    Awesome experienced! The crew are very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. There is a relax vibe in the crew. Ms. Gigi has a very soothing and calming voice when she sing. She a a great hula teacher although we cannot dance very well. My whole family learn how to make poi. My 14 years old said that this is her favorite of all the activities that I booked. I highly recommend this sail for family and couples. This is my kind of sail, relaxing, educational and almost private because they only accommodate 6 persons. Unforgettable experienced.

    Sunset in paradise
    Lynn_H, Sep 2023
    I had a wonderful time on my sunset trip and for me it was just about the right number of people on board and the crew were so knowledgeable and interesting. I had an issue finding the boat, but that was about it.
    Thoroughly enjoyed this...

    The trip was canceled due to the practitioner not being available. We were advised the evening before. Can't really give a fair rating. The cancelation phone call was professional

    Best experience I’ve ever had on a tour!
    Talia_P, Jul 2022
    I loved everything about this tour! Since the moment we were received by the crew until we said goodbye. I love history so much and getting to learn about this amazing culture sitting on a Hawaiian catamaran was just a dream! I went with my husband and we experienced a very romantic sunset listening Hawaiian music! I can’t recommend this tour enough! 💛

    One of the best amazing beautiful excursions my family and I did while in Hawaii! So relaxing and educational. The staff is phenomenal, knowledgeable and caring. This is a must do when coming to visit this beautiful island.

    Unique. Not touristy. Fun. Saw cool ocean life. Would do AGAIN!
    ddsantella, Feb 2022
    Loved: Hawaii, special evening, no crowds, such fun with integrity and truly unparalleled expert knowledge? Hosts: captain Robert, deckhand Evan and expert artists/educators were super impressive-warmth, honesty, unique skills, ocean smarts, abs ensuring each guest is attended to with courtesy and aloha respect? This excursion had all. “Expensive” ? Yeah. Worth it cuz: not fake tourist-y and felt cared for and actually part of experience? 150% yes. Just do it!

    Nirmala_M, Jan 2022
    This is a very interesting and traditional experience, if you want to learn about the Hawaiian culture and food then this is for you. The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable, however it was not my cup of tea and for that reason I did not like it.
    Response from Host, Jan 2022
    Aloha, Thank you for sharing. We do strive to bring an authentic cultural experience filled with hands on activities and learning.
    Wonderful experience
    Susan_S, Jan 2022
    The cultural and historical education elevated the trip from a sunset cruise to a lifelong memory. We would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking to learn about Hawaiian culture.

    Authentic, amazing, fun, cultural immersion
    Bhoomi_B, Dec 2021
    We went as party of 4 including our kids age 8 and 10y old. The captain and talented crew were amazing! This experience was authentic and taught us so much about Hawaiian culture in a gorgeous and intimate setting. THANK YOU! One of the highlights of our trip! Mahalo🙏🏽🙏🏽
    Response from Host, Jan 2022
    I am glad you find us to be one of your highlights while visiting Hawaii. I know the teachers and crew work hard to give a safe and fun educational excursion. Thank you for the great review!
    Authentic old Hawaii
    Luana_H, Dec 2021
    This was an educational experience, not a booze cruise. Hawaiian educators taught us some music and words, helped us pound poi, and fed us some authentic foods. Anela and our other guides, and Captain Rob, made it magical.
    Response from Host, Dec 2021
    Mahalo for joining us on a sunset cruise and the wonderful review.
    Heart & Soul of Hawaii
    Barbara_B, Nov 2021
    What a beautiful and memorable experience with Captain Rob & crew. Learn from on board historian, mele's, food & drink, and Oahu views from the ocean. My brother lives in Oahu, and he found it just as interesting as I did! Departed feeling relaxed and one step closer to feeling like a local. Keep up the great work!
    Response from Host, Nov 2021
    Thank you for the sweet review! We enjoyed hosting you, Capt Rob and crew!
