Honolulu’s city lights are etched in the memories of thousands of travelers. One of the best ways to savor the view is from the deck of one of several seagoing vessels that travel O‘ahu’s shoreline every evening.
Vessels range from small catamarans and yachts to larger craft that can carry hundreds of guests. Dinner menus also vary from casual fare to elegant seven-course dinners.
Most DINNER CRUISE EXCURSIONS feature hula dancers and elaborate entertainment, and many offer transportation to the vessel.
It’s smooth sailing aboard the Majestic, ATLANTIS ADVENTURES’ 150-foot-high-tech vessel. Choose from either the ISLAND STYLE BUFFET CRUISE that serves up a delectable menu including the pacific catch of the day, or the SUNSET COCKTAIL CRUISE with a tasty selection of pupu (appetizers) like chicken satay with Thai peanut sauce and edamame with garlic and chiles. Both cruises include stunning sunset views and exquisite entertainment. NOTE: at press time, Atlantis’s cruises were temporarily suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions. Visit majestichawaii.com for details and updates.
For a more open-air experience opt for a sail aboard Mana Kai or Royal Hawaiian catamarans. Both offer sunset cruises that offer stunning views of Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head.
No matter which cruise you choose, plan on a balmy breeze, the gentle movement of the ocean, a gorgeous sunset and the beguiling backdrop of Honolulu’s city lights. It’s an exquisite way to end a perfect day on O‘ahu.
