Hello all, My husband and I chartered a whale watching charter on 12/9/2016. The boat arrived right on time and with a smiling captain. Unlike other charters I have been on where a three hour trip is actually only 2 - 2 1/2 hours, this one was the full three hours as advertised. Our captain was friendly and did everything... More

I, and 5 of my friends were lucky enough to spend 3 amazing hours on board the stunning yacht with Captain Paul. Paul was fantastic! He is a very skilled captain and just a wonderful person who was very helpful and conscious of our needs. We opted for snorkelling, which is a must, as we swam with turtles and plenty... More

We arrived early and Captain Paul was also early and was happy to set off. He couldn't have been more helpful, lots of cold drinks on hand and he was able to accomodate all of our family wishes.

Tradewind Charters helped us create a magical day for our family. They were helpful in planning a meaningful day and listened to our requests. Not only that, but they delivered. I don't hesitate to recommend them.

We had a great trip. Captain Paul was are leader and he sailed our ship just off the coast of Waikki. We started our trip at 2pm and sailed till 5pm. During the trip we saw turtles and fish from along side the boat. It was too early for whales but did get a view of the water and sky... More

Can't thank Tradewind Charters and Captain Bobby enough for all the help putting together my proposal on the 19th of August 2016. The sunset and fireworks combo on a private charter was perfect for what I needed - and while it was a little awkward getting down on one knee on a boat, it worked a treat. Really enjoyed the...

Our captain, Bobbie, and his wife, took us out for our cruise. They were very pleasant and told us lots of information about the surrounding area. The boat accommodated all us (11) very easily and we were allowed to sit out on the bow so we could enjoy the view more. We were going to snorkel, but the water was... More

I wanted to do something special for my parents 50th wedding anniversary which we were celebrating in Hawaii, so I booked a private three hour charter with Tradewinds for the four of us.
