About the Boat

Hoku Nai’a is a super stable catamaran and the largest vessel in our fleet, making her perfect for a beer tasting boat cruise!

This 65-foot vessel is designed for passenger comfort and panoramic views from both the main deck and elevated observation deck.

There are two restrooms available on the main deck.

You will enjoy a beautifully appointed interior with upscale décor throughout the vessel that celebrates Dana Point’s famous surfing culture and recognition as the Dolphin and Whale Watching Capital of the World®.

On the first floor, the main deck is fully enclosed for climate control. As you enter, a lounge area with three sofas provides a comfortable place to relax and chat. Moving forward of the lounge are plenty of bench seats with tables. And towards the front of the boat is a large buffet. Large windows on both sides provide panoramic viewing angles.

Heading upstairs to the second floor, the observation deck has ample cushioned bench seating and is covered for added sun protection. A full bar is available for purchasing refreshments including water, soft drinks, beer, and wine.
