At the pier, climb aboard your comfortable luxury catamaran and find a comfortable spot to sit and watch the scenery pass by. Enjoy a continental breakfast as you sail in search of spinner dolphins, turtles and humpback whales (November through April). Dolphin sightings are guaranteed December through April; in the rare event you do not encounter dolphins, receive a free snorkeling adventure or sunset cocktail cruise. 

The captain moors the boat at a calm snorkeling spot. Listen to a short lesson on the basics of snorkeling if you need it, then don the provided equipment and dive in. Follow your professional snorkeling guide among the coral reefs and colorful schools of tropical fish. 

Climb back into the boat and dig into a delicious deli lunch as the catamaran heads back to shore. The buffet lunch includes two alcoholic drinks.

Viewing wild dolphins in their natural habitat can be a thrilling experience.  However, we can disturb dolphins’ natural behaviors, such as migration, breathing, nursing, breeding, feeding, and sheltering by approaching wild dolphins too closely in vessels; moving vessels too quickly, or making too much noise.  The Dolphin SMART program is a voluntary education program that encourages responsible advertising and viewing of wild dolphins; thereby, minimizing the risk of disrupting their natural behaviors.  You are a steward for wild dolphin conservation by being a Proud Supporter of Dolphin SMART!

I booked this adventure only to be called and notified that they no longer provide masks or snorkels. They offered to sell me the combo at $25 per person in addition to the original price. I declined the option and was told I would receive a full refund. I did NOT receive a refund!

Even without the wildlife, we would have had an amazing time; Sapphire blue water, fun crew, great weather. Add in the fact we saw dolphins, flying fish, stingray, sea turtle, a bunch of tropical fish, and a whale, I call this a successful catamaran and snorkel excursion! My preteen, and teenage kids loved it too. Thanks for your hospitality Ko Nau Lani!

The whole crew, Bree, Anthony, Ian and Mike were courteous, knowledgeable and efficient. They got along quite well together, too. The catamaran was clean and well-maintained. It was just the right combination for me to feel safe in open water, which I longed to do, but feared at the same time. Equipment was basic, but just enough to get us out there and back. You could bring your own if you want. In an short motoring journey, we stopped off shore from Tracks beach. Big swell, but we never felt it. We stopped near a pod of pygmy whales, some sleeping, some feeding. Really tiny, dolphin sized true toothed whales. Once in the water, we were guided along for about 45 minutes was good enough to see the bottom. Corals, sea cucumbers, cushion starfish littered the seabed. Our guide dove with his giant fins to bring up a collector urchin A moray eel lurked in a grotto. Suddenly we found ourselves amid hundreds of butterflyfish, triggerfish and tiny mackerel, wary but curious, staying at a safe distance at all times. You never could touch one. Getting out of the water was easy, and the crew made us feel comfortable as they cut engine and unfurled the sails for the journey back to Waianae. Food and drinks were excellent. If you just go along for the ride, you'll still have a treat.

I got seasick but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the boat, crew, and snorkeling experience. Saw dolphins and a sea turtle. The coastline was beautiful.
