Who we are

The Holokai Catamaran was custom designed and built in 2015 in Portland, Oregon, where she made her maiden voyage to Waikiki Beach. She holds a max passenger capacity of 49 people. Holokai is equipped with a clean, spacious restroom, a stocked bar serving alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and don’t forget our amazing crew!! CPR/First Aid trained snorkel guides, crew and USCG certified Captains with decades of local experience are onboard to serve you chilled drinks while they navigate the beautiful Hawaiian waters.  You can rest assured knowing that you are safe and sound with the best crew and captains on the island.  

We love providing memories that last a lifetime! Whether we are taking your family snorkeling with giant sea turtles, cruising past Diamond Head while relaxing on the nets, or making new friends on our open bar Sunset Cruise; we are committed to creating an environment that is safe, professional and fun. Our team strives to be attentive, personable and accommodating to all our guests and we look forward to creating an unforgettable experience with you!




Holokai Catamaran has been a dream come true for husband and wife team Rich and Soo. The couple first met on Waikiki Beach 12 years ago. Rich was a member of the iconic Waikiki Beach Boys and captained other local beach catamarans for over 20 years.

"Rich was my surf instructor, and after we married, we had the opportunity to buy one of the seven grandfathered catamaran leases for Waikiki Beach, which virtually never come up for sale because they stay in families for generations," said Soo. "We leaped at that chance after Rich had worked his way up to boat captain on other crews, it's his intimate knowledge of the seascape and ocean environment that helps make for a memorable experience for anyone who comes aboard our boats."
