Great Excursion

I realized last year that I had never done a sunset cruise while in Hawaii on past trips. After booking one for the first time last year it will always be on the list of things to do, whales or not. It is so beautiful and peaceful.

Pretty decent, saw whales

Not a big boat and it was a bit cramped but we had a great time with the open bar. The pupus were limited to fruit, veggies, sweet rolls, and some ham and cheese rolls.

Note: You'll have to walk into the ocean for a few feet to board so be prepared to take off shoes.

Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback about your Whales & Cocktails at Sunset Cruise. We're so happy to read that you enjoyed the cruise. We also appreciate your comments about the boarding process...for those guests who prefer a "dry boarding" we also offer this cruise on our power catamaran departing directly from the dock in Kawaihae.
We know there are a lot of activities to choose from when you're on the Big Island, and we're honored you chose to spend part of your vacation with us.
We look forward to sharing more adventures with you next time you're in our neighborhood!

Great Cruise makes for Perfect Evening

We were picked up from our resort hotel at the Hilton Waikoloa. This was the only sunset whale watch cruise I could find that was actually in Kohala (why go back down to Kona when you're staying in Kohala?), and we were not disappointed.

The pupus were solid and kept us full enough to grab a late dinner after. The drinks were plentiful with lots of choices. Best of all, the skipper knew what he was doing and found us some whales and dolphins. He even got the dolphins to swim alongside/under the boat, which was a truly unique experience to lie on the net, a couple feet above a family of dolphins swimming full speed.

I know they cannot control the animals or the weather, but we lucked out on both fronts. Would recommend!
