Wonderful experience and so glad we went. Beautiful sunset of course but the overall experience made it that much better. Would certainly reccomend them and book again. Was also really nice to be around a crew that had passion for what they do.

Highlight of our trip
Satwinder_G, Sep 2023
Definitely worth every penny. Enjoyed the best views of the city and sunset. Fireworks at the end on Friday night was the cherry on top.
We had a great experience...

Highly recommended

Cannot recommend this experience enough!! Our guides were fantastic and so friendly. The snorkeling was so much fun and the sunset was absolutely beautiful. If you’re going to Oahu, this is a MUST!!
The best part of our trip!
Amanda_P, Jul 2023
Hands down the best Catamaran cruise my family and I have ever taken. Captain Sam and Deckhand Nick are the best! Professional yet laid back and personable. They made us laugh, we saw beautiful marine life, the sunset was obviously stunning. All around a fantastic time for a great price! We will definitely book again and request Sam and Nick !!!
Best thing in Hawaii
Gretchen_D, Jun 2023
This was the best thing we have done in Hawaii! The boat was just lovely. Captain and crewman were very knowledgeable about the area and sea life. We snorkeled and swam with turtles. The dolphins even put on a show. Would definitely recommend hands down. Much better than one of the larger tours.
Want to have a memorable experience? BOOK THESE GUYS!!!

Went there with my four daughters. Captain Sam and his first mate were beyond welcoming and friendly. Two hours went by so fast because they made sure the fun never stopped. They had snorkeling gear for everyone, even helped my 10yr old get over her fear of snorkeling. Plenty of water, juice on the boat as well. When in Hawaii, want a private boat tour and have fun, this is a must do. My daughters keep talking about how much fun they had. Not sure if this review reflects it, but THIS IS A MUST DO PRIVATE CHARTER IN HAWAII!
Fantastic sunset snorkel cruise!
Molly_M, May 2023
We had a fantastic sunset cruise and snorkeling adventure thanks to Francesco and Sam. They were perfect hosts. We had seating for everyone, refreshments and snorkel gear. They were always concerned with our comfort and dedicated the evening to our wants and needs. It was fantastic to have the boat to ourselves and our intimate celebration. We highly recommend Francesco and Sam for your sunset cruise, they even had a pod of spinner dolphins show up for us!
Friendly, fun, and unforgettable
Megan_A, May 2023
Francesco and Nick made this adventure so enjoyable... magical even. They had fun energy, provided assistance if we needed it, shared their expertise and experience, and never stopped smiling. When looking online for things to do, it's hard to tell what you are going to get. I am so glad that I booked this trip. My husband, who was skeptical about the whole thing before we went, hasn't stopped saying great things about the experience. My son, who is 20, said he had the time of his life. We snorkeled, saw dolphins, and watched a beautiful sunset. It was definitely worth every penny.
Vacation Highlight 🛥

We got to snorkel with turtles and saw whales! And to finish it off with a breathtaking sunset. The crew was fun, interactive and informative. recommend 100%
Worth the money
Cynthia_W, Feb 2023
We had a great sunset cruise on the catamaran. It was so nice having the entire Catamaran to ourselves! Crew were very nice and friendly. Will definitely book this tour again next time we are in Waikiki.
My favorite event in Hawaii
Yvette_F, Feb 2023
This is my favorite event in Hawaii, I've been to the big island, saw devil fishes and volcanos, even went surfing, but this is still my favorite. The sailors with us are experienced and had a very good attitude. On the boat, you can relax and enjoy the view of beautiful sky and seas, the sailors will also show you whales, fishes and dolphins, it's unlucky for us because we saw all of these just except Megashark, maybe next time🤣🤣, we also went snorkeling and fed fishes.Anyways, if you don't know what to do in Honolulu, this is a very good option.
The best option!
Colby_A, Nov 2022
Great sunset cruise! Snorkeling was great and we were able to see a few turtles! The private cruise is definitely the best way to do it! Appreciate the great evening, thank you!

Wonderful experience - snorkeling in Turtle Canyon plus spinner dolphins alongside as we sailed! Fantastic captain and crew! Highly recommend! Well worth the money!
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Great time out on the water with you, mahalo for coming out.
Amazing sunset views
Rebecca_J, Sep 2021
Awesome experience. Very chill. This was the highlight of our trip to Oahu. The guys took us out into the harbor and the trip was pretty smooth. We parked a little away from Diamond Head where it was calm so we could jump into the water. We got to see and touch a sea urchin that was down in the reef. We also got to see schools of fish on our trip. Then we drove back to the harbor with the most incredible sunset views. Highly recommend this trip to anyone spending time in Oahu.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We're so happy you all were able to join us out on the water!
Great excursion!
Kimarie_M, Jul 2021
Francesco and Aaron were excellent captains and guides. We saw lots of turtles at Turtle Canyon and the bean bags on the front of the boat were fun and comfortable. We were blessed with a beautiful sunset.
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Thanks for joining us! We had such a nice afternoon with you all.
Best time ever!
