Where does the cruise depart from?

Can you accommodate wheelchairs?
Yes, the cruise is wheelchair friendly. The catamarans include a customized boarding ramp with portable extensions to accommodate all wheelchairs including manual, electric and scooters. The lower deck of the 65′ catamaran is fully accessible from bow to stern including tables and restrooms. We also have limited handicapped parking on the Kailua Pier where we depart for our ocean adventures. To obtain pier parking access please travel with your handicapped parking placard and when making your reservation let our team know your parking needs. Passes are limited and issued on a first come first serve basis.
Will I get sea sick?
The bigger the boat, the more stable it is. Our vessel is 65′ in length with a 30′ beam and the largest boat of our kind on the Kona Coast. It’s a totally different experience than being on a smaller boat or a raft. If you know you are prone to seasickness, we recommend you take Bonine or Dramamine the night before and another one several hours before your cruise. Please read the directions to see that you are able to take this medication. We carry this on board, however, it is best to have it in your system prior to boarding. You are more likely to feel better on the lower deck of the vessel as there is less pitch. We also offer complimentary Ginger pills and a Ginger drink which is great for motion sickness and it’s all natural.
What should I bring with me?
We recommend that our passengers bring a light jacket and comfortable, flat shoes.
Will we see whales?
The best opportunity to see whales is between late December and late March when the Humpback Whales migrate to Hawaii from the north Pacific.
Will we see dolphins?
There is a 98% chance of seeing dolphins all year round from our boat as they enjoy riding our wake.
Is free parking available?
You are welcome to park for free at our office located one block away from the Kailua Pier at the Ilima Court Shopping Center at 75-5629 Kuakini Hwy, Kailua Kona, HI 96740. You may also park at the Hotel King Kamehameha for an hourly fee. If you require handicapped parking there are two stalls located in the cul-de-sac in front of the Kailua Pier but come early as they are used frequently.
