Oahu’s west side offers some of the island’s very best family experiences. Cruising alongside leaping dolphins off a vast, mountainous coastline … snorkeling in a rainbow of tropical fish above vibrant living coral … being greeted in an underwater world by green sea turtles and perhaps a ray or two: hard to beat for kids and parents alike!
Dolphin Star sets off from Waianae Boat Harbor twice daily. A lovely boat, she has two viewing decks and a shaded cabin. The onboard grill comes in handy for great burgers at lunchtime, and certified naturalists provide excellent narration throughout the trips.
Ideal for families, the two-hour morning cruise includes a fun, interactive children’s program and souvenir activity book. A BBQ lunch is available.
The three-hour afternoon cruise includes the BBQ lunch, snorkeling at a special spot rich with marine life, a fresh shower afterward, plus a ”Blue Dolphin” cocktail, pineapple and refreshments.
