HOLO HOLO

SNORKEL PRIVATE CHARTER

In Hawaiian, Holo Holo means to explore and cruise, so – let’s go Holo Holo!   Start your day off right as we leave Ko Olina Marina and set sail up the West Oahu coastline. The Private Charter option allows you to enjoy the exclusivity of having the boat all to yourselves. Perfect for small families, a group of friends, or that couple who truly wants that private yacht experience. Settle in and enjoy the breeze through your hair while taking in the vast views of our Oahu mountains, valleys, and ocean.

Keep an eye on the water as ocean life teems through our waters.  From the boat we may see Hawaiian Spinner Dolphin, Humpback Whales (Seasonally), Pilot Whales, Bottlenose Dolphin and even Flying Fish.

After anchoring, get ready for some fun in the water.  Our professional snorkeling gear and instruction will get you in and under the sea to view our array of tropical fish, Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, eels and much more!  Have fun jumping off the boat or relaxing on the inner tube.

Finally, bask in the sun while enjoying lunch and a cold drink on our spacious wrap around decks.  What more could you ask for?

THE CAPTAIN’S

SUNSET + TASTING PRIVATE CHARTER

End your day by joining us on your very own private sail in to the beautiful Hawaiian sunset.  Upon departing the docks grab a drink as we hoist the sail and make way to the horizon, maybe even dropping a fishing line or two.

Just like our morning cruises, keep an eye on the water as ocean life can be found at anytime, anywhere.  We may get a visit from Hawaiian Spinner Dolphin, Humpback Whales (Seasonally), Pilot Whales, Bottlenose Dolphin and even Flying Fish.

As you get comfortable, our Captain and Crew will begin to prepare and plate our Pupu tasting menu for the night.  Yes, we call it Pupus – but these Hawaiian style hors d’oeuvres, loved by our Captain and Crew will absolutely excite your palate. With the whole boat to yourselves, this experience is sure to surpass your wildest dreams of the perfect sunset cruise. Eat, drink, and be merry as you take in the five senses of Hawaii.

Finally, let your mind run free as you watch the sun dip into the horizon to end yet another day in Hawaii.    Ready to join us?

FULL DAY

KOMOHANA PRIVATE CHARTER

Komohana in Hawaiian means ʻWest Sideʻ – and we can assure you that this word will ring in your ears for ages to come after you experience Hawaiʻi’s beloved Komohana. Spend the day experiencing the beauty of our island from water instead of land! This charter is meant for anyone who wants the ultimate O’ahu by Yacht experience. Start your day sailing up the coast – scouting for native sea-life like dolphins, whales (seasonally), turtles, and more! Then stopping along the way at our highly desired snorkel spots – where you can swim with fish, turtles, and other sea life! 

The best part about having the whole day with us is the ability to reach the beloved Mākua Valley. Completely private and protected – Mākua Valley makes for one of the most beautiful beaches and valleys in the whole world. With common sightings of not only dolphins but the rare and endangered monk seal!

After lunch, sail back into the gorgeous Hawaiian sunset with our ʻono Captain + Crew Tasting Menu and glass of champagne.

It’s the best of both cruises – so if you can’t choose between the two – have both! Are you prepared for the highlight of your vacation?

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What should I wear?

First and foremost, all our cruises are done bare foot aboard our vessel.  There is no need for heels and boots as all footwear will be removed.

Holo Holo Morning Cruise:  Wear anything comfortable and flexible.  If you plan to jump into the water with us, bring or wear your swim suit/shorts.  A hat for sun protection is always a great idea to ensure you don’t burn your head and face.

The Captain’s Sunset + Tasting:  Button downs and dresses are welcome to the boat, however keep in mind the possibility of windy conditions – so, anything comfortable and flexible.  Whether Summer or Winter, the temperature cools quickly when the sun disappears; bring an extra cover up or sweater if you get cold.

What kind of ocean life will I be able to see?

Throughout the year we encounter various species of Fish, Turtles, Eels, Crustaceans and marine mammals such as Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins and Humpback Whales (Seasonal). Our Holo Holo Morning Cruise will provide the best opportunity to see a variety of ocean life through snorkeling and time capabilities.

Though we love to view our wonderful Hawaiian ocean life as much as possible, it is within our company’s discretion to respect the legal and safe viewing distances applicable to each species.

Do you provide snorkeling gear?

Yes, we provide various types of gear to help you enjoy the water!  For snorkeling we provide professional masks, snorkels, and fins for both youth and adults.  We also provide high visibility snorkeling vests and belts for comfort and safety.  For more in-water fun, we also provide inflatable inner tube floats.
