Star of Honolulu - Early Bird Whale Watch Cruise
Get up early, enjoy the fresh morning breeze out on the ocean and look for whales! The waters are usually the calmest during this time of day, ideal for whale watching. The Star of Honolulu is Oahu’s largest shoreline cruise vessel. With four spacious walk-around decks plus a 60-foot observation deck, there is plenty of room to roam around and enjoy viewing of the whales.
A marine naturalist is on board to share fascinating insights on the Pacific humpback whales. Best of all, whale sightings are guaranteed. If no whales are seen during the cruise, you will receive a free return whale check (meal and transportation optional).
Special: One FREE child ticket per paying adult! This ONLY applies to the Early Bird Whale Watch (without breakfast).
Optional add-on: Enjoy a continental breakfast on this cruise that includes your choice of coffee, tea or juice.
