We ended our trip with a sunset cocktail cruise around waikiki. It was beautiful and a lot of fun. The crew is extremely friendly and fun. It was a perfect catamaran ride around the island and we made friends with other people on board. It was a small group of people which was a nice intimate setting. Great for couples,... More

We purchased the Dolphin Snorkel and Sail and attended on August 20, 2014. We chose this company because of the way they cared about the sea life. They advised why it was not advisable to swim with the dolphins that are not in captivity, as well as how to handle, or not to handle the sea turtles that you saw... More

My wife and I had a great 2 tank dive experience with Hawaii Nautical. The staff was great, especially our dive master Bryan. The first dive was to a plane wreck which was pretty cool. We also encountered a scorpion fish, eels, an octopus, and tons of fish.

The Hawaii Nautical catamaran, staff, food, and bar were all top-notch. Definitely a more upscale experience than you'll find in most other catamaran excursions. The boat was large and very nice, and it wasn't at all crowded. There were several dolphins all around the boat. Although we werent' allowed to swim with the dolphons due to existing regulations, it didn't... More
