If you sit at the front of the catamaran on a high wave day, the waves will splash right over you, completely soaking you, your hair, sunglasses and your drink on your way to Diamond Head. Not so rolly wavy on the return to Waikiki....More

A must do while in Waikiki. Can highly recommend the sunset sail at 5.30pm. Includes amazing views of Waikiki and Diamond head and excellent drinks included in the cost. Every one board was having fun and the crew were very helpful.

Less than $90 for 2 on Groupon, it's a pretty good deal. Mid week early afternoon daily, picture perfect and weather was fantastic. Even saw Sea turtle. Crews were great. Highly recommend.
