Set sail on one of Waikiki’s most popular outdoor activities. A catamaran cruise is a great way to spend some time in the open water taking in views of Diamond Head, sipping on a Mai Tai, and sunbathing. Some catamarans offer snorkeling right off the boat, whale watching, or fishing.
Located just across the street from the Park Shore Waikiki is 42 acres of land that makes up Oahu’s only zoo.
