  • Soda, juice, and water.


  • Sailing catamaran – Spirit of Aloha Catamaran 

Wildlife Guaranteed: If you don’t see marine wildlife, come back again 1 more time for free! (Rerides only, no refunds. Reride is on trip of equal or lesser value.).


  • Come in shoes that you don’t mind getting sandy, and are easy-to-remove for beach-ramp boarding.
  • Casual clothing is recommended for all trips.
  • This trip is usually on the sailing catamaran Spirit of Aloha but on occasion may be on the powerboat Holona, which is a fast and nimble open powerboat, with plenty of sea-spray likely on trips outside the bay. Clothing that you don’t mind getting wet is recommended for whale-watch and snorkel trips on the Holonapowerboat. Holona is a fast boat with low sides and lots of sea spray.
  •  There is storage beneath each saddle-style seat for dry storage of a small bag or purse, and a take-along towel.


  • When boarding at A-Bay, it is a beach-loading process with transfer from a tender-boat, with barefoot entry that takes a few steps into the seawater from the beach. 
  • All participants must complete electronic waivers prior to participation.
