Friday Night Fireworks Sail (Waikiki)
We can't think of a better way to start the weekend than with a beautiful sunset, an open bar, and a sensational fireworks display!
Every Friday evening, the Hilton Hawaiian Village celebrates the start of another weekend with a spectacular fireworks display. This weekly ritual draws in onlookers by the thousands, but you don't have to be one of them. The Friday Night Fireworks Cruise will give you a front-row seat from the water. From the deck of the luxurious Makani catamaran, you can take in dazzling sights and sounds without joining the crowd.
Join the experienced crew of the Makani for this spectacular one-hour cruise from Kewalo Harbor. This luxurious vessel offers an exciting sailing experience while also providing the creature comforts of indoor and outdoor seating, dual restrooms, a high-end sound system, and a wide selection of complimentary beer, wine and craft cocktails.
Roundtrip transportation from Waikiki area hotels is included for a stress-free experience. Pick-up times will vary depending on your location.
You'll be welcomed aboard the Makani just in time for sunset. As you sail along Oahu's southern coastline, enjoy the world-famous panoramic view of the Waikiki skyline. You will see the iconic Diamond Head Crater, the exquisite beaches and resorts of Waikiki, and the classic and modern architecture of downtown Honolulu framed by the dramatic Ko'olau Mountains which rise up behind the city.
As you sail, you may spot dolphins, turtles, and other sea life near the catamaran. In the wintertime, you may even spot a humpback whale. Enjoy the complimentary island-style craft cocktails or just spend the whole cruise just relaxing on the deck and enjoying the balmy Hawaiian breeze, it's up to you!
The highlight of the cruise is watching the majestic fireworks show that draws big crowds to the shore every Friday night. Guests onboard the Makani get a front-row seat, though, far away from the crowds and cruising in style.
During the one-hour sailing experience, the friendly and professional crew are happy to answer any questions you may have. A full bar selection and non-alcoholic beverages are available and included with the tour.
