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.
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.
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.
How is the food prepared? All food is provided by caterer or is directly purchased through a grocer. Any food that is prepared aboard has been either pre-prepped in a certified facility, or has passed inspection at a certified grocer. Once aboard, our certified and trained staff will prep food for consumption using face masks and FDA approved gloves. All dishes and utensils are washed following Department of Health guidelines. Our on-board kitchen is certified by a Health Inspector Annually and carries the same requirements for any restaurant within the state.
We provide water on all cruises. You are also welcome to bring your own food and drinks (including adult beverages) on any of our cruises. We even have coolers with ice that you can use.
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.
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.
