Cruise Ship Passengers
Waikoloa sunset cruises are not possible for cruise ship passengers in port in Kona.
Waikoloa sunset cruises are a great way for people who are staying at one of the Kohala Coast resorts on the Big Island of Hawaii to get out and experience the ocean. For those who are active enough to snorkel, we would suggest one of these same boats for a Waikoloa snorkel trip instead, and for most guests they will do one or the other … but not both.
