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!!

This is one of the nicest things you can do in Waikiki, great afternoon spent on the water, the food is good & the crew couldn't be friendlier! Good opportunity to see Waikiki from the water! Get the Groupon deal & it is even a better deal fabulous from start to finish!

We had a few friends visiting from out of town so we joined them on this cruise (we purchased a Groupon; $45 for the dinner cruise). At the Groupon price, this is a great cruise. At the regular price, I would recommend skipping it. They don't really take you out and it seemed to be a lot of back and... More

I was expecting to go out off Waikiki, do some snorkeling at Turtle canyon and "maybe" see "a" turtle, WRONG! I seen at least 16 giants in our area. Pretty cool to have them surface right beside you. I would definitely do it again. Just wish I would have brought my underwater camera. The crew are fantastic. The boat is... More

The captain, Johnny, and crew were really great. They go out of their way to show you a good time. We took all three tours offered, the afternoon tour is the most relaxing, and the views of Waikiki are spectacular!

My husband and I had a great morning on the Makani, where we sent snorkeling with the giant Sea Turtles. It was really amazing to be floating in the water watching those magnificent creatures. Also, the water was bluer than I've ever seen water before and Honolulu looked beautiful from the boat. The staff on the boat were really pleasant... More

Crew is great Amy works soo hard, Akoni is super funny and friendly and Captain Johnny kept us all safe and sailing smoothly.... More
