Cruise on a catamaran

Smooth sailing and possible glimpses of whales, dolphin and turtles.

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale…

While it may or may not be a three-hour tour, ocean-goers can enjoy the thrill of the open sea via an array of catamaran and boat tour options. Some tour operators—including Gemini Charters—even pull right up to the beach to load and offload riders.

Passengers on these smooth-sailing vessels can take in spectacular views of aquatic wildlife including whales, dolphins and honu (green sea turtles) in their natural environment. Sunset tours are available and serve up the best twilight scenes Hawaii has to offer.
