Quick Details:

  • Island: OAHU
  • Duration: 1.5 hour


  • Reservations?: Recommended. In peak season, this can book out a few days in advance. 
  • Accessibility?: This is the ONLY docked catamaran on Waikiki beach. The others are beach catamarans (boarding by walking on the sand in the water – “wet boarding”). With a docked catamaran, you board directly by walking on the pier. 

Our Experience

Yes, yes, YES! This is one of my FAVORITE sunset cruises. It runs 1.5hours (either 5:00-6:30pm or 5:30pm-7:00pm, depending on season). This one is a docked catamaran (instead of a beach catamaran) which makes it super EASY to board!

If you’re looking for a casual sunset sail with drinks and appetizers, this might be the one for you! Unlike the “booze cruises,” I would consider this more of a cocktail cruise as it includes only two (2) drinks – though you can purchase more for $1 beer and $2 mixed drinks.  I didn’t see most have more than 2 or 3 drinks. It’s a nice option for a relaxed sail and attracts more of a laidback crowd whereas “booze cruises” typically are a more “party” atmosphere where it can be a race to drink as many as possible.

Personally, the sunset sail is more my speed! 🙂 

The appetizers were delish too! I love drinks and appetizers so this mix was perfect!


The Hilton cruises offer their sails a few times throughout the day. They have two snorkel options (10:30am-1:00pm and 1:30pm-4:00pm) as well!
