The Top 4 Oahu Cruises You Must Try – From Dinner Cruises to Snorkeling Cruises

Oahu cruises come in many shapes and sizes – from snorkeling cruises to dinner cruises to holiday cruises.

Perhaps since Oahu is Hawaii’s most populated island, it is known as “the gathering place.” By taking a cruise from the island you get to meet some of the island’s other visitors and local residents – and follow the ethos of this wonderful island.

There are so many ways you can enjoy the water of Oahu: by catamaran, by cruise ship or by sail boat.

Choosing the right cruise to take can be a challenge, but these Oahu cruises are among the island’s best:

1 – Snorkeling Cruise

There is no better time to experience Oahu’s waters than getting out there and diving in.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a beginner or an advanced snorkeler, there are a number of snorkeling cruises in Oahu that will take you on a guided tour of some of Oahu’s best snorkeling spots…ones you probably wouldn’t find on your own.

Take in the west shore of the island with Ocean Joy Cruises’ Hawaii Dolphin Snorkel. The tour includes a swim and a snorkel and the chance to meet some of the ocean’s most impressive inhabitants, such as spinner dolphins and green sea turtles, up close.

2 – Whale Watching Cruise

There are a number of options for seeing humpback whales in Oahu. Just make sure you book your tour during the whale season, between December and April.

However, there is no better way to get up-close and personal with these spectacular creatures than by being out in the ocean alongside them. Get the chance to see the majestic humpbacks playing and breaching in the waters, as well as nursing their young with a whale watching cruise in Oahu.

Take a sailing catamaran along the west Oahu coast with Hawaii Nautical for some unforgettable photo opportunities, and if you don’t see a whale they will let you ride again for free until you see one.

3 – Sunset Cruise

Take a romantic sunset sail off the island and into the ocean on the Makani Catamaran, a beautiful boat tour that includes an island-style dinner and one complimentary drink.

With an on-board bar and a spacious lounging net for incredible views of the sunset, the tour is one of the most romantic ways to spend your evening in Oahu. You can also enjoy the views of the famous Waikiki shoreline as you relax in the middle of the ocean.

4 – Dinner Cruise

Finally, there is always the ever-popular dinner cruise.

On one of these evening excursions, you can enjoy as much tasty local crab as you eat on the Oahu’s famous Star of Honolulu cruise ship – Hawaii’s premier cruise ship – on a two-hour-long dinner and sunset cruise.

Departing from Honolulu Harbor, the tour offers fantastic views of the Oahu coastline as well as some fun evening entertainment from the cast of “My Hawaii – Beyond the Reef.”
