Set sail on one of Honolulu's most popular booze cruises. Relax on board with a drink surrounded by Diamond Head and Waikiki & let your cares fade with the sun.
Sunset sailing is a staple activity in the Waikiki area, and highly recommended for first-time and return visitors to Hawaii alike. Along the shores of Waikiki Beach, dozens of catamarans and cruise boats checker the horizon, but Holokai remains a top choice for several reasons, including an open-bar policy that creates a fun atmosphere, and expansive deck space. Sailing on the Holokai Catamaran is, without a doubt, one of the best ways to enjoy the sunset in Oahu.
Open Bar (Unlimited drinks / including alcohol)
The sunset sail was very beautiful, but the bartending needs some improvement.

There's no way better way to enjoy a Hawaiian sunset than on a smooth sailing catamaran cocktail sail. Waikiki shows its best side in the last shimmers of daylight.

Make sure to get their signature shaker cup with the signature drink-Outrigger Cocktail! Sail was awesome and beautiful with the ...sunset! more
I participated w/ a bunch of friends, and it was one of the highlights of our Hawaiian vacation. We've never been on a saili...ng boat, and we absolutely LOVED it. Their original Mai Tai was the best. We had a great time onboard. Thanks! more
Wow!!! The guys were great, drinks were awesome and the music was perfect. The perfect party boat. Thanks guys, I'll see y...ou again next year. Mike more
I was always terrified of boats...but this sunset cruise was the best gift my husband could have ever given me! We had so much fun..., and I enjoyed the sea, from the sea! I have always been a beach lover, but sailing, WOW it's breath-taking. I would do it again if I ever have the good fortune to return. The crew made sure everyone had the best time. The drinks were great, and music too. It was one of the best times of my life. AND we could afford this one!! Thank you!! more

Fantastic sunset. From it's first touch of the sea, until it disappears below the horizon. Crew has but one goal, and that ...is to please all passengers. The quiet sound of the boat passing over the water under sail is soothing and romantic. more
Our captain was hilarious, the view was spectacular, the drinks were fantastic...you must do this! We made some new friends on th...e cruise who are locals, I told them I hadn't expected to meet and locals since I thought it was more of a tourist activity they said it's the best value for your money on Oahu! It was so much fun! A tip: bring along your camera, a few ones to tip the bar tender and $5 to purchase the "shaker" (which is optional). And for the ladies... YES! there is a potty on board! more
It was a blast! From what I can remember...
Really loved the cruise! Lots of laughs and fun! Beautiful views.
It is a lot of fun and a perfect way to end the day. The crew really makes this trip worth while - Captain John and Rabbit were A...WESOME!!! more
The cruise was great! The staff was very efficient, and helpful too. Ambiance onboard was great, with music and a unique openbar...! I recommand this cruise to everyone, couple or friends! more
We had a great time and would recommend this to other couples. The crew was excellent and very friendly.
Fun as always. This was our third time on this tour and we have loved it everytime.
My boyfriend and I went on the sunset cruise, and loved it. Thanks to the staff who were great and esspecially the bar man. We had... read some reviews that some people felt because it was free drinks the bar man was a bit slow. Not at all the case. As soon as we put our empty shaker on our head he ran over and filled it up:) Great cruise and we were treated to an awesome sunset. Thanks again guys we hope to do it again one day. Also our cruise left at 5pm so a word of warning given that the drinks are free and the bar man so efficient (we were happy to tip for such a great service) do try to have an early dinner as we may have gotten a little carried away with drinking which is not a great idea on an empty tummy :) more
Like always this is well worth your time and money!! I've been on this 4 times and everytime is a awesome time. See you nex...t time :) more
Great value & most enjoyable! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good time :)

This was like my 5th time and like always a BLAST!!
Christine was super cool at the check-in, she was so joyful and fired-up, loved this cruise! On-board crew was amazing and the dr...inks kept coming and coming. What a night - hahahaha! Yeah, WHAT A NIGHT! If you are in Waikiki you will WANT to take a sail out ... I went on a few and this one - by far - had the biggest drink cups! more
My friend decided to do this cruise and so we went along. We all had an incredible time! While we were sailing out in the deep blu...e ocean enjoying our tasty drinks and listening to the tunes, it just automatically becomes the perfect combination to get everyone in a mood to socialize, move around and even dance on-board! The best part about the whole cruise was the gorgeous sunset (besides the OPEN bar). I would definitely recommend this to my friends and to everyone I know!! Thank you so much for a wonderful time! Sailing + Drinks + Friends = GOOD TIMES! more
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This was one of the most fun experiences we've had here in Hawaii! We moved here this su...mmer and when my parents told us they were coming to visit again, I knew we had to do something special. And this was it! We had 6 adults and 5 kids between the ages of 7 and 11. The kids stole the show - they danced the whole time! It did not matter that there was drinking going on - the kids had a blast! How could they not? And of course we joined them in the dancing when the music got pumped up. Starting out with more
I took my friends from California to this cruise. Their mai tai is delicious and they are all you can drink! The whole cruise is... very relaxing and you get to enjoy the Honolulu coast. The timing is perfect as well. Highly recommended! more
We had an absolutely terrific time. The staff was great!
This was our second time on the cruise and we loved it more this time. The staff are very nice and helpful. Thanks for a great ti...me. more
I'm not big on touristy activities, but I was thoroughly surprised at how fun this sunset cruise was. My 2 daughters (8 and 5...) both had a blast. Being out in the open waters does wonders... next time I'm in Hawaii, I know what we're doing again. more
A wonderful experience from start to finish. From the moment you board, as a couple, family, or with friends, you truly relax... and unwind with fantastic crew, hospitality and the most amazing scenery you could possible wish for. Certainly a must to do do whilst in Waikiki. more
This Catamaran outting was definitely worth the price for anyone. My wife and I enjoyed the staff courtesy during the whole trip. ...They provide all you can drink choices which was great during the beautiful sunset ride. They played nice music from beginning to end which was relaxing. The Sunset is beautiful from out in the water coasting along. I would definitely go on this ride again when visiting here. more
We enjoyed this tour so much we decided to do it again our last evening in Waikiki! It was relaxing, exciting and fun at the same... time. Very professional crew on board. Cher more
We had an excellent time! Wanted to go again, but ran out of time. We will go back to Hawaii, and we will do this sunset booze cru...ise again! more
Great trip through the bay at Waikiki! The people make or break your experience, but everyone is there to have a great time, and ...you do, especially with the great musical accompaniment. Be sure to bring some extra cash for the picture at embarkment, and the special glass for your rum drink. Wonderful experience!!! more
THIS WAS A FUN THING TO DO, IN FACT WE WENT BACK FOR A SECOND TOUR! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR. lOVE THE MUSIC THEY PLAY!
Highly recommended. Very comfortable ride. Friendly crews. Sun set was unforgettable. Recommend to bring a wind breaker. It can ge...ts quite cold on the way back. more
The crew did a wonderful job. Travis was especially good at keeping all the guests adequately hydrated.
John & Kathy
I have visited Hawaii other times ! And always make it a point to go on this catamaran, I meet the owner back in1996 and had my f...irst ride than, his catamaran experience is the best! When visiting Hawaii this is the FIRST activity on my list of must do , also the same when my daughters visit, we love you! Thanks again for a wonderful evening while their celebrating our 35 yr wedding . more
Several years I was scare to get on this. But the crew really take care of us. Safely. Is number. As you sail music is nice a...nd loud. Crew pouring drinks Don't miss out. We will. Be there next year more
This was so much fun. Much more intimate than originally expected. About 16 people were on the sail (3 of them were staff). The... staff was super nice and informative. Fireworks were fun to watch. The view of the city lights was amazing. The bar is a cash only bar. This was well worth the money. We had a great time and consider this a must do. more
It was a relaxing cruise after a long work day! The crew was accomodating, frendly and professional. Grat time was had by all!
For the price this is an amazing little trip out on the ocean! Between the unlimited drinks with a decent selection and the great ...hosts this was just an all around good time. We even got to see whales! more
Participated in the sunset cocktail sail off Waikiki Beach. Was so plesantly surprised. Enjoyed it immensly. Saw whales as a bonus..., the Captain and crew were excellent and helpful with local information. Cocktails great, would highly recommend anyone to go and experience thesail off the beach at Waikiki. Thank you Veltra and Waikiki Rigger Catamaran sail. more
Good drinks!! Great hosts!! Would book again!!!!!!!
At first, I was a little sad—the catamaran was significantly smaller than the last one I had been on for a sunset cruise—however, ...it ended up being perfect! The island was beautiful, the sunset amazing, and we saw a whale and her baby whale no further than 200m from us! Fantastic! more
What fun the Waikiki Rigger Catamaran was! We did the Sunset Cocktail Sail. Unlimited drinks... I had their special drink (forgot ...the name) And it was great! The two young men running the catamaran were fun! They played 80's music and everyone enjoyed themselves. It was a small group so it was not overly crowded. We have nothing bad to say about this excursion. Highly recommended!!! more
This cruise was awesome! Booked it as a gift for my boyfriend and we had a blast. The crew was friendly, Ryan helped break the ice... with the group. I was especially looking forward to the open bar and was happily surprised by a DELICIOUS specialty cocktail they had pre made. We were lucky enough to see a whale breach not far from us while we were sailing. I will definitely recommend this to everyone I know- such a great way to spend a few hours. more
Most relaxing sail into a magnificent sunset. Surrounded by other vessels in the bay, we had perfect seat for the fireworks. With ...a slight glow in the sky, and a breeze rustling through our hair the sail was the perfect Friday night date. The specialty drink in the shaker is SO good and even big enough to share! Now I have a special cute little momento of that Serene night holding my one and only's hand while we sail on the darkening sea. Would absolutely do again. more
We had a great time, with a very attentive and fun crew, and the open bar was a real plus!
Wow oh wow! I took my beautiful family out on my husband and my favorite sunset cruise! The service, music, and overall experience... were incredible! What a great way to start off our trip. We have used this company several times and highly recommend this to others! more
Had a blast! Booze cruise all the way! Travis was our crew guy and he was awesome. Captain Terry was cool calm and collective and ...chillen the entire trip. Take a wind breaker jacket cuz it gets kinda chilly. Two thumbs up more
Beautiful cruise with great views. Fun crew and great atmosphere.
Guys were super friendly, the drinks were good and the view was awesome!!! It's worth the $
This tour was amazing, the guys on the ship were very chill and the views were incredible. I would go again if im in the area and ...to be able to drink on the boat was a great and fun idea. Its a must try for anyone! more
This was a lot of fun. Captain Steve filled us in as to what to expect and Chris was a great bartender and sailing mate. We went o...ut just past Diamond Head and had a beautiful view of everything. The other cruisers were laid back and the conversation was a lot of fun. You must do this at least once. more
First off, the employees at VELTRA went out of their way to ensure our booking was confirmed and they even delivered a confirmatio...n page for our sunset cruise directly to our hotel. Absolutely fabulous service all around ! When we arrived at the beach at the required check in time, friendly staff welcomed us as we waited to board. Once onboard, the crew went above and beyond to ensure everyone had an amazing time! Even though this is listed as a " Cocktail Sail " , it was also a very family friendly atmosphere for our teenage Daughter as well, she had a most enjoyable time and not to worry, they have a variety of free non- alcoholic beverages available onboard too. They offer a photo option of your family / group prior to boarding which we normally would not buy but the background and picture quality came out so incredible and was worth the 15 dollar fee ,they have the print in a cardboard folder waiting for you upon your return to shore if you decide to purchase it. This sunset cruise was a superb value for the low price , from the amazing Crew, to the smooth and safe sailing , and the fun music and relaxing atmosphere , it was a great way to meet so many other nice people on our Hawaiian Vacation! This was one of our top experiences on Oahu. Simply put, we cannot wait to do it again on our next visit to Waikiki! more
We had a really nice time! I got soaked with Waikiki ocean water, which was very refreshing. Worth the ride!
Marco & Alice
My wife and I purchased the tickets last minute, and we had a great time. We took the sunset cruise, and it was truly amazing to w...atch sunset on the sea. They had great music along with the ride on the way, they serve nice cocktail, the crew were in good control of the cruise and friendly. Note that some people got motion sick since we had waves on the sea. Take warm jacket if you decide to watch sunset as it gets cold and windy after sunset. more
So happy I selected this cruise! Our flight was delayed getting to Oahu on our scheduled sail day and Island Magic was able to... accomodate us by rescheduling us for the next day! On first meeting, crew was friendly and professional! The drinks flowed as promised and Chris, the drink captain was attentive and entertaining! I only wished they served some vodka on board! But I was ok with the white wine served! Beautiful sunset, great views, awesome time!! Hope to have time to do it again before we leave!! more
The Island Magic is the perfect name for the perfect Sunset Catamaran Cocktail Sail we had. The crew, drinks, and MUSIC was great.... The sunset was spectacular but the bonus was the full moon over Diamond Head. It was an amazing night. Mahalo for the wonderful memories. more
Soooo Much Fun!! And they are not stingy on the drinks.lol I thought I would have to be asking for drinks but they actually go aro...und often to refill your cup. I was never fully done with my drink. (And my friends and I were racing to finish them!) lol We were on the corner of the sailboat so we got soaked! We didn't mind getting wet though! Everyone must do this! So worth it! more
We loved the sunset ride. The crew members and caption were professional and fun. The music took us back to our teenage years. Ver...y fun and romantic. The views were awesome. God willing if we get a chance to come back to the island, we will do this again. A must do! more
Lovely cruise. Drinking champagne while watching a pair of humpback whales who just happened to show up "perform". The ...sunset was also nice. The staff and crew were fine and on time. more
We enjoyed the views and the hospitality of the crew! So do it again next trip!
Great time. Crew was fun and enjoyed the beverages and sunset. Would definitely do again.
We had an awesome moment having time with friends with a cocktail in front of the sunset. I will do it again in my next trip in wa...ikiki, for sure! more
Great time. Plenty of booze, great staff. We actually saw a humpback whale!! Highly recommended. Do the Friday sunset tour, then ...grab a drink at shore bird , and watch fireworks from the beach. Did I mention the humpback whale! more
Highly recommended! The whole group bonded over whale watching and guava juice/rum libations. The crew was friendly, accommodating..., and chill. Awesome experience! more
We took our 3 children aged 2,4 and 9 and we all had a fabulous afternoon. The staff are friendly and professional and it was a re...al highlight of our stay. It's a must do! more
The crew was friendly and entertaining throughout the whole time. Perfect package for what we did
We really had a great time- friendly staff and plenty of room on the boat- not crowded. We would definately do it again
Great time on the boat! Drinks were good, people were nice & a whale and her baby gave us a show! Not to mention the sunset wa...s just great! Will surely do it again!! more
This sail was very beautiful and relaxing. We were able to see the sun go down, ride the waves and have cocktails from the open b...ar. I would recommend this to anyone looking to relax on the ocean and have a drink. more
fun time! we even saw Whales ! Even though it was cloudy and we saw no sunset we had such a great time we forgot about it!
Great crew and great experience. Don't miss out on heaven!
I booked for myself and 10 friends a cocktail sunset cruise with Island Magic in May 2015. The event was to celebrate my 50th - a...ll 10 of us rocked up with our birthday t-shirts and in the mood for something special. The cruise, drinks, crew, view and everything was wonderful, could not fault anything it was such a GREAT way to start my fiftieth celebrations, chilled out, relaxing and terrific fun. Thank you! more
This booze cruise was great. I've been on it twice and had a pleasant experience both times. Everyone was having a good time ...even the guys on the boat and captain are awesome people! Must do if your in Waikiki and you want alcohol. more
My fiancee and I had a great time on the Sunset Sail. The check in process was very easy and fast. The 2 man crew were great as ...well. We enjoyed the great views and drinks from the water. I just wished the weather would have cooperated more. It was pretty cloudy and rained a little. However, we still had a great time overall! I would definitely recommend. more
Such a great sail. Well looked after. So much fun.
We had a great time! I would recommend it for a fun night.
My wife and I had a great time on the sunset cruise. Made some great new friends form Germany and Australia, and the drinks kept c...omin'! We would recomment this one to anyone looking for fun on the water. It's a little more than some others, but that helps keep the kids away. If you are looking for a booze cruise without the screaming children, this is the one! more
Fantastic! The crew was so nice and the trip was great. The only regret we have is that we waited until the end of our vacation to... take it. Otherwise we would've opted for another excursion, e.g. sunrise cruise, fireworks. We will most certainly use this group again when we return to Waikiki. more
We took our friend who was visiting from AZ and we all had the best time. Good drinks, good service, and good company.
My fiancé & I absolutely loved every second of this sunset cruise. The staff is fantastic, the drinks are amazing, & the v...iews are just perfect. We have already decided on our next trip, we will for sure be doing this again. If you're smart, you'll take them up on the offer prior to boarding the boat. They offer a shaker with a house cocktail which you get before boarding to pregame but it also gets you on the boat before anybody else (plus the drink is so so good) more
+ The sunset is beautiful + Drink as much as you want! + Crew was friendly and we stayed a bit longer + The extras: they take a... nice photo of you more
We took 20 people on this cruise as part of our pre-wedding, Welcome to Hawaii event. It was absolutely perfect. The drinks were f...lowing, the crew members were friendly and outgoing, and the boat was big enough that we didn't feel jammed in - we had plenty of room to spread out and mingle with the whole group. Would definitely recommend this activity to others. Totally worth the cost! more
Incredible view and friendly staff, a highlight of your trip
New, clean catamaran, friendly staff, unlimited coctails, great experience, highly recommended
My partner and I went on this sunset cruise. We had a wonderful time!! It's about 2 hours out. The staff was awesome and made... sure our drinks stayed full. It was one of our highlights of our trip. We will do this again and recommend people do this. LOTS OF FUN!! The sunset out there was so beautiful. A must do!! more
The title is a little confusing when booking the Friday sunset cocktail sail ...... kinda sounds like you're getting the fire...works at the end. Unfortunately, that's a totally different sail, but would have been nice. The sail kind of just goes back and forth between the Hilton and the Westin until sunset then goes in. I wasn't fond of the run drink they served, but it comes with the price. All in all, the captain and 1 person crew/bartender were accommodating. I would recommend it. more
We did the activity our first night and Hawaii and it started the trip off right. We had a wonderful time!
Everything was excellent! The weather didn't cooperate, but the captain was nice enough to offer opportunities to reschedule... for another night without any charges. Unfortunately this was our last chance to go, and thankfully they were up for it if we were! Everyone was so friendly and the drinks were great. The service was very prompt and even with the monsoon weather we were having it was still an awesome time on the water. We had a blast!!!! more
I've never expected such a great things on this because I cancelled other cruise activity (Atlantis) and there were not enoug...h reviews on Holokai Catamaran Sunset cruise. But right now, I strongly recommend this for everyone. I don't know how romantic and luxurious big cruises are, but can say definitely NOT BETTER THAN THIS!! Crews were nice, cruise duration was enough and people were not crowed so that we could enjoy our time & place enough. If I visit Hawaii again, I'll do this again. Thanks for your effort!! Eddie. more
I had a great time on the cruise! I would highly recommend it for anyone who likes to drink! We had a beautiful scenery and the bo...at was so well maintained! The two gentelman that were in charge of the boat were very hospitable and took great care of us! more
This was, by far, the best 50 dollars I spent on my trip to Hawaii. Captain Ryan and Philippe were fun, safe, and on top of custom...er service! more
My friends and I had the BEST night in Hawaii with this combo :D The drinks flowed freely (Get the shaker! TOTALLY WORTH IT!), the... music was kicking, the views were awesome and the crew was on IT! We wanted a to see the sunset and have some cocktails AND have a delicious dinner, and this fit the bill perfectly. Rather than shelling out $100 or more for a dinner cruise (basically a floating restaurant), we got to enjoy the sunset while under sail, had all of the booze we could drink (mimosas, mai tais and more!) and then had a yummy dinner that we got to grill up ourselves. Woot! Woot! The dinner was hella tasty and it was great that we got the combo since I saw people walk up to the hostess at the restaurant and they got told that there would be an hour and a half wait. WHAT!? We checked in and got escorted right to our table. Yup! Yup! Definitely a great choice for anyone looking to have a great island night in Waikiki~ more
It is better than expected, it was wonderful. Thank you.
Great time had by all, we went on Christmas Day, highly recommend to all, friendly and fun staff
We made our own fun. I had to drive, so no alcool for me, but the gf got drunk with their delicious cocktail and champagne. It was... friday, so we stayed on the waikiki beach waiting in line for the beach restaurant ShoreBird, watching the fireworks and coming inside to grill our own fosh afterward. It was a great night. I recommend going on a friday. We wanted to go to Chinatown after, for the first friday of the month (they have a celebration) but we got lost, and it was too late. But the sunset sail itself was great. Not many seats, so we just sat on the floor. more
Nice bar and restaurant. Buffet salad bar with hot items, grill your own meat or seafood. Fun activity.
Beautiful night, great ride, well organized, good booze and tunes. A must to do if staying in Waikiki
Great staff and chill crowd, fantastic views of Waikiki's skyline, even saw a whale! Would highly recommend this to anyone vi...siting Oahu! more

My boyfriend and I went on the Sunset Cocktail Sail on the Holokai Catarmaran, and it was absolutely perfect! The crew was so welc...oming and so much fun, the drinks were never empty, and the views were absolutely stunning. Our Airbnb host recommended this activity to us and I'm so glad he did! It was fun, romantic, and perfect for site seeing. I highly recommend! more
June 2015 we did this sunset cruise and hands down said it was the best part of our trip. March 2016 we planned another trip back ...to Waikiki and this was the first thing we booked. When you check in for the cruise you will have your picture taken before you board, with Diamond Head in your background. You can buy it at the end of the cruise for $20 dollars. We now have bought 2 of these pictures which are now hanging up in our house because the quality is so great! The selection of drinks is great but oh my goodness you have to try the boat cocktail. Hands down one of my favorite drinks now and I craved that cocktail ever since our first cruise. But beware they have a punch and you will be feeling great on no time! Thanks to the crew for a awesome experience once again. You guys are awesome!! This last cruise was the best because it was windy enough to sail, we saw a blue whale and it was a perfect evening. Cocktail in hand! One thing that I also enjoy about this cruise is by the end of the cruise you've became friends with half the boat and had a amazing time while enjoying the view. Thanks again Holokai Crew until next time! Cheers! more
What a wonderful experience! The crew on the Holokai did an exceptional job of taking care of us. We even got to meet the fabulo...us owner of the Holokai, Soo. We would highly recommend watching the beautiful Waikiki sunset aboard the newest catamaran on Waikiki! It was also fun eating at the Shorebird. We had a table right near the beach. A few steps out from the restaurant and you can see the Hilton fireworks show! All in all, a great experience! A big Mahalo to Soo and the crew of the Holokai! more
Roy and Andrea
It is worth more than just a sail boat! There is no better way to enjoy an afternoon with gorgeous sunset at Waikiki! We liked the... view, the cocktail, the captain...almost everything that we experienced. Sure will try it again if I'm back to Waikiki. more
My sister and I had the best time. Didn't see any fireworks, but that really was ok. If go back to Hawaii we will definitel...y be doing this again. The captain & mate were very entertaining. WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!! more
Had an awesome time on the boat! The sunset was pretty and the drinks were awesome! Had a blast!
had the BEST time, we went on for a friend's 21st and they made us feel really special. great music, absolutely stunning suns...et, yummy drinks, well priced overall and the staff were really nice and interactive. thanks for having us and humouring us even when we were really annoying and loud. MAHALO YALL more
We had a lovely time on the cruise, staff was nice, and drinks were tasty
Amazing views, staff was very fun and friendly and the drinks were delicious. Best value sunset cruise in Waikiki
This is a must do. So much fun and absolutely stunning views! Captain and co-captain were amazing!
Angie from Alaska
We had a great time but did notice there were no fireworks and we booked the fireworks sail?
The Sunset Cocktail Tour was fantastic. The tour guide and bartender are both friendly and helpful without being overbearing in an...y way. The drinks were delicious and you absolutely couldn't beat the view. The ship was very spacious and we had an awesome time. Totally worth the price! more
You will have your own privacy during the tour. The Captain and Bartendie was nice. I like their signature cocktail. STRONG!!!
First time on this cruise and it was awesome. The crew members were friendly and they made it a point to reach out to everyone. Th...e drinks were fantastic and the view was spectacular. Would definitely recommend it. more
How wonderful sailing around Waikiki. Staff were so welcoming, I highly recommend this activity

Would highly recommend this trip, was my first night in Hawaii and what a way to start!! Cocktails are absolutely delicious and ne...ver ending!! The crew are just freaking awesome and everybody is there for a good time so it's just smiles and happy people all round! Would definitely do this again if I come back... Beautiful sunset while with my beautiful girl meeting awesome people! Thank you more
The catamaran was so much fun! You linger in the Waikiki harbor and wait for the sun to go down. Norhing like a sunset with Di...amondhead in the distance. The cocktails were very good and the crew funny .... all in all, it was a wonderful hour and a half on the ocean more
We went on the Catamaran sunset cruise during our honeymoon and had a fabulous time! The captain and bartender were awesome and ke...pt the drinks coming! We would recommend this to anyone! more
The sunset sail was great! The crew members are professional, gracious and funny. The trip was one of the highlights of our va...cation. Dolphins, Diamond Head and double rainbows over land and sea made this a truly wonderful July the 4th! more
Great time !! Would do it again . My family and I all enjoyed. The crew was awesome!!!
We had a great time on the sunset cruise! The kids really enjoyed sitting near the frontbofvthe boat getting splashed while we rel...axed and enjoyed the view. We were lucky enough to see some dolphins as well! Would definitely recommend! more

My family had a great time! Crew was amazing, boat wasn't crowded and the views were beautiful. Almost booked a second crui...se on our trip. more
this cruise was the best part of our honeymoon! Delicious, (yet strong) drinks, great energy and hospitality by the staff, and ama...zing overall time! Several dolphins swam along side our boat during the cruise-it was unforgettable! We want to go again!!! more
The scenery was breathtaking. One of the highlights of my entire trip to Hawaii.
We had an awesome time and we'll be back next year.
This cruise was perfect. The crew were so much fun, and clearly wanted nothing but the best for the guests. Awesome time! Loved e...very second! more
I bought this as a surprise birthday gift for someone and we both thought it was great. The crew on the catamaran were wonderful a...nd the ukelele players were perfect. The only suggestion I would make, would be seperating the party people screaming almost the whole trip, as a seperate Sail (I was hoping for a low key sail lol) but otherwise fantastic! more
We had a wonderful time on this sunset cruise. The crew were great and looked after one of our party, an elderly woman with mobili...ty issues, very well. Great sunset, great fun. more
A lovely Friday night cruising off the beach to see the fireworks. The crew were very professional and the bar was well run. High...ly recommended on Waikiki Beach more
We had everything on our sunset cruise - a sun shower, a beautiful rainbow right over Diamond Head, a magnificent sunset and a ful...l moon. We also had the amazing Dave and Philippe and a great bunch of fellow travellers. The drinks and the fun flowed! We'll definitely recommend this trip to family and friends. We'll be back for another cruise next time we are in Waikiki. more
Anne & Harvey
This was an awesome trip. We had quite some waves on the ocean but the boat felt save all the time. The people are nice. Good dri...nks. We had a great sun set. more
This was a lot of fun, and staff were super friendly! Watching the sun set on the water was a great experience. Only tiny issue wa...s there was only one cocktail, and it was premade. But there was heaps of other options to choose from. more
Grace & Bethany
We had a fantastic time. The crew were professinal and friendly. There was a good mix of people. And the views were beautiful.
Great hosts, great craft! Loved every moment!!!
Great staff, excellent selection of drinks at the bar! I've been on a lot of tours like it but this stood out as one of the b...est. more
The guys were really friendly and sincerely wanted everyone to have a good time. We got pretty drunk off that uh oh juice and the ...sunset was beautiful. more
We had the best time. The crew was great and we met some good friends. We will definitely be doing this again.
I had a blast. I would recommend this boat in a heartbeat and would do it again next time I come.
The cruise was the best part of the entire Waikiki trip!
We loved the cruise from the moment we boarded to the moment we stepped off! The crew and catamaran were top notch and professiona...ls at having fun! We were celebrating with my son and daughter in law and eveverything was amazing and entertaining! more
We did the sunset sail our last night in Oahu and had a blast! Cruising around the water in Hawaii with open bar, can't go wr...ong! more
This was my second time going. Was a lot of fun and will do it again in the future. Be sure to call them direct if you are trying ...to book last minute more
Definitely try to do this as a group. Most go on it for the open bar, which is a few beers, champagne, one wine and a mixed drink ...that they have in a keg. I would recommend for a big group, but not for a couple more
We had a great time! Met some awesome people! The crew was fantastic! Amazing views
It is a fun tour starting right from Waikiki Beach. The tide was high when we left so it was a bit if a challenge to get on board ...but once on it, it was a great evening. A good adult punch and local beer was all it took ... more
Great crew, seats, not just netting, beautiful views from the sea. Added surprise was the friendliness of the passengers even befo...re the bar opened! Met almost everyone on board, laughed almost non-stop. BTW, despite what their website says, there IS A BATHROOM on board. Great experience! more
Was a great experience. Was extremely fun. Crew was very friendly, funny, and dedicated to giving a great experience. Definitely p...lanning on repeating this. more
Had a great time and the ride was amazing with seeing Waikiki from afar...
The sunset cruise was the best thing on Oahu for my honeymoon. This activity was so relaxing.
Such a good way to spend the late afternoon Phillipe and the other guy (so sorry can't remember your name) we're complet...e legends!!! Perfect way to start the party in Hawaii. more
What an amazing experience! Friedlist crew and spectacular view not to mention tasty cocktails and a bathroom ( there really is a ...bathroom and they are trying to fix the error that says one is not available) we had such a great group of singles and families! I would go again and again! They made us feel ohana and again...the views where once in a life time experience! more
Amazing staff! The trip was amazing! The ease of changing a reservation was also a huge plus.
A group of us took the Holkai Catamaran for a friend's bachelor party. We had a great time. The staff really made it fun and ...met some great people on the cruise as well. Would highly recommend! more
This was a fun cruise...good music, great staff, fun atmosphere...we were especially happy and grateful to the staff, as we were a... group of 8, celebrating a friend's 60th birthday. Three of us had neglected to get tickets in time, and were on standby, hoping that we'd all get on the boat. Luckily, we were all able to go on the cruise, making this a special event for our friend...thanks so much, Holokai Catamaran! more
We had a great time on the boat sailing around diamond head and the Waikiki area. The two man crew was super helpful and a joy to ...be around. There was a variety of beers onboard along with a homemade concoction of mango and a variety of alcohols. Don't exactly know what was in it..but it was fantastic. The boat was fully packed, but we all had a great time riding the waves and enjoying all the views! more
We had a wonderful time on the Holokai! The captain and crew were very funny and asked many times if they could get us anything. I... would highly recommend this. It was one of our favorite activities while in Hawaii. more
It's was a very fun time. The crew were competent as well as entertaining. The crowd were of varied ages, so it made everyon...e comfortable and included. A beautiful evening in Waikiki. My wife and I went on the cruise instead of a luau for our 34th anniversary and we have absolutely NO regrets. I highly recommend it more
THE EXPERIENCE WAS BEYOND GREAT AND ME AND FAMILY HAD A WONDERFUL TIME
Friendly fun staff and a fantastic sail even though the sunset was not spectacular.
The crew was awesome! Michelle was a fantastic bartender and we had so much fun on the cruise! Would highly recommend for a relaxe...d fun time. more
Highly recommended!! Had so much fun!! Must do while in Hawaii!
We've been to Waikiki many times and have done a few catamaran tours. This tour was by far the best! Very personalized, hi...ghly recommend the drink shaker and VIP boarding. Captain Rich and his crew Michelle are amazing, Will definitely do this tour again. Highly recommend this tour. more
Frank and Dee
We do this every time we come back! Great crew, great drinks and the sunset is always amazing
We had a wonderful time. Staff was great! Would do it again!
Beautiful sights along the waters! Enjoyed every second on the boat. Met some pretty cool people from around the world and had an ...awesome time just relaxing and taking in the views while having some drinks...aloha more
I booked this sunset cruise for my man and I for our last night in Hawaii. I wish we would've done this first!!! But saved th...e best for last. So much fun and the crew was amazing. Will book again. more
We attended the sunset cocktail cruise and had a lot of fun! Both the bartender and captain were very friendly. We had been on sev...eral other sunset cruises and this one is easily one of the best. We encountered some waves which everyone enjoyed. Try the Holokai cocktail! more
Best sunset sail we have been on! Crew was awesome!
We had one of the best experiences! So much fun and it's something I will never forget! Defiantly would recommend!
This was so much fun and our hosts amazing, Ryan and Felipe. Thank you so much for a great start to our honey moon.
Beautiful and fun. The crew was awesome! Such a great way to end the day!!!
Todd & Jen
2nd time out with the boys. Fantastic night service was amazing again. How they looked after the people that felt sick was incredi...ble. You have amazing staff. Good to meet other people from all over the world Mel and Tara Melbourne Australia Xxx more
The sunset is of course breathtaking, it was amazing to see Oahu island at dusk, and the crew is fun and engaging. I would love to... do it again. more
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. It's great to see Waikiki from this vantage point. The Skipper and crew we...re excellent, they really make the experience an enjoyable one.. There was no skimping on drinks either. more
Had an amazing Time the entire crew was amazing!! Will def be booking again when I'm back in Hawaii!!
We had about 40 of our family members and it was so much fun! Great experience and would definitely do it again! Fun crew. Thank y...ou more
Would go again. It was great and we had lots of fun
Crew was great and entertaining. Weather was perfect for the sunset. My wife and I had a great time.
Great cruise!!! So picturesque and so much fun!!! Recommend ++++ met some great people!
It was awesome! The Captain was hilarious! Drinks were delicious! The view of Waikiki from the boat was great, and the sunset w...as beautiful. Met some lovely people. Highly recommend!! more
this boat ride was absolutely amazing. I would do it again. I loved that you can book it all online and show up the day of, super ...easy. I called them to get clarification and they were more than helpful. The ride was more than expected. Both of the guys working were energetic and funny. They made the ride very fun, while still giving everyone their own time to hang out and take photos. The open bar was obviously a great perk also. I really enjoyed the sunset cruise and would love to try one of the other ones they do. more
We had a good time! We had a large group, can't wait to come back to Honolulu to do it again! Fantastic crew. Thank you
The staff were so friendly and accommodating. Very willing to take photos of you and provide information.
We loved this cruise! It was so much fun, the drinks were great & kept coming. Definitely recommend it.
Great time with a great crew! Yummy cocktails, too!
Very impresssed with the cat, cruise and the staff.
Great boat. Fantastic, funny, best crew. Cold beers. And beautiful sunset. Highly recommend!
Just awesome it was my friends birthday, and she loved it.
Had an amazing time with Phillipe and Zach! They kept it relaxed, fun, and super funny! Such a fun cruise! Funny pictures with cos...tumes, constant jokes, great music, and Zach the bartender was running around grabbing people drinks left and right! I hardly had to ever go back to the actual bar to grab a drink. Incredible time! Would do it again in a heartbeat! Thanks guys! more
Friendly staff, great service, great view, moved the boat around so every side had a great view
I was struggling to find a birthday gift for my husband which coincidentally falls on Valentine’s Day. As we were traveling to Oah...u the next week form Australia I purchased 2 tickets for the Sunset Cocktail Cruise online, printed them and put them in his birthday card. WOW! What a great success that was, we had a wonderful time. Weather was perfect, service and cocktail supply was 4 star and I would recommend this Cruise to all. The captain and his mate were attentive and entertaining, we were lucky enough to see whales in their natural habitat along with the magical sunset we were promised. This was my 8th trip to Waikiki but I had never been on this Catamaran Cruise previously. We would definitely go again. It was so easy to purchase online, prepay and print the receipt it made the perfect gift from the other side of the Pacific. Mahalo. more
The crew on this sunset sail was so fun an energetic. Boat was beautiful and was definitely a must do!
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed the sailing adventure! The staff was funny and helped make it a great time with lots of laughs.... We went with the all-you-can-drink option for a little extra and it was a great choice. Sail lasted an hour and a half which was plenty of time to drink enough to make it worth it. We enjoyed it so much that as soon as we got off the sail we went right up to the check-in umbrella and signed up for another sail the next day. more
This cruise was a great way to start our two week vacation in Hawaii! We had a great time although the way the gentlemen at the c...heck in referred to it as the booze cruise, you had wave down a crewmen in order to get a drink or a refill! We had a great sunset and a full moon rising which made it extra special. more
Free alcohol (unlimited) and the ocean? Awesome time! One of the best values on my trip. Paid WAY more for WAY less one some ot...her ones! more
Our sunset cruise started off on the wrong foot (literally) when we were forced to take our shoes off and wade into the surf to ge...t onto the sail boat. We were unprepared because that's not described in the activity description. However, once we got past that we had a nice time. It's the only way to get a great look at the Waikiki skyline. It was a nice comfortable, slow and relaxing cruise. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly. There's a lot of alcohol consumption, so I wouldn't recommend bringing children. more
Overall a great value and great time. Our 19 year old daughters were a bit bored. Can't blame them... They were jealous. The ...drinks were flowing and the captain and bartender did a great job keeping everyone topped off! Ship was beautiful. Nice circuit of the cruise around Waikiki and Diamond Head. Reccomend highly. more
Was a nice time. The mixed drink that was served had too much sugar. I think it is best to stick with wine or beers, or at least ...have a drink that is more rich with booze and not so sweet. more
Beautiful way to spend the sunset. A warning to other ladies: no bathroom + strong, unlimited drinks, so plan accordingly.
I had a really good time on the Waikiki Rigger. Great staff, great drinks, fun folks onboard the boat, nice music! It was a litt...le cloudy out at times and rained on us for a bit, but just looking at the city while in the water, the beautiful shots of Diamond Head Cater, other boats passing us make for a truly fun evening. I had a great time and something again that didn't tie up your whole evening. I hope do this again in a heartbeat! more
Our sunset catamaran cruise was very nice. We were promptly greeted and seated on time, offered our choice of beverages and entert...ained by both passengers and crew. The cruise itself was calm and uneventful providing an ideal view of the coastline and the sunset. Travis (crew) bent over backwards to ensure all had a positive experience! more
Sandra - from VA
Staff was efficient and courteous. The trip was well worth the time and money.
The activity is about an hour and being such a wide vessel motion sickness is not an issue. The shoreline was amazing and the fire...works were nice. It is petty much what you'd expect being on a catamaran. more
Ian & Tasha
Good time, reasonably priced, not much on the varity of drinks
Delightful evening sail with an open bar. It was FUN and a gorgeous sail. Loved the crew. Great job guys!
Lots of fun. Never waited for a refill. Only one type of cocktail for the cruise but it was good. Excellent view of the sunset.
Really enjoyed the sail - is the right amount of time and a great way to see Waikiki. Our daughter enjoyed going over the waves an...d watching sailing in action. Only problem was the on board music. Loud 60/70s rock music - what a way to spoil a peaceful sail! Got to be a better playlist out there for sailing - or how about listening to the waves?! more
Had a great time on this cruise, meet really cool people, would recommend doing this at beginning of trip so you get the opportuni...ty to hang out with new friends. Drinks were always full :) Would definitely go again. more
Lots of drinks and laughs and a beautiful sunset cruise – shame one of the other passengers stole my flip flops when we went ashor...e! more
The only thing that I would suggest is a variety of different music playing while on the cruise (more up to date selections). Othe...r than that, it is a good time. more
Fun way to spend a friday evening. Great sailing experience. Met some other friendly travellers. The drinks were certainly flowing...! If I were to do it again I would have 2 shakers, instead of 3!! more
The crew members was really nice. We were running late and they waited for us. We saw an amazing sun set. Wish they had more vari...ety on the alcohol. more
It was great. Lovely people amacing sunset and delicious cocktails...
We thoroughly enjoyed meeting all the people on this Cruise. Although they only offered one mixed drink and a few different types ...of beers and wine. They did set out to help everyone have a good time and the music was excellent. Thank you and keep up the good work. more
The crew was nice and competent. But, two groups of early 20's drove the music played by the Captain. Frankly, I didn't ...take the sunset cruise to listen to music with F- Bombs and MF. more
My husband and I did this experience as part of our honeymoon. When we checked in the girls were very helpful. However, while the ...catamaran experience itself was amazing...when we checked in the girls who helped us forgot to validate our parking voucher. My husband and I were forced to buy something at the hotel bar to receive validation after we got off the catamaran. We were very disappointed in this because in the excursion description it says that validation was included. more
Booked the Holokai Catamaran for the first night of our trip. Was relaxing cruising up and down Waikiki beach. Great views of Di...amond Head as well. Plenty of photo opportunities. The night we went the ocean was calm and we were able to stand up on the deck the entire time. No chance of getting sea sick. The captain even let my wife steer the boat (great photo opp). Complimentary alcohol, but a healthy tip makes all the difference. Be sure to know where the pickup location is (on the beach), because you don't want to be late and "miss the boat". Perfect excursion to start off our trip. Cruise returns just in time for dinner. I'm returning to Waikiki in November and will be booking this cruise again. more
The captain and crew were great and they made the cruise enjoyable. The ride was nice even tho' it did not go to sunset, pro...bably about 1/2 hour short. Major complaint was that the wine selection was WEAK. No red!! more
It was fun night! Loved the sail and atmosphere. The crew was terrific. I think I would enjoy the music be a little louder and the... boat could go a little faster and further out. Other than that, it was a great sail! more
We had a really good time, Great crew, awesome scenery, fab cocktails - Just wish it lasted a bit longer..
Very fun, we had a great time. Definitely the best way to enjoy a true Hawaiian sunset.
We had a great time on the sunset cruise, we got some awesome photos, met really cool people and did something we wouldn't no...rmally do! Only tips I would give is to go to the toilet first (the one on board is cramped and it can get bumpy, so more room for unlimited drinks) and make sure you check the meeting location carefully first because there's 2 Outrigger hotels and that confused us alot. more
The cruise was fun. We had an amazing time on the boat with a funny crew. The tour is the money worth and I can recommend it.
The boat lost engine power in the middle of going back to shore. Apparently there was some water in the fuel so we ended up stayi...ng out till about 8:30 or 9:00 with screaming children. It was fun other than the engine giving out. They said it had never happened before which is probably true but nevertheless, it wasn't as pleasant as I had hoped. more
We had fun, didn't expect this to be a drinking cruise with a bunch of your party goers, but it was fun.
Well there are no seats and you have to climb to get in and sit on floor, then they sail and you can move around. We thought ther...e would be seats, but this only had benches. You have to be fit. We thought we could take my grandson, when we got there he couldn't possibly go. Also it's the Outrigger II, not the Outrigger. We showed up at Outrigger and were told it's a 10 minute walk. We are very unhappy. We bought 8 tix and 3 people didn't go and 2 who went got sea sick. There should be warnings as to what you are getting into. more
Crew was nice. Somewhat disorganized at the beach. I don't like when they take pictures to sell you.
Group of people 69-86 years went out to do this and because a handful felt waters was not calm elected not to do this. I was notwi...th them but had done it in the past and found it to be enjoyable more
Overall it was a fun activity. Clean boat, good drinks, friendly staff, etc. However it was a bit presumptuous on their part to re...quire your picture be taken for an upsell opportunity before you could board the boat. They had all the guests lined up for pictures like grade school photo day. Cheesy! Then of course after the cruise came the sales pitch the second you stepped back on shore. I was literally chased down the beach....LOL. Well it is the 21st century now, so many of us just used our smart phones instead at no additional cost. Other than this odd irritation I had an enjoyable cruise. Thank you. more
I sailed with 15 family members and that made the experience very special. The open bar was less than we expected but the staff wa...s very nice and pretty entertaining. more
The scenery was obviously beautiful and the crew seemed very knowledgable and capable. However, I have not been on a cruise like ...this before and conduct of other passengers and comments by crew about drinking and such were inappropriate in the presence of children. The enviroment was definitely not a family one. I was disappointed because my children did not enjoy it like I thought they would because they felt uncomfortable. more
We took off on time after being greeted by the 2 man crew and the bar was opened after a short explanation of what drinks were ava...ilable which consisted of soft drinks, beer, wine and some concoction in a gallon jug. The crew mentioned several times that tips were appreciated even though there was a jar in plain site marked "TIPS". Shortly after we set sail the bar tender put up a looped message that said, "Aussie's OI, OI, OI TIP!!! TIP!!! TIP!!!" This played over the entire trip and most of us thought it was quite tacky and unnecessary to single out our friends from Australia. Even though the sail was nice this sad action from the crew took away from it. 50 passengers paid $55 each to take this sail so it seems to many of us that it's not necessary to beg for tips especially when all he did was pour a drink from a plastic gallon jug. People from Australia have always been our friends and the Aussie's we sat by were not amused nor were we. We come to Honolulu every year but probably won't do this event again. more
