Contrary to popular belief, boats are actually much safer than cars, which inexplicably sink every time you drive them on water. Take a proper water road ride with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $30 for a whale-watching tour for one child ($60 value)
- $40 for a whale-watching tour for one adult ($80 value)
The cruises take place from December through May, departing from the Haleiwa Boat Harbor at noon. During the 2.5-hour cruise, passengers get the chance to see humpback whales play and nurse their young in their breeding grounds on the beautiful north shore of Oahu and listen to their singing on an underwater hydrophone. The tour gets close enough to ocean life to provide excellent views, while keeping far enough away so passengers remain safe and dry. Adults are required to wear life jackets and hold children 4 years old or younger at all times in accordance with Coast Guard regulations.
North Shore Catamaran Charters
Up to 19 passengers sit comfortably on North Shore Catamaran Charters' 40-foot sailing vessel, the Ho’O Nanea, which Captain Don Germain steers along Oahu’s scenic shores. The catamaran’s name means “to pass the time in ease and comfort,” an apt phrase, as guests will find the day quickly and serenely passes when they’re onboard. North Shore can charter the boat for snorkeling adventures in Waimea Bay or for romantic BYOB sunset sails.
