the BACKGROUND: I'm not scuba certified, but my significant other, and his 5 friends are, so I went along just to snorkel while they dove (West Oahu - 2 Tank). While we were sailing out and to my surprise, I discovered they offered an INTRO LESSON TO SCUBA. the PRE-DIVE: While the others were dropped in for their first dive,... More

Everything about this adventure was fantastic...Everything was explained before we departed and the cruise out was relatively smooth even in choppy water. The crew (Capt Josh, Jacob & Barry) were knowledgeable and helpful in all aspects. Family of six had a great time in the water snorkeling with sea turtles and other sea life...simply amazing creatures. Barry even took the... More

We booked two Hawaii Nautical trips on Oahu. The first was a three hour snorkeling adventure with dolphin sighting which left out of a harbor near Ko Olina. The staff was great and our family of four had a great time. We went back to our hotel and told the rest of our family how great it was so we... More

We went on the 2-hour afternoon snorkel trip. It was a small group with several children, including my own. The first thing I noticed was the 3-man crew was not friendly. They seemed like local guys annoyed by the tourists who want to come snorkel and mess up their brand new catamaran... Once we got to the location, they explained... More

The company offers several different catamaran experiences. We booked the Firework Cruise. I had very high expectations for this experience based on the many excellent reviews however I had mixed feelings with the experience overall. The first minor disappointment was reading about the brand new boat that many reviewers had just started mentioning. Upon arrival I realized that we would... More

A local recommended Hawaii Nautical our of Wainae Harbor for their sunset dinner cruise. Her husband is a microbiologist, and they know way too much about food-borne illness--so when they say 'we LIKE them' I know the food is good. And it was. I had crab cakes, mahi-mahi, salad, potatoes, taro bread roll, and chicken. The staff was delightful--captain and... More

We just got off the boat this afternoon and it was one of the best things we did in Hawaii. Dave the captain and all of his crew were outstanding. They could not do enough to ensure we all were having a good time. The boat was brand new (5 weeks old) and it was great. We saw tons of... More

I got this as a birthday gift for my husband, and we both really enjoyed it. From the pick-up until we were back at the hotel, we had a great time! The crew were a lot of fun, but also made sure everybody was safe on the boat at all times. They had a lot of knowledge about the spinner... More
