Private Sunset Cruise
Private Sunset Cruise Near Waikiki
Enjoy your own private sunset cruise
Discover the beautiful views of the ocean, local wildlife, the iconic east side of Oahu, and the sun dipping into the sea as you join me on a private catamaran cruise in Waikiki. We’ll depart from Kewalo Basin Harbor located in Honolulu and make our way up the coastline to Diamond Head, making stops along the way for any turtles, dolphins, or whales we may spot during our journey. Once at the top of our route, we will find a calm anchorage to relax at. Guests are welcome to join me for guided snorkeling and swimming or just dip their toes in the water as we soak in the beautiful afternoon. Lastly, we will watch the sunset in the ocean as we head back to the harbor.
The vessel is exclusively reserved for your party so you are welcome to play your own music and bring any refreshments you would like to enjoy during our time together. I’ll happily be sharing my local knowledge and the cultural history of the area we are traveling in throughout the cruise. There is no better way to end the day.

The Best of Waikiki!
This was probably my favorite part out of my whole trip to Hawaii. We asked to switch days to avoid the storm and Francesco was so quick, communicative, and even helped us get a discount. We saw whales then snorkeled with turtles and fish. The boat also has a cooler so you can bring your own snacks and drinks, and had a Bluetooth speaker to connect your phone to play music. Couldn't have had a better time. Francesco and his cocaption were so professional and kind. If I ever was in Honolulu again, I would book this trip. The private experience (especially during Covid) is unbeatable. 11/10 would recommend.
