Whale Watch Guarantee! (until 2020/04/15)

If no whales are sighted during your cruise, you will receive a second trip for free. Don't miss your chance to witness this majestic display.

Please Note: This offer is valid for only one free trip. In the unlikely event that you do not see any whales on your second trip, you will not receive a third trip for free.

Set sail along the western coast of Oahu on a beautiful catamaran and search for Hawaii's favorite seasonal visitors, the amazing Humpback Whales! Departing far away from the crowds of Waikiki, you will enjoy a front-row seat to see the whales in their natural environment. With a Whale Watch Guarantee allowing guests to cruise again for free if no whale is spotted, this daily adventure gives guests the best chance possible to spot these amazing animals. During your winter visit to Hawaii, do not miss out on a memorable whale watching excursion, perfect for the whole family!
Please Note! This activity only operates in the winter. Please book the Dolphin Watch & Snorkel BBQ Lunch Catamaran Sail (from Waianae Harbor) during the Spring, Summer, and Fall months.
