Overview

Experience the underwater world from the comfort of our brand new glass bottom boat featuring four extra large, magnified underwater viewing windows, clean bathrooms, and shaded seating for up to 50 guests. Daily Tours at 11AM Enjoy the beauty of Hawaii's South Shore as we head out from our slip in the Kewalo Harbor toward Le'ahi crater [ Diamond Head ]. During your 90 minutes aboard the Haleiwa Queen, you can see the clear view of the Pacific Ocean floor, schools of tropical fish, and marine creatures as we cruise over live coral reefs and one of Hawaii's famous shipwrecks. Keep an eye out for honu [ sea turtles ], eels, reef sharks, dolphins, and schools of tropical fish, all from the deck of our vessel through our glass bottom boat view ports. We look forward to sharing our unique perspective of Honolulu with you, above and below the surface. Sunset Cruises Daily at 5 PM Come aboard the Haleiwa Queen and relax with your family and friends as the skies turn to orange, purple, and pink behind Downton Honolulu during our sunset tour. As the sun goes down, the underwater lights come on. Peer through our glass bottom view ports as fish and sea life are curiously drawn towards our boat's lights illuminating the water around the glass; making the Pacific Ocean's reefs and creatures even viewable at night. There are few sights more memorable than Honolulu's city lights from the water at sunset. Friday Night Fireworks Special! $69 Adults $29 Kids 12 and under Join us every Friday night at 6:30 PM for an unforgettable night of fireworks on the water. The Hilton Hawaiian Village puts on a spectacular firework show on Waikiki Beach and we have the best view from the water. Watch the sunset as we leave the slip and cruise over to Waikiki. Once the sun goes down, the underwater lights come on, illuminating the reef and amazing marine life under the sea. Pick up your food and drink from Eat the Street in our harbor and enjoy a one of a kind experience on the Haleiwa Queen. Private Events With a capacity of up to 50 guests, the Haleiwa Queen comfortably accommodates your group for a range of events. Private dive sessions, wedding photos, memorials, corporate groups, proposal celebration, or you simply want the whole boat to yourselves.

Fireworks were amazing from the water. It was too dark to see anything from glass bottom and because they allow you to Bring your own alcohol - things can be a bit of a party boat

Took the Friday night fireworks tour. Basically was $200 for a 50 minute boat ride. Totally not worth it.

This boat tour was not worth the money. We took the 1pm tour and didn't see anything. We literally just cruised around and the guys were sweet, had lots of information but just wasn't worth the amount.

I think we had to high of expectations. Did not see hardly any fish, however we did see a beautiful sunset. The crew was fun and very interactive. It was not their fault that the fish were shy on this night.
