Overview

One of the world's largest Polynesian ocean vessels, the Alii Kai Catamaran is among Honolulu's most popular choices for a fabulous sunset sail along Waikiki's golden shoreline. The Makahiki Dinner Buffet takes place as the Catamaran sets sail, a congregation of fun and festivities. In Old Hawaii, Makahiki was a time when people spent their time feasting and dancing.
