Top Honolulu Activities: Where to Find Pool Parties and Boat Parties

If you’re into having fun in the sun, then pool parties and boat parties are Honolulu activities you should definitely check out on your next Oahu vacation.

Sure, Oahu has some of the world’s best beaches, but it’s also the perfect place to have a pool party. And what better place to have a boat party than off the shores of Honolulu, Hawaii’s most metropolitan city?

For a party that will keep you cool and inebriated all day and night, check out these hot spots:

Hawaiian Monarch Hotel

Hawaiian Monarch Hotel is one of the few Honolulu hotels that holds daytime pool parties. Their summer blasts and Bacardi Pool Parties are not to be missed. With a huge pool and sundeck, you’ll have plenty of room to drink, socialize, and stretch out under the tropical sun.

The hotel is located within walking distance of Waikiki beach and Ala Moana, just off the Ala Wai Canal. If you’re staying anywhere in Waikiki, you’ll be close to this hotel’s pool parties.

The Modern Honolulu

The Modern Honolulu, another Waikiki resort hotel, is another great spot to find pool parties during the summer months. While Bacardi lovers should head to Monarch, vodka lovers should stop by the Modern, which has recently been holding Grey Goose parties throughout the summer. Check their calendar for more details.

In addition to the hotel’s gorgeous Sunrise Pool, this hotel features a full range of amenities, from restaurants and bars to spa packages and wedding services.

Wet Beats

The Wet Beats boat party series had another great summer in 2015, so if you’re heading out to Oahu next summer, be sure to check their summer schedule in 2016. These parties feature some of the island’s best DJs, mixers, and nightclub hosts.

A number of sponsors put on these parties, including Bacardi, Uber, Tantriq Entertainment, and more. If you’re heading out to Honolulu this summer, follow Tantriq’s Facebook page for more info about these boat parties.

Electric Boat Cruise

The Electric Boat Cruise is another floating dance party that took place in 2015, so watch out for it next summer as well. This party was put on by Rise Up Electric, an entertainment company that puts on dance and electronic events.

To see if they’re hosting any boat parties during your trip, follow their Facebook Page.

Pirate Dance Cruise

Put on by Hawaii Pirate Ship Adventures, this 21-and-over event is a nighttime boat cruise and costume event. The Pirate Dance Cruise is a BYOB event that takes place on Friday evenings, features state-of-the-art lighting, and cutting-edge DJs.

This booze cruise takes place on The Treasure Seeker, which is decked out just like a pirate ship and features enough room for 49 passengers.


As you can see, Honolulu has plenty of pool parties and boat parties to offer the party-lover.
