Gift yourself with a beautiful experience at an affordable price.

Semisub, one of the most high-tech watercraft in the world, makes this possible with its Friday Fireworks Cruise. This exciting two-hour adventure lets you sail offshore Waikiki to see the famous and spectacular Hilton Friday Fireworks show from your comfortable cabin seating. But before this, you get to enjoy stunning sights, like the Waikiki shorelines and the iconic Diamond Head. Plus, a delicious dinner prepared by world-renowned Chef Chai (known for his Hawaiian regional cuisine), including a mouthwatering braised boneless beef short rib. This cruise is for everyone, from infants to seniors. If you bring your children, they receive a big discount and infants age 2 and under are free (they will sit on your lap).

This modern boat is quite unique from the other cruising vessels. Because it is semi-submersible and jet-powered, designed for your safety and comfort that allows you to cruise the Oahu’s southern coast in style. It features an IMAX-style theater seating where you could watch breathtaking underwater video while sipping your favorite cocktail available from full bars on board.

Or perhaps relax in the air-conditioned cabin in a comfy captain-style chair while enjoying your dinner. To accommodate your preferences and budget, Semisub offers four packages, such as the Friday Fireworks Cruise (dinner not included), Classic, Premium, and VIP packages. 


Activities Aboard the Semisub Friday Fireworks Sail

If you select an option with roundtrip transportation, you would be picked up from centralized hotel locations. Anyway, you will see the exact place and pick-up time in your confirmation email after booking. If you rent or drive your own car, ensure to check-in at 6:10 pm because the vessel leaves at 6:30. Note that parking fee applies. You can find some excellent car rental services around Honolulu. When you get to the Aloha Tower, pier 8, where it departs, some staff meet and take care of you from there.

Stepping on the boat, friendly and accommodating crew welcome you with a lei greeting. In Hawaii, everyone deserves an Aloha, so it doesn’t matter which package you purchase. They will lead you to your designated seats. When you get inside, you’ll see that the interior is dominated by a blue color, which matches the ocean’s. And the slightly tinted windows give you a secured feeling. When you look around, you’ll find out that every spot is comfortable that allows you to have the best views, so ready your camera and start capturing those awe-inspiring sights. But first, you will receive a short safety briefing, and you’re good to go in no time.

While cruising, unlimited drinks are distributed, such as soda, coffee, or tea. If you prefer feeling mellow, alcoholic beverages are available at reasonable costs. We strongly suggest you visit the special viewing compartments, where you can sit back, relax, and watch a video. The boat boasts unique underwater pods that play a video showcasing the beautiful world underneath our ocean’s surface. Here, you can see precious coral reefs, a variety of fish, reef sharks, and Hawaiian sea turtles. In the end, you’ll realize how these wonderful creations play a significant role in our nature. 

Before the highlight of this adventure, comes another exciting event, which is the eating part. Indulge in a world-class gourmet prepared by a top Chef, including organic vegetables. So, if you’re vegan, there are plenty of choices for you. Dine and feast on Hawaiian taro rolls and butter, along with beef short ribs, and carrots and mashed potatoes. You can also sit in the deck with comfortable captain-style seating chairs and enjoy your meal. After eating, you can hang out with other guests or probably start taking pictures again of those beautiful things sorrounding you.
