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.

the Friday night dinner cruise watching the fireworks was a wham bam thank you mam kind of experience. The crew were friendly, the food was not so special, the fireworks great but the disappointment was the unseemly haste in getting back to the pier, possibly before the last firework hit the water. For the top end price - it did... More

My boyfriend and I purchased the Oahu Card that gives us access to several attractions. We wanted to board this sail to watch the fireworks on Friday. They charged us extra $$ but it was worth it. The view of the fireworks were amazing, the food and the service were amazing too. Very well done.

We went on the friday night dinner cruise and it was a lovely evening. Not the best weather but the food was fantastic and the views of the island and the fireworks were brilliant.

Great boat and trip that doesn't go very far thought. You get a prime view of the sunset and Waikiki with a good home made drink invited by the bartender (high tide).

We always try to go on a catamaran sail when in Honolulu. It is very relaxing and peaceful. We enjoy the views of the shoreline and island. We really liked that this afternoon cruise went far out from the shore and a little past Diamond Head. We liked seeing the view of the other side of Diamond Head, Diamond Head... More

We do this sailing trip every time we go to Hawaii and it has been excellent every time!! Captain Jon and the crew are great. We saw 6 turtles on our last trip and they were close enough that we could touch them!! Would recommend this trip to anyone that goes to Waikiki!!
