Top Sunset Cruises on Oahu

Top Sunset Cruises on Oahu

Watching the Hawaiian sun drop below the ocean’s horizon from a catamaran is arguably the best part of a trip to Oahu — the water is scattered with sailboats and cruise ships, and the water sparkles a deep golden orange as music plays and people cheer as the sun sets. This is an experience you don’t want to miss. We chose two affordable 2-hour sails for you to consider — whether you choose the booze-cruise or the BYOB sail, both are perfect for families, couples and friends. Cheers!
