All aboard the Dolphin Star for an evening of drinks, music, and of course, a fireworks show! There is no better way to spend your Fourth of July, than on the calm waters along the coast of Waikiki. Soak in the incredible sights of the city lights as you make your way from Kewalo Basin, and sip on a wide variety of delicious cocktails and beverages while listening to the soothing sounds of live Hawaiian music. Settle in on the top deck or find a spot along the side decks before the sky begins to light up with the annual fireworks spectacular. An amazing option for all ages!
