Glass Bottom Boat Friday Fireworks Cruise

Glass Bottom Boat Friday Fireworks Cruise


Oahu Fireworks Shows for Any Occasion
Our Friday night fireworks tour outside of Waikiki is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. You’re sure to experience the Friday night city lights as you’ve never seen them before when you join us on this fun tour! Enjoy drinks, music, and sightseeing as we cruise to the perfect spot to watch the fireworks, and take in breathtaking views of the Honolulu skyline and under the sea with under water light glass bottom boat viewing.

Our firework cruise in Honolulu, Hawaii is perfect for any celebration, family outing, or if you’re visiting Hawaii for a short while. We provide water and juice on all our cruises, but you are welcome to bring your own food and drinks (including adult beverages) to enjoy during the show. We even have coolers with ice that you can use.

This is a magical moment that you must experience at least once during your time in Hawaii. Our boat will set out before the fireworks start which will give everyone a chance to settle in and get ready for the spectacular show that will happen soon. If you are ready to experience the fireworks show, you can book online with our calendar that shows our real-time availability. Have any questions or need more information? Give us a call today! Come aboard, grab a drink, get cozy, and prepare for an amazing fireworks show along with underwater light viewing on our Hawaii Glass Bottom Boats.

TIMES: Boat leaves dock at 7:30 every Friday evening for the 8:00pm fireworks from Hilton Hawaiian. It’s a 1 hour tour.

Where are you located?
We’re in the Kewalo Basin Harbor, about a 15 to 20-minute drive from most resorts in Waikiki. For GPS purposes, our address is 1009 Ala Moana Blvd Honolulu, HI 96814. The Haleiwa Queen is docked at slip F26.

Do you provide transportation from Waikiki?
No. You must make your own arrangements to meet us at the Kewalo Basin Harbor. There is plenty of cheap parking at the harbor, or you can take a taxi or app-based ride share service like Uber and Lyft.

What kind of boat is it?
The Haleiwa Queen is a 50-foot power catamaran with glass viewing ports on the bottom so you can see what’s going on underwater without ever getting wet!

Is the boat handicap accessible?
Passengers with mobility issues need to be able to take a step across from the dock to the boat in order to board, and then guests can then be immediately seated. Our crew can assist if needed — just make sure to arrive a little bit early! Once on board, there is plenty of space for all our guests. Walkers and collapsible wheelchairs can be brought on board. Motorized chairs or scooters are not allowed.

What do we see aboard the glass-bottom boat?
On the day light tours you can expect to see local reef fish, turtles, eels, beautiful living reef formations, and the famous South Shore of Oahu. You get spectacular views of Waikiki, Diamond Head, and the cityscape of downtown Honolulu. Sharks, dolphins, and whales may also be seen depending on the season.

Is there a bathroom on board?
Yes, there is one marine head on the boat.

Are any food or drinks provided?

Best activity in Honolulu!

This is a must to do for all ages! Our family had an amazing experience!! The kids said it was their favorite thing we did on the island and we did a lot. The music, sunset, fireworks and atmosphere was fantastic!! The tour guides were awesome!! If you’re not sure just do it, it will not disappoint.

44th Wedding anniversary-watching the friday night fireworks

My wife and I have seen the Friday night Fireworks before at Waikiki But we had the opportunity this year to celebrate our 44th Anniversary watching the fireworks from the bay on the Hawaii Glass Bottom Boat. The Captain and his "1st Mate" were wonderful. The number of passengers on the cruise was excellent and it felt very family and group friendly. It was a pleasant surprise when the captain announced our anniversary...( I suspect friends/Ohana who booked the cruise for us did that) Mahalo!!!!

Leaving the harbor and turning the corner with Waikiki and Diamond Head in full unobstructed view was really neat to see ....But watching the fireworks from the Bay with Waikiki and Diamond Head as a backdrop was absolutely amazing and easily worth the small expense of the cruise. All the times I have been to Honolulu with my wife, I never knew this was a must do, but now I do and so do you!

Note: 1.)This is a Fireworks cruise, NOT a normal glass bottom boat cruise so there is No expectation to see 'stuff' other than the great evening views already mentioned and the great fireworks (that never ever any where last long
2.) Parking is tough because of the popularity of the beaches and events around the harbor area. Plan to arrive EARLY and be patient.
