Description:
MORE THAN JUST A CRUISE. IT’S AN EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME!
Come join the fun! Ocean Joy Cruises will take you to the unspoiled Waianae coastline on the island of Oahu where dolphins, turtles and other Hawaiian sea life play and flourish. Take a dive into one of Hawaii’s most secluded snorkeling spots, watch dolphins as they glide through the cool waters of the Pacific, view the most stunning scenic vistas and perhaps, even watch the most romantic sunset on earth.

MORNING CALM, AFTERNOON ADVENTURE, OR SUNSET SNORKEL CRUISE
 
Our Morning Calm, Afternoon, or Sunset Snorkel Cruises are the premier experience that will take you up the entire Waianae coast (west coast of Oahu), from Ko ‘Olina Marina to various points along Oahu's western coastline.

Learn about the magical history of our islands and the Waianae coastline as our crew enchants you with legends and history of this beautiful land.

Get your video and still cameras ready, because we’ll see with Dolphins (Nai’a), Whales (Kohola) [in season], Green Sea Turtles (Honu), and Flying Fish (Malolo) along the way! When we do meet up with the dolphins and whales, we’ll stop the boat, and sit with them as our knowledgeable crew will tell you everything you want to know about these amazing and beautiful creatures.

After an exciting ride up the coast, we’ll enjoy an hour of snorkeling in the pristine waters off Oahu's western coastline. We provide the best of snorkeling equipment for you to enjoy as you swim in the sparkling blue water of Makua amongst unspoiled reef and sea life where no other tours take you.

While still tingling from your snorkeling and dolphin watching experience, enjoy our sumptuous lunch buffet, and sip on a tropical Mai Tai, an ice-cold beer or any of our other beverages to your heart’s content. Let the cool Hawaiian breeze relax your soul as we make our way back down the coast to our luxurious Ko ‘Olina Marina home.

During the whale watching season (December through April), we definitely look for whales on every cruise.

Click on the red "Book It" button and you will see live availability. Keep in mind availability changes constantly, so make sure to book in advance!
H Tours Hawaii is a "one stop shop" for all the best activities in the Hawaiian Islands. Since we work with many providers, reservations are necessary. WE HIGHLY recommend making reservations, as many activities are at a discount when you reserve in advance. Some providers even charge higher for those "walking in" because they know chances are you're not going to walk away. Finally, a reservation ensures you have a space on the tour. Trust us you don't want to spend so much time and money to come to Hawaii and then miss out on an activity because they were booked out!
Choose the tour you are interested in, click the red “Book It” button adjacent to the tour information, and complete the booking form.
Most companies, if not all, require you to call them if you're trying to book something 2-3 days in advance. Do you really want to be spending your valuable time in Hawaii calling around to desperately find something that is available to do? While we can usually accommodate most last-minute bookings, we highly encourage those that are checking out our website far in advance to book 2-3 weeks prior to desired date. You never know if there's a convention, special event, or an increase in overall visitors in town, and it would be a shame if the activities that you want to do are sold out because you waited until the last minute. Basically, if you know you want to do it, just book it!
Most companies have a set of centrally located hotels that they do pick ups from. When you select your hotel in the booking page, you will see the pickup location and directions. This makes the pickup process short so you can start the tour as soon as possible!
Gratuity is never required but if you enjoyed your experience, a tip is always greatly appreciated!

Had the time of my life when we enjoyed an afternoon cruise. Saw turtles, whales and dolphins. Also the reef and fish. Amazing experience. We could not fault the crew. We have shared our experience with our travel agent and I hope it is shared with many more people who are planning a holiday in Hawaii. Highly recommend this to everyone.

We took a cruise on 1 January 2016 and it was one of the best parts of our trip. The crew was fantastic and the trip itself was amazing. We got to see whales; including one that breached the surface. We got the photo package and it was well worth it to be able to enjoy the trip and not worry about catching all the photo ops. We got great pictures because we told the photographer before we started ... moreout that we would be buying the package. Then we got to snorkel with fish and sea turtles and ended the day with a great buffet and drinks. It really was amazing. Thanks so much!!!
