No commentary, you just have to sit in the boat look around by yourself. Boring...not useful for the tourists.

Had a great time with Makani. Food was surprisingly good. Boat seemed full but not overly crowded. I loved sitting in the front on the net holding us over the water.

The views were amazing, the drinks were delicious, and the crew were loads of fun. We did the Friday night sunset and fireworks catamaran tour and wow! I can’t think of a better way to spend our last night in paradise. Chris made delicious beverages, the food was tasty, and the sunset was breathtaking.

My boyfriend and I went on the morning turtle canyon snorkeling trip. (Check Groupon before you book!) Every one of the staff members on board was pleasant, inviting, and helpful. They made you feel comfortable from the start to finish. Lifeguards on board jumped into the water with us and lead us right to some turtles. The captain and first mate directed our attention to dolphins swimming nearby, even slowing down the boat so people could take pictures. The sandwiches and fruit were fresh. No complaints whatsoever, this is definitely a MUST when in Honolulu!
