North Shore Catamaran Charters

The 40' sailing catamaran, Ho'o Nanea, operated by North Shore Catamaran Charters sails out of the quaint North Shore town of Haleiwa. This is the famous coastline you've heard about that has some of the biggest surf in the world at places such as Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay and Pipeline. During the winter months the surf is often enormous and conditions are too radical to allow for snorkeling off the coast. During this season the boat is mostly used to see our visiting humpback whale population and other marine animals. During the summer the coastline is ideal for snorkeling adventures and offers great visibility and fabulous reef-life. Sunset cruises are available all year long as are private charters for groups of 16 or less. This boat is beautiful and is a great choice for an intimate sailing, snorkeling or whale watch experience.
