Star of Honolulu is making waves with its popular whale watch cruises! From now through April 5, 2017, adults and keiki alike can enjoy the Premier Whale Watch Cruise, featuring remarkable views of Hawaii’s favorite ocean visitors, a “Child Free” special and guaranteed whale sightings.

Hawaii’s most popular whale watch cruise, the Star of Honolulu’s Premier Whale Watch cruise is designed for visitors and kamaʻaina alike. Complete with a 60-foot high observation deck and four walk-around decks, the STAR is custom designed for whale watching, and allows passengers to cruise in safety and comfort. Our friendly certified Naturalists love sharing their knowledge of these marine mammals while keeping their eyes peeled for nearby humpback whales. You’ll also have the chance to engage in a variety of Hawaiian cultural activities, including lei making and hula and ukulele lessons, or upgrade to enjoy the delicious Taste of Hawaii Buffet Lunch. The Premier Whale Watch cruise departs at 12:00 p.m. and returns at 2:30 p.m.

If you prefer to get an earlier start, climb aboard our Early Bird Whale Watch cruise! You’ll kick off your day by spotting these magnificent ocean mammals aboard the comfortable and relaxing STAR vessel. You can even upgrade to enjoy the delicious hot breakfast buffet. The Early Bird Whale Watch cruise departs at 8:45 a.m. and returns at 10:45 a.m.
