|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.
At night it's a relaxing cruise into the sunset and back into the harbor at dusk. Drinks and food are served.
Robin and John caught a nice Ono (that's a delicious fish) on the way out, and played A catamaran is just a great party boat. live music on the way back. It's a great ride and people love it.

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 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.

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.
