Sunset Snorkel Cruise - West Oahu


Embark on a unique adventure that brings together two amazing elements of Oahu: our world-class snorkeling and our stunning sunsets!


The Waianae coastline comes to life as the soft red glow of the setting sun washes over western Oahu. This evening treat takes you into the wide expanse of the Pacific as the day winds down, introducing you to the wide variety of creatures that live beneath the surface. This family-friendly expedition offers the chance to see dolphins, green sea turtles—and if you're here in the winter months—whales, before it’s time to surface for a view of the beautiful tropical sunset.

Sunset Snorkel Cuise


It’s not every day you get the opportunity to see a Hawaiian sunset and swim with the exotic creatures of the Pacific. Our Sunset Snorkel Cruise checks both boxes! See a side of Oahu you might otherwise miss. A knowledgeable crew is at your service at every step of the way, ready to provide information about the fascinating marine life you meet. The fun-loving dolphins and exotic flying fish are especially exciting. When we come across dolphins and whales, we cut our engines so you can enjoy some time watching these wonders of the ocean while our knowledgeable crew provide you with a wealth of information about them. 

After cruising along Oahu’s west coast, it's time to gear up and hit the warm waters. This is your chance to meet some of the inhabitants of the deep up close, in their element. All necessary snorkel equipment is provided, though if you have a waterproof camera, we highly recommend you bring it! Schools of tropical fish and green sea turtles let their curiosity bring them closer to you, providing an experience that no aquarium can recreate!

As much as you'll want to stay in this underwater paradise, more treats await you back on board. Now's the time to enjoy a delicious buffet and discuss the incredible things you saw beneath the water's surface. As you cruise back to Ko ‘Olina Marina, you’ll be treated to a spectacular tropical sunset like you've never seen before!
