What to Expect & Know Before You Go
  • While all of the Oahu dinner cruise boats and catamarans will have some sort of indoor area, it is recommended that you bring a light jacket or sweater to wear once the sun goes down. While Hawaii is quite warm and temperate, it can become a bit chilly out on the water once the sun has set.
  • Depending on the ocean conditions and the size of the boat used for your sunset dinner cruise in Honolulu and Ko Olina, it is recommended that you wear flats or low heeled shoes for your safety. Also be sure to double check if your boat is a "barefoot cruise" since these dinner cruises will require you to remove your shoes before boarding.
  • Although there is no dress code for many of the island's sunset dinner cruises, most guests wear casual or aloha attire.
  • The sunset dinner cruises on sailing catamarans will often have a lounging net to relax on during your tour. You might get splashed if you sit on the net, so be careful when you are in the area.
  • Hold on tight! When you are cruising, keep on hand on the boat at all times to make sure you don’t slip and fall.
  • If your tour is BYOB, many boats will not allow glass bottles, and it is safer to bring drinks that are in cans.
  • It is customary to give the captain and crew a gratuity if you feel they did an excellent job, and cash tips are always appreciated.

Oahu dinner cruises depart from Waikiki, Downtown Honolulu, and Ko Olina, and depending on where you are staying on the island, the check-in location could be anywhere from a quick walk from your hotel to an hour long drive.

For the dinner cruises that do not offer transportation near your hotel, you may want to choose an option that departs within walking distance or a reasonable rideshare or taxi ride. For guests staying in Waikiki and Ko Olina, there are options available for both resort and hotel areas.
