Have a Blast this Friday with Star of Honolulu’s #FridayFireworks Cruises

Here in Hawaii, we’re lucky enough to enjoy fireworks every week! On Friday evenings, Hilton Hawaiian Village hosts a weekly fireworks show that illuminates the sky above Waikiki Beach, and there’s no better place to view them than aboard the Star of Honolulu.

This year we’re dubbing Fridays, “Fireworks Fridays!” We stay out an extra hour to view the spectacular fireworks show in the best spot on the island—the Star of Honolulu viewing decks. Whether you’re enjoying the fun and tropical Pacific Star Sunset Buffet & Show or indulging in the Five Star Sunset Dining & Jazz cruise, you’ll be treated to amazing views of the fireworks every Friday evening aboard the Star of Honolulu.

Entertaining guests for over 60 years, our ohana at Star of Honolulu host nightly dinner cruises aboard our award-wining, 1,5000-passenger tour vessel. We offer a variety of dinner packages to cater to every guest on every budget.

Falling in Love in Hawaii’s Warm Waters

Summer whale watching on Oahu.

Have you ever wondered why humpback whales visit us at the same time every year? It’s all in the name of love!

Every winter, humpbacks migrate away from the frigid Alaskan waters to our pleasant, warm ocean, spending their “vacation” traveling in pods as they breed, give birth, and nurse their young. To humpbacks, Hawaii is their breeding grounds, and they travel over 3,000 miles every year to enjoy this much-needed season of love.

When you climb aboard the Star of Honolulu for one of our popular whale watch cruises, you may have the chance to observe majestic humpback whales as they swim along with their calves. Keep your eyes out for gorgeous sights like these aboard the STAR!
