Best Catamaran Ride
Randy_H, Mar 2023
This was the best trip!! Our hosts were super nice and so knowledgeable! Riding the front of the boat while going out was really fun for our guys!! Got a little wet, but we are on a boat and in the ocean, so it was really fun!! Saw some turtles and whales which was neat! Overall, would recommend this to anyone wanting to get away from the crowed boat scenario!
Not your average snorkeling experience!
Kirsten_L, Mar 2023
Our private catamaran tour and snorkeling was amazing - we should have booked the 4 hour tour! Francisco and Nick made the entire trip feel personalized just for us. I couldn’t imagine going on one of the big snorkel boats after this experience. They made sure we were comfortable and got to see all the things snorkeling. It felt like we were hanging out with friends who knew all the best spots and local secrets for lunch spots, hiking, and things to do. Our whole family (teens and adults) loved the trip. Would definitely recommend and will definitely book again with these guys! They were the best!
Great private catamaran boat tour and snorkeling trip

Great private charter off the beach in Waikiki. Great calm day out on the water. Snorkeling was awesome. Saw 3 sea turtles and all sorts of fish. Then cruised past Diamond Head and watched whales frolicking. Great all around day and a highlight of our trip to Hawaii!
Worth every penny!

This was an amazing trip. The captain and his mate were very entertaining and gave us a wonderful time to include bringing lots of marine life up for us to experience. Loved the whole trip!
Must try this out. GREAT!

Amazing boat trip, highly recommended.

Francesco and Rylan provided us with an unforgettable trip. They made sure we enjoyed it from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble. They tailored it to provide us with everything we could have wanted. An absolute highlight of our holiday and worth every penny, we cannot recommend this company highly enough.
Crew was fantastic!

Our tour guides Nick & Sam (I think) were amazing! So friendly and knowledgeable. We had a great time; definitely worth having a private tour to avoid the crowds of other tourists groups.
Great private excursion!

Sooo worth the money!!! Saw lots of turtles up close! Sam and Nick were incredible. Super knowledgeable about the island and some of its history. Also had some great recommendations for hikes and sites for after our tour. Thanks Nick for teaching the boys to rock run!

Family trip and had a blast! Captain Sam and Nick were super hospitable with our 5 + 1 baby on board. We had a great time and would definitely do it again! Highly recommended!
Excellent! No other words to describe this.
Jaewoo_K, July 2022
This was a perfect excursion out into the Waikiki waters. The captain was very kind, helpful and respectful. They sailed us to the hotspot for corals and sea turtles. We were able to spot at least 10 turtles! It was like swimming in an aquarium with all the fish as well. Highly highly recommend! Will definitely use their services once more when I come back!
Awesome Private Family Experience
