4 adults, 2 teens We loved the crew and the catamaran. Great food and drinks. The morning cruise enjoyed seeing over 50 dolphins. Captain Mash was super nice, funny and professional. The evening cruise was our adult night out. Relaxing and fun with more good food and drinks. When we came upon a huge heavy mound of rope net floating... More

Truly enjoyable sunset sail while in Waikiki on business. My wife joined me at the tail end of a work trip to the islands. We are not quite ready to buy our own boat so we get out on charters whenever we can. Therefore we have a broad base to judge experiences. One of the best we've been on. This... More

Hawaiian Nautical provided a great boating experience. The guides were fun, knowledgeable, and energetic. The food was very good, and there were plenty of beverages provided. We were able to see dolphins swimming near the boat on the way out. Snorkeling was amazing and the guides provided excellent safety and support. We saw several sea turtles and the guides even...

I would highly recommend this experience. We took the tour out of Waianae boat harbor and immediately saw a pod of dolphins. The staff was humorous and safety was of utmost importance to them. The boat was so nice and clean and the views were spectacular. Absolutely worth it for all ages and an unforgettable highlight of our vacation. There... More

Our family had a wonderful day on a catamaran. We scheduled this trip through the Aulani, and just as the hotel is wonderful, so is this company. The men that work on the boat are all friendly and very knowledgeable. We first sailed for about one hour, while a man serenaded us on his ukelele. He also told stories about... More

Booked through Aulani excursions. Not enough info prior to trip. Pickup was 12:45pm, did not know lunch was provided as well as both alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks. Great afternoon. Knowledgeable staff. Good snorkeling.
