Choose from Three Options
- $99 for a day pass for two with a 60-minute rental of a standup paddleboard or kayak per person (a $218 value)
- $195 for a day pass for four with a 60-minute rental of a standup paddleboard or kayak per person (a $436 value)
- $109 for a day pass for one with a guided 30-minute introductory scuba dive (a $238 value)
With an all-day pass, guests can lounge, swim, and slide around the Waikiki Ocean Club, an offshore catamaran with ample deck space and an onboard grill. Each pass includes complimentary snorkel gear, water toys, deck chairs, and access to the floating trampoline, water slide, and diving platforms. Rented standup paddleboards and kayaks depart for scenic excursions from a water-level boarding platform.
During an introductory scuba dive, PADI-certified dive instructors explain equipment fundamentals before taking students below the surface. They acclimate guests to the underwater environment and point out different species of colorful marine animals. With one guide for every two participants, the trip prioritizes personal attention and safety.
Waikiki Ocean Club
A manmade island floats 300 yards off the shore of Waikiki Beach. Its inhabitants shriek as they plunge from its three 5- to 15-foot cliffs or plummet down a slippery slide into the ocean below. Intrepid sorts don snorkels and masks to mingle with the aquatic fauna that skirt its hulls. Others strike out aboard kayaks and standup paddleboards, steering past an ocean trampoline and its buoyant visitors. Those who choose to remain on the island's sun-drenched surface recline in teak lounge chairs, tipping back refreshments from three bars or munching on morsels fresh from the grill.
The founders of Waikiki Ocean Club might prefer to call it a catamaran, but at 145 feet long and 65 feet wide, the site functions as both an island and watery amusement park. As swimmers and sunbathers gather around its decks, scuba divers seek out marine life below the waves and helmet-diving excursions ensure that hair stays dry enough to kindle a fire. Jet skis, AquaQuads, and rigid inflatable boats ferry riders away from the club at exhilarating speeds; boat tours to secluded snorkeling locales and celebrities’ beach houses highlight resplendent scenery. After dark, the floating fairground transforms into a DJ-manned dance floor, awarding Friday-night guests with an unobstructed view of fireworks over Waikiki.
