Come aboard the Ho’o Nanea, a spacious sailing Catamaran, and enjoy a whale watch cruise along Oahu’s scenic North Shore. 

catamaran is just the right size to keep you close to the ocean and also big enough to be a safe and stable viewing platform.

The whales do not get frightened or disturbed by our boat because most of the time we are under sail. When we do motor, the small outboard engines are very quiet and unobtrusive. Our underwater hydrophone lets you hear the singing, clicking and moaning that goes on between the groups of humpbacks. It is truly an amazing experience!
