Enjoy a Thoroughly Memorable Hawaii Nautical Dinner and Cocktail Cruise

Waikiki Fireworks Display


Let’s have a think. It’s a Friday night and you are on vacation in Hawaii, staying in Honolulu or Waikiki on Oahu, and you want to go out for the evening but are not sure what to do.


You could go for a lovely walk along the shoreline and stop off for a drink at one of the many seaside bars. You could book a table at a nice restaurant and then stroll back to your hotel room. That sounds pretty much like a typical Friday night when you want to relax and unwind. There’s only one problem. It also sounds like you could be on vacation anywhere, but you’re not, you’re in Hawaii!


Holidays in Hawaii are all about making unforgettable memories

A good vacation should be one where you create wonderful memories and enjoy experiences you would be unlikely to find anywhere else. That is the beauty of Hawaii and what is provided by many of the tours available on all the islands, but especially Oahu. Which is exactly why you need to book a place on the Friday night Hawaii Nautical Waikiki Fireworks Dinner Cruise, and don’t remember to take your camera or smartphone with you when you go!


Not just a night-time Hawaii cruise with fireworks

An ocean cruise on a balmy evening takes a lot of beating, yet that is only just the beginning of what is on offer during a wonderful two hours spent offshore. How about some traditional Hawai’ian cocktails to get the evening off to a flying (or rather sailing) start? Then we have some wonderful Hawai’ian cuisine, and an example of the type of menu you can expect includes Sauteed mahi mahi with ginger butter sauce and diced tomato sweet chili chicken, Salisbury steak with caramelized sauce and crisp onion garnish, penne pasta with macadamia nut pesto, and julienne vegetables. Sides of shrimp cocktail, bread rolls, pita chips with feta cheese and basil pesto, potato salad. Cream puffs and assorted mini cheesecakes for dessert.


And then comes the fireworks!

With the gentle sound of waves lapping against the side of the catamaran mingling with the bangs and explosions of the fireworks themselves, there really is very little to compare with such an experience and we cannot recommend this particular tour highly enough.


Of course, if it just so happens you are not free on a Friday night, you can still book the same two-hour evening cruise that includes a wonderful meal and, not forgetting the great local cocktails!
