Does a cruise around a Hawaiian island sound like a fun way to spend your family holiday? Your family will enjoy listening to native music, eating local cuisine, and drinking tropical beverages, all while relaxing on a lounge seat that is on a catamaran's deck. This family-friendly activity will give you an up-close view of the environment and prompt you and your loved ones to participate in or observe cultural activities.
Pick The Right Type Of Sunset Cruise
A 'booze' cruise or a "romantic couples" cruise are two activities that are popular, but each of these activities won't be suitable for a younger crowd. Choose a boating outfitter that showcases family cruises, which encompass a wide range of activities. A sunset cruise usually begins with appetizers and a meal, followed by music, dancing, or a live performance.
Hawaiian hula dancers may add some interesting aspects to your boating adventure that will provide everyone with a unique take on entertainment, dining, and local culture--while also making the experience fun and exciting.
The duration of your adventure will depend upon the charter company that you purchase your tickets through. Choose a cruise that will allow ample time to enjoy each leg of the trip and that provides railside seating that will allow your family to observe the sunset in entirety or give you the opportunity to take countless scenic photos.
Be On Time And Bring Essentials
The captain of a chartered catamaran will follow a standard schedule, which will include leaving a dock at a specific time and returning at a specific time. Don't risk missing the cruise, due to not being prepared in advance. Let your spouse and children know about the fun activity that lies ahead. After arriving in Hawaii, check into your hotel and request that everyone freshens up prior to heading to the cruise pickup location.
If the cruise is going to begin when it is still bright and sunny out, bring along sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses for you and your loved ones to utilize. Place one or two cameras or smartphones inside of a purse or tote bag. Use both devices to take pictures of the scenery and festivities that you observe while on the catamaran. Try to make the event as lighthearted and fun as you can. Encourage your spouse to dance with you and prompt your children to participate in kid-friendly activities that are offered on the watercraft.
