CHawaii Nautical Sunset Cruisesruise Ship Passengers

We can’t imagine why anyone would want to get off a cruise ship and then get on a smaller boat to go on a dinner cruise, but if that’s what you’d like to do, the Navatek or Star of Honolulu cruises depart from the same harbor where cruise ships arrive in downtown Honolulu and the timing does work. If you’d like to do the Hawaii Nautical Sunset Cruises, it is about a 10 minute cab ride to Kewalo Basin Harbor.
