Holo Holo Morning Snorkel Cruise

Holo Holo Morning Snorkel

In Hawaiian, Holo Holo means to explore and cruise, so – let’s go Holo Holo!

Start your day off right as we leave Ko Olina Marina and set sail up the West Oahu coastline. Settle in and enjoy the breeze through your hair while taking in the vast views of our Oahu mountains, valleys, and ocean.

Keep an eye on the water as ocean life teems through our waters. From the boat we may see Hawaiian Spinner Dolphin, Humpback Whales (Seasonally), Pilot Whales, Bottlenose Dolphin and even Flying Fish.

After anchoring, get ready for some fun in the water. Our professional snorkeling gear and instruction will get you in and under the sea to view our array of tropical fish, Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, eels and much more! Have fun jumping off the boat or relaxing on the inner tube.

Finally, bask in the sun while enjoying lunch and a cold drink on our spacious wrap around decks. What more could you ask for?

Private Charter or Semi Private Cruise?

Private Charter: Our Private Charter options provide a chartered yacht for up to five passengers, with a Captain and Mate included. All Private Charters are at a set rate, no matter the passenger count (up to five). Private Charters allow guests more flexibility with the day’s schedule and activities. Private Charters are most popular with couples and families and also includes our drink and menu services. Yacht rentals are not a service that we offer. Check out our videos below to learn more about the benefits of Private Yacht Chartering on Oahu or view our offered Private Charters.

Semi Private Cruise: Our Semi Private Cruise is a shared cruise for up to five passengers, with a Captain and Mate included. These Semi Private Cruises are provided at a “per person” rate, and allows guests to experience a charter type trip with other guests. Semi Private Cruises are less customizable than our Private Charters but still offer great activities guided by our Captain and Mate. These Semi Private Cruises do also include our drink and menu services. Check out our videos below to learn more about the benefits and differences of Private Chartering and Semi Private Cruises on Oahu or view our offered Semi Private Cruises.

Can you accommodate my dietary restrictions?
Absolutely! Please advise us of any dietary restrictions (i.e: Vegan, Vegetarian, Allergic to nuts, etc) at time of booking so we can be sure to accommodate this request.

What should I wear?

First and foremost, all our cruises are done bare foot aboard our vessel. There is no need for heels and boots as all footwear will be removed.


Where are you located? Where's check-in?
We are proudly located at the Ko Olina Marina [92-100 Waipahe Pl. Kapolei, HI 96707]. Upon arrival at the Marina, our Captain and Crew will be meeting you and your group in the Ko Olina Marina Store.

More Information

We have taken generous measures to ensure health, safety, and a virus free environment for you, our crew, and any guest. Most precautions and safety measures were standard for our operation prior to the pandemic; however, now more than ever will we emphasize our detailed cleanliness and sanitation procedures.

Covid Protocols

MANA Cruises and Charters has been mandated to participate in the City and County of Honolulu’s Safe Access Oahu program starting September 13, 2021 with a planned end of November 12, 2021. The program is defined by the City as follows:

The “Safe Access O‘ahu” program requires all employees, contractors, and volunteers of businesses, such as restaurants, bars, gyms, movie theaters, museums, arcades and other similar establishments, to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative COVID-19 test result each week in order to operate. In addition, customers must show proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result taken within the previous 48 hours in order to enter the establishment. Children under 12 years old are exempt.

Are the crew vaccinated or tested? Yes, our crew will be mandated to follow the requirements of providing proof of COVID vaccination or a negative COVID test within seven days of scheduled work. If any of our crew cannot meet these requirements, they will not be aboard any vessels.

What forms of proof are accepted? We will be accepting all COVID vaccination cards and test results in original, copied, or digital form.  

Our most common COVID-19 related questions and answers:

Do the crew wear masks? Our crew have been provided custom neck and face masks that can cover nearly the entire face. These masks are often used to protect crew from the sun as well as air-borne particles. These masks are required to be worn by our crew, and must cover their mouth and nostrils during any food prep, drink prep, and anytime they may be within 6 feet of any guest.

Do I need to wear a mask? In following with CDC and State of Hawaii recommendations, we recommend you wear masks anytime you may be within 6 feet of others and if you enter any enclosed space. However, for most parts of the vessel area, you are not required to be masked.

How do you clean the boat? Since inception, we at MANA Cruises and Charters have always washed and cleaned the entire vessel before every trip. The general exterior surfaces are washed with water and hand dried with chamois. Exterior railings and handrails are wiped with Lysol disinfectant, while the interior trim and common area are sanitized with Lysol disinfectant. The boat is completely dried and aired in the sun before being boarded by new crew or guests.

Cancellation Policy

Any per passenger bookings for the Holo Holo Morning Cruise or Captain’s Sunset + Tasting must cancel reservations no later than 48 hours before the scheduled departure. No refunds will be given to these bookings canceled within 48 hours of the scheduled departure.
Charter and Private Boat bookings must cancel reservations no later than 5 days before the scheduled departure. No refunds will be given to these bookings canceled within 5 days of the scheduled departure.


A cruise or charter can be cancelled at the captain’s discretion any time before the scheduled departure. A full refund will be provided to all paying guests when a cruise or charter is cancelled by Mana Cruises LLC.
Though we do our very best to avoid these situations, poor weather, safety concerns, and unforeseen mechanical problems can arise at anytime.

We had an amazing trip with Austin and Rodney! We saw whales, pods of dolphins, a monk seal, and the snorkeling was awesome. Rodney brought up great things from the bottom, including a small octopus. The lunch was delish! Austin and Rodney were very informative and interactive. The yacht is amazing!!!!
We loved every minute!
