In Hawaii, it’s all about going with the flow. So, when it comes to water sports, aquatic adventures, beautiful coastline and spectacular sea life, it doesn’t matter if you’re looking for heart-pounding excitement, an eco-education or a champagne toast as the sun slips beyond the Pacific horizon, you can ride the wave of Oahu’s boating and water activities.
Sail the Pacific on an Oahu boat charter and head out to a secluded sandbar. Jet set along the crystal blue surf by jet ski. Cruise the coast alongside sea turtles and dolphins. See Oahu by sea and air and reel up into the Oahu sky off the coast of Waikiki. Take a sunset cocktail sail and watch the sunset. Catch some rays on a catamaran or take a tour of an ancient fishpond, where royalty once enjoyed the privilege of dining on large fish.
Sunsets in Oahu are always celebrated. Particularly when paired with a mai tai and glazed ahi poke.
About 1,000 feet of line will give you the perfect view of Diamond Head or try a tandem ride on a wave runner with your honey.
Sail the Pacific aboard a catamaran cruise or follow the wind as your private crew charters the waters.
Start your weekend off with a bang when you set sail any Friday night along the Waikiki coastline to first watch the sun as it paints a masterpiece across the sky, and then to take in the fireworks spectacular. Options out on the water abound – from a daytime excursion on a 40-foot catamaran to a five-course dinner, live entertainment and flowing cocktails. Or try a snorkel sail to Turtle Town, where algae-eating fish peck at the shells of green sea turtles at a natural turtle-cleaning station.
Amp up the adrenaline with a trip out to Koko Marina to parasail, jet ski, bumper tube, take a banana boat ride, or defy nature and take flight up to 30 feet above Maunalua Bay by harnessing the power of controlled water pressure.
Guests of THE MODERN HONOLULU frequently ask about boat tours and charters. Catch the trade winds in your sails with one of our preferred vendors; adventures can take form of a cruise with pupus, a private sailing lesson or even a private inter-island sailing excursion.
