Oahu 4 days (5th day option)*

Day 1: South and West shores of Oahu
Depart from Ko’olina resort, the newest luxury resort on Oahu’s beautiful west side. We sail in the lee of the Waianae mountain range and stop for lunch at Yokohama Bay, then head around Kaena point to Waimea for the night. Waimea is a beautiful location that is a sacred place in Hawaiian folklore. Once home to one of Oahu’s largest indigenous populations, today it is the home of the largest wave contest. For obvious reasons we only anchor here when the surf is down. Go ashore and explore the sea caves, take in a show at the waterfall, or relax on the beach and watch the sunset.

Day 2: Waimea Bay
We get a late start and set sail down the coast to Waimea Bay. Waimea is a beautiful location that is a sacred place in Hawaiian folklore. Once home to one of Oahu’s largest indigenous populations, today it is the home of the largest wave contest. For obvious reasons we only anchor here in the summer months when the surf is down. Go ashore and explore the sea caves, take in a show at the waterfall, or relax on the beach and watch the sunset.

Day 2: Kaneohe Bay
We get an early start and set sail along the north shore for Kaneohe Bay. The island looks decidedly different on this side, much more like French Polynesia with a barrier reef and sharp mountain ridges. You’ll look deep into lush green valleys and try to count the waterfalls. The destination for the day is Kaneohe Bay. A beautiful location, we anchor on an island made entirely of sand that comes and goes with the tide.

Day 4: Honolulu
We get an early start, sail through Kaneohe Bay and back into the Pacific. final leg sails past numerous small offshore islets teeming with wild tropical seabirds, and an abundance of sea life, whales, dolphins, turtles. We round Makapu’u point and pick up the trade winds for a fast sail back to Diamond Head and anchor off Waikiki for the night. The city lights are great at night and if we are there on a Friday, there‘s even a fireworks show. We sail back past Diamondhead and Waikiki and finish our cruise back at our home base in Kewalo.

Day 5 and 6: Two days in Kaneohe Bay
Spend an extra day to sail and explore this beautiful bay, kayak to Coconut (Gilligan’s) Island, wait for the tide to cover up Sand Island, swim and snorkel, or just relax and enjoy.
