It's an early check-in for a morning calm cruise on the West side of the island of Oahu but it's worth it. The ocean is its calmest in the morning... less wind. Ocean Joy Cruises took us up the entire Waianae coast (west coast of Oahu), from Ko ‘Olina Marina to various points along Oahu's western coastline. You may see Oahu's Spinner Dolphins (Nai’a), Humpback Whales (Kohola) [in the winter season], Green Sea Turtles (Honu), and Flying Fish (Malolo) along the way! This ocean adventure allows you to sip on a tropical Mai Tai, ice-cold beer or other beverages and dine on a nice buffet lunch after snorkeling.
Aboard the Kai ‘Oli’Oli (translates to "Joy on the Ocean.") - a state-of-the-art power catamaran had wide swim steps making it easy to enter and exit the water.
