Enjoy the spirit of the ocean and the breathtaking views of the island as the Polynesians did many years ago. This luxurious, high-tech Grand Prix style catamaran was technically designed, structurally and specifically for Hawaiian waters. Upon reaching Turtle Canyon you will be fitted with professional grade snorkel gear, fins and a life vest. Plunge into the warm Hawaiian waters and snorkel just enough to not get too tired! After an exciting snorkel, set off toward Oahu’s iconic Diamond Head for a relaxing sail in the sun. The lush Ko’olau Mountains, shimmering skylines of Honolulu and Waikiki, and majestic Diamond Head make for absolutely breathtaking scenery and a perfect setting for an unforgettable afternoon on Hawaii’s turquoise waters.

  • Three-hour tour (one-hour snorkeling adventure; two-hour sailing cruise)
  • Snorkel gear and instruction, Certified Lifeguards, covered and open-air seating and dual restrooms

Foundation Golf Tournament

Thursday, September 26, 12:30 p.m.–6:30 p.m.

Designed by renowned course architect Dick Nugent in 1992, the 7,310-yard 18-hole golf course seamlessly incorporates the surrounding landscape and beauty into its layout—using ravines as the target for holes and large sand bunkers as deterrents to wayward shots. Although Ko’olau has rightly earned its reputation for being one of the most challenging courses in the nation when playing from the back tees, there are four other sets of tees to choose to match your level of play. Join your fellow golfers and enjoy the spectacular views of the golf course, the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding vista.

Transportation, lunch and drink tickets are included. Join your fellow golfers on this peaceful – yet amazing course.

Tournament winners will be announced during the Final Night Reception.

The cost to play is $225.
