    We took the deluxe 3.5 hour dophin/whale watching, snorkeling and sightseeing tour aboard the Kai 'Oli'Oli that took us up the entire Waianae coast, from Ko 'Olina Marina to the northernmost tip of the coast, Ka'ena Point.

    While the boat was very nice and spacious, and the staff was super friendly, the tour was pretty pricey at $120/person. It did include a buffet lunch of macaroni salad, rice, pineapple, kahlua pork and BBQ chicken and drinks (soda and Hawaiian Sun, plus beer, wine, mai tais and margaritas). There was also snorkeling gear provided. The waters at Electric Beach were so murky though, that we couldn't really see much, and the variety of fish was not that exciting. We did see dophins and whales swimming nearby, but didn't get to swim with them.

    I highly recommend going with Dolphin Excursions instead if you want to swim with dolphins (check out my review). They both take you along the same route along the Waianae coast.

    Or if you want a real thrill, I heard that Shark Encounters (get lowered in a cage into shark infested ocean waters) is amazing. Though, I have a strong fear of sharks thanks to Jaws, so that was crossed off the list.

    Remember, if you get seasick, take Bonine/Dramamine at least an hour in advance!

Description

Leeward Oahu is currently best associated with tightly packed residential communities, but the Ko Olina Marina manages to squeeze some vacation appeal out of this otherwise somewhat tourist-unfriendly area. Home to the JW Marriott Resort and Spa, a quality golf course, some select beaches, and shopping and dining opportunities, this area won't be so easy to sum up for much longer. Construction is ... read more
well underway for a Disney wonderland here, that, when finished, is sure to bring many of southern Oahu's already bustling crowds of tourists west from Waikiki. This is good news for local businesses and the Marriott, but means you are going to want to act fast if you wish to ether stay here or visit before huge crowds transform it to an almost cliche vacation destination in the vein of Waikiki.
