The tour takes you out from the Kewalo Basin Harbor and cruises by Diamond Head, over live tropical reefs, and past one of Hawaii’s popular shipwrecks.

During whale season (November – May) you may even be able to spot majestic Humpback whales off in the distance.

The boat you will be riding aboard for the duration of the tour is a 50-foot powered catamaran with on-deck viewing ports through which you can see the ocean below. With a glass-bottom boat such as this one, you can enjoy what you see around you just as much as what you see below your feet. Keep an eye out for sea turtles, tropical fish, and vibrant coral reefs, and you may even be able to spot a shipwreck hidden along Oahu’s South Shore. The boat can accommodate up to 49 people so there is plenty of room for your entire party.
Oahu’s Diamond Head is a well-known landmark that can be seen from all over the island. Formed by a long-extinct volcano, Diamond Head is now a State Monument and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Hawaii. The name came from a British expedition in 1825 where British sailors discovered sparkling volcanic calcite crystals in the sand and mistook them for diamonds.
The coral reef in Hawaii is one of the most beautiful and diverse in the world. The clear waters around the islands provide perfect conditions for coral to grow, and as a result, there is a vast array of different types of coral to be found here. The reef also provides a home for thousands of fish, as well as other marine creatures such as dolphins and sea turtles. It is an amazing sight to behold, and a trip to Hawaii is not complete without seeing it!
