The Honi Olani is a 53-foot sailing catamaran with room for 49 passengers. The vessel features two restrooms. Indoor seating is available.
Effective September 13, 2021, a new initiative called Safe Access Oahu, which was issued by the Mayor of Honolulu, will begin. What this means is:
* Guests may limit their cabin time to 15 minutes per trip or show a COVID-19 vaccine card OR COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours, (picture or app) to any crew member to linger longer.
* Our boats have multiple outdoor areas, and we will limit cabin entry duration. We will not need to visually screen each and every guest's proof of vaccine/test card and will allow people with neither one to still attend because this an outdoor experience except for limited cabin entry.
* Our online waiver form documenting last-date vaccine/test will be our avenue for mass screening. Any actual visual checks of guest cards or tests will only have to happen if a guest wants to nap, eat, or remain inside the indoor cabin for longer than 15 minutes.
