View Wild Humpback Whales & Diverse Sea Life off of Oahu’s Stunning Gold Coast!


2 Hours & 30 Minutes

You’ll meet us at the Kewalo Boat Harbor not far from Ala Moana Beach Park.

This glamorous new vessel has two decks, mood lighting, surround sound, a Titanic-style bow and a bathroom on board.

Oh boy! You are in for a treat. Those Poi Donuts are Good! Says Brynne, next to me as I am typing this out. Yes, even our crew enjoys these tasty bites.

And some hot coffee as the perfect compliment.

We will begin our boat ride by reciting a Hawaiian chant – a prayer to the gods of the sea for a safe trip with plentiful whale encounters.


View wild humpback whales and other diverse sea life in their natural habitat off of Oahu’s stunning Gold Coast. Relax on our all-new double-decker boat with wrap-around bow seating in between whale sightings.

We begin with a powerful Hawaiian plumeria flower ceremony and chant, “E Ho Mai” to bring us good fortune during our voyage. We’ll also serve up some morning beverages and pastries. Then we will cruise along Oahu’s windward coastline in search of humpback whales.


As we begin to spot the whales, our crew will share information about their fascinating annual journey. If we are close enough, our crew will drop a hydrophone into the water to hear the whales’ songs over our state-of-the-art sound system. Seeing whales up in person is an experience you will never forget!

On the way back you’ll be entertained by our amazing crew. They’ll perform authentic hula dance and songs. Don’t miss an opportunity to see one of the world’s largest animals in person during their migration through Hawaii!
