We did the sunset cruise. I paid extra from the Go Ohau card to upgrade to the sunset dinner cruise. It was OK at best. The dinner was similar to a buffet Chinese take out; the catarman boat is clean but a lot smaller than I expected. The boat ride can be pretty choppy so if you tend to get... More

A very lovely 2-hr cruise on a spacious catamaran with both inside and outside seating. It leaves promptly at 5p and returns at 7p., when the night lights of Honolulu begin to glow. I can't say that I would recommend this for very small children, because there were quite a few on my cruise who were distressed or sick because... More

Since this tour is available 365 days a year, we signed up for it to go on New Year's day for their 1pm Go Oahu Card sailing. In the winter the chance of rain is higher, but luckily we had sunshine out on the water for the whole ride, though there were some threatening clouds that were approaching as we... More

The dock is just minutes drive from Waikiki beach. A small tip: right east of the dock is a park and parking there is free. Direct opposite the dock there are some shops and you can each lunch there before your 1pm sail. The day we took the catamaran was perfect weather, calm ocean, we say 2 whales passing by... More

Our cruise included 2 drink tickets and dinner, which was a decent buffet. It was a gorgeous sunset across the water. Unfortunately the waters were rough and my friend had a bit of a problem with nausea but the staff was incredibly helpful. As the sun was setting we saw a pod of whales and the stars were brilliant after... More

This place is a scam!!! I booked this $100 reservation with them only because they accepted the GoOahu Card. Well when I arrived with them they told me they are not affiliated with them and have nothing to do with them. Meanwhile other people there were also in line trying to use their card. They have signage up at their... More

This was way worth it!! We purchased the cruise through Groupon. The food looked amazing but we were too busy enjoying the views and water to eat. I highly recommend this!

My wife found a great deal on groupon for the sunset dinner cruise on this catamaran. We booked it for New Year's Eve and overall, we had a great experience. The ship is located at a port a little ways outside of Waikiki. It was a pretty easy cab ride. It may be walkable from the most western hotels on... More

We booked through the Go Oahu card on the last afternoon of our holiday, as a final activity. We arranged for a transfer from our area and waited 25 minutes only to call and be told, that the driver had come and gone. Since we we're the only ones at the pick-up location and had been there before the allotted... More

Makani Is a great dinner cruise on a sail catamaran. The peace of a sail boat is hard to beat and the generous and healthy buffet dinner satisfied all age groups in our party. It's a great way to see the lights of Honolulu at night. The boat never felt crowded and the crew were helpful and friendly.
