Ocean and You
With the New Year comes the newest Waikiki sunset dinner cruise on Oahu, Ocean and You! The upscale dining experience is the premiere intimate sunset cruise for visitors and locals alike. Ocean and You launches Valentines Day, 2020.
With transportation from Waikiki included, the all-new power boat Ariya II departs from the Kawelo Basin Boat Harbor. We begin our evening with a champagne cheers to welcome you into your new Ohana as the sun dips lower in the sky. Then we will cruise east toward the iconic landmark Diamond Head State Monument.
Watch as the skyline begins to glitter and Diamond Head lights up for golden hour! Surfers glide along pristine azure waves in front of a beautiful mountain backdrop. Watch the horizon for sightings of green “honu” sea turtles, spinner dolphins or humpback whales in winter!
All the while, you will be serenaded by Oahu’s best live musical entertainment. As you explore the boat’s two decks and wraparound seating, the music can be heard anywhere over the surround sound speakers. Head over to the front of the bow for a photo in front of Diamond Head on the boat’s Titanic-style front railing.
As you relax, the crew will begin serving delicious island cuisine, prepared by local famous chef Elmer Guzman. Chef Guzman has trained under notable international chefs, such as Alan Wong and Samuel Choy. Dine on the insta-worthy plates he has prepared, including a real lobster meat bao bun with tarragon emulsion, sous vide beef with honshimeji mushroom ragout, strawberry haupia mousse and more.
On the way back you’ll be entertained by our amazing crew. They’ll perform professional hula dances, just like the ones you would see at a Luau! After dark, the boat transforms with unique lavender lighting and a starry, twinkling ceiling. And the Honolulu skyline is a sight to behold as the buildings light up.
As a special treat every ‘Aloha Friday’, enjoy the inclusion of a coastal fireworks show! The 10-minute show begins at 7:45 pm. The view from sea is the best in the house!
