Waikiki Ocean Club Offers Free Lunch; Half-Day Rates

Good news for families headed to Oahu: Day-long guests of Waikiki Ocean Club, the 300-foot-long floating playground moored off Waikiki, will now receive a free lunch, including entrée, chips and soft drink.
In addition, the attraction has introduced a half-day rate of $49 for guests who want the flexibility of a four-hour introduction to the activities on board, including snorkeling, trampoline, stand-up paddling, slides, helmet diving and even PADI-certified scuba lessons.  (Childrens’ rates are $39.)
Recently, Waikiki Ocean Club also partnered with Waikiki Trolley to provide complimentary round-trip transportation for guests from throughout Waikiki to the Hilton Hawaiian Village, where the water shuttles to the Club depart.
Lee Collins, president of Waikiki Ocean Club, said, “These changes are the result of an extensive market research effort our staff executed throughout the summer months.  We interviewed over 150 of our best customer providers at tour agent and concierge desks to ascertain what we could do to improve the customer experience.
“We used the data to discover what the major barriers to bookings were; and we have addressed every one of them:  a complimentary lunch, a half-day option and free transportation to the attraction.  We are already seeing the improved traffic as a result of these new amenities.”
Waikiki Ocean Club operates from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. A full bar and lunch menu are available.  Shuttles depart frequently throughout the day to ferry guests from either the Hilton Hawaiian Village Pier or the Ala Wai Boat Harbor to the 10,000 square foot vessel. 
Waikiki Ocean Club may be booked for special occasions and events.  For information, visit www.WaikikiOceanClub.com.
