At Ocean Joy Cruises, we are proud of the unspoiled beauty of our Waianae Coast. We want to share the unique experience of cruising this amazing coastline and viewing our native sea life. We recognize the importance of preserving the balance of Mother Nature in this tranquil environment. We are committed to responsible viewing of our native wildlife along the Waianae Coast.
We aim to educate our guests about these beautiful dolphins, whales, sea turtles and tropical fish so that future generations may continue to enjoy their presences for many years to come!
