The Ho’o Nanea is the perfect boat for whale watching. It is just the right size to keep you close to the ocean, but big enough to be a safe and stable viewing platform.
- We can only take maximum of 10 people, if they are multiple reservations. If it is a party of 11-19 people under the same household or family or traveling together they will have to call to book the reservation.
- Masks will be worn by the crew, if it is multiple reservations (ie: party of 2, party of 4, party of 2) they will be required to wear masks. If it is a private tour or just one reservation the masks are optional, whatever they feel comfortable with.
- The boat will be disinfected before each tour departs, and the passengers will use hand sanitizer (provided by us) before coming aboard the boat. Snorkel equipment will be washed and sanitized before and after every trip.
