Your Oahu sailing adventure begins at the Waianae Harbor, where you will board a sleek catamaran and set sail along the Leeward Coast. See the playful dolphins jump, spin and splash in the water, and keep your eyes peeled for turtles and other marine life. During whale season (November through April), you might even spot a humpback! Enjoy a delicious continental breakfast as you sit back, relax and admire the idyllic scenery.

Next, your captain will stop at a calm snorkeling spot. If you’re a beginner, you’ll easily learn how to use the snorkeling equipment, how to breathe through the snorkel and what safety measures to remember. The use of mask and fins is included, and you’ll receive a snorkel to borrow. Jump into the water with your professionally trained guide, and spend 30 to 45 minutes discovering the magical underwater world of Hawaiian marine life. You will see everything from brightly colored coral to schools of tropical fish.

After working up an appetite from snorkeling, sail back to Waianae Harbor as you feast on a buffet lunch, including hot dishes, salads, a gourmet sandwich bar, side dishes and desserts. Enjoy unlimited nonalcoholic drinks and two free alcoholic beverages (for those 21 and up).

Dolphin sightings are guaranteed on this Oahu cruise! In the rare event you do not see dolphins, you will be offered a sunset cocktail cruise or snorkeling adventure for free!

This tour operator offers a whale or dolphin sighting guarantee December through April!

    The Leeward Coast Dolphin and Snorkel Half-Day Cruise was well worth it. The crew was very nice.

    We had an opportunity to watch a pod of dolphins sleeping in the bay before the boat headed out for snorkeling. The snorkeling was done in a very clear area where one can see the bottom of the bay and see the fish and turtles. The crew goes in with you and makes sure everyone sticks together. They act as lifeguards while you are in the water.

    Being picked up from the hotel and taken to the boat was a huge convenience.
