HONOLULU - Just in time for summer. Long known as one of the most family-friendly resorts in Hawaii, Hilton Hawaiian Village® Waikiki Beach Resort has added another family-friendly activity for its guests: the Waikiki Ocean Club. Billed as "Waikiki's
ultimate ocean playground," Waikiki Ocean Club is the third ocean activity offered to guests at the resort.

Moored about 300 yards offshore, the Waikiki Ocean Club offers a wide variety of oceanrelated activities such as trampolines, diving platforms, jet skiing, snorkeling, and helmet diving. The cost for a full day on board is $89.00 for adults (16 and older); $69.00 for youth (4 to 15 years). Kama'āina rates are $79.00 for adults and $59.00 for youth. Children 3 and under are $25.00. Some activities on board incur an additional cost.

The Spirit of Aloha marked the return of sailing excursions from Hilton Hawaiian Village in June of 2010. Aboard the 54-foot catamaran, guests can explore the Waikiki coastline through several different sails, including a lunch snorkel sail, a reef snorkel sail, an afternoon adventure sail, sunset cocktails and a Friday night fireworks dinner cruise.

Another fun family activity is an Atlantis Submarine underwater tour. A shuttle boat takes passengers on a ten-minute scenic cruise from the Hilton Pier out to sea to the Atlantis Submarine dive site. There they will board a real passenger submarine and dive 120 feet below the ocean's surface into the habitat of countless exotic sea creatures mingling among the Atlantis reef, while a knowledgeable guide provides interesting information about the marine environment. Submarine tours leave the Hilton Pier every hour between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. daily. Tours start at $89 for adults and $45 for children. Children must be at least 36 inches tall.

All three activities launch from Port Hilton, making it convenient for resort guests, or those in Waikiki. For reservations and more information about any of these activities, call our Tours & Activities Desk, open daily 7 a.m. - 9 p.m., at +1 808 947 2607, or toll free at +1 800 862 5335.
