as a regular sunset cruise year round. To book this tour from April through November, please visit our Pau Hana Sunset Cruise page.

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. Munch on a variety of bar snacks and sip a complimentary beverage from the bar, sit back and relax.

Though whale sightings are not guaranteed on this cruise, we think you’ll find this the best start to your evening in paradise!

Tour Inclusions:

  • Soft drinks and tropical juices
  • Selection of beers, wines and cocktails
  • Individually wrapped bar snacks
