Holole'a Kai in Hawaiian means "to sail freely and with adventure on the ocean."
Set sail from the world-class Ko Olina Resort and Marina for a four hour sail and snorkel tour on this beautiful, swift and comfortable 53 ft. Gold Coast Catamaran along leeward Oahu's panoramic coast and its vistas of beautiful beaches, mountains and valleys. Roughly 200 spinner dolphins live along the Leeward coast and passengers can enjoy viewing them as they do their aerial jumps and sim just beneath them.
Dolphin and Whale Watching - During your shoreline sail our friendly and knowledgeable captain and crew will be on the lookout for a viewing encounter with the playful and entertaining Hawaiian spinner dolphins, Pacific bottlenose dolphins and seasonal Alaskan humpback whales. Passengers can view through a glass bottom viewing area or though an exciting introductory "Snuba" offered during the summer months (April to October) or simply splash in with top of the line snorkel gear.
First Snorkel Site- Your captain will choose from three fabulous west Oahu snorkel reefs, each abundant with tropical reef fish, exotic ocean wildlife and frequent visits from a variety of rays.
Second Snorkel Site - Snorkeling Oahu offers you a rare opportunity to encounter amazing sea turtles up close at “Turtle Town”, a natural turtle cleaning station where algae-eating tropical reef fish clean their shells and skins.
All snorkel gear and life vests are included. A sandwich bar lunch, fresh fruit, pasta salad, soft drinks and juice will be served at your snorkel sites where you can enjoy your meal and beverage while lounging in our spacious cabin or on our roomy deck.
