Step by Step

This transparent-bottomed boat tour departs from Honolulu harbour and cruises to the famous Waikiki Beach. The cruise lasts approximately one hour and usually starts in the afternoon. During the cruise you will be able to listen to the explanations of an expert guide at all times. If you're wondering what wildlife you can see, you'll find the answer in the list below:

  • Parrotfish - recognisable by their squat shape, bright colours and the distinctive beak they use to crush rocks and coral, their main source of food.
  • Humpback whales - Humpback whales are cetaceans with an average length of 15 metres. They live in small groups and feed on zooplankton, a term that encompasses small crustaceans, larvae and krill (tiny marine invertebrates).
  • Green turtles - A common species in the archipelago, they can be seen both in the water and on the beaches, where they rest and accumulate heat.
  • Moorish idols - A colourful fish, characterised by a small disc-shaped body with yellow and black stripes. Its peculiarity is its long flag-shaped dorsal fin .
  • Spinner dolphins - Characterised by a long beak and white spots on the belly. They have a habit of following boats and performing large acrobatic jumps, probably for recreational purposes.
  • Fiery Surgeon - Dark brown with purplish highlights. Distinguished by white and orange "brushstrokes" around the fins.

This is just a small summary of the marine fauna as Hawaii is home to thousands of species. The cruise takes place aboard a medium sized boat, equipped with canopies to protect you from the sun. In addition, the tour includes water bottles to keep you hydrated. Alcoholic beverages are not included, but can be purchased on board.

    We saw lots of triggerfish, lots of coral and a stingray! It was fun to see how the fish were feeding and the boat ride was pretty easy.
