Hawaii’s favorite Humpback whale visitors are returning to our islands’ warm waters, and we’re inviting visitors and kamaaina alike to climb aboard the STAR for a whale watching adventure they’ll never forget! From January 2 to April 5, 2019, we’re offering Hawaii’s most popular whale watch cruise with guaranteed whale sightings and a “Child FREE” special. Throughout whale watch season, we’re inviting children ages 3 to 11 to cruise FREE with each paying adult aboard the Premier Whale Watch and Early Bird Whale Watch cruises. Bring the whole family for a fun-filled day of spotting these majestic ocean creatures in their ocean home! Then learn from our friendly crew of certified Naturalists, who love sharing their knowledge through informative displays, narration, handouts and a fun kids program. Equipped with a 60-foot high observation deck, four walk-around decks and three types of stabilizers, the Star of Honolulu is the ultimate tour vessel to view Humpbacks in their natural habitat. Best of all, you’re guaranteed to spot whales during the tour! If you don’t see a whale, you’ll receive a free return “Whale Check” to try again (meal and transportation not included). We can’t wait to welcome you aboard this whale watch season! The Early Bird Whale Watch cruise departs at 8:45AM and returns at 10:45AM, while the Premier Whale Watch cruise departs at noon and returns at 2:30PM.

Top Five Places to Watch the Sunset on Oahu

Nothing says “Hawaii” quite like a breathtaking sunset, especially on Oahu. No matter where you drive on the island, you’re sure to come across an amazing sunset that’ll make you smile (and your social media friends jealous!). Here are our five favorite spots on the island for catching that picture-perfect sunset shot.

5. Kakaako Waterfront Park
Nestled in the heart of Honolulu, Kakaako Waterfront Park is the perfect location for watching sunsets with the family. Its grassy hills and sweeping ocean views ensure that no matter where you are in the park, you’ll catch a glimpse of the colorful magic.

4. Kaena Point
This one’s for our friends on or visiting Oahu’s west side! Kaena Point is known for its popular and accessible hiking trail, but did you know it’s also one of the best places to catch the sunset? Here’ you’ll find enchanting blue waters and unique tidepools in the foreground of your perfect sunset photo.

3. Sunset Beach
Who wouldn’t want to watch the sunset at Oahu’s Sunset Beach? As its name implies, Sunset Beach consistently delivers some of the best ocean views as the sun sinks beneath the shoreline. You’ll want to arrive early, because this popular destination gets busy fast!

2. Waikiki Beach
If you’re staying in Waikiki and can’t make the drive elsewhere, don’t worry—Waikiki Beach has got you covered. Here you’ll find one of the most relaxing ways to end your day in paradise, complete with stunning ocean views and sandy shores. Our tip: hit up the beach to watch the sunset, then close out your evening at Rock-A-Hula, where the spirit of Aloha meets the sparkle of Vegas! The rockin’ show starts at 8PM in the 750-seat Royal Hawaiian Theater.

1. Star of Honolulu
Of all the places to watch the sunset, we like this one the best. Join us aboard the STAR for a memorable evening at sea, where you’ll be treated to gourmet food, live entertainment, smooth sailing, and the best sunset and city lights views on the island.
