Most of our fun was had on the north shore however this was right outside of our hotel, so why not? Captain and crew were exceptionally accommodating, snorkeling was really good- turtles were everywhere. It's the beginning of whale season but they haven't shown up yet. If you're considering this beginning December 1st, you have a pretty good chance of... More

My husband and I had the best time on this snorkel lunch and sail! The crew was absolutely awesome, drinks and food were great! And we were up close and personal with the turtles!! My first time snorkeling and the crew have great instruction and guidance.

On the suggestion of some folks we met, we decided to give the Reef Tour a try since we hadn't seen any turtles at Hanauma Bay. This was the best chance we took on our trip. The captain and crew were great. While my wife and I have no issues with the ocean, a few of the passengers were a... More

The cruise was a beautiful way to see Waikiki and the fireworks on the Friday night. The crew were wonderful and generous with drinks and delicious buffet. We had a great unobstructed vantage point on the water. Highly recommended.

On our last night in Honolulu we went out on the sunset cruise and we were not disappointed, even with a little bit of rain, it was still fantastic. The crew members were awesome, even allowing our son to steer the catamaran on the way back. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

We had a great time on the cocktail cruise. The crew was fun and attentive. At no time did I suffer from an empty glass (we tipped accordingly). While the appetizers are nothing to rave about, there was food to lay a base of alcohol. And besides, are you on a sunset cocktail cruise for the food? Even though the... More

What a sensational cruise. Did the sunset fireworks Friday cruise from the Hilton. What can I say, brilliant guys, a great team on board. Food was amazing and everything was beautiful. Took my mother on this who is in her 80s and she loved it. Calm waters, beautiful fireworks and just an overall great night. Many thanks.

This was very easy to book and then I had to change the date and the team responded and were very accommodating and assisted with the change. The cruise was amazing and the staff were excellent, there was food provided and drinks were great. Spectacular views. Definitely a must for visitors.

We had a wonderful time on our sunset cruise! The catamaran was spacious and the crowd was small. The crew was personable and attentive. Never saw anyone who didn't have a beverage in hand. The ride out and back was smooth. I've been prone to sea sickness in the past, but never felt a thing on this trip. We met... More

It was a gorgeous evening, some decent swell to provide a true sailing experience as we headed east towards Diamond Head and then a glorious sunset as we sailed back west. As an extra bonus, as the sun set, the full moon rose above Diamond Head. Magical. Oh, and a fun crew too.
