Ko Olina

92-100 Waipahe Pl, Oahu, Hawaii

The Basics

Stay at one of Ko Olina’s waterfront resorts or visit for a day. All four man-made lagoons offer a relaxing place to swim, free of rocks or waves, with its own atmosphere. Beach chairs crowded with resort guests line Lagoon One, while Lagoons Two and Three offer more laid-back vibes with fewer crowds. Independent visitors may find Lagoon Four the best option, since it is the only lagoon not backed by a resort.

Take to the sheltered waters for snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, fishing, and other water sports, or just relax on the beach. The planned community of Ko Olina also boasts a golf course, shopping, and waterfront restaurants. A broad walking path connects the activities, lagoons, and resorts, making it easy to explore the area on foot.

Fantastic Sailing Whale watching and Snorkeling

Catamaran Sail and Snorkel from Ko Olina
The morning sail and snorkel tour was really fantastic and made more so by the crew’s great hospitality and knowledge. They made each of feel special with individual attention. We spent extra time chasing the whales and had multiple sightings. The snorkeling was awesome - They took us out a ‘hole’ to try to get some turtle and white tip shark sightings. All in all a really chilled and memorable morning. Just what we were hoping for.

Catamaran Sail and Snorkel from Ko Olina
The crew worked hard to make sure we had a good time. I was disappointed in the snorkeling compared to the Big Island but that’s not the crews fault.

Fabulous excursion with incredible staff

Catamaran Sail and Snorkel from Ko Olina
My husband and i brought our 18 year old daughter, and 2 of her friends, to hawaii to celebrate her birthday and graduation. This Catamaran was just the right excursion for them! The crew were all so kind and made sure we never had a hand without a drink (even if it was just sprite or water!) although everyone did get 3 free alcoholic drinks if they wanted them. The crew did all the hard work of getting everyone set up with snorkel gear while we all just relaxed and absorbed the hawaiian rays! We had to enter the water in a life jacket but once we entered the water we had the option of taking them off. We took ours off. One of the crew saw our daughter diving down and suggested she dive down through a cavern. It was so fun to see her dive down 30 feet with him knowing she was safe. He was FABULOUS! I think his name was Mike??? After snorkeling we enjoyed a boxed lunch with a delicious, AND HUGE, turkey sandwich. I miss the old ways of catamaran lunches but hopefully they'll go back to the "before covid" way of making and serving meals sometime in the near future. Captain Todd navigated the boat to allow us to see the dolphins which made everyone on the boat happy! Such a fabulous few hours of great weather, BEAUTIFUL snorkel site, yummy food, and lots of incredible staff to help us enjoy it all!
