Ocean Joy Cruises - Morning Calm & Afternoon Adventure Cruises

Come aboard the Kai Oli Oli, a spacious catamaran, and enjoy a cruise along Oahu's scenic west shore. Get your cameras ready because we might see dolphins, whales (in season), green sea turtles and flying fish along the way!

Roundtrip transportation from Waikiki area hotels is available as an add-on or you can choose to drive to the Ko Olina Marina yourself from where the boat departs.

During the cruise, you’ll also learn more about the history of the island, as well as Hawaii’s spinner dolphins, who are known for their playful behavior and leaps and spins. After an exciting ride up the coast, you can enjoy an hour of snorkeling just off the Ka'ena cliffs near Oahu's northwesternmost tip - where the only access is by boat or hiking.
