About Ocean Joy Cruises
Ocean Joy Cruises will take you to the unspoiled Waianae coastline on the island of Oahu where dolphins, turtles and other Hawaiian sea life play and flourish on our 62' custom power catamaran. Take a dive into one of Hawaii’s best snorkeling spots, watch dolphins and whales (seasonal) as they glide through the cool waters of the Pacific, view the most stunning scenic vistas and perhaps, even watch the most romantic sunset on earth.

We saw spinner and bottlenose dolphins, whale spouts, sea turtles and tons of fish. Our guides were knowledgeable and the food and drink were satisfying. The photos were incredible - I’m so glad we paid extra for the photo package. Thank you!! We’ll definitely be back.

The captain and his two shipmates made us feel welcome and treated us like VIPs. The boat was clean and comfortable and the warm fresh water shower was awesome after snorkeling. The meal on the way back to the marina was great and the fresh pineapple dessert was a favorite for everyone in our party. Many times on these boat trips you get bag of chips and if lucky a dry turkey sandwich, but we had a hot chicken dish with sticky rice and a salad - one of better meals on the trip! The two ladies were very helpful tending bar, serving, and snorkeling. Mattie identified a couple of sea turtles for us and we were able to snorkel for a full hour! I highly recommend Ocean Joy Cruises!!

Wow - this trip far exceeded my expectations. We saw turtles, tropical fish, dolphin pods, flying fish, and an octopus. The number of guests was limited due to covid so we had lots of space to socially distance. The crew was amazing -- very friendly and knowledgeable (shout out to Captain Patrick, Theo, and Morgan). It felt like snorkeling on a private yacht with friends. Definitely purchase the photo package for amazing underwater pictures. The buffet was delicious and the crew serves drinks.
