Boasting iconic pink sails and twin hulls, Aloha Activities’ Island Magic Catamaran harnesses Oahu’s sea breeze as it whisks passengers to idyllic snorkeling destinations and sails across radiant sunsets. A stunning morning snorkel trip floats aquatic explorers to Turtle Canyon, stopping to allow snorkelers to dive in and romp with stately green sea turtles gliding alongside a plethora of tropical fish recently escaped from despotic shower curtains. The requisite snorkel gear, swim mask, and noodley float toys are provided.
The sunset cruise departs from the Kewalo Basin Harbor, offering guests glimpses of the picturesque Waikiki skyline, Diamond Head, the south side of Oahu, and the “green flash,” which is shrouded in secrecy akin to that of the Knights Templar and KFC.
Island Magic Catamaran
With its pink sails filling with ocean breezes, the Island Magic Catamaran carries passengers out to sea in search of painted sunsets, playful humpbacks, and salty sprays. During sails, the crew carefully handles the 30-passenger vessel, allowing it to float lazily on glassy water or race against the island's fast-flowing swells. In addition to cruises, the team leads snorkeling adventures near Turtle Canyon, where sightseers can splash among green sea turtles before they finish hatching into boring, shell-less lizards. Sunset cruises depart 1.5 hours before the sun dips below the horizon, allowing passengers to admire the waves as they catch the last few bits of sunlight.
