Sunset Cruise from Haleiwa Harbor

Oahu > Hawaii > United States

Series Sunset Cruise from Haleiwa Harbor

We were invited on the sunset cruise one evening. During the day they take people on snorkeling trips up the North Shore from Haleiwa harbor. Drop anchor at Shark's Cove or Three Tables and dive for awhile. Dolphins and turtles everywhere.

Evening on the Ho'o Nanea

At night it's a relaxing cruise into the sunset and back into the harbor at dusk. Drinks and food are served.

Pulling in an Ono, Sunset Cruise from Haleiwa, Oahu, Hawaii

Pulling in an OnoView All Sizes

One of my plans is to rent a vessel and sail around the Caribbean for a month or so. I'd probably prefer a catamaran for the job.

The Cat in Question

The Ho'o Nanea came over from the mainland about 15 years ago, and my mom crewed that voyage into Haleiwa. The hulls of the vessel are actually very roomy for bunks and storage. All the external surfaces are comfortable to sit or stand on. On the front the netting is a great spot to cruise on a sunny day with the dolphins racing the boat right below.

Humpback Whale Sighting

Ostensibly this was a relaxing sunset cruise, but we were also keeping an eagle-eye alert for humpback whales. On this trip we saw only one in the distance as its hump broke the surface and it exhaled a great blast of air and water. Even our offer of free food and drinks couldn't lure it closer. We had a bit more luck later while whale watching in Alaska's Inside Passage.
