Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.

This activity will end right where it started.Please call 808-396-2068 upon arriving in Hawaii to confirm your pick up location and time.
Meet your captain as you step aboard the 53-foot (16-meter) catamaran and set out for your day's first stop. As you cruise, you can relax on deck and watch the Hawaiian scenery pass by or explore the boat. The catamaran is fully equipped with a fully stocked bar, a teak interior, and freshwater showers. There is plenty of room for 40 passengers to spread out and get comfortable. 

Once you reach the snorkeling destination, get fitted for a mask and snorkel and jump into the water, a known habitat for the local spinner dolphins. Float around the coral reef in search of native marine life.

After snorkeling dig into a Hawaiian-style lunch of soy-veggie burgers, chicken teriyaki, and pulled pork sandwiches. Guests over age 21 can sip a cocktail or two along with lunch. 

As the boat heads back to shore, enjoy the scenery, soak up some sun, or head below deck for a freshwater shower.

Traveler Tips


  • "Not crazy about location as it’s in front of the Diesel plant and you can hear the traffic going by." See review
  • "I wanted to love this but with 90 minutes spent getting from my hotel and the same getting back to my hotel - two ~ 30 minute snorkeling sessions required a 10:30 am - 5:30 pm day." See review
  • "There are plenty of options for snorkeling cruises, but the staff, from the storytelling bus driver Henry, to the Captain and his three lovely, gracious, and hard-working crew women made this one a fantastic evening." See review

Dolphins were mystical to watch
Wes_B
, May 2022
Crew was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Lunch and drinks were plentiful. Gear was thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. Waters were crystal clear, Snorkel area was filled with multiple species of fish that followed you around, Dolphins were plentiful and mystical to watch. Had a great time and would recommend Ko Olina Catamaran Tour to anyone looking for a great day on the water.

Fabulous excursion with incredible staff
Mynda_s
, Apr 2022
My husband and i brought our 18 year old daughter, and 2 of her friends, to hawaii to celebrate her birthday and graduation. This Catamaran was just the right excursion for them! The crew were all so kind and made sure we never had a hand without a drink (even if it was just sprite or water!) although everyone did get 3 free alcoholic drinks if they wanted them. The crew did all the hard work of getting everyone set up with snorkel gear while we all just relaxed and absorbed the hawaiian rays! We had to enter the water in a life jacket but once we entered the water we had the option of taking them off. We took ours off. One of the crew saw our daughter diving down and suggested she dive down through a cavern. It was so fun to see her dive down 30 feet with him knowing she was safe. He was FABULOUS! I think his name was Mike??? After snorkeling we enjoyed a boxed lunch with a delicious, AND HUGE, turkey sandwich. I miss the old ways of catamaran lunches but hopefully they'll go back to the "before covid" way of making and serving meals sometime in the near future. Captain Todd navigated the boat to allow us to see the dolphins which made everyone on the boat happy! Such a fabulous few hours of great weather, BEAUTIFUL snorkel site, yummy food, and lots of incredible staff to help us enjoy it all!

Booked the early morning tour by mistake instead of the mid-day. Got marked as a no-show.. No re-book to afternoon, no reschedule, no refund. $400 for nothing. Thanks

Fantastic Sailing Whale watching and Snorkeling
Sanjeev_T
, Dec 2021
The morning sail and snorkel tour was really fantastic and made more so by the crew’s great hospitality and knowledge. They made each of feel special with individual attention. We spent extra time chasing the whales and had multiple sightings. The snorkeling was awesome - They took us out a ‘hole’ to try to get some turtle and white tip shark sightings. All in all a really chilled and memorable morning. Just what we were hoping for.

The crew worked hard to make sure we had a good time. I was disappointed in the snorkeling compared to the Big Island but that’s not the crews fault.

Our Favorite Activity
Lana_H
, Nov 2021
We booked so many activities during our Hawaii stay and this was by far our favorite! The staff loved what they do and it showed. Every minute was well planned out and we enjoyed it all/felt super comfortable. We even got a feedback survey right after our trip which shows they care and want to make the experience fun. The provided lunch and drinks were also awesome. We had so many awesome gopro pics and I got awesome photos on my dslr. The bathrooms and all the sailboat areas were great! We loved it!

Awesome crew, tasty food, saw an amazing amount of sea life! We're supposed to go to 2 sites, only went to 1. Check in was NOT in the store, and very confusing/total lack of signage/help.

Simply the best! Naked Pirates All Day!!
Danielle_G
, Sep 2021
This trip was the highlight of our stay on Oahu! We did not know what to expect since this was our first time snorkeling, but it was above and beyond anything we could have anticipated. From the second the boat pulled up with great tunes blasting, we knew we were in for a treat. The staff was INCREDIBLE. There was never a time we did not have a drink in our hand when we were on the boat. The Naked Pirate is our new favorite drink! Do not miss out on it. They answered every question we had. They explained so much about what we were seeing in the ocean. We saw dolphin pods 3 times, a turtle, and a tonnnn of fish (seemed like every fish from Finding Nemo (except for Nemo whomp). The Captain was a delight as was his Captain in training who did a great job! Thank you Matt, Shannon, Jake, and Cap for an amazing experience!

For snorkel, dolphin watching, and a smooth sail with f+b, choose this one
Elizabeth_M
, Sep 2021
Fantastic crew. Great sailing, comfy boat, and good food and drink. Plenty of time to snorkel - which was my main concern, about 45 mins - and saw a bunch of fish and a turtle. Diversity of fish was pretty low but there were lots of the ones we did see. A different location may have been better. Saw a ton of dolphins during the sailing portion. Crew was super helpful and friendly, and could tell they paid special attention to getting the kids comfortable with getting in the water. Overall, highly recommend.
