In this video, we went on an afternoon sail (3pm-4:30pm) on the Maita’i Catamaran. Similar to their sunset option, it’s an OPEN BAR which makes it arguably the BEST Waikiki Happy Hour! With great drinks and beautiful ocean views, I think we may have found our new favorite spot!

Our Experience

A lot of subscribers have asked where is the BEST place for Happy Hour in Waikiki. We decided to think out-of-the-box and head out to the water for our BEST WAIKIKI HAPPY HOUR. We jumped on the MAITAI CATAMARAN 3pm afternoon sail (1.5 hours) for a fun time!

And…it’s OPEN BAR. They have white wine, beer, selzers, mai tais (my favorite), and a mix of non-alcoholic drinks too. Our 3pm sail was 1.5 hours. Perfect timing to head over and grab an early dinner afterwards! They also offer an OPEN BAR sunset sail at 5pm.

  • Afternoon Delight Sail: 3:00pm-4:30pm
