What To Expect

This 53-foot (16-meter) catamaran has plenty of space to spread out, so find a seat wherever suits you and enjoy the scenery as your boat glides out of the harbor. 

While you cruise south along the coast toward Diamond Head, check out the spread of appetizers like a cheese plate, caramelized onion meatballs and Kalua pork wontons with sweet chili sauce. Cash in your two provided drink tickets for wine, beer or a cocktail from the bar. Additional drinks are available for purchase, and you are welcome to unlimited non-alcoholic beverages.

When the catamaran reaches Diamond Head, the captain will swing the boat around for the best view of the sunset. Watch the sun's light change on the prominent crater that forms Diamond Head, one of Oahu's most famous landmarks. Be sure to bring your camera for spectacular photo ops. Relax and unwind as the sun sinks below the horizon, then enjoy the short ride back to the pier.

Sunset and staff were amazing!
Roxann_L, Mar 2023
We had the best time on this sunset cruise! The staff was amazing, made yummy “Hawaiian Shirley temples” for the kids and delicious Mai-Tais for the adults! They assisted with lots of pics and stories and overall were just a super fun crew. There are lots of cruises offered but we are so glad we chose this one.

We saw a turtle and some whales as well as a pretty sky at sunset! Met a nice couple from Iowa Crew was attentive and fun. Everyone had a good time!
Beautiful sunset

The tour guides spotted three humpback whales and they were able to get the vessel close enough for guests to enjoy. The drinks were great. The sunset was beautiful.
Sunset, Whales and Cocktails

This was our last night in Hawaii after 10 days. It was a perfect finish. We had a lovely sunset, smooth ride and a bonus whale sighting opportunity. The whales were breaching and spouting and it made our trip all the more entertaining. The crew were very friendly and helpful. They would spot the whales and tell us where to look. It also gave us a beautiful view of Diamond Head from the water. I would highly recommend this catamaran trip. Great crew, lovely views and cocktails- what else could you want?
Great night in Honolulu

What a great night! The crew were fun, efficient and knowledgeable. The drinks were great; I would recommend the Turtltini, Sea Breeze, and Mai Tai. We had chicken sliders with pineapple salsa, tasty. The sunset was beautiful but the absolute highlight was seeing lots of humpback whales. I would highly recommend the excursion. Only problem was getting a cab back; we took the bus which was great once we figured it out.
Sunset must do

This was the very first activity my husband and I did while visiting O’ahu & we could not recommend it more! The entire crew was so awesome & laid back. If you’re looking for a beautiful & relaxing evening, definitely book this cocktail cruise! We loved the feel of being in a small group as well, there was plenty of space. Highly recommend!
