Ko Olina

92-100 Waipahe Pl, Oahu, Hawaii

The Basics

Stay at one of Ko Olina’s waterfront resorts or visit for a day. All four man-made lagoons offer a relaxing place to swim, free of rocks or waves, with its own atmosphere. Beach chairs crowded with resort guests line Lagoon One, while Lagoons Two and Three offer more laid-back vibes with fewer crowds. Independent visitors may find Lagoon Four the best option, since it is the only lagoon not backed by a resort.

Take to the sheltered waters for snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, fishing, and other water sports, or just relax on the beach. The planned community of Ko Olina also boasts a golf course, shopping, and waterfront restaurants. A broad walking path connects the activities, lagoons, and resorts, making it easy to explore the area on foot.

Catamaran Sail and Snorkel from Ko Olina
Great snorkel/sailing excursion convenient to our resort at Ko Olina. The experience was enhanced by the beautiful catamaran and it’s attentive, insightful and entertaining crew. Lunch and drinks provided on the trip were an added bonus. On our trip we saw, tons of fish, dolphins and a sea turtle. Would definitely recommend to friends and families staying in the Ko Olina area.

Nice trip - been on better

Catamaran Sail and Snorkel from Ko Olina
This trip is rather short and takes you directly across from a power plant. Apparently, the warm water discharge attracts fish. So, really did not stop over a proper portion of the reef. Though we did see fish, no other wildlife was seen. The crew was great and lunch was better than expected. We have been on better Oahu snorkel trips.

Catamaran Sail and Snorkel from Ko Olina
It was an awesome boat ride! The staff was so attentive. My family of 7 sat at the front of the boat and the staff kept stopping by to replenish our drinks and take our trash. Lunch was yummy and the whole experience was fun and relaxing. The snorkeling was great as well… we swam with a ton of beautiful fish and two turtles. We even saw dolphins! It was a beautiful afternoon I would highly recommend.

Catamaran Sail and Snorkel from Ko Olina
We had lots of fun. The transfer was very well organised. The crew was nice. We saw dolphins and turtles. The snorkelling stop was ok. A lot of fish but not a reef, just a lava rock. A lot of drinks.

When to Get There

Set on Oahu’s west side, Ko Olina is an ideal place to catch the sunset. Additionally, its leeward location means the weather is drier than many of the island’s other resort areas, making it a popular destination year-round. If driving, arrive early in the day, as public parking is limited.
