The musician and historical narrator of the cruise were my two, absolute, favorites! The artist was so kind to sing Blue Bayou for me and his rendition was beautiful. They were so kind, so informative, and super talented. The crew that served our food, and the bartenders were so cool and kind, as well, the drink prices were very affordable and the ride itself was gorgeous. My husband, my sister and I were so impressed, so comfortable and enjoyed every bit. Thank you all for an amazing first day, of our first ever time, in Hawai'i. Much love!

Better than expected!
Julia_T, Sep 2023
Stunning views, delicious dood, great music, and incredible hosts. It was amazing anniversary evening. Just keep in mind, we were not able to pick food, it was just delivered. My husband is very picky, but he got lucky that the food was what he likes.
Do this!

overall it was great. The historical part of it was fascinating and I loved the Hawaiian music. I could have done without the cover songs and dance music but that's just me. I wanted the Hawaiian experience. Food was great too.

We loved this sunset cruise! The staff was very friendly. Our tour guide was interesting and informative, but didn’t talk too much. The musician was GREAT! The food and drinks were delicious. However, the best part was that we saw some whales! Very unexpected at this time of year! We would love to go back again.

Nice but pricy cruise
Stanley_K, Sep 2023
Somewhat expensive but a nice dinner cruise. Good music and crew. And you see a great sundown. Similar types of cruises in Oahu are somewhat cheaper, but this is the big island and it has fewer choices.
Beautiful cruise
