Sunset Cruise’n

One thing you can always count on in my home of Hawaii is brilliant sunsets. The interesting thing about Oahu, specifically Waikiki, doesn’t face directly west, meaning, the sunsets are not directly in front of you when you’re sitting on Waikiki Beach. But here’s the good news: you can get a front-row seat to one of nature’s most spectacular shows: Hawaiian sunsets. You’ll get that selfie of you and your family in front of the setting sun. You’ll get that shot of the sun’s warm afternoon glow bouncing off Diamond Head. You’ll see the sun reflecting off of Waikiki’s hotels. It’s like an explosion of beauty. A sunset cruise will get you right in front of Oahu’s spectacular sunsets. Now, as a catamaran, I really like it when the crew lets me stretch my sails and dance on the waves….

Why Do Whales Come to Hawaii?

While it’s true that we enjoy a virtual endless summer here in Honolulu, we do have beautifully subtle changes between seasons. Every year, we know that fall and winter have arrived when our gigantic visitors from the north reach our waters. The humpback winters in Hawaii and I’m always so excited to see my old friends again every winter. The whales bring their babies with them so we get to see the families expanding each year. They normally arrive sometime in November. We know they’re coming, so they don’t give us an exact date. The humpback whale is a protected species, so when I see a whale, I know the crew will slow down, so as to give the whales enough space, and they need a lot of room. But because the whales know they are safe in Hawaii, they…

3 Things I’ve Learned About Dolphin Play

Dolphins Love To Play Spinner Dolphins are one of Hawaii’s most entertaining ocean animals. Whenever they are at my bow I can almost hear them giggling with one another about how they always stay right in front of me, no matter how fast I go. They cruise right off my bow, teasing me, cruising in my wake, then with a sudden burst of energy they jump straight into their air spinning like an acrobat, teasing me because I can’t do the same. It doesn’t matter, the dolphins are my pals and I love hanging out with them. Over my ten years playing with Spinner Dolphins off Waikiki’s shore, I’ve learned a few things which you may find interesting to know once you finally step foot on my decks (you ARE planning to come see me soon, aren’t you?) and see…
