Pricing & Availability


COVID-19 UPDATE: Only the Deluxe package is currently operating this summer. As a special through the end of 2021, it will now include an extra 1/2 lobster at no extra cost (so total 1.5 lobsters per person). The Casual package is available beginning in September. This page will be updated when additional days and packages are made available.

The cruise is implementing rigorous sanitation and health protocols for the safety of guests and staff. Please see FAQ below for more details.


Embark on a memorable evening cruise on the calm waters off of Honolulu with tropical-inspired drinks, a delicious full course dinner, live Hawaiian entertainment, and a beautiful sunset and city skyline as a backdrop. 

Choose between 4 dining options, ranging from a budget-friendly casual buffet dinner to luxury fine dining, with separate levels on this impressive four-story boat allowing for distinct experiences. Scroll down to the table below to compare. 

[Currently suspended] On Fridays, enjoy an hour-longer cruise in order to see the weekly fireworks display off Waikiki Beach. Note: Friday's cruise does regularly sell out well in advance, and it is a higher price. If you are only interested in the Friday Buffet package (which can sell out months in advance) and are at least 5 people, please email us to inquire about availability.

TravelShack's Choice

Why we recommend this option over others
  • Easy dry harbor boarding, versus getting wet and sandy boarding from Waikiki Beach
  • The large vessel, which includes 3 types of stabilizers, is much more stable than smaller boats or catamarans, which is important if you are prone to seasickness, especially during the winter months when water conditions can be more variable
  • Multiple experiences to choose from for different preferences and budgets
  • Chef prepared dishes served to your table (for 3 out of the 4 packages)
  • Hawaiian cultural entertainment
  • Hawaii’s only ADA compliant vessel with 2 elevators so guests of all abilities can enjoy

The evening was wonderful. Everything was well organized right from the pick up to the drop off. Lots of staff directing people where to go and never left wondering. The steak was done to a medium and never ending crab legs. Then Friday night fireworks to end the evening off.
